I've got the little brother of the 852 listed below... It's just the hot air tool portion, not the soldering iron as I already had a nice weller.
The hot air tool works incredibly well, better than a much more expensive weller hotair tool that I've used in the past. Having the heater and fan built into the handle itself means that it heats up and cools down much more quickly and I think will be more reliable in the long term. Time will tell... I bought it last September and it's been running great so far.
The temperature output was bang on as set at the factory (measured via thermocouple on my bench to verify). I was very surprised.
I'd buy another in a second.
