Makita UK has added a new, versatile Heat Gun (HG6531C) to its range. The latest addition is simple to use and has been designed to make work on site easier. It has pre-set functions for a wide variety of tasks including drying, shrinking, moulding and stripping paint and varnish as well as soldering metal and welding plastic.

The HG6531C heat gun is available in 110V and 240V versions, delivering 1400 and 2000 watts of power respectively. It has five air flow volume settings to produce air flows of between 200 and 550 litres per minute. Using a simple push button on the tool, the temperature can also be adjusted in 5° increments from 50°C up to 650°C to suit the application.

It features 14 pre-set air flow volume and temperature combinations for easy selection of the correct settings for a specific task. The name of each setting is displayed clearly on the easy to read LCD display located on the top of the tool. In addition, it includes a 50°C cooling mode for rapid cooling when changing the nozzle.

The new heat gun has overheat protection and double insulation for safety. It also features an integrated rear stand to support the gun in an upright position for operator convenience and to reduce the chance of burns to the user or surrounding areas.

The lightweight and durable tool is easy to handle and has an ergonomic soft rubber grip for comfortable operation. A range of nozzles and accessories are available including glass protection, reflector, reduction, wide slot and welding nozzles.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita said: “The HG6531 has been designed to make work simpler with the new pre-set functions and easy to adjust heat and air flow settings. It complements our existing range of heat guns and related consumables to give even greater customer choice for a wider variety of applications.”
