About Kawasaki 840015 Heat Gun
Kawasaki 840015 is an affordable heat gun kit. The heat gun kit includes heat gun, few tips, scraper handle with three scraper heads. Like most of the heat guns, it provides dual heat temperature. It is an affordable heat gun, and it has lower quality. The case of the heat gun is not very good so be careful and do not drop it. The best feature of this heat gun is price, and I need to say it is a low price. This Kawasaki heat gun is a great hand tool for home or garage use, and it can serve you well. If you want to do some severe and longer job, then it will not work so good, and I recommend you to check DeWalt D26960K heat gun kit.

There are different reviews on Amazon for Kawasaki 840015. One of them is excellent with recommendations, and other is that this product has not fulfilled their expectations. They are complaining about the quality of the tool. Also, that tool worked for only a few months. Yes maybe it used to work for two months but this is not a high-quality heat gun, and if you use it hard it will be damaged undoubtedly. I and some customers recommend you to cool it after a few minutes use. Check out some customer reviews

Kawasaki 840015 is a magnificent heat gun for this money. Perfect for repairing different types of accessories and electronics. It will work fine for home use and the price is very affordable. Product came with ten accessories, and you do not need to worry about buying them afterward. I recommend it, and it has an excellent rating on Amazon. If you buy this, cool it after few minutes of using to prevent damages.
