Mobile heat everywhere with the new cordless heat gun from Metabo

  • Ready to use in a matter of seconds
  • Operating temperature from 300 to 500 degree Celsius
  • Powerful air flow for diverse applications


Nürtingen, April 2020: You could think that it is all just hot air. However, Metabo product manager Johannes Steeb knows: "The production of hot air requires an enormous amount of energy". The new mobile hot air gun HG 18 LTX 500 from Metabo provides this energy far away from a power outlet from a powerful 18 Volt battery pack. The compact tool generates an operating temperature of up to 500 degrees Cels
ius. "It is one thing that the machine heats. It is important that the temperature is output in a fast manner", says Steeb. The hot air gun does this in less than five seconds.


Heat button

With a powerful air flow of up to 200 litres per minute, the HG 18 LTX 500 is suited for example for shrinking cables, welding and remoulding plastic, as well as foiling or the removal of paint and adhesive residue. In short: The HG 18 LTX 500 is at hand when you quickly require mobile hot air. The operation with only one push button is easy and intuitive. At at a weight of 1.6 kilogram including Metabo LiHD battery pack, the HG 18 LTX can be taken anywhere. Even hard-to-reach spots far away from power outlets are no problem, for example when foiling at window fronts or cable shrinking on
 wind turbines.


Two settings, many nozzles

The mobile hot air gun offers two temperature settings: 300 and 500 degree Celsius. For optimal power output, we recommend a Metabo 18 Volt battery pack with a capacity of 8.0 Ampere hours (Ah). This expands the cross-manufacturer battery pack system Cordless Alliance System (CAS) by another product. Within CAS,more than 160 machines and devices from 17 manufacturers are compatible with each other and can be combined at will. No matter if wide jet nozzle for drying and paint removal, wrap around nozzle for crimping or welding nozzle for welding of plastics: The HG 18 LTX 500 is compatible with all available Metabo accessory nozzles. If you then need a break after crimping or paint removal, you are on the safe side, says product manager Steeb with a twinkle in his eye: "The hot air gun lights the barbecue in a jiffy."
