West Chester, PA – Metabo Corporation, a leading German international manufacturer of professional-grade cordless and corded hand-held power tools and accessories in the US, introduces their Metabo 18V Cordless Dual Temperature Heat Gun, HG 18 LTX 500 (610502850). “We are excited to introduce our new 18V cordless dual temperature heat gun, the HG 18 LTX 500. This lightweight, ergonomic cordless heat gun outperforms the competition and performs just like a corded version but without the limitations and trip hazards of a corded tool. The heat gun can be used for a variety of applications, from heat shrinking, bending, softening, thawing, plastic welding, to soldering of copper pipes or stripping paint and removing decals,” says Terry Tuerk, Metabo’s Senior Product Manager. The temperature setting can be easily changed from 570 to 930 degrees with the switch on the back of the tool, and the LED readout displays the selected temperature range. The HG 18 LTX 500 performs like a corded version, reaching temperature in less than 5 seconds. The heat guns’ airflow/volume is 6-7 CFM. The combination of the temperature and airflow allows the HG 18 LTX 500 the flexibility for use on a wide variety of applications. The heat gun includes a wraparound nozzle (630004000) and a reducing nozzle (630005000). The wraparound nozzle is ideal for heat shrink applications, and the reducing nozzle is perfect for spot heating, e.g., soldering and plastic welding. The HG 18 LTX 500 also includes a LED light for illuminating the work area as well as an attachment point for use with a tool balancer. Using Metabo’s 8.0Ah LiHD battery pack allows for a continuous run time of 20+ minutes. To
