About Hakko FX-951
If you often use a soldering station and often do soldering, then you should consider buying a professional soldering station.
When I say professional, what does that mean?
It means that you will buy a soldering station with high performance like high wattage, long life, ESD safe, temperature stable, etc. I can get professional soldering stations over 3000$ dollars on the market, but they are for some special soldering and professionals, you should aim to get a station that costs up to 500$.
I think Hakko FX-951 is professional enough, it is not expensive as some other soldering stations; it cost under 300$. It owns remarkable thermal recovery and heat transfer.
Hakko FX-951 Specifications
This station has 65W power and a standard voltage input of 120V. The temperature range is 400-840ºF (200-450ºC) with stability of 9ºF (5ºC). It heats up to 500ºF for 15 seconds. It is usually used for SMT soldering, and it is one of the most attractive on the market for SMT soldering.
FX-951 uses more valuable tips than usual stations and tips can precisely control a temperature. Tips provide excellent stability, and soldering is much easier. You can use T12 or T15 tips. Both of them will fit.
Tips do not overheat components and do not make black spots when you solder. The station goes on auto shutoff after 30 minutes of not using. Also, one of the particular features is a lockout key card that can prevent unauthorized or accidental temperature settings.
Hakko makes these soldering stations easy to clean tip because they came with a 599B tip cleaner on an FH200-01 soldering iron holder. Item weight is 2.6 pounds. Iron cord length is 47”.
Customers are delighted with this station, and they only say good things about it. It is one of the best-rated soldering stations on the market and also one of the best seller professional soldering stations. You will not have problems like on the cheaper stations that you need to change tips every month or worry about temperature stability. Tips on FX–951 can solder for about seven months without any problems. Other reviews tell that cleaning is straightforward, and the iron stand is stable and strong.
