Sunburst, Inc. announced a major innovation in hand-held weed control systems with the addition of SpHot Weeder. The open flame torch system is the latest addition to the company's line of patented thermal weed control tools and provides users with an economical, effective and less hazardous way to manage unwanted vegetation.

The SpHot Weeder's basket design revolutionizes existing hand-held weed control systems by channeling an open flame to produce unprecedented results and precision. The lightweight design is ideal for an array of routine weed control applications, including fence lines, gravel areas, pavements, trails and more.

“While developing large-scale commercial tools, we saw the need for equipment that serves both small or hard to treat areas,” said president Greg Prull. “We are excited to introduce a tool that not only provides a safe and targeted way to remove weeds, but also eliminates the need for herbicides.”

The system is built using only the highest quality components to ensure long lasting, high-quality performance with minimal maintenance. The device is available in single or double burner models, offering scaled precision for a variety of uses. Available accessories include a fuel supply wand, hose, regulator and backpack with a 2.6 gallon tank. The portable pack allows users to work without being tethered to a long supply hose, making the SpHot Weeder system mobile and convenient to use.

Sunburst, Inc. has been developing and testing superior thermal vegetation management technology and equipment while pioneering methods in advanced modernized flaming for weed control in a wide range of settings for nearly two decades. SpHot Weeder is available for purchase online at
