Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gibby The product could use a few more degrees of heat at the top end.
The DeWalt Heat Gun allowed me to remove old paint much more quickly and much more easily than if I had used a grinder or a sander. If you don't attempt to move too quickly, the heat gun works very well. After removing the paint, a quick use of my orbital sander and the wood is ready to prime and paint. The finished product looks very much like I used new wood. Sometimes I felt the heat gun could use a few more degrees of heat. Otherwise, this is an excellent product and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to remove cracked and blistering paint before priming and painting the wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug My favorite heat gun!
I've owned other brands of professional grade heat guns. This is my favorite. It's much easier to set down safely while still hot. The case is extremely sturdy. I've stripped old paint off wood columns and siding, and actually successfully soldered a radiator leak!

The heat gun works as it should. Would probably recommend different models depending on the need. I would have preferred the one with digital temp read out as I need controled temp in my circumstance and the non controllable one is much less expensive if you don't need controled heat. I will have to have temp monitoring for mine. I have found that Home Depot sells a digital model in another brand, but as normal, there was no one in the stores that had any idea of what I was talking about or what was obviously available.
Otherwise the machine works as it should so far.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1254 Good quality Product
Worked exactly as designed and is the quality normally seen with Dewalt products. The one thing that would make it better is a digital readout for the temperature. I used it to remove cetol from teak wood. It made the job a breeze.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by YSR50GUY Dewalt heat gun
I don't use the gun a lot and the third time I used it the display went wacko and the gun wouldn't heat. I contacted Dewalt to see if there was some particular problem that I could fix myself and they were of no help whatsoever. I tried it on and off a few times then after a couple of months it started working again. Works good for me when it works.

I bought this heat gun to start my charcoal BBQ. Rather than using lighter fluids, I turn this on high, point it at the charcoal and voila, in about 60 seconds, I have hot charcoal. It lessened my start time from 30-40 minutes down to about 10-12.
