Just like that old Dodge pickup we used to take to the lumber yard, Metabo’s new HE 2000 heat gun features three speeds — though they’re not “on the column.”  This industrial-quality gun can pump out 7.8, 9.5, 94 17.7 cubic-feet-per-minute of hot air at between 120 and 1,100 degrees F.

It’s got a 15 amp motor with a double fan, which Metabo claims extends the life of the heating elements by pulling a steadier flow of air across them.  An air filter keeps debris out of the motor, further extending its lifespan.

Temperature is infinitely adjustable between the above-mentioned specs — without putting down the gun — and non-slip pads keep you from dropping it.  At 2 lbs, it’s not the lightest heat gun out there, but considering the feature set the weight seems justified.

Street pricing starts just under $100.

    I can’t tell by what means the temperature is adjusted — they NEVER show the backside of this gun. They don’t brag about an LCD either, so I assume this isn’t like the Bosch where it actually tells you the target temperature and whether it’s being achieved.

    My $7 cheapie is “infinitely adjustable” by means of a twisty restrictor in the intake path, too. It’s just anyone’s guess what temperature that yields!
