The Milwaukee 8975-6 11.6 Amp Dual Temperature Heat Gun might look a little like your wife's hair dryer, but it really is a serious hand-held high heat throwing machine. With two temperature settings of 570 and 1,000 degrees F, you can pretty much peel the paint off of almost anything without having to worry about the issues that come with open flames. With a continuous duty rating, you can also plan on being able to work this tool non-stop for as long as you need it.
We picked up our test tool at a local industrial supplier and it arrived in a Milwaukee decorated cardboard box. Inside the box was the heat gun and the instruction manual. The Milwaukee 8975-6 11.6 Amp Dual Temperature Heat Gun is made of tough red colored ABS plastic with an easy to hold handle. The heat controls are in the normal place of a trigger. The switch is a three position rocker style with the upper and lower positions being high (1,000 deg F.) and low (570 deg F.) and the middle position being "off". On the back of the heat gun is the air intake and the nozzle end is made of metal with a removable plastic heat shroud. If other shapes of nozzles are needed, they are available separately and simply slip over the metal end. This heat gun was designed to stay cool even if you use it continually and, thanks to the overall weight of only 1.6 pounds, you can use it all day long with minimal fatigue.
