Glyphosate is much more environmentally friendly than everything except the vinegar and chances are that was industrially manufactured. The trolley is not even suitable for carrying a canister of gas let alone a bottle because it's just not made well at all. The Parasene Weed Wand is a walking-stick shaped device, which is lightweight, a convenient size and of a well balnaced construction, making it comfortable and easy to handle, when operated fron a standing position. It is quite fun, but it only turns over tiny weeds.
Fire was never going to kill off things like dandelions and grasses such as couch or kikuyu. All in all don't waste your money.

This will prolong the life of the hose. A sack barrow design would have been better.
The unit comes with a separate flint lighter. Noone would call table salt or alcohol acutely toxic and expect to be taken seriously. The Parasene Weed-Wand will appeal to every gardener. The trolley is an optional feature. I made three test areas and all seem clear a week later.

Very poor welding ensured it was next to useless. Glyphosate has been found in streams following agricultural, urban, and forestry applications.

Especially if you start spraying petrol around. The Flood jet spray nozzle ensures a perfect spray pattern. Oh yeah, and the batteries in it still worked, 2 flies have been zapped today! None of which you'll here from the salesman who has us all duped in whatever we buy. Specifications: Uses standard gas bottle in 7kg to 20kg canisters. Operation of each sprayer is simplicity itself; push and the machine will spray, stop and spraying will cease. Each weed only needs a few seconds of exposure to the heat to be killed, making this process far more economical than traditional weed killers.

I dealt with a massive amount of chickweed in a native grassland area very well with it, but I hit it when the chickweed was at its first true leaf stage. It is a synthetic chemical. Spraying petrol could be very nasty if there was a spark or any other source of ignition. Extoxnet has the low down on all common chemicals no salesmen involved.
