Despite what many people may believe Flame throwers are legal to own in 49 states and have many practical uses from simple yard work to dealing with insects. They are also great at gatherings for lighting off fireworks on Independence day or lighting up a bonfire. Just don’t try to kill spiders in your laundry room with them. The XM 42, for example, was designed for fun and safe recreational use outdoors according to its makers.
The XM 42 is perfect for the Tactical Shithead that has everything. This Flaming Freedom Dispenser is more fun than a tornado in a trailer park. It uses Gasoline, Ether, or a 70% Gasoline/30% Diesel mix. Fire is never safe, but this thing is as safe as it gets keeping you protected while you launch a fiery stream up to 50 feet.
Developed with both aesthetics and performance in mind, the XM42 excels in all aspects. We wanted to bring a device to the market that represents what a real flamethrower should be.
Simple to use, endless possibilities for entertainment and utility. Start your bonfire from across the yard, or kill the weeds between your cracks in style.
The XM 42 has a range up to and beyond 25 feet from the nozzle.
The current fuel reservoir can allow for up to 38 seconds of constant full-on operation (if you so desired). The trigger switch can be operated momentarily or held on as long as desired until the tank is empty.
To Reload Simply turn off the pilot torch knob, open the fuel tank cap, and pour your fuel in. No worries about pressurization or needing to mix any additives. Officially approved fuels: Gasoline (unleaded), gasoline-diesel mixture, alcohol. Firefighters and controlled burn specialists typically use 30% diesel, 70% gasoline. Diesel won’t burn unless the ambient temperature is extremely high (126°F). The gasoline burning keeps the diesel above its flash point, and the nature of diesel keeps it around long enough to completely incinerate the foliage it is directed at.
Fully charged, the battery will hold around 12.6 volts. In our testing, we’ve been able to use the system for at least 50+ tank refills with the voltage still within safe levels (above 10 volts). It is important for lithium polymer batteries to remain above a particular voltage. In this battery’s case, 10 volts is the level where charging is an absolute must.
