The Shrinkfast 998 Heat Gun is lightweight at just 2 pounds 2 ounces. It's ergonomic design permits extended use without discomfort, as it is perfectly balanced and features a cool combustor for operator comfort.
This extremely durable heat gun provides adjustable power ranging from 134,000 BTU/HR @ 15 PSI to 212,000 BTU/HR @ 30 PSI. Great for shrink wrap jobs and other tasks that call for a powerful heat tool.
Shrinkfast has improved upon the 975 in several ways beyond making it lighter and more comfortable to use. The 998 features wide even heat pattern up to 18" in a single pass, and depressing a single button lets you adjust combustor orientation. The quick disconnect combustor makes it easy to attach an extension for easier wrapping of hard to reach areas.

Perfect shrinkwrap gun. Can be used used commercially as well. I've owned two of these guns through my 20 years as a marine technician. Have used other guns and shrinkfast definitely the best.

I don't have anything else to compare this gun to but it does work well and has plenty of power. No complaints. For some reason, the adjustment knob has a locknut on it. Seems unnecessary but it works.

Gun works well however it does allow the propane to leak out slowly when it is shut off. You can watch the pressure slowly bleed off. Also the pressure adjustment knob won't move unless you back off on the brass nut that locks it in place. Seems unusual since I have torches and other high pressure gauges that don't need lock nuts.

I used it the first time. It is vary straightforward, even under rain - no problem; well balanced.

Great product when you get it to fire. I bought this one because I use the same one at work. Used to be able to take it home and use it. All I had to do was buy my own film ( which I used to buy through work also ) and propane. To shrink my pontoon boat, patio furniture, lawn tractor and my fire wood for the next years burn, ( beats any tarp you can buy! ) New management stopped that . So I bought my own. Same model, just don't work the same. The igniter is junk ! Some times it has taking as many as 20 or 30 strikes to get it to light. Hoping it gets better the more it's used. But it is not looking good on that hope. Not sure if I would recommend this to anyone.

Great tool easy to use. Ignitor works best if you pull the trigger slowly. Makes wrapping your boat a snap.

It is a good thing that I have used one of these before because the instructions that came with the gun are a joke! Shrink fast people take the time to make a better instruction book.Take some colored pictures and explain in detail how to set the gun up with an LP tank. I had some issues about the regulator and how it works that where not explained in the booklet and if I had not used one before( a friends gun) I would of been cueless. Everything else is top notch with this product.
