Set-up includes a 400,000 BTU torch, 3 gallon fuel cylinder, hose and fittings, and backpack frame. Lightweight, aluminum frame includes padded shoulder straps and a (non-padded) waistband. Mesh strips stretched across the frame keep the tank from resting directly against your back (a real plus in the heat). Definitely a worthwhile investment if you need to spend much time flaming. Note: the Red Dragon Backpack Flamer comes with the same type of fuel regulating valve as the Hand-Held Flamer. Addition of the Squeeze-Valve and Pilot is highly recommended.
I purchased this back pack flamer a number of years ago from your site. Over the years, I used it sparingly, but this year, I decided to give it a real try and began using it on small weeds in my driveway and other areas. It works wonderfully and actually even takes out horse tail which is the bane of all northwest gardeners. Though it is a bit difficult to screw the fitting on the tank after filling, if you lay it on its back, it goes on pretty easily.Review by Chelito (on 6/6/11)
