Customer FAQ

Q: Would you consider the Hakko FX888D more for beginners and hobbyists or is it an industrial tool?
A: Though the price of the unit would make you feel that it’s not built to handle industrial application (where the station could be running 24/7); this is not the case for the FX888D. It is well qualified to be used for heavy duty applications, in addition to being a great unit for home use.
Q: Can the FX888D be used for lead free applications requiring higher soldering temperatures?
A: Absolutely, the FX888D is capable of handling lead free applications.
Q: What does it mean when you say the station is ESD Safe?
A: The soldering station is grounded from the soldering tip to ground. This assures that you will not build up a static charge that could damage delicate circuit board components.
Q: How can I tell when I need to replace the soldering tip on my FX888D?
A: If you maintain the soldering tip well, the tips can last a very long time. There’s a few things that cause the tips to fail and require replacements and they are as follows:

Pinhole in the plating due to wear from normal soldering.
Heavy oxides developing that can not be removed with wet sponge or 599 wire cleaning sponge. If oxides develop, it is recommended that you try refurbishing the tip by using a Hakko FT700
If you see that the tip is separating from the inner sleeve of the tip. This typically will happen only after very prolonged use of the tip and many thermal cycles.

I've used cheaper soldering irons for most of my life and this is definitely worth the investment. It heats quickly and does what it is supposed to. All the interactions I had with Kimco customer service were superb.

This station hearts up very quickly and stays at the temperature it is set to. Easy controls, and decent heat dissipation for the handle. You WILL need multiple tips unless you only solder one size and type of joint.

Bought this station because of the Hakko name at an affordable price. Love the features, the fast rise to temp and temp recovery. Gokimco is also very supportive and I love them.
