Sheen X300 Flamegun


In a nutshell....

High end flamegun from Sheen for use as a weedkiller. A flamegun is the best kind of weed killer on the market and is also the easiest to use. Burns at 1093 degrees celsius (2000 Degrees F)

Add to Cart

Digging out weeds is very labour intensive and can cause aches and strains quite easily. A safe, organic alternative to manual weeding is flame weeding. This uses a flame torch to burn the top foliage of the weed which in turn dries out the plant and kills off the root below the surface.

The Sheen Flamegun range has been manufactured in Britain since 1952 to an excellent standard with very little modifications to its original design. It is fuelled by paraffin, also known as kerosene, and requires minimal maintenance. Complete with a one gallon fuel tank it has an integral pump and pressure gauge for greater efficiency.

It can be used on beds and borders and is perfect for removing fungal growth and moss from patio and paving.

Once the Flamegun is primed and started up simply pass the torch flame across the plant leaves until they are heated up, this dries out and destroys the plants cell structure which will prevent any further movement of sap. The plant will die back and after a secondary blast will disintegrate into a nutrient rich potash, replenishing and feeding the soil.

Usage Tip from Sheen: The fuel tank of the X300 is best filled to two thirds full, and this will then run for 45 minutes continuously on full power.

Please note: This is a utilitarian product, made in an old fashioned factory and the paint finish can be rustic. We do not warrant against blemishes or marks on the paintwork - the factory make a good product that works well, but occasionally marks are present in the paint - it's been like that for 50 years and we can't change this. The Sheen X300 however is very practical and superb and doing what it is meant for - killing weeds.

Tank Capacity: 1 gal / 4.54 litres

Fuel: Paraffin or Kerosene

Operating temp: 1093 degrees C (2000 degrees F)

Weight (without fuel): 6kg

Dimensions (boxed): 690 x 350 x 240mm

Includes cleaning and maintenance tools

Quick and easy to use, cleared the weeds from the patio in no time. Would recommend.

Very solid build flame gun, impressed with it. Only used it once so far but weeds drooping and dying down, looking forward to strike two and burning them off. Goes through kerosene quite quickly, about 30 mins a tank but I was getting carried away!

Excellent. Scorched off all the moss on a big concrete yard and deweeded all the vegetable garden's gravel paths in just one day. Sturdy, safe, simple to use, and no worries about toxic weedkillers. Wish I'd found this years ago.

This X300 flamegun is great! I found a video on youtube which showed exactly how to get it going and it worked well for me. I did make one change; I am burning agri-diesel instead of kerosene (I find it works great!). I do this because I always have diesel on hand and I don't want the hassle of buying/storing kerosene as well. As well as killing weeds I found another use; lighting piles of waste green wood which would be impossible otherwise is easy with the great heat it produces. When finishing up, be careful where you put it down as it can take a few minutes to shut down and it remains very hot. A really great tool! Recommended.

Hi Niall, I'm looking to clean up a gravel driveway without chemicals and this looks a plan. Do you think it could take care of brambles as well?
Answered by Niall
on June 18th, 2019
Hi Olive It will take care of brambles however it will take a few goes to full kill them off. Also be careful that it is not during a dry spell that you tackle brambles as you don't want to start a hedge fire. Not that you would need to worry to much about that this weather Niall Quickcrop

Hi I'm interested in purchasing this but just wanted to know can you kill weeds in grass/lawn area without killing grass? Also wondering if you have a lot of area to do and need to refill tank is it safe to do while still hot after turning off? Thanks
Answered by Niall
on May 24th, 2019
Hi Wendie I am afraid if you try to burn off weeds in a lawn you will also kill the grass. Refilling the tank when hot is not an issue however you do have to turn it off before doing so Niall Quickcrop

Hi, Would there be any issue ordering one of these and bringing it (unopened or used) onto a plane (Ryanair)as part of the carry-on luggage?
Answered by Niall
on October 22nd, 2018
Hi Damian I don't know but i really can't imagine if you can't get a nail clippers or liquids on a flight that you would get what is essentially a flame thrower on board. But let me know how you get on. Its a strange auld world out there Niall Quickcrop
