  • Higher-quality finish
  • Today we’re taking a look at two near-commercial grade finisher spray systems. Fuji is known for making industrial quality equipment at prices that, while certainly not low, are more affordable than many products of similar quality.

    Both the Fuji Mini-Mite 3 and the 4 hold true to this standard.

    They’re extremely versatile, able to work with virtually any appropriate material that you can throw at them.

    Both are also portable and, perhaps most importantly, both are capable of delivering a professional finish without issue.

    The real difference is that one finisher is just a little bit more professional than the other. The Fuji Mini-Mite 3 features an impressive three-stage turbine that will be able to move and oxidize paint better than the majority of sprayers on the market.

    Indeed, the Fuji Mini-Mite 3 is one of the most powerful three-stage spray systems that we’ve seen. But it isn’t more powerful than the four-stage spray system that we see in the Fuji Mini-Mite 4.

    While both systems are suited for professional caliber work, the Mini-Mite 4 is just a little bit more suited.

    However, you do pay for the extra quality. The Mini-Mite 4 also happens to be more expensive than the 3. Is it worth the hike in price? Let’s explore that question as we dive into our review.

    What are the differences between them?

    Price: Point for Fuji Mini-Mite 3

    As we mentioned in the introduction, the Mini-Mite 3 beats out the 4 in terms of price. This is going to be a big plus for do-it-yourselfers who want top-level quality for the best price that they can get.

    The nice thing about the Mini-Mite 3 is that it’s almost identical to the 4, except in one area which we will discuss shortly.

    Because the two tools are so similar, they’re going to yield similar results. Due to its high performance and moderate price, potential shoppers who won’t be using their spray system for a living may well be drawn to the Mini-Mite 3 over the 4.

    Features: Tie

    We don’t normally list ties in this section, but it does seem worth reiterating just how similar these tools are.

    Both systems feature fully adjustable nozzles, ergonomic spray guns, noise reduction covers, and a design that is optimized for transportation.

    The Mini-Mite 4 is ostensibly engineered to be exactly like the Mini-Mite 3, with the exception of the turbines…

    The Turbines: Point for the Fuji Mini-Mite 4

    Turbines are what really separate the Mini-Mite 3 and the Mini-Mite 4. The turbine is what largely gives the sprayer its power and oxidizes whatever you’re running through the system to produce a high-quality finish.

    The more turbines, the better.

    As we mentioned in the introduction, you get three turbines with the Mini-Mite 3 and four turbines with the Mini-Mite 4.

    For the amateur, this difference may not seem extremely significant. But if you’re going to be using this tool professionally, the elevated level of quality that the Mini-Mite 4 is able to produce may prove more impactful.

    What the Users Say:

    You’ll be pleased to hear that the user reception for both tools is really positive. We hear from amateurs and professionals alike who use both tools with success (which should appease pros who were on the fence about the Fuji Mini-Mite 3).

    The biggest praise that we hear regarding either tool definitely pertains to the finish. Users of every skill level are very pleased with the results that both tools achieve.

    We’ve heard complaints that the Fuji Mini-Mite 4 runs a little bit loud, which is fairly typical of sprayers, and we’ve also heard users mention that the adjustment knob on both units is somewhat flimsy.

    These things aside, both tools are highly appreciated by the people who use them.


    For the average user, the difference between these tools is going to be negligible. If you are a do-it-yourselfer who just wants to finish a countertop or tackle any other project that needs a sprayer, the Mini-Mite 3 will almost definitely be able to get the job done.

    The extra oomph that the Mini-Mite 4 offers is great. But for the average user, there’s no need to spend the extra money.

    This isn’t necessarily to say that the Mini-Mite 3 “wins” in the head-to-head. Quite the contrary. It just wins for the layman.

    If you’re a professional, or if you’re the type of person who is willing to pay a good deal to enjoy uncompromising quality, then the Mini-Mite 4 will be for you.

    But of course, these are only suggestions. At the end of the day, only you can decide which sprayer is right for your unique needs.
