"First time i've used a heat gun and for the money you can't go wrong with this. It's well built, has great attachments and so far has endured 40 hours of paint removal without a glitch. Halfway through removing a lot of paint I bought another one so me and the missus could have our own and at such a low price even if it didn't last beyond this room would still be worth it!
I can also highly recommend, the Harris Tungsten Carbide Scaper, item no. 45940.
- When used with this heat gun it really does make paint removal very clean and easy - the paint just needs heating/softening slightly and the scraper does the rest in a pulling action, not pushing like a normal scraper."
"Boughti this as I'd never used one before so didn't want to pay megga bugs. Used it now on a door frame. Absolutely brilliant easy to use and took no time to do. Even if it lasts the one year guarantee well worth it. Would definitely buy again."
"Having just lost my fairly old (and not cheap) B&D heat gun to a "melt-down", I did not want to pay a lot for another. I was very surprised at how good this heat gun is, especially as it comes with 4 nozzles for various tasks. Nice feature is the ability to stand the gun on its back, heat flow upwards, to allow hands free use - not sure what H&S people might say though. One misleading, though very minor, point about the description is the 2 heat settings, 2 air flow settings - these are not independent - changing the heat setting also changes the air flow setting. Additionally, the web site states 2 year guarantee but the guarantee on/in the box states 1 year. But a bargain nonetheless - hope it lasts."
"I bought this after reading the reviews. I hoped for the best, and was in all honesty a bit dubious. It is fantastic. I did not use the attachments although there is a good selection of them. Just aim at the paint, it bubbles and scraped off. There must have been 20 layers of gloss, and it got through it all so so easy. And while it could have a longer lead, its fine with an extension. However I do wish I had not started the work, but this will make it easier, much easier. Easy to use, I am partially sighted, and although I did manage to burn the carpet, and my knuckles and my foot this was my fault lol."
"Don't know about reliability yet as not had long enough to tell. But this little kiddie does the job. Two settings and preforms like model twice the price. Well done to Screwfix for saving us money yet again. ***** 5 stars from me"
"Bought one of these to replace a failed Bosch I'd had for years. Others said they were good so I went cheap. It seems fine although I have not used it yet! So cannot say how good on reliability I don't know how they can be made so cheap."
"Easy to use with four different types of nozzle this Energer heat gun is ideal for many DIY jobs around the house. It is very light to hold and comes with it's own stand, outstanding value for money, would recommend."
"Bought this because I had left my Bosch one on another job and it was cheaper to buy this than going to pick up my Bosch one . I used this one for about six hours over two days and it worked fine,no problems at all. I don`t know how long it will last but at less than £10 it has paid for its self on this job!"
