I live in the Pacific Northwest, an area with a mild climate, plenty of rain, and lots of sunshine in the summer. In short, weed nirvana. It takes only a month or two for a vegetable or flower garden to become overrun with weeds. Further, the soil at my house is a very dense clay, so once a weed gets rooted, it is a serious struggle to remove it. Since I am not a real fan of herbicides, time for modern methods.

=== The Good Stuff ===

* It is about the most fun I have ever had weeding a garden. Some weeds (like certain thistles) almost explode when you torch them, which I admit is somewhat gratifying. (Might want to wear eye protection, that hot sap hurts).

* The torching goes pretty quick, and seems about the same level of time and effort as spraying roundup.

* There are two settings, the normal flow, and a "turbo" setting. The normal flow worked for about 90% of the weeds, especially the smaller ones. Giant weeds, and those I knew from experience to be more hardy, took a full blast to fricassee. Did it kill all of them the first time? No, but neither does digging, Roundup, or any other strategy. It does kill about 75% of them the first time, and the rest go down easy with another blast after a few days.

* In this area, if you cultivate and just "turn over" weeds, it is not uncommon for the exposed roots to work their way back into the soil before the sun has a chance to kill them. A quick shot to the roots with the torch puts a quick end to that.

* The connections between the hose and torch seemed a little loose, but did not leak in the first 10 uses. Hopefully that holds up.

=== The Not-So-Good Stuff ===

* The instructions missed an important first step.

Very pleased with the torches performance and handling. It's extremely effective on weeds and is at least 500,000 BTU s. The trigger is great when you need to calm down the torch when using it. If you use a full bottle of propane it is very heavy to move around, I would recommend a 20 pound or do what I did, take the half empty propane bottle off your BBQ and use it. The last torch I had was not this hot it also did not have the trigger boost like this one, both are better to have. It is boisterous as heck "loud", but that makes it more fun to use, More Power. Makes killing weeds almost fun. Also you may want to put your wife to work, have her follow you around with a water hose and wet every thing down after you.

Update
After the first time of use I found out that if you open the gas valve too quickly it stops the gas from coming out any faster then a low flame. To fix this you have to shut off the gas tank valve, bleed off the torch gas, then shut off the torch, and open the gas tank valve very slooooowly.

This torch comes ready to go out of the box. The turn knob allows you to adjust the power level of the idle mode. I would guess the range is 0-400,00 BTU's. The squeeze lever gives you a full range of power from idle mode all the way up to 500,000 BTU's. The power of this torch is impressive. Some of the comments about the noise levels are exaggerated. I have never had more fun killing weeds. What use to be a chore, is now entertainment.

Wow! This thing is awesome! Something about holding what is basically a flamethrower that makes you happy. I cant help but have a grin on my face when I am using this thing.

Everyone asks me, why did you buy it? Well if just telling them you wanted a flamethrower isn't good enough, the package has a list of justifications for this. From melting ice in your driveway to igniting charcoal.

Looking forward to using this thing camping! I wont be as irritated when the state park makes me buy their firewood that is wet.

Torch arrived quickly. Has a long enough hose to keep the tank away from the flame. Flame is very strong and kills plants within seconds, chars them to carbon in a few more. Because of the long hose you have to crack open the valve on the propane tank and slowly pressurize it, otherwise the safety valve in the tank will shut down gas flow to a trickle. Recommend this for what it does.

I am really pleased with the performance of this torch. Very powerful & easy to use. Make sure to use a 20 pound LP tank ! It would be better with a pistol grip : )

Sturdy, tough, easy and safe to use. The power is incredible. I took it out of the package. Hooked it up to my grill propane tank and works as advertised.

A great tool for what ever you want to use it for. Mine was mainly for lighting a burn pile of limbs and timber. Nor regrets here. Buy if you need it. I twill come in handy down the road.
