Shrinkfast 998 Heat Gun

On Sale for a Limited Time Only!

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.

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.

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.

Comments about Shrinkfast 998 Heat Gun:

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.

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

              Comments about Shrinkfast 998 Heat Gun:

              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.
