BEN MEADOWS Drip Torches

All the Features of Heavier Drip Torches

Since 1980, the Pacific Northwest company that makes these Red DOT Ben Meadows Drip Torches has had a half-dozen dedicated people handcraft all Ben Meadows Drip Torches to be the best on the market. Interchangeable parts make them practical in the field and they work with no pre-heating, pumping or slopping fuel. These versatile tools can be used for slash and brush disposal,
roadside burning, agricultural clearing or back firing. Made of 15-ga. seamless extruded aluminum with a raised edge on the one-piece cast bottom. Seams are welded to resist heat and leaks. Die-cast aluminum cover with check valve provides double protection against flashback. Can is 6-1/4" dia. x 25"H in operating position, 14"H with burner stored inside. 1-1/4 gal. capacity. Both use No. 1 diesel fuel. Kerosene or stove oil may be used as additives.

I am not a forestry trained individual but find the torch to be very well made and designed, with good offering of repair parts. Would be helpful to include the following clarifications that I did not find in Ben Meadows instructions: fuel tank should be emptied before inverting spout/igniter for storage; while safest fuel option may be diesel-kerosene mix advised by Ben Meadows, that mix is inferior to the usual fuel mix recommendations provided by on-line and state forestry sources (diesel-gasoline in 3:1 - 5:1 ratio,depending on conditions.)

I followed the instructions on the side of the torch and it would not stay lit. It stated to use diesel fuel and indicated you could add kerosene so I did 3 parts diesel to one part kerosene. It would not lite at all. It also stated not to use gasoline, however the videos I watched stated to use the same ratio, 3 parts diesel to one part gasoline.

I cannot get this unit to work as advertised. RIght now, a waste of money.

            I can burn off ditches and field margins for a fraction of the cost of using a propane torch. And its just as fast, if not a little faster.
