The Hakko is a professional quality iron with build quality a a notch above the XYTRONIC and substantially higher wattage (65W vs 45W). The Hakko will heat joints more quickly and the tip temperature will recover faster between joints.

Not that much expensier than US models, and way cheaper than what I had to pay here in Norway...

The powercord on the 888 series is attached inside the unit, so you need to take it apart. Or, you can just cut the plug, and change that only.
The powercord from Dancap is partnumber B3496, £22.52
The fx951 on the other hand, have an normal powercord similar to atx powersupply's so you can change whatever you like.
