Glue Machinery Champ 3: The Good
The Champ 3 uses bulk hot melt, but doesn't require you to have big cumbersome bulk hot melt tanks, hoses, or hand guns. The hot melt reservoir holds 5 ounces of hot melt. Each trigger pull from the Champ 3 gives you 4.1 Grams of hot melt. Glue Machinery's Champ 3 can apply 7 cubic inches of hot melt without having to refill. The Champ 3 also features a drip free dispensing nozzle.
Changing a nozzle is a piece of cake on the Champ 3 and there are a variety of nozzle options. We like that the Champ 3 dispenses bulk hot melt, but isn't bulky! This bulk hot melt is a slender handgun only weighing 1.8 pounds.
Glue Machinery Champ 3: The Bad
This bulk hot melt handgun only has a melt rate of 1 pound per hour. We like that it uses bulk hot melt, but seriously one pound per hour is a drag. Another, thing that we have discovered when using the Champ 3 is that it takes quite some time for the gun to cool down after use. Not to mention it takes a good ten minutes for it to heat up.
Glue Machinery Champ 3: Overall
We like the Champ 3 by Glue Machinery, but it does have some draw backs. We love that this is a lightweight, versatile glue gun that uses bulk hot melt. Our biggest issue is that the slow warm up time and low output per hour.
