How Do I Properly Start My Torch Kit?
Starting with everything off and closed (Propane tank and needle valve) slowly crack the knob of your propane tank about ¼ to ½ of a turn. This will provide plenty of propane flow, depending on the level of propane in your tank, to provide a large usable flame. Next, you need to wait about 5-10 seconds for the propane to fill the hose. You will then slowly crack your adjusting needle valve about ½ a turn, and then proceed to light the torch. Following this procedure (also listed in your torch kit's instruction booklet) will prevent the safety valve from engaging and prohibiting your use. If you find that you have turned your kit on too quickly, shut everything off and give the P.O.L. safety feature time to reset (about 1 minute). Hint: Neither the tank valve nor the needle valve on the torch needs to be opened all the way to get a usable flame.

Inside the directions was a yellow flyer - IMPORTANT NOTE. The gist of it is if you turn the valve on too fast an "Excess Flow P.O.L." device is triggered that limits flow.
The next time I lit the torch and squeezed the trigger it was like a jet pack - huge rush of flame shot out 10-12 inches. WOW - this thing really does work!
The main reason I bought it is for my gravel driveway. Spraying "RoundUp" chemicals only works 3 months out of the year, when it is above 90-degrees, not windy, and not going to rain for 24 hours. This torch has none of those limitations. Plus the $100 a year I spent on spray is now no longer spent. It cost me $12.81 to fill the tank. I did my driveway in less than an hour and still have half a tank left.
I highly recommend this thing - if you are having trouble with yours be sure you are not a victim of the protective device. Also the funny reviews here about zombie killing and flying off the ground will make perfect sense after you get one of these. It's very impressive!
Oh my gosh! This tool is so much fun to use. We easily figured out how to use it (you just turn on the tank valve then turn on the wand valve and light it up with a stick lighter) and instantly set a roll of field fencing ablaze. The dead weeds and vines disappeared in a glorious blaze and we were able to complete our project with no weed interference.
Later, I decided to clean up some more weeds and fence line with the Red Dragon 400,000 BTU garden flame thrower. I burned up some large weeds that were trying to go to seed in my vegetable garden. Having hit the seedpods with 400,000 BTUs of flame, I have no doubt they will not be producing more weeds in my vegetables. I also decided to clean up about 100 or more feet of fence line. We have a very invasive Asian grass that attempts to take over the property every year. This stuff is a nightmare and will choke out any and all native plants I have ever seen. It took about 10 minutes to burn out the Asian grass along the fence line. I love my Red Dragon.
The one complaint I have about the Red Dragon 400,000 BTU garden flamethrower is its lack of effect on fire ant mounds. No matter how much sand is in the fire ant mound, you cannot encase the mound in glass with a blast from the red dragon wand. It was a bitter disappointment.
I am a 51-year-old woman. I am somewhat small. However, I was able to wear the Red Dragon on my back for a couple of hours and use it with no real problem. It was heavy. I did feel the weight of the unit and did have a bit of bruising on my shoulders the next day. However, it was totally worth it. I think wearing a more substantial shirt would have helped.
I really love this tool. I only wish I had tried it sooner. It is great for cleaning out the cracks in stone walkways and patios. It is perfect for fence lines. (However, be sure the grass on the other side of the fence isn't still half dead on a windy day before you use this. Don't ask.)
I paid full price for the red Dragon 400,000 BTU garden flame thrower. It was worth every penny.
