In fact, the 23-inch handle length and 10-foot gas hose make it a snap to reach every corner of your yard or garden so you can aim precisely and get optimum coverage exactly where you need it. CSA International Certified and easy to operate, the Weed Dragon connects to a standard propane cylinder and has a two-inch bell.

From the Manufacturer

The WEED DRAGON is the perfect propane torch kit for home and garden use. We've regulated the flame and BTU down for homeowners who don-Foott need the power of a farm torch and we-Footve even assembled it. This torch kit is still plenty powerful for lots of tough jobs all year long and generates heat up to 2,000-degree F. The 100,000 BTU Weed Dragon quickly hooks up to any refillable propane tank (barbeque cylinders work great) and even comes with a hand-tighten tank fitting (you don-Foott even need a wrench). Overall length from torch bell to back of handle is 27 1/2-inch. Used properly, the Weed Dragon is safe and easy to operate and is a great tool to reduce or eliminate herbicide use where children and pets could be exposed. Kit includes: 100,000 BTU Torch withplastic grip, 10-foot U.L. Listed LP Gas Hose, Hand Tighten Excess Flow P.O.L. Fitting, U.L. Listed Regulator, Adjustable Needle Valve, Pilot Spark Lighter, and Pipe Thread Compound. The Weed Dragon is not just for weeding - hundreds of other uses year round: FLAME weeds in your yard, garden, concrete cracks, rock gardens, driveways and along fence lines. Perfect along chainlink fences. Flaming reduces or eliminates spraying chemicals and is a lot more fun than pulling weeds. BURN heavy weeds and brush, stumps, debris and more. Perfect to burn off irrigation ditches, fields, culverts, pond edges etc. Start charcoal, campfires, burn barrels and back fires. THAW frozen water pipes. MELT snow and ice off steps, sidewalks, driveways and any nonflammable surfaces. HEAT metal castings, pipe and tubing, branding irons, pots, kettles, tar, asphalt and roofing materials. STERILIZE bird and animal cages, pens and other nonflammable confinement areas. REMOVE paint, grease, oil, plastic and other residues from metal, concrete and other nonflammable objects.

This is a affordable weed burner, not as nice as an infrared burner, but at less than half the cost, it is a great deal. It is not necessary to burn the weed, just heat it till the color of the leaves change, wait a few days and the weed will be dead. It works better if the ground is wet and the weed is turgid (full of water). Plus it is fun to watch them die and a lot healthier that spaying chemicals everywhere.

The tool works as advertised and is easy to use. However, for weed removal it is not entirely effective for existing weeds. To be fair, the documentation indicates that new weeds are manageable but for established weeds it may take several attempts. I found that I had to employ alternative methods to remove established weeds. It is, without doubt, best suited for removing new weeds from walkways, gravel paths, etc. As for fence lines it depends on what the surrounding environment is like and, as suggested in the guide, keep a fire extinguisher and water hose handy.

This torch works great. I took a chance and ordered it hoping it wasn't imported and I was pleased to see both the torch and it's included flint igniter are made right here in America.

I was able to kill the weeds along 200' of sidewalk and stone wall in less than 1/2 hour. Results are as good as chemical herbicides, and you don't have the cramping hand ache from trying to spend that much time with a spray bottle. Works best if you flame weeds right after a rain, they are full of water and easier to kill and you start fewer fires around leaves or other debris.

Wilting weeds and stomping on the few small fires that start are much more fun than you might expect.

Of course it's an open flame, so engage your brain before waving it around. Properly adjusted the flame is hard to see in daylight, and heat can damage nearby plants that don't seem close enough to be harmed. A metal snow shovel is useful if you want to flame weeds around cultivated shrubs or plants. You can use the metal shovel to reliably shield desirable plants from the heat. Be aware that any paint on your shovel might not be there when you're done (and I wouldn't try it with a plastic shovel).

I'm pleased with this tool, and I'm sure it will do a good job getting the charcoal started in the barbeque and melting winter ice too.

How about it Amazon, can you try to include location of manufacture in more item descriptions? Many times I pass over a purchase because I don't want to end up with something made overseas and can't tell from the description.

I purchased this to help control weeds in my garden without using chemicals. Works great. You do have to use care since it is an open flame but if you follow the instructions and put a call into their customer service line for tips you'll have great success. You do have to flame several times over the season but way easier and quicker than pulling weeds. I've had my torch for almost a year and have used it for many other things. It worked great for ice removal off of my steps and my husband uses it for heating up the block on his tractor and starting pit fires. I can't wait until next Spring so I can start killing those unwanted weeds.

I purchased another torch through Amazon. My original one lasted almost 20 years. I searched the local hardware stores, but they only had Chinese knockoffs. I use the torch to clean up weeds around patio stones, gardens, and along my rural driveway. The torch also works great for starting my Weber charcoal BBQ. You can avoid using the charcoal lighter fluid, PLUS it starts the coals quickly and cleanly.

The torch uses your own refillable 20 lb propane tank to save you money and waste. If you should need replacement O rings in the future, you can get them at your local propane or hardware store.

Support quality American made products. The job you save may be your own.

I love the Weed Dragon. My sister gave it to me and told me that she was going to win "Sister of the Year". No doubt. It is the best/most fun way to kill weeds in gravel, pavement, or between paving stones and to clear a weed-filled yard (see warning below). Give a man a weed dragon and never see a weed again!

As has been mentioned in other reviews - you do not need to incinerate weeds: just wilt the leaves (or blades if they are grass-like weeds) and the next day they are dead. I have found that I don't need a large flame to be effective (although it is very satisfying to wield back-yard flame thrower it wastes gas and is more hazardous) - the hottest part is not in the flame anyway! I adjust the flame so when I hold the weed dragon comfortably above the ground it takes one or two seconds to wilt the leaves. Then a gentle sweep of the flame makes short work of weeds. (note: it is the heat which kills - not the flame - so you don't have to keep the flame directly on each weed if you're clearing a patch)

Regarding the complaint about established weeds - I found it quite effective at killing weeds up to six or eight inches tall (but occasionally I hit them again another day if they have woody stalks). However, please do not use fire to clear tall or dense weeds (or around wood structures) - if you don't know why, don't buy this product! Also, you won't want to use a Weed Dragon on flower beds or the lawn.

My only complaint is "It works too well, so I do not get to use it as often as I'd like." I used to take it to my friend's houses but then they saw how much fun it was and now they all have their own Weed Dragons.
