What’s a Propane Wand?

A propane wand—also called a propane torch—is a handheld system that includes a propane tank and extended hose attachment that ends in a nozzle that emits propane-fueled flames. This tool can be handy if you are doing yard work and need to get rid of a large amount of weeds or otherwise need to perform a controlled burn.  

Propane wands allow you to precisely target things, like weeds, that you want to torch without the risk of starting a larger fire. The wand releases flames when triggered by you, so you don’t have to work with a continually burning fire, which could be dangerous to you and your property. Although propane wands offer the ability to perform controlled burns, it is still important to take the proper safety precautions, including wearing leather gloves and protective glasses.
