Fitting the accessories on the heat gun
An accessory that falls
off the heat gun while in
use can set an object on
fire. Accessories must
be mounted firmly and
securely on the unit.
Touching a hot
accessory or nozzle can
lead to serious burns.
Before attaching or replacing a nozzle or accessory,
either allow the unit to cool down completely or use a
suitable tool to grasp the accessory.
A hot nozzle can set a surface on fire. Place down hot
nozzles only on fire-proof surfaces.
An incorrect or defective nozzle can lead to heat
accumulation and damage the heat gun. Use only
original nozzles that are suitable for this heat gun.
Using the heat gun on its stand
The rear of the body of the heat
gun, and the rear of the lower
section of its handle, are designed
to be used as a standing base.
When in use the nozzle of the
heat gun points vertically upward.
For stationary type operation it is
suggested to use in this position.
Furthermore, for the cool down
process, it is again suggested to use this position.
When the heat gun is placed down during breaks in the
heating operation, the heat gun should always be placed on
its stand, and NOT laying on its side or nose down.
To operate the heat gun on its stand, select the desired heat
setting and fan setting. Turn the heat gun on its end so it
sits on the rear of the housing.
: Ensure the air intake vents are clear of debris and
the air intake is not restricted.

READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Extreme care should be taken when stripping
paint. The peelings, residue and vapours of paint may
contain lead, which is poisonous. Any pre-1977 paint may
contain lead and paint applied to homes prior to 1995 is
likely to contain lead. Once deposited on surfaces, hand to
mouth contact can result in the ingestion of lead. Exposure
to even low levels of lead can cause irreversible brain
and nervous system damage; young and unborn children
are particularly vulnerable. Before beginning any paint
removal process you should determine whether the paint
you are removing contains lead. This can be done by your
local health department or by a professional who uses a
paint analyser to check the lead content of the paint to
