WEEDS DESTROYED BY BURNER IN PORTABLE UNIT (Jun, 1935)

Remember, the dapper man always wears a suit when burninating his vines.

WEEDS DESTROYED BY BURNER IN PORTABLE UNIT

Easy to carry from place to place, a weed burner solves the problem of clearing land. It throws a fan-shaped flame that mushrooms against the ground, stone wall or rock pile to “melt” every growing plant within its range. One model of the burner is self-contained for one-man operation. It has a tank that holds oil for one and one-half hours” work. The handle is constructed for attachment of a shoulder strap or webbing to facilitate carrying. Thetorch also can be used for sterilizing poultry houses, dog kennels and stables.

    Hehe. Maybe he was the real-life inspiration for Oliver Wendell Douglas on “Green Acres.”

    That suit was probably all-wool, which is fireproof. Not the last word in fireproof-ness, even ing 1935- that would’ve been asbestos- but better than cotton denim.

    Please, oh please, someone make a pyro mod for Team Fortress 2 that looks like this.

    This should be in the “ahead of it’s time” section … these exist today as a proven method of weed control

    No wonder I can’t keep the weeds down in my garden… I usually wear old clothes instead of a suit and tie…

    Agree this should be in ‘Ahead of its Time’ category – they sell them under the name Weed Dragon, and they are far, far too much fun…
