Man Builds Homemade Flamethrower For Snow Removal

January 23, 2019


This is a video of a Grassy, Missouri man demonstrating the homemade flamethrower he constructed for quick snow removal. In his own words while I build a similar flamethrower to test if it's equally quick at roommate removal. UPDATE: He's already packing and I haven't even tested it yet, although I did make it clear I would be testing it on his bed:

"Ever since I was a kid I always thought it'd be cool to have a flamethrower so now that I'm older and more knowledgeable I went out and built one out of spare parts in my shop. It runs off a diesel and oil mix and is powered by co2. I hate snow and love to catch stuff on fire so I set the snow ablaze. Burns five gallons of diesel in about ten minutes and gets extremely hot. Has quick change tips to fan the spray or stream it for long distances of up to fifty ft."

Mmmm, the ol' diesel and oil mix -- that must have smelled amazing. 'Helllllllllp meeeeeeee.' The environment, ladies and gentleman! I only wish I could have been there to hold a cigar in my mouth and bet him he couldn't light it. "You're a brave soul, GW." I am the bravest soul. Now if you'll excuse me *yanks off tearaway track pants to reveal Speedo* I have a snorkeling date with a volcano.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Clint, who agrees the best way to remove snow is to hibernate until spring, by which point Mother Nature should have removed it herself.

  • The guy is a fool.
    What he clearly needs for that job is a lawnmower.

    I see a white driveway and I want it painted black...

    Great, another worthless but expensive way to remove snow that I could do better and faster with a regular shovel…

  • GeneralDisorder

    That looks cost effective, safe and totally legal.

    Obligatory repost of an old meme:

    Is that how he clears leaves in the fall, too?

    Have fun slipping on all that ice after the water freezes.

    in this song of ice and fire, the ice clearly won

    More knowledgeable not any wiser.

    According to Google diesel is roughly $3 / gallon. So about $15 of fuel to melt snow for 10 minutes.

    And all he really did (and what he won't realize until the next morning) was prep his driveway to turn into an ice skating surface. Genius...

    Negative points for vertical video.

    A hand held regular blow torch is likely both more effective and less stench cost and likely to get you visited by local enforcement.

    i'm getting an "unincorporated" vibe from this dude's property

  • Wooder

    That morning smell of fuel on the lawn afterwards is to die for.

    Mental note: fix dead grass spots and replace driveway in spring.

    It smells like victory.

    You misspelled FREEDOM.
