Heat guns are a handy piece of equipment that can be used for a whole range of tasks on site, and it’s the larger air volume and higher temperature from the Metabo HG 18 LTX 500 that will deliver maximum performance. This lightweight but powerful mobile heat gun heats up rapidly and is ready to use at 300°C in just five seconds. Not only that, but the handle is slim and rubberised for improved safety, and the tool includes an LED worklight to illuminate darker areas.
The hot air gun comes with two matching nozzles, which can be used, among other functions, to shape, crimp, weld, and remove varnish. The 8.0Ah battery provides over 20 minutes of runtime and has a display feature to clearly convey charge status.
With a powerful air flow of up to 200 litres per minute, the HG 18 LTX 500 is ideally suited for tasks such as shrinking cables, welding and remoulding plastic, as well as foiling or the removal of paint and adhesive residue.
Operation with one push button is both easy and intuitive, and a weight of 1.6kg (including the LiHD battery pack) means it can be taken anywhere. Even those hard-to-reach spots far away from power outlets are no problem, such as when foiling at window fronts.
The mobile heat gun offers two temperature settings – 300 and 500°C. For optimal power output, it’s recommended to use a Metabo 18V battery pack with a capacity of 8.0Ah. The HG 18 LTX 500 is compatible with all the manufacturer’s accessory nozzles.
