Peaceful Valley sells them mail order as do a couple of other
places but they're not that different from the large propane
torches you see the roofers use. I got one of those at Lowes
and it works okay. Pretty big exposed flame though which
I don't love. There's one company that sells a flamer that
doesn't have an exposed flame but rather a heating element.
It also has a little spike on the end of it which supposedly
conducts heat down the tap root. I've never used one and
I can't remember the name but if you do a web search
it'll come up.

Gardeners has them with a small opening, I have a large weed torch but I wouldn't try to use it on turf. I use it for heating and bending PVC pipe as well
