wegner ht1000 heat gunWelcome,if you are here then you are surely looking review for the HT1000 heat gun.So let go straight to it now…So it was no surprise this one worked well and seemed to be well constructed. When I use a heat gun, I normally only use it a few minutes at a time; I’m sure it’ll do the job for longer use each time, but for me its perfect and I don’t any see reason why it wouldn’t stand up for long interval use. If it’s a bit more in cost than other brands, I’d still go with Wagner.The HT1000 is an ideal, general purpose heat gun that is suitable for many heating applications ranging from removing paint, old flooring, bending plastics, loosen rusted bolts or thawing frozen pipes.

Note: It has two heat settings by degrees assigned to each one; recommend that whatever work you do, that you check to ensure the heat settings are enough & not too much for the type of work you do (as with any heat gun).

The Wagner HT1000 1200 Watt Heat Gun did an excellent job of helping us remove the glue from our subfloor in preparation for laying our floating flooring. I was surprisingly shocked at how low the price was from I expected it to be! I feel like the design is great for what we used it for, especially the ability to stand it up & let it cool off before putting it away without the worry of it melting something or causing a fire. Looking forward to seeing how we can use it on other projects like removing finishes when refinishing furniture.
