Default New Aoyue 852, experiances / opinions ?

I am close to make my mind about getting the new Aoyue 852 hot air station.

While the station looks to have quality regarding noise when operating, and also features like auto cool-off.

I do like to read opinions from people who actually own it.

What I am interested to find out is if the air flow looks stable and powerful enough to you? (regarding extraction of capacitors from VGA & MB)

have you got this station yet?

was thinking of getting this one myself,somthing is putting me off though...availabuility of spare parts,the only thing i can find from ebay is the heating element,which is 17xx from germany,and also the earthing situation ive read on other brands of station,something that can be modded though.

im not a great fan of having to mod something to make it safe in test/soldering equipment,i like to be satisfied that the gear is safe and reliable.

I thought the same thing as smason, but I held my tongue so as to not seem I have something personal with Kiriakos.

Anyway, if it matters, I have the atten 852d+ hot air 'station' ... it works fine for my needs.

I bet my socks that your Buy-Now button on eBay is full of rust.
Chinese products and their prices goes up & up daily.

To all :

Price point never bother me as key factor for buying a tool.
Best choice is the one which survives daily work load with out collapsing.
Regarding such hot air tools, they belong to my list of tools for occasional use, and so there is no need to aim for a work horse like Weller.

Personally I am in one dilemma, there is a next corner shop which offer one identical model from another maker (plus tested regarding performance) for 140EUR with a year warranty.
It looks like the ATTEN 850D and comes with out the bubble indicator (air pressure).

And there is also the Aoyue 852 from Germany, at about 105 EUR shipped,
but if something goes wrong I would had to shipped it back to Germany and pay allot more just for that.

A close local friend of my owns this ATTEN looking 850D which comes re branded from Local Greek retailer and so the brand name has no value as information.

Either way the key point in all those is the true performance of the pump in them.
Identical product came with malfunctioning pump which was delivering much less air pressure.

The models with bubble indicator (air pressure) makes easy to see if your pump performs as it should.
In contrast the models with out such pressure indicator it looks like a lotto if they do deliver what they are promising.

And so I am comming back to my original question,
that is did you find the Aoyue 852 as true performer ? ( Even if it does have a air preasure bubble)

first meter the heater element incase it's open-circuit.
they often include spares with the stations - so that makes me suspicious.

I wonder if I should get spare heating elements for both the iron and the hot air... though I have a clone of a clone noname 898D+...

On the other hand, have people had hair driers and paint stripper heat guns break on them?

it probably depends how hot you run it and how many hours a day.

My first cheapo ZD-939B hot air station's heater failed after 4 years. I have bought a new one, and there is a difference in this version, it does not allow you to set the airflow as low as the old one. I've had this one for over 3 years and it hasn't failed yet.

So i think you should only get spares for the iron.
