Torch Holder For ATV's

Holding a propane torch can get a bit tiring on the arm, while riding the fields burning straw. Many people are now also using torches to burn weeds around buildings or along fencerows. There are times when you need to let go of the torch suddenly to control your ATV, or just to rest your arm.
  Todd Dennis solved this problem for his neighbor by building an out-rigger arm for the rear of his ATV, to carry the weight of the torch. Then he added a couple of flexible joints so the operator can swing the torch in and out, forward and back.
  "The forward-back motion is really handy. It lets you aim the torch. Without slowing the ATV, you just drive by and swing the torch down and back as you go by. There's a fair bit of sideways movement at the torch head, so you don't have to get close every time. It's always easier to move the torch than to try and get the ATV exactly in line," says Dennis, who runs a small metal fabrication business on his farm near Rosser, Manitoba.
