Are you tired of shoveling snow the old fashioned way? Or clearing that field with a tractor? Then the XM42 might just be for you!

This handheld flamethrower is set to hit the market in the near future. It’s currently legal in 49 states (why no fun California?) and will be priced at $699.


The device can fire flames 20-25 feet from the end of the nozzle and it is fueled by a small onboard gas tank that utilizes standard 87 octane gasoline.

The company behind the invention, Ion Productions, will be running a crowdsourcing campaign through IndieGoGo where interested parties can pre-order the product in order to fund its production.

Ion says they will be launching the campaign on Monday, March 23rd and you can follow their Facebook page or visit their website for more details on how you can get one.


About Reagan Wilson

Reagan enjoys all things political. After realizing that neither of the current mainstream political parties encompass his beliefs he awaits the emergence of a true small government party. Good scotch, good cigars, mechanical watches, and SEC football round out his interests.
