Ryobi Heat Gun R18HG

The R18HG-0 Cordless Heat gun is capable of heating to 470 degrees centigrade in under 10 seconds making it the ideal tool for a variety of DIY tasks including paint removal (small areas), copper bending or tube shrinking. The built-in LED work light can illuminate any work area to enable the user to operate the tool in low lit conditions.

The Heat gun also comes with a concentrator nozzle for direct heating, ideal for paint removal and a reflector nozzle for redirecting the heat, ideal for applications such as wire shrinking or bending pipes.

As part of the Ryobi ONE+ cordless platform it shares battery compatibility with over 125 tools for the home and garden
