Like some others I too had problems lighting this thing. After reading instructions in depth on google this thing is very powerful. You only need to open your propane valve slightly and turn the adjustment valve on the torch shaft about 1/8 of a turn. Squeezing the torch trigger slowly you'll hear and feel the rush of the 500,000 BTUS and see its power upon lighting it. Works well on weeds and lights a charcoal hibachi in seconds. Great product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Works decently
I got this to try to cut down on the amount of weed killer I needed to use. We have an old brick patio area where weeds come through the bricks. My husband used it when dew was starting to set in and I don't think it worked as well. I used it when it was drier but the weeds were still very green and it worked well. Large, thick stemmed plants I removed the top part of to make the process faster. It is a little tricky getting the hang of lighting it. If you aren't getting a strong enough flame, close your tank valve, bleed off the hose and start over again making sure not to open the valve on the torch too far.
I have arthritis in my hands that makes hanging on to this for longer periods difficult so I tend to change hands when using it. You have to keep hold of it while doing this because if you quit depressing the trigger you have to re-light it. I found that every now and then I would turn the valve one way or the other altering the amount of LP flow. Fortunately, most times it did not make it necessary to start over re-lighting it. It would be nice if the valve weren't so easy to bump.
Be careful using this around anything that may melt or that you don't want to burn. I saw where someone was using it around their house and I would want to make sure there was nothing that could potentially keep burning and cause damage to the house.
Overall, this is decent and does what it should. Doing it over, I would probably look for something self-lighting or at least with a pilot so you could let go of the trigger while changing hands or moving the tank out of the way. I would also make the valve on the torch so it couldn't be so easily moved.

The torch made cleaning the field easy and fast! Purchasing it was excellent decision.

If you are not hearing a sound like a jet fighter engine ... you opened the propane tank too much
Crack the tank just a little and then open the valve on the torch a little .... press the trigger and you will hear a jet noise light the flame and adjust the force of the flame
I made the mistake of cracking the tank too much and the flame was like a dozen bics - this means the safety valve on the tank has kicked in
If the torch is working properly the neighbors will complain about the noise and you will think you are in a Mad Max movie
I cannot underestimate how important it is too crack the propane tank just a little!!!!

I used this tourch twice and the second time I could not get the gas to flow, I think the safety valve stuck closed. When the tourch was working I thought t was very good, I have another similar tourch that I have had for 30 years and never had a problem. They just don't make them like they used to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flyer747 exellent product
I live in a desert environment, so my yard is mainly decorative rock, trees and bushes. I purchased this product to burn out clutter in the rocks. This unit far exceeded my expectation, it was easy to use, and thoroughly cleaned the rocks. A couple of points addressed above, read instructions, and turn on propane tank slowly, no problem lighting, second I am still on my first five gal tank, and have amassed about three or four hrs so far, I have a small gorilla garden wagon that I put the tank in and just tow it around instead of carrying the tank. Terrific product and great value to boot.
