This is our second DeWALT model to make the list, and it is pretty much a paired down, more simple version of the one we saw above. So for example, the model above had variable temperature controlled via a built in LCD screen. This model also has variable temperature, however the thermostat style twist dial mounted on the rear of the device controls it. You can still adjust the temperature therefore just without the same accuracy.
The accompanying accessory pack is also a little smaller, comprising just two nozzles. You do get a very useful metal hanging hook with this model though. That gives more storage options, and also makes it easy to hang the tool up to cool down after use. The temperature range on this tool is also very impressive, as it goes from as low as 120 all the way up to 1100 Fahrenheit. That is a great temperature range that will be enough for a wide range of tasks.
Another benefit of this being a more basic model is that your credit card will be much happier. The tool will set you back around 70 bucks, making it considerably cheaper than the other DeWALT we looked at. It’s up to you to judge however if too many premium features have been cast aside in order to reach that lower price point.
