I think you should be ok if you are using leaded solder as it has a lower melting point (450F), but if you are using a lead free solder then you are going to have to definitely use a hotter station. I personally use lead free and work at about 650F. I am seriously thinking of switching over to leaded solder though as lead free can be a HUGE PAIN IN THE *CENSORED*! Especially during desoldering and rework.
