For many weeks now, I have had the honor to use and test the latest Carl Stuckey 2.0 Cordless Glue Gun. Now I don’t know if he calls it that himself but since it’s the second generation I owned, why not?
Now I can tell you right off the batt, the battery is sensational. I had it on for 5 -6 days everyday day and I got consistently 5-6 hours of use depending on the temperature dial I set it too. I’ll get to that soon. Unfortunately, I am so bummed, my truck was broken into recently and of course they took Carl’s gun. So now I’m left to show you on what footage i had so far.
So here are the features.
I’ll start by saying it’s very light and feels well balanced. Feels comfortable in the hand. There were foam grip strips on the bottom of my glue gun which I found very useful to set on top of a vehicle and prevent slipping or scratching the surface. (That though is purchased separately)
There’s a nice well lit battery indicator letting you know about your battery usage. For me, I got about 1 hour and 15 minutes per LED light. That of course again depends how much you cranked up the heat dial. Speaking of this, I found the dial to be perfect at around 3/4 way around. Not too hot. It’s nice too know if you don’t want such a nasty pull on things, you can turn it down to a cooler temp and you pulls won’t snap so hard.
Occasionally the glue gun drips after gun is running but again that depends on the temperature dial you have it on.
It takes about a 5 minutes to start waring up and a good 10 minutes to reach it’s optimum setting . The trigger is smooth along with the feed of the glue sticks. No problems at all. I think it would be nice to see perhaps some temp indicator numbers around the dial. That would be cool.
My conclusion it’s a great cordless glue gun. With added battery just in case you don’t want any downtime at all, I think any pdr route tech and even hail techs will be well pleased how this performs and reliable it is.
