Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile, nice kit, good heat range I was initially concerned about the light weight/feel, but found this to be an advantage when manipulating the gun and workpieces at the same time ( I was using to bend complex shapes in plexiglass). The simple stand is the reason I bought it for hands-free use and worked well. I was disappointed in a lack of any indication of approximate heat range being selected on the temperature adjusting barrel. January 10, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good... I purchased this heat gun 3 weeks ago online after reading good reviews for it and have not been disappointed. I'm stripping the paint of my house and although the process takes a while the gun is working flawlessly. I love the variable speeds and appreciate having the different nozzles included. June 4, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Can be used for a couple hours straight So far I've been quite happy with this tool. The temperature adjustment is easy and the tool is light enough for me to use for a couple hours straight. I bought this tool to help recycle some old electronics and it has worked quite well for that. My pile of old PCBs has shrunk significantly since this tool arrived. The tool is designed to be able to run upright and it includes a small prop attached to the handle to facilitate this. May 8, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works like a charm I'm very happy with this item. I bought it to roast coffee, and the curved diffuser works great to direct the heat, stir the beans, and blow off chaff. I like the way the variable heat setting is controlled - easy & efficient. Cools down quickly. Cord is good length. December 20, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a quality tool set. Product just as described. Very nice set with nozzles and case. Adjustable heat. Made in Europe, not China, a plus. Item was backordered when I ordered it. I was informed of this and did not have to wait very long to receive it. I shop at my local Home Depot Store. I will now start using their online shopping site as a regular source. February 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Milwaukie heat gun provides excellent results at paint removal. The item for purchase was on back order at time of purchase. I inquired as the how long the back order would take and I received a quick response with an approximate time of delivery. The actual delivery was two weeks earlier than expected. I am very pleased with the purchase. March 20, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked better than expected I expected it to take longer to install heat shrink tubing on a wiring harness but with the variable temp setting using the hook shaped attachment and hands free stand I completed the job much sooner than expected. It makes it much easier to complete a job that most people would avoid when you have the proper tools. The minor things that bothered me were that the woman at Milwaukee seemed annoyed that I asked questions about the products, no one within 50 miles stocked the kit and the gun is very light weight making it feel like a childs toy, I expected a more heavy duty or hefty feel to it. Over all I'm very happy with the tool. March 27, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product could use more air flow other than that it is a great product December 25, 2012
