Summary: a very good heat gun and recommended. HOWEVER, be aware that the reduction nozzle DOESN'T fit, no matter what you do. DO NOT ORDER THE REDUCTION NOZZLE WITH THIS GUN. The box the nozzle comes in says it fits this model of heat gun (along with several others)...BUT IT DOESN'T. I am sending the nozzle back pronto, so we shall see what amazon says shortly.
Summary: Very pleased with this Bosch heat gun, it performs it's duty's well, it is well made and has proved to be very useful in warming items up in the workshop for my vintage restoration work, I also find it useful for melting wax onto foundry patterns when sticking down letters onto the main base plate of the pattern when the wording needs to be changed.
Summary: So far I have found this an excellent piece of kit, largely because it's so hot the paint bubbles up and practically falls off by itself. The cold setting is useful too, for inflating odd items round the house ...
Summary: In the short time I have had the gun i have used it for 2 jobs - it has stripped the 25 years of gloss paint in minutes on the exterior of our house ready for repainting. Also helped remove the roof felt off my children's Wendy House. It's third job will be help me apply the new felt. Without stating the obvious, at its top setting the nossle becomes very hot and be warned it hurts, so be careful in placing this on surfaces when in use.
Summary: The gun is just what I needed for repairing some badly deteriorated paintwork. However it does not come with any attachments and they are pricy. The particular nozzle I wanted to protect the glass in a window was priced at HALF the cost of the gun.
Summary: Did a bit of research before buying this hot air gun and concluded that Bosch was the best. Given that I like Bosch products anyway the buying decision was made. The gun is as you would expect it to be. It is very well made and does exactly what Bosch says it does. I'm completely satisfied with this product.
Summary: I have used this hot air gun a few times now, mostly for drying painted parts. I am restoring a motorcycle so it gets rough use in a garage. My old gun lasted for years with this type of use, not sure of make. If this one lasts as well I will be pleased. It does exactly what I expected and has more settings than my old one. Best of all was the price. I was amazed to get a good brand delivered at this price. Amazon is hard to beat.
