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 5.0 out of 5.0 by cwnjr Serious way to light a BBQ
I purchased this unit for lighting a smoker and a wood fired pizza oven. With the high fire risk in our area using paper to start the pizza oven was no longer safe, so I needed another way to accomplish it.
On the positive side: The torch puts out some serious heat and lights either hard wood or charcoal in a big hurry. It's easy to light and handle and the output is easily adjustable - although I've never used it full open (quarter open is more than enough)
One the negative side: The safety features on the new propane tank valves sometimes make it interesting to get the gas flowing to start it. The tank valve thinks it's wide open and leaking and shuts the valve safety off. Starting off with both valves partially open typically cures this.
The other negative that would really help the design is a pilot light - the torch is either on or off and nothing in between.

Excellent for driveway weed removal in the hands of a pyro husband. No chemicals and some fun.

Very easy to attach the torch to a propane tank, directions to light and use were very useful.

I thought I had a good product for the 1st four times I used it, but in less than a year, it just quit working. Hard to ignite, and when it does ignite, it will stay lit for only a second or two. Of course it's way past its 90 day warranty. Don't buy this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JRA 5 stars if they add a trigger start for the flame.
Product is what I expected. I use it to burn weeds from between my stone walkway and patio.
It does a fine job for that purpose. Only gave it a four star because I feel they should add a starter to it that you can just pull a trigger to stat the flame. I must say that they do at least give you a handheld sparker and that is a plus. Otherwise it is a 5 star product!
