Makita heats things up

Makita UK has introduced the DHG181ZJ Heat Gun to its LXT 18V range. Designed with air volume and temperature adjustment functionality to reach up to 200L/min and 550°C, the new heat gun is ideal for a wide range of applications.

The DHG181ZJ delivers an air temperature of up to 550°C and air volume of up to 200L/min depending on the setting chosen. The air volume and temperature are both adjustable, so users can easily set the output to suit the job; simply flick a switch to change between the two air volume settings and adjust the air temperature with the dial.

To protect the operator, the DHG181ZJ features an anti-restart function that prevents accidental start up. There is also a quick release, tool-less mechanism to allow for easy nozzle replacement without the need to touch any hot metal in the process. Supplied in a Makpac Connector Case, Glass Protection, Wide Slot, Reflector, and Reduction Nozzles are all included as standard.

To keep professionals working disruption free for longer, the DHG181ZJ offers impressive run times of 30 minutes in low mode and 21 minutes in high mode when using a fully charged 6Ah LXT battery, ensuring maximum user efficiency.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita says: “We are delighted to introduce this new tool to our line-up, which is compatible with a wide range of accessories to suit every application, including a Welding Nozzle, Solder Sleeves Reflector and Scraper Sets. What’s more, professionals can use the same LXT battery to power over 270 products across the LXT range – making switching between tools and tasks effortless.”
