Butane Gas Weed burners

2 Replies



Can anyone recommend one of these things please. Don't really like using chemicals, although I have done in the past. We have about 80/100 sq metres that we need to keep clear. The ones we've seen on online shops, have tiny 8cm gas canisters, which we'd use up in no time.Thanks in advance

They are alright for keeping weeds from a paved patio or garden path, but I just use boiling water to achieve the same results. Any more than that they are pretty hopeless.

For that sort of area, your best bet is to search for a Sheen X300 paraffin fired weed burner, they have a pressure vessel to hold the fluid that you pressurise via the inbuilt hand pump, it's what I use and they totally nuke the area burned such that (for us anyway) it holds back serious growth for up to 5 months, the gas canister burners would be useless to you to be honest, we've got one and it barely touches serious weeds plus they have a very small heat footprint..
