Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheInventor Excellent Heat Gun!
This is a great buy! The best feature about this is that you can adjust the temperature setting in a continuous fashion verses discrete settings.
The quality of this gun is exceptional. It feels very sturdy and well made. I recommend this one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick died after a year
I have two of these heat guns and one died the other day. The thermostat failed so the heat gun only get's luke warm. The heat gun maybe has a dozen hours on it. It doesn't get used very often. Generally I like ryobi but this is the first time something has failed. The 2nd one seems to be holding up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrktm525 Great product. Great price.
Got this when it was on sale for half off. Definitely a great purchase. Very good quality. This thing works great! I would recommend this over other industrial heat guns that come in a carry case and all that. You can buy a soft case for this one, which is what I did. There is a company on eBay who sells them. I love these newer green Ryobi products. Their Tek4 line is very innovative.

The variable temperature feature has been very useful in removing everything from paint to window glass. This was an excellent purchase and I have a feeling it will get more use than expected.

Purchased from sale online only. Excellent product, excellent price. Needed one to remove automotive adhesive trim, and it worked as I hoped. Still consider it a very quality product at regular price. Has only been used once so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toetag Works great...so far.
I've used it to remove all the decals from the front of my RV and to refurb 6 of my plastic patio/lawn chairs. Each project required 1+ hrs. of continuous use and so far I've not had one single issue. The unit seems fairly sturdy, heats up quickly and is as comfortable as can be expected. My only complaint is the pic on the box shows a stand but it doesn't actually include one. As with anythings else, only time will tell.

The winter weather in PA froze my downspouts this year. I used the Ryobi heat gun to melt the ice and avoid water/ice damage. The ability to control the variable temperature proved to be handy while melting the ice. The sale price made this purchase all the better!

This gun shoots air powerfully. It's adjustable heat settings are convenient, and wow-- does it get hot. It isn't light weight, but isn't horribly heavy either.

Purchased this for use on a graphic installation on a golf cart and it worked extremely well with it's different temperature settings. Also came in quite handy when assembling my own electrical cables and wiring harnesses for the same project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by toyohtadude Great tool for a great price!
This is the heat gun I'd been waiting for. The ability to micro-adjust the heat to the desired temperature was an important function. The gun is both quick to heat up and cool down. The other very nice feature is that you can stand it up and use it hands-free. Not qualities you'll find in many other heat guns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobC Well designed heat gun...
Nice design. The heat adjustment control is simple, and the indicators are easy to see. The cord is reasonably long, and there are three slip-on tips to better control the air flow. I have another brand heat gun that I have used for sometime on various projects, but the Ryobi is a far nicer tool, with a better control design. Ryobi has always impressed me with the features, design, performance of their products for the cost.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MikeM Nice design & features, but motor/fan on the cheap side
Good price and nice features like adjustable heat range.
The design and materials are also very good.
However, it uses a small motor that is noisy and vibrates at the high speed setting.
It very well may last a long time, but it doesn't sound like it will...

I love this heat gun. It has several different temperature settings, that all work perfectly. This is amazing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PbMaine Well made and accurate
This heat gun is a well made product with infinitely adjustable heat setting. Excellent for applications that require certain temperatures to work like heat shrink tubing and precision drying. Probably overkill if you are going to use as a paint stripper but great for precision tasks.

This is a well designed product. The temperature selection is easy to access and clearly marked. The gun heats up quickly and can be easily adjusted up or down. the stand up design allows for safely and easily resting the gun. I would recommend this to a friend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Great tool, adjustable heat ranges
Great little heat gun. I have a doors in my house with about 10 layers of paint on them. I started with chemical strippers, but after wasting a lot of money and aggravation with the strippers, I bought this little gem. You can set the heat to the proper range to peel off paint, without burning the wood underneath. Great buy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by effj Haven't Even Needed The Highest Setting Yet
I tried all of the temperature settings, and found that the 500 degree setting was all I needed for the job. I have a house from 1926, and decided to strip all of the paint from the exterior side of the front door. At first I used my sander, but found that this heat gun did a much quicker job. I used this heat gun almost continuously for 4 hours, and it worked great. And now for a fresh coat of paint.

I haven't actually measured yet so I don't really know but I have a feeling that the temperature is a little lower than it is indicated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lyse The heat is on...
This heat gun is under 70 bucks including tax. It melts layers of paint like Metallica melts faces.
I am in the midst of a DIY project, stripping 40 wicked old shutters and re-painting them. This heat gun melts the paint so I can just basically wipe it off with a scraper, and we are talking about decades upon decades of paint over this house's accents. The house was built in 1860, and all the shutters are custom- fitted to the oddly sized windows. . \
This heat gun comes with attachments that enable me to get in between the shutter slats. The layers of paint bubble up almost immediately! When I think about all the paint stripper and brushes to apply paint stripper that I will NO LONGER have to purchase , this thing pays for itself, and I just have to say... a heat gun like this is a dwelling-owners must-have!!! And no, I was not paid for this endorsement. I am just a lady with a yen for tools and such.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Gets the job done with adjustability.
I really liked the ability to adjust the heat temp on this gun. I mainly use it for wiring applications and the lowest setting is perfect. With some other heat guns they just go from off to lava so this is a nice experience. The item should feel very light to anyone's standards.
I got it on sale so for that price it was 100% worth it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by braincell38 just okay
A bit disappointed with this one. The fan has some vibration and excess noise at the high setting (more than other models I've tried). Compared the the $15 heat gun I got at HF, this doesn't have higher quality although the Ryobi has adjustable heat which is a plus. Only recommended if you need the adjustable heat.

I've done a lot of paint removal. I've burned out two other heat guns. This product heats quickly and I like the variable settings for both heat and fan speed. Well balanced and comfortable to use.

Variable temperature works wonderfully. Seems this is the only product readily available on the market that has this feature. Additionally there are two fan speeds for further adjustments . Comes with a couple of attachments as well. Could use a case to carry and store

Where we use it once in a while to bend PVC conduit this heat gun is perfect. It was affordable enough to put on every truck.
