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.

An excellent tool for moderate destruction of all things flammable. Ant hills and cockroaches are particularly satisfying. I would give this product 5 stars if it allowed me to shoot fireballs like Mario.

I used the Inferno Propane torch to burn some weeds growing through the grout joints on my flagstone and it was awesome. Also burned some pine needles and leaves in my decorative stones. Really happy I purchased this.

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!!!!

It gets the job done but could have been made to flame up when handle pressed so it doesn't have to be full blast the whole time and waste propane.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sue5 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.
