Draper Weed Burner: Like a Superhero Torch, but for Your Garden!

Draper Weed Burner Review

We were entrusted with testing out the Draper Weed Burner in our garden.

This family-owned business has provided top-notch tools for tradespeople, professionals, and DIY enthusiasts for over a hundred years.

With a whopping 11,000 products on offer, Draper Tools‘ modern warehouse management and snazzy technology ensure that they process and send out thousands of customer orders every week to over 80 countries worldwide. That’s some serious hustle!

The Draper Weed Burner is a breeze to put together – no need for any fancy tools or gadgets; simply attach the handle to the slot and give it a good twist to lock it in place. Voila! Your new fiery friend is good to go.

And with two handy nozzles to choose from, you can use the narrow one for lighting up your BBQ or switch to the cone-shaped nozzle to put those pesky weeds to the torch. Burn, baby, burn!

Say Goodbye to Weeds and Hello to Neat Lawns with Draper Weed Burner

The Draper Weed Burner saves the day and spares you from the embarrassment of having unkempt lawns and gardens.

With its sleek design and two settings, this garden gadget is like the superhero of weed control. It’s like having Captain America come and vanquish the weeds, except without the shield and spandex. You’ll be the envy of all your neighbours with your green thumbs and immaculate lawn, all thanks to the Draper Weed Burner.

The Draper Weed Burner‘s power cable only goes for 1.7m (or 5.5ft), so a slightly longer cable would have been better. On the bright side, switching between Low and High settings is a breeze with a simple slider. Although, we found the High setting is best for burning those weeds. 

And on top of that, the Draper Weed Burner takes only about 30 seconds to heat up, and the fan inside hums at a level lower than your average hairdryer. So, no need to put your ears on lockdown!

The Draper Weed Burner will scorch those pesky weeds but don’t go overboard. You only need 5 to 15 seconds of 600C heat to zap those nasty weeds. 

And the best part? The weeds will be gone in just a few days! We were shocked to see some of the stubborn weeds not make a comeback. Boom!

Get your hands on this fiery tool – but don’t get burnt!

Don’t be a fool with this tool; it’s seriously hot and pumps out 600C air like nobody’s business. Luckily, the metal stand saves the day by preventing you from incinerating the ground. Plus, the nozzle cools down in less than five minutes.

And to avoid a cable catastrophe, the handle has a built-in attachment to keep it clear of the hot nozzle.

So, let’s check out the Draper Weed Burner‘s perks! Firstly, it’s not expensive and safer than dousing your garden with chemicals.

No more back-breaking weed-pulling sessions either, and it’s a breeze to handle – both easy to manage and light in weight.

Plus, it even comes with an excellent 2-year warranty!


The History of Draper Tools

  •  In 1919, Bert Draper began Draper Tools by selling government surplus and tools in markets near Kingston Upon Thames.
  •  In 1963, the company relocated to Chandler’s Ford. The place used to be a royal navy victualling depot and was the central storage for the shadow factories that manufactured spitfires during World War II.
  • In 1963, Norman Draper, Bert Draper’s son, took over the company. Presently, the 4th generation of the Draper family, Bert’s great-grandsons Tom and Joe Draper, along with their father, John Draper, are leading the company.
  • Draper Tools were sponsors of Southampton FC for a good nine years between 1984 and 1993, which is a fond memory for many locals.
  • In 2006, Draper Tools acquired another location in the UK, North Baddesley.
  • 2018 Draper welcomed Holland’s Delta International to their family as part of their international expansion efforts.
  • In 2019, the company proudly marked its 100th anniversary with a massive event for current and former employees and their families at the North Baddesley location.
  • Draper Tools published its inaugural sustainability and ethics report in 2021, outlining its environmental progression and commitment to transparency. The company’s efforts were recognized by being named a finalist for a DIY WEEK award.
