Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KurtLNaples Great tool!
This heat gun is very easy to use and performs well. Milwaukee is a great name and here is another example of how good they are. Dual heat settings really help get the job done quickly and easily.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ProCarpenter234 Does Not Come Close to Its Rated Temperatures
I have a Milwaukee 8975 dual temperature heat gun.
I have measured the output at both the low and high settings. I used a Klein digital temperature meter to measure the temperatures. The temperature probe was placed 1 inch in front of the nozzle.
The maximum heat at the nozzle on the high setting would only reach 600° F. At the low setting the temperature would only reach 360° F.
The temperature would also fluctuate approximately 40° at either setting high or low.
This tool does not even come close to it's rated temperatures of 570° F and 1000° F.
Do not buy this tool.
I feel that Milwaukee is increasingly degrading the quality of their tools to meet the home-improvement market.
This is sad to me as a professional, as Milwaukee used to be a brand that I trusted.

This heat gun is quick to get to temperature and stays hot. It is perfect for sweating out pvc pipe fittings without distorting or melting them.
