XM42 – The World’s First Commercially Available Handheld Flamethrower


The XM42 is the world’s first commercially available handheld flamethrower. The XM42 is designed for all manner of household chores:

– Clearing snow and ice
– Eliminating weeds
– Insect control
– Bonfire starting
– Pyrotechnic event displays
– And more…

It feeds from an onboard fuel tank, and is intended to work with 87 octane gasoline. The effective range is roughly 20-25 feet from the nozzle.

There will be a campaign on Indiegogo starting the 23rd. We’ll update the article when the link is open.
