QUESTION: How does Primus Weed Burner work? ANSWER: At the press of a button, a short flame ignites. Holding the hot flame about 5 cm above the weed for a few seconds wilts the green leaves, which over a period of days denies the weed the ability to take in sunlight,and it dies. QUESTION: Why does my flame shut off after about 5 minutes? ANSWER: Propane gets colder when pressure is released. When using a small tank, you can feel the tank get colder as the gas is released. After about 5 minutes, the tank gets so cold that the pressure drops inside the tank, and there isn't enough gas coming out to stay ignited. Letting the tank sit for about 15 minutes will allow it to warm up enough to build pressure in the tank back to a usable level. If you are going to use this tool for more than 5 minutes at a time, we suggest you use a larger tank, and a hose kit (Product Number 1508WS). This will solve the problem. QUESTION: Why are there holes drilled in that brass piece between the control knob and black handle? Won't the propane escape from them? ANSWER: The holes are so air mixes with the propane. No propane will escape from them, it just act as a sort of "carburator". QUESTION: Who do I call if my torch isn't working properly? ANSWER: You can call Sievert directly and ask for Mark (more...)
