Can I turn this heat on/off frequently?

I need to turn on/off the heat gun frequently for my usage. I am not sure whether I can do that for this heat gun without waiting for cooling it down. Also, can I use it continuously for a long time, say 3-4 hours? Thank you. Is it also Ok for Model # 8975-6? Thank you.

11.6-Amp Variable Temperature Heat Gun is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Body Saver This heat gun is the best thing anyone has made for the job I had to do. I removed tiles from a cement floor,hardwood flooring,glue from sub floors. If I never had this heat gun I would still be doing the floors,or be dead. Thanks for selling this great tool the price is good and if it was more money I would have not cared cause it worked so good for me. Thanks again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I purchased this little guy Well...not so little. In fact this gun is a powerhouse, but not too heavy for my small lady hands when heating glue to fuse jewelry bails to cabochons by the hundreds. Only reason it doesn't get a 5 star is because I purchased this thinking I could dial in to the right temp, but cannot. there are specific temp options, I believe 4 of them. The description lists the range of temp which is far greater than any of the other lesser priced options on the market, but doesn't specify the limitations in that range. I needed a heat gun that could get low enough to not crack glass, but hot enough for any other projects. for my needs, a good buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NEW DESIGN IS JUNK. OLD DESIGN BETTER THIS REDESIGN MOVED AIR FLOW FROM BACK TO THE SIDE. THIS CAUSED THE AMOUNT OF AIR FLOW TO COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR. I HAVE BEEN USING THE OLD DESIGN FOR ALMOST 15 YEARS IN MY WINDOW TINTING BUSINESS, THIS NEW DESIGN DOESN'T WORK ANY WHERE NEAR THE SAME. I AM NOW OFFICIALLY SHOPPING FOR A NEW MANUFACTURER WITH SIMILAR DESIGN TO THE OLD DESIGN.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from watch case purchase Overall good tool with handy accessories. However if you order the case for the tool and accessories, you will need part # 42-55-8975. Many places online and tech will tell you to order 48-55-8975 but this tool will not fit in this case do to the way it is made. Again order part# 42-55-8975. This matches the case in the case # in the service parts list. You can save yourself a restocking fee.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good heat gun, but... This is a good heat gun. I've been using this model almost daily for 3 years. With that being said, there is another review which is 1 star and I understand why it was given only 1 star. This model in comparison to the older model does indeed suck. I used the older model for over 6 years and only had to replace it was because i accidentally ran it over with a truck. The old model was lighter in weight and more balanced. This current model feels front heavy and the angle is pointed upwards slightly. That puts a lot of strain on your wrist if you plan on using this daily. I cannot recommend this for daily use. The older model can still be found online. I recommend getting the older version.

This is the purpose that I had when purchasing this unit and it worked beautifully. Just the right temperature so paint Peels and not Burns.
