Never before has one set of tools been so easy to use for so many different types of installations with equally fast, professional results.
All Big Boy rollers in the series have a cantilever heater head which acts as a heat stop ensuring the heat does not travel from the heat gun through the metal tool and transfer to the handle. The handle is also covered in hand-stitched saddle leather for comfort, remaining cool to touch throughout the installation with no glove required.
The heat gun will attach and detach freely, allowing for the heat source to be instantly directed as needed without stopping. The Big Boy Roller has three positions available for the heat gun nozzle. By placing the heat gun nozzle in the center, this allows for general heat over the entire width of the roller on the vinyl surface. The right or left position allows for a more direct aim of heat and heats about 2 1/2 inches from the vinyl’s edge on either the right or left side. This is useful for example as used on a cinder block wall to lay in the grout lines and works right or left handed.
When the heat gun nozzle is placed in the holder, the tool will rotate freely to change roller direction without stopping the flow of the installation. Right to left and up to down, it will just keep rolling.
In step with our other rollers, both rollers in the Big Boy Bundle feature a high density foam roller on a 1" diameter solid aluminum core axle, 4.5” on the Big Boy Installer and a 2” on the Big Boy Utility. The body and heater head are precision CNC milled from aircraft T-6 aluminum and the 2nd generation built-in bushing system provides an ultra-quiet and smooth operation without any wear and tear on the axle or core roller.
