Don't waste your time with any other heat gun. The Makita is the best by far. The temperature adjustment knob is a little bit of a pain to use, but other than that it has the best heat of all the other guns I have used. I used mine to strip all the paint off the exterior of a 2000 sq. ft. bungalow and it is still going strong. I burned up a cheap Harbor Freight model after about 25 hours. I also used the Milwaukie, but it just didn't seem to heat up the paint as well as the Makita. Stripping paint is a boring, tedious job, so treat yourself right and get the job done faster so you can drink beer and watch the grass grow.

Hand down best heat gun on the market. Can't beat the price and durability. This is my second one, had the first for over 8 years, used it just about everyday on the job. Only getting a new one because my co-worker had to move, and TOOK the gun!! I can't blame him though.. if you dont have one, get one.

We have tried just about every heat gun on the market and I can honestly say that this is the "go-to gun". It is dependable, long lasting, and can withstand plenty of abuse.

The $87 price is the only reason this heat gun is not at the top of the best sellers list.

If Makita ever discontinues this item I will be very cross with them.

Pros:

- gets hot enough to melt solder (yes, you can solder copper pipe without flame)
- gets hot fast
- adjustment wheel provides many heat settings (gentle enough to thaw frozen faucets with plastic parts)
- great ergos (easy to hold and turn on/off with one hand)
- thick power cord indicator or true heat capability

Cons:

- accessories not included and expensive
- two accessories discontinued

Discontinued:

110751-A Wide Angle Slit Nozzle for lap welding
110720-A Plastic Welding Nozzle

Still available:

110730-A Large Reflector Nozzle for directing flow around pipes
110702-A 3" Surface Nozzle for heating large areas
110706-A 3/8" Reduction Nozzle for small area air flow
110746-A 3/8" Reflector Nozzle for heat shrink tubing and activating solder in wire connectors

Since Amazon doesn't carry them, I recommend homelumbercom.com (not a typo) as a good source for the remaining accessories.

5 out of 5 stars.

This helped me finish a very difficult exterior paint job. There were many layers of paint on the great redwood siding. Was very difficult sanding and scraping, with sandpaper being constantly clogged, and with the siding getting lots of marks and mars, that bothered me. This tool was very good at heating and softening the paint layers, so that I could remove them much more easily. It really helps to have an assortment of various scraping tools available as well, to help with this. process

I use a heat gun on and off all day, every day on heat shrink tube. I've had many that lasted pretty good and some that worked pretty good but this is the first one I've had that wasn't loud.

At first I tired it side by side with a couple other guns I have to see if the air flow was as powerful, and to my surprise, it was. It's less than half as loud as a Milwaukee and maybe a 10th as loud as a Craftsman.

After using it for one day, I ordered another one...
