before doing anything
after pulling large stuff by hand (didn't take long)
torching with the red dragon
the final results
My garden beds are make with 2 x 12 planks; don't try this with anything smaller or plastic. I will find out in several months if this was successful after I plant some winter squash.
I read several reviews (good and bad) before deciding to purchase this, and now that I've used it quite a bit, I felt I should point out some things.
If you are using this for weeds that are still young, then this weed burner will melt them away with no problem, including their fragile undeveloped roots. However, if you are trying to use this on older more developed weeds, then you will have to come back a few days later and do it again, not because there is anything wrong with the weed burner, but because of how weeds work.
Basically, you have to think like a weed, and what does a weed want to do? It wants to live long enough to reproduce and make much more of itself, for no other reason than to drive you crazy. So if you damage the weed by torching it, and the root is well developed, then the weed is going to go into critical mode, and the root will force up new weed greens and rush it to go to seed so it can reproduce. So it might seem like the weed burner didn't do its job, but it did, it's just that the root is in the ground, and it can't get hot enough to kill the root completely. So you will have to come back and re-torch the weed. Though if the weed is that big, you might as well just use some elbow grease and pull it out.
This is a great tool if used right, just like a weed trimmer won't be able to get your newly growing young weeds, this weed burner will not be able to kill the tall well developed weeds. But if you use this timely, then you can prevent your weeds from ever needing the weed trimmer, or to be pulled out of the ground.
I think what I like best about this weed burner, is that as I go over my weedlings, the flame also destroys any seeds in the ground and prevents them from germinating, which will prevent weed problems in the long run. As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
I chose not to buy the dolly that is shown in the picture, because the weeds I was concerned about were on a hill, and it was easier to just pick up the propane tank and center it where I want to use it. The 10 foot gas hose is plenty long to keep you busy in between moving the tank. If you're on a flat surface, and your weeds are far away from each other, then that might be useful for you.
As far as how much propane it actually uses, I don't know for sure, but I've used this for at least ten hours now, and the tank is still not empty.
Lastly, I do want to point out that it would be extremely easy to start a fire with this weed burner. You need to read the user guide on how to use it right, and also follow the instructions of having a fire extinguisher handy, or at least a garden hose ready to go. It doesn't take much but a small gust of wind to pick up a burning twig and start a fire. I certainly won't be using this in the middle of summer. I try to only use it if I know it's going to rain in the next few days, and again, I have my safety tools handy.
Well whomever it was, someone ought to give that closet firebug a pat on the back because this thing is awesome! Weeding just got a lot more fun.
The benefits include:
It is fast, I did my whole backyard in a half an hour.
You can be almost surgical in your weed selection or you can flame the entire ground.
There are no chemicals
You can use it to start bonfire and fire pits.
It can be used in the winter to melt ice.
I believe it can be used to heat pipes for soldering or thawing them out.
Did I mention it was fun.
Okay, there are some warnings I should mention with this thing:
You can't see the flame very well so be careful using it around pets and kids. Best to put the dog and kids in the house before you start flaming the weeds.
Most green plant just steam and don't catch fire but Tall grass (even green grass) burns very well and can take off on you if you are not carful so make sure you have a hose ready when you use this thing. I actually used it to clear a patch of dead grass but I wet down the area's around the patch before I flamed it. And I kept sprinkling the flames with water to keep them manageable. It did a beautiful job clearing the area.
Obviously using it during a drought would be a BAD idea.
I had a wood pile that had weeds around it but I DID NOT use it there because I know the wood is very dry and I didn't want to take the risk - even with the hose on the ready. So I guess I'm saying use your head when using this thing.
So go on, get in touch with your inner pyromaniac and torch those pesky weeds -- you know you want to.
