to see it in action. It definitely did the job, but it doesn't have a vacuum off delay built in to the trigger. This is done to help prevent your iron from plugging up (which can be a real bear to get cleaned out again). Other than that, it looks fine.

Here's an unboxing and review of a new unit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_X-XdznveEk
Note that he had to help it along at about the 7:25 minute mark. After that, it seemed to do okay.
He makes a point of showing how it can clean up bread boards. Be careful with that, it's easy to overwhelm your desoldering station and get it plugged up.
I have done a google search for the ZD-985 and I can not find a supplier in Europe. The main reason I need the desoldering station is for my Amiga 2000 to replace the socket of the CPU due to battery corrosion, may it will come alive. Hakko is good but is out of the question because is very expensive.
So I am left with the ZD915 despite its shortcomings, unless any of you have any other suggestions.
