Things are heating up at Ohio Power Tool! Metabo has released a new lightweight heat gun, the HG 18 LTX 500 Cordless Hot Air Gun, for quick, portable and powerful heat. With nozzles for removing varnish, shaping, crimping, welding and much more, this heat gun is truly a new threat to others on the market.

Light & Agile

Some of the key features of the Metabo Hot Air Gun are that it is lightweight and cordless. The cordless design increases agility so that it can reach where corded options cannot. Utilizing an LiHD battery pack (8.0 Ah), this hot air gun can run for over 20 minutes and weighs only 2.8 pounds with the battery attached. The battery packs also have a capacity display for checking charge status for added functionality.

Swift & Scorching

We found the Metabo Cordless Hot Air Gun to be a top quality competitor because it offers maximum performance thanks to high air volume and high temperatures. Not only does it heat up in just 5 seconds, but it can reach up to 930° Farenheit! If you don’t need something that intense, it offers two settings to easily adjust the air temperature level while you’re working — 570° F being the lower option available.

Safe & Practical

Because the Metabo Cordless Hot Air Gun can reach temperatures so high, it’s important to remember to use safe practices when utilizing this heat gun. Thankfully, it features a bright LED light for working in dark areas, and offers excellent working safety thanks to a slim, rubberized handle and safe storage options.
