For the organic gardener, or just those who do not wish to use weed killing chemicals, this is the tool to use.
Light with the instant Piezo ignition and sweep slowly along about 5cm (2´) above the weeds. The plant only needs to be heated, not burned. The heating causes the cells walls to burst, and the plant dies. (To check this is achieved, pressing a leaf between fingertips should leave a dark green finger print). Leaves should fall after 2-3 days. Some hardier weeds will need repeated treatments through the growing season.
Using the 0.34kg refillable hand- held propane bottle (as pictured) will give about 1 hour of continuous burn.
A 3m extension hose is available for use with larger, heavier gas bottles, to give flexibility of use.
