    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking to buy a piece of equipment who controls weed by steam. I have many contracts that requires weed control without any chemicals. It literally burns weed by spraying hot water (about 280* degrees). I know Aquacide build them, but do you know other enterprises in this market? Do you know where I could find used one? Thank you!

    Wouldn't that hot water be tough on the grass? Non-selective seems to me.

    But couldn't you use a propane torch?

    I hope you could do it without setting the bark on fire.

    It's used for boardwalk and mulch. We will not use it near grass.
