Rated 5 out of 5 by ToddsReviews from Lightweight and adjustable - I love this gun I've used many heat guns, but this is my first digital gun. This is also the first gun that I've used that has multiple heat settings (well, other than high/low). I think that's great and I really appreciate how the instructions give recommendations for which setting to use based on what you're using it for. Late last fall I was battling cold temperatures while trying to finish painting the barn. I tried drying spots with my heat gun with varying success. I ended up burning and bubbling it in places. Not good. This gun has lower settings for drying paint.Sweet. There are also settings for removing paint, removing stuck bolts (never thought of that), softening plastic, etc. Another really cool feature in my opinion is the auto cool down feature. I've always switched my gun to cold and run it until I feel cold air. My understanding is that if you simply set it down hot it would burn out. This gun lets you set it down and it will run exactly as long as it needs to in order to cool down. It monitors the air temperature. sweet! I think they could have done a better job with the controls. Rather than cycling through modes with two buttons (time tested, but crude) I think they should have used a multi selector knob with each position labeled with a sample application. This would not only make it easier to use, but also eliminate the need to keep a cheat sheet (or the box) with the gun so you know which setting to use. Unless a competing product offers such controls I guess it's not a big deal. Last night I used it for woodworking glue up. I wanted to "size" endgrain, which absorbs glue and robs the joint. Normally I'd have to wait for that first application to dry before regluing but it dawned on me to try the heat gun on low. Wow. That's a great trick. In a matter of minutes it was dried and I could reapply and finish the job. I like the gun much better than my older manual wagner gun and I definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wilber from Lifted tile really well. Set Temp. on 450-550 and fan on HIGH and was able to lift the tile easily with a 2 1/2" putty knife. Turned itself completely off twice. Otherwise it was a gem

Why does gun shut off when on high and above 850?
I'm sorry to hear that your gun is behaving that way, as it should not be shutting off on you at all during use. Please give us a call at 1-800-328-8251 and we will happily do our best to help resolve this issue.

Will this heat gun help remove glued on 3 inch wide cottage bead board?
Unfortunately, the heat will likely have a hard time permeating the board to soften and release the adhesive. Chances are that you may end up burning the board in the process. Feel free to call us at 1-800-328-8251 if you have any further questions.

How far will the heat travel and can it heat an enclosed space?
I built a clay oven with an interior space of about 200cu.in. To heat it, I use wood to make wood-fired pizza. If I want to reduce my use of wood, could I use this heat gun to heat the cooking chamber? For example, could i set the gun on about 800F, point it into the chamber and let it run until the temperature of the whole cooking chamber has risen to 800F? (The cooking chamber includes a 4 inch thick clay dome roof and a fire brick cooking surface.) I realize this is an alternate use of the tool. I actually learned about your device by watching a video that used a heat gun to roast coffee beans!
Unfortunately, that type of application is not anything that we have tested the unit for, and therefore cannot make any recommendations or suggestions as far as doing so.

Can I use it in europe 220V outlets?
I couldn't find info on a box about voltage. I'm trying to use HT3500 or HT1000 overseas (220V) is it safe/compatible? If not which Heat gun could I use? thank you.
We do not recommend using our HT3500 or HT1000 overseas. They are designed for use on the North American power grid and using them on 220V may damage them. Doing so will void the warranty. You can contact www.wagner-group.com for offerings you can use in Europe.

How long is the electrical cord?
How long is the electrical cord on the HT3500? What is the max length of an extension cord can I use to extend the reach of this gun as I am working on the exterior of a home.
The electrical cord is 6 feet long. In general, the longer you wish to extension cord to be the heavier gauge it needs to be. As long as you use a cord rated for 14 amps, you should be able to use whichever length you like.

What stand is being used in this picture
The picture shows the gun being used hands free, but only shows the nozzle, not the back portion and the stand being used to hold the gun. What do you have/recommend for this?> Thanks.
We do not make separate stands that can be purchased, however the HT3500 will balance itself on its backend facing upwards like in the picture.
