I use them daily for up to an hour a day. The wagner ones you can get here at home depot are ok but they don't last very long. Then, I got the Makita. What a difference! I love the high velocity of the air delivery. Believe it or not, but air velocity is just as important and heat when it comes to drying and this gun has both! I've had it for over 2 months so far so it is definitely a winner so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita heat gun I have used many different heat guns over thirty years and the Makita heat gun is the most reliable and most durable with regards to longevity. Very lite and controllable thermostat provides accurate heat temperatures! I use it 20 hours a week. The only reason I had to replace it was when it got wet! It is very reasonably price! Well worth the money!

I use a pair of heavy gardening gloves made of suede and my hands are protected. I am a female who is inexperienced with power tools, and even I can use it. It's great for stripping paint out of crevices on old woodwork. Get a scraper for your other hand and you are good to go.

This new redesigned model looks nicer and the trigger is better but they are poor quality. They will never last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita heat gun I used this to heat my sound deadening material for a door panels. It worked great. The variable settings on top allowed a more custom heat setting so you don't cook your project. The numbers on the top come with a chart to aid in the correct setting. The two speed trigger comes in handy for sensitive heat prone projects like leather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool Makita 12-Amp Heat Gun (Model # HG551V) heats up quickly and stays very very hot. It is very easy to use. It allows you to adjust blower speed and set the temperature you desire. I definitely recommend using gloves when handling this heat gun. I have used it for multiple projects and so far no complain with it. Quality seems to be good and should last for a long time. I would recommend this product.
