Been looking for one of these locally but couldn't find one, found a few on eBay but nothing comes as close as this price wise with a bottle of gas!

A much better alternative to nasty chemicals and also handy in the winter for shifting ice/snow.

They also have extra Gas canisters for £2.99 ideal for plumbers or anyone that uses a blow torch.

Perfect for use on patios
Precise, environmentally friendly flame also suitable for igniting charcoal
With piezo electric ignition and valve for adjusting flame strength
Includes 330g butane/propane pressurised canister
Tube length approx. (cm): 91

would it be suitable for large areas or mainly for between pavers?

Can't see why it won't work on wide area's, doesn't look too different to what the council use.
I'll let you know tomorrow when I have nuked my garden!

ok cheers, got a an area of 3x3 meters and cant be bothered to dig it over................again

I've got something very like this (amazon.co.uk/Aut…_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1377549343&sr=8-15&keywords=weed+burner). It's okay for keeping the weeds down on the block paving but I really wouldn't recommend it for wide areas, it really is one weed at a time and even small weeds take a good few seconds to start to break down.

I'm happy enough as I wanted an alternative to using weed killer but it isn't cheap and I can see me not bothering to buy any more gas once the canisters I got with it are used up.

In summary more a gimmick than a really useful tool but if you have mobility problems and a drive or patio to keep weed free then it's ideal.

Tell me about it, we even put matting down and it just burst through the lot! Tried everything so going to nuke them now.

I got this from Lidl the last time they were selling it. I wouldn't recommend it. Little bit of weed takes ages to burn. Waste of money.

You can use the wallpaper plate on a steam remover and it'll kill weeds as also will a good electric heat gun (although bending down with them is a real b*gger!)

I normally use a pipe to burn my weed

I saw the title and thought might have to get one of those as the seal on the Turkish pipe I have is starting to fail. Then I realised it was for something completely different.

This is a really hard way to get rid of weeds... takes forever. I tried it today...

Why not use a drip of petrol and a bit of fire?

they'll just grow again - spraying will give a longer term solution

You can pour boiling water on straight from the kettle... Kills most weeds first time

I bought one of these last year. Waste of money. The gas lasts no time at all.

so its like a pipe or something?

Can of petrol,much better idea.Pour it between pavers and woosh oO

These are OK'ish.... but they don't kill weeds or stray grass completely just burn the tops... they will eventually come back


Save your money and buy a tub of weed killer these are useless.. Just make a lot of smelly burning vegetation.

Great price, but as stated above they do tend to come back. Hot water & Bleach trick works for me

Got one. Ok for spot weeding, but use chemicals for larger areas.
