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.
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.
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.
