2976867.jpg2976867.jpgThis tool is a new idea to me but having bought and used the gas type for a similar price and discovered how quickly they get through the expensive gas cannisters I think this one would be well worth a try. Appears to be a very powerful heat gun (think paint removal) on a stick.

5 different nozzles included.

My worry is any wildlife like frogs or newts hiding amongst the weeds. …My worry is any wildlife like frogs or newts hiding amongst the weeds. These weed burners could cause a lot of suffering.


I think these are meant for the odd weed growing out of the cracks between the pavement or in a flower bed.

If you you have a frog hiding on your paved areas you probably have a problem tha this won’t fix.

Just received the hozelock version, haven't opened it yet
These things are terrible at burning weeds. Takes ages to burn each one. Gas ones are much better.

Very true. The gas ones work, and the electric ones don't - it's that simple.

It sounds like you are making the same mistake as I did at first. You are not supposed to reduce each weed to ash before you move on - whether using a gas or electric one, the idea is that you just damage the plant cells enough so the plant withers and dies over the next few days just as if you sprayed it with weedkiller. Takes a bit of trial and error to learn just how long you need to spend, but it takes far less time and cost when you get it right.

Can you get the same result from a decent heat gun?
Any reason this is in Grocery deals?

No idea - I didn't put it there - maybe because it's Lidl?

Maybe, but you'll be down on your hands and knees. This is 2000W - not sure whether you can get heat guns with such power?
Have to be careful with these considering the dry weather we’re having. Might end up setting the shed on fire. Or the grass. Or the house.
Isn't weedkiller cheaper ?
