If you’re a pyro at heart, Flame Engineering’s Weed Dragon should get you fired up. Fed by a standard 20-pound propane cylinder, the Weed Dragon blasts out a roaring 100,000 BTUs — with that kind of heat you can kill weeds, melt ice, thaw pipes, sterilize animal pens, or remove paint.
You can drag the propane tank behind you, carry it in a backpack, or lighten the load with the help of a hand cart. Flame Engineering offers twelve different models or kits that include the previously mentioned carrying accessories and different heads and trigger assemblies.
The Weed Dragon starts at about $50 — seeing how much I spent on chemicals for my fence line last year, this might be a better option.
