Propane Tank, Blow Torch Strapped To Hand CartJohn Jamieson uses a propane-fired blow torch to burn brush and weeds. He got tired of having to carry the tank and blow torch around the farm yard by hand, so he mounted both of them on an old hand cart.
The tank is secured to the hand cart by a pair of ratchet straps. The torch fits into a pair of spring-loaded brackets that Jamieson screwed to the handle of the cart.
"It's a simple but handy idea," says Jamieson. "I also place the tank in the bed of my Deere Gator and use the torch to burn weeds along fence lines. I keep an acetylene torch igniter on the cart so I don't have to strike a match."
