I won't even have to rake up and haul away the weeds now.

VT 2-23 C WEED DRAGON® – 100,000 BTU Deluxe Vapor Torch Kit
The WEED DRAGON is the perfect propane torch kit for home and garden use. We've regulated the flame and BTU down for homeowners who don't need the power of a farm torch and we've even assembled it. This torch kit is still plenty powerful and generates heat up to 2,000° F. This kit IS NOT like wimpy cane torches you may have seen that run on disposable cylinders. The 100,000 BTU Weed Dragon quickly hooks up to any refillable propane tank (barbeque cylinders work great) and even comes with a hand-tighten tank fitting (you don't even need a wrench).

ooops (For outdoor use only - Avoid conifers & flammable residue such as pine needles, evergreen mulch, etc.) I guess I should have waited for a less windy day. :frown:

The best pyromania clinics are in England, but what the hey enjoy before the

Agricultural acetic acid (20%) which it seems to me to be glacial acetic acid is apparently recommended for certain noxious weeds. Also, one can simply lay a tarpaulin or black plastic cover over a certain area to kill the weeds, then remove the roots and replant with desired plants - grasses or even better, native vegetation.

I saw that in a magazine over the winter and considered using it to melt the snow off my sidewalks instead of shoveling.:rofl: Didn't get it though. (my back hasn't forgiven me since.)

20% is nowhere near glacial (100%, nearly anhydrous) acetic acid, and a good thing too!

I've got one like that. Except mine doesn't have that wussy regulator on it like the Red Dragon one shows. Tank pressure at the nozzle. Can't beat it.

Yeah, I was using my faulty memory from high school chemsitry. :rolleyes: I should have checked term before posting.

Nevertheless 20% is pretty darn strong.
