Ergonomic Design

Tough on weeds, not your back.

We’ve designed the Pyroweeder to be high­ly adjustable in order to meet both your needs and those of your farm. Features such as an off­set and reversible han­dle, adjustable han­dle height, burn­er angle, wheel width (31″-38″), as well as a chas­sis mount­ed propane tank make the Pyroweeder excep­tion­al­ly ergonom­ic and user friend­ly. (Propane tank not included.)

Build Quality

Built to last.

The Pyroweeder’s light­weight, non-rust­ing alu­minum and stain­less-steel frame (includ­ing all stain­less-steel hard­ware) allows nim­ble maneu­ver­abil­i­ty in the field, while remain­ing high­ly durable to with­stand the rig­ors of farm life for years to come.

    Enhance Flame Effectiveness

    Flame Blade Accessory

    Take your Pyroweeder to the next lev­el by pur­chas­ing this add on. Our flame blade acces­so­ry shel­ters and directs the heat right to the soil, spread­ing the heat more even­ly. The blade pro­tects the flame from wind, main­tain­ing a robust burn. This sim­pli­fies start­up and pro­tects against flame­out. Your weeds will hate it!

    48″ of firepower awesomeness

    8‑burner Pyroweeder

    Burns a wider path than our stan­dard 5‑burner mod­el, the 8‑burner Pyroweeder comes with extend­ed axles for wheel widths of 42″-54″, as well as a wider han­dle for eas­i­er use on larg­er beds.

    Longer Burn Time

    Two tanks, twice the time.

    Our two-tank upgrade allows for extend­ed burn time to help you cov­er a larg­er area with­out stop­ping to swap tanks. You might con­sid­er get­ting just the braces so that you can car­ry an addi­tion­al tank with you in the field to switch to when your first tank is emp­ty. Include the plumb­ing if you want to draw propane off of both tanks simultaneously.

    Great Product but a few oversights

    3 out of 5 stars

    Nathan H.12 days agoVerified buyer

    This tool works great compared to a handheld single torch weeder, and the flame blade does an excellent job at directing the heat exactly where it needs to go without harming the crops. I can get it VERY close to the plants without flaming them. The only thing I want to mention is that the plastic wheels are a major oversight for a flame weeder. By day 2 of using this thing the wind caught it just right and before I knew it one of the wheels was melting off. Now I can't use it until I replace the wheel with something that won't melt.

    Pyroweeder - Great Quality Easy to Use

    5 out of 5 stars

    Robert A.4 months agoVerified buyer

    My pyroweeder arrived quickly, was well packaged, and was not missing any parts; these days that alone is impressive. The parts that arrived were high quality and fit together perfectly.

    I had been searching high and low on how to prepare my 1 acre property for planting new grass without using chemicals before I discovered the Pyroweeder. I used the Pyroweeder to kill the weeds twice over a week period, then I tilled the ground, dragged a crate behind my riding mower to level and smooth it, seeded the yard, then used a 250lb roller and tow behind rakes to bed the seeds in the dirt.

    I was going to sell the weeder once I got the lawn started but I realized I could burn my Bermuda each year to kill the weeds without harming the grass so I will keep it instead.

    Two things would make it perfect:

    1 - The metal holder for the propane tank cuts into the paint of the propane tank especially when a 30lb tank is mounted. I would recommend rubber covers over the holder so that it would not be metal on metal.

    2 - It would be trivial to offer a two kit for the Pyroweeder so that I can tow it behind my riding mower, it even already has the screw holes for it. I will probably make one myself for future use but a simple kit that lets you remove the hand and hook it to a riding mower would be great.

    We love it but after we use it for 5 minutes the wheels start to melt. It gets so hot that because the wheels are plastic and are in close proximity to the torches, it melts the wheels. If you guys could replace the wheels with metal inflation free tires then it would be fine. Otherwise, I'll have to keep stopping after five minutes to adjust the plastic wheels back into their original shape and let them cool down. It just doesn't seem like that is going to work for us and now I will have to buy my own metal wheels to make this flame weeder work.

    The ordering and delivery was a breeze. Even putting it together was an easy process with good directions. Very good quality materials. I was a little bit scared of firing it up. But once I did it went well. I tried a small area and tho I didn’t think I did a good job…the next day the weeds had turned brown and were dead. I plan to use it mostly for killing driveway weeds at this time of the year. I hope this replaces using roundup. When the weather cools off I have a garden to start. I will update my review when I have a chance to fully use the pyroweeder and can gauge how much propane /hrs. of use. So far I am pleased with the purchase inspite of the sticker shock of how much it costs.

    Quality Construction and Materials

    Jim D.about 1 year agoVerified buyer

    I purchase and assemble a lot of different products, but have never assembled a product as well designed, implemented and constructed as the pyroweeder. The assembly instructions and attention to detail in all aspects of this equipment is quite remarkable. So far, I have limited experience using the pyroweeder and am still dialing in the best angle of attack of the flame tubes and gas pressure to maximize effectiveness. It is an awesome piece of equipment!

    Super high quality

    The parts are made to exacting standards. This made for easy assembly. The manual was very well written in pkain simple easy to understand english. Using the Pyroweeder is easy on the body. The Pyroweeder is adjustable for the operator. I will buy from Farmers Friend again.

    Ordered and received in good time but have not got the chance to use yet the only think I would maybe do different is maybe make the bottle carrier, so you didn't have to strap in other than that looks good just waiting to be able to use Thanks Dwayne
