This gun is inexpensive but not cheap. It looks and feels like a tool several times the price. It produces enormous heat at its 1500W High setting; Genesis claims you can sweat-solder plumbing pipes with it. Be careful! I'll probably use the 750W Low setting for everything.
The nozzle attachments are a heavier gauge than expected and fit securely. Definitely not cheap-feeling.
I like the design feature that lets it lie securely on its back on a workbench, aiming up so you can manipulate the work with two hands if needed.
The seam at the front of the handle is a little uncomfortable. I'll probably file it smooth. No big deal.
I saw quite a lot of white smoke coming out of the gun after couple of minutes of use; it smelled like hot production residues (oil, insulation, paint, etc.) coming off. It billowed out the shell of the gun like some movie prop, but diminished quickly and was completely gone after about 5 minutes of running. It is perfectly normal, though this gun's enormous heat output gave it the Oscar for best short duration fume production by a non-smoke grenade I've ever seen. I bet many buyers return these guns after seeing the smoke.It would have been wise for Genesis to "burn it in" at the factory.
Had I no experience with the smell of real fires and burned electrical parts, I might have dropped it and breathlessly called 911 from the driveway. I suggest you "burn it in" outdoors or near a window so you don't smell up the house.
As Douglas Adams would say: Don't panic!
To start with, boy does this thing get hot! Too bad they don't specify how hot in the description (not that I found). Just the wattage is given. The two temps listed on the gun are 572 & 1000 degrees. Hotter than I need, but I wanted an inexpensive heat gun mainly for handling shrink tubing. I just didn't expect it to be so hot. The body stays completely cool while in use.
The gun weighs only 1 pound, not including the cord weight--I weighed it on a sensitive postal scale. The cord brings it to about 1.4 pounds. Pretty light & easy to handle. The heat gun can rest flat on its back, balanced by the handle. The air intake is on the sides and the back is not ventilated, making it safe to operate in this position. The switch stays in whatever position you set it, with the lower temp also having a lower fan speed. The cord is not grounded, which is fine since they body is plastic.
All of the nozzle accessories pictured are provided, along with instructions. The build quality is OK, though not as stellar as a Porter Cable. It's solid & easy to use, even if the label sticker doesn't quite fit correctly. As should be expected, after the first time you use it a little smoke comes out. Shouldn't be anything to worry about--it's a heat gun!
So far, I would recommend this is an inexpensive and basic heat gun.
Another thing that pointed to poor quality assurance was the fact that some of the chrome plated accessories had the chrome coating chipping off in big chunks exposing the rusted metal underneath. It doesn't quite inspire confidence in a product when a manufacturer ships their products in such a condition.
I was able to return and get a complete refund for the product in a very timely manner.
I have used it to melt solder on a board that I was working on, it did a great job. In the low setting the air flow was not high enough to blow the parts or solder away. So, I heated up the circuit board until the solder was fluid, and then I used tweezers to remove the faulty item before the solder hardened. I used an iron to add solder to the empty pads, so that I could add a replacement, and then I fluxed the pins on the replacement chip, and laid it on the solder pads, and used the heat gun to melt the new solder and it dropped snuggly down in place. Perfect fit, and the unit powered up working the first try. This was a small pitch surface mount IC, there is no way I could have soldered this on by hand, or even remove the original part. I was resigned to throwing it out, so I decided I would try this, without much hopes of it working, but it really impressed me.
There are many other more expensive units out there, but I really don't know what they could have that this one doesn't. Keep in mind that I haven't had it very long, so maybe there is a life-time issue, but I am doubting it. The thing is solid, and I can tell it is made well. The heat is impressive and very fast. This is all you should need for a heat gun, in my opinion.
