Weeds beware!!! Weed terminator is here. Works excellently, just stay away from grass you want, asphalt driveways, and wood (burnable) structures. Seven of my neighbours ran to Lowes, Amazon online, etc and bought one. We now have pyro-weed team on our block.

If you are carefull you can even singe the tops of dandelions that are over 4 inches tall before the seeds take flight. Just wave it at the seed head like Harry Potter would but careful for the grass. :))))

The torch works well although the self igniting button is sometimes hit and miss. The torch also needs to be relit frequently when the propane bottle is about 1/3 full or less.

I like it May 14 2007
By M. Housman - Published on Amazon.com
Overall this product has met my expectations. It is well constructed and ergonomically sound. It works quite well at destroying small emerging weeds on bare ground, gravel and in between bricks. For larger weeds I find pulling is still a better option than the torch. The product is less effective when used in or around flammable ground cover or tender vegetation because of the resulting collateral damage.

If you are comparing the torch against the ease and effectiveness of chemical weeding products (Ortho Weed be Gone, etc.) you will be disappointed in this product's relative performance. If you are comparing this product to other "organic" weeding methods (pulling, high concentration vinegar, etc) you will be satisfied with the relative performance.

Well Designed Weeder May 12 2007
By Elizabeth Hardisty - Published on Amazon.com
This flame weeder is well designed. It's light & maneuverable, ignites with one click of the button, and a small canister of propane keeps it going for 'hours'. The flame covers a path about 3" wide, so it goes slowly over large areas, and since one's neck gets stiff after awhile, several minutes at a time is long enough. Safety and applicability issues: flame is extremely hot, can singe shoes or start a groundlevel brush fire~~and applicability: works best on small (1" high), newly emerged weeds (wilts/kills with a brief pass of the flame). Established grass clumps laugh at it, though, and re-sprout within days, even if 'cooked' and blackened. Same with deeper rooted plants (dandelions). For weed control on compacted gravel, in cement cracks, etc., it is a godsend. In Spring, needs to be repeated every few days as new weeds emerge, because it won't be so effective once they've developed deeper roots.

Finally, a Flame Thrower for the Masses! Oct. 11 2005
By Joseph G. Hagloch - Published on Amazon.com
Little did I know how much a middle aged guy needs his own flame thrower, but this Bernzomatic JT850 Trigger Start Outdoor Torch fills the bill. Be certain to get the trigger start version to avoid fiddling with matches when there are rampant weeds attacking your patio, driveway, or sidewalk.

The tool makes a satisfying roar when you are roasting weeds AND there is no bending over as with an Oriental, odd-shaped hoe-like instrument scraping out the little devils. I haven't tried it on ice yet, but I'm sure it will do a good job. Beware of using it on asphalt or mulch because your next call may be to the fire department.

I have already purchased one for my brother-in-law--a difficult person to buy for--and won't he be surprised when he opens it on Christmas morning.

My wife says we can use it for browning creme brulee...we'll see.

Bernzomatic JT850 Self-Igniting Outdoor Torch Review July 26 2008
By POPPOP - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Iused to use a "jury rigged" inverted propane cylinder and attached nozzle afixed to a metal rod for the purpose of burning small unsightly weed seedlings, which would regularly pop-up between my driveway pavers and patio blocks. The problew with my "jury-rigged" set-up was that the inverted propane cylinder eventually allows liquid propane to seep into the torch nozzle and either created dangerous flare-ups or just caused the flame to extinguish. Also, the stock propane nozzles used for brazing/soldering would constantly "flame-out" due to the flame coming in close proximity to the pavers and would therefore cause the flame to blow-out/extinguish itself. The Bernzomatic JT850 Self-Igniting Outdoor Torch is engineered to maintain an upright cylinder position, eliminating all the inherent problems found with my "jury rigged" set-up mentioned above. Now, this tool is the right tool for the right job! Once you screw on the propane cylinder the tool is perfecly balanced and easy to handle. Open the valve, click the quartz ignition switch and you have a "jet-like afterburner flame" which will not flame-out and along with a accompanying satisfying roar, makes quick work of any weeds which dare to have poped-up between the bricks. Once you get the weeds eliminated and under control, maintenance is easy and actually fun? My entire circular driveway is now pristeen and weed-free and when new weeds appear, they are quickly eliminated, with just a momentary application of the searing flame. I belive, in additon to killing the visible part of the weed, the seed is also damaged by the heat as well, so new weeds appear less and less often. If you have pavers, or sidewalks, or even a cracked weed-prone concrete or asphalt driveway then I would definitely reccomend this tool. It is a quality piece, safe to operate (usual open flame cautions apply) and I actually look forward to the weed extermination exercise! I had considered a "knock-off" cheaper model, but luckily I stumbled upon a few owner reviews on those models, which complained of "flare-ups" and other inherent problems with the cheaper tool and decided to go for the more expensive "Bernzomatic JT850 Self-Igniting Outdoor Torch" and I am glad I did! Buy this product with confidence and look no further! If small weed elimination/maintenance is your goal, then this is definitely the tool you want to have in your arsenal! You'll be "weed free" in no time and you might even "enjoy the hunt" when they dare to return? Enjoy!
