Sheen X300 Flamegun


In a nutshell....

High end flamegun from Sheen for use as a weedkiller. A flamegun is the best kind of weed killer on the market and is also the easiest to use. Burns at 1093 degrees celsius (2000 Degrees F)



Digging out weeds is very labour intensive and can cause aches and strains quite easily. A safe, organic alternative to manual weeding is flame weeding. This uses a flame torch to burn the top foliage of the weed which in turn dries out the plant and kills off the root below the surface.

The Sheen Flamegun range has been manufactured in Britain since 1952 to an excellent standard with very little modifications to its original design. It is fuelled by paraffin, also known as kerosene, and requires minimal maintenance. Complete with a one gallon fuel tank it has an integral pump and pressure gauge for greater efficiency.

It can be used on beds and borders and is perfect for removing fungal growth and moss from patio and paving.

Once the Flamegun is primed and started up simply pass the torch flame across the plant leaves until they are heated up, this dries out and destroys the plants cell structure which will prevent any further movement of sap. The plant will die back and after a secondary blast will disintegrate into a nutrient rich potash, replenishing and feeding the soil.

Usage Tip from Sheen: The fuel tank of the X300 is best filled to two thirds full, and this will then run for 45 minutes continuously on full power.

Please note: This is a utilitarian product, made in an old fashioned factory and the paint finish can be rustic. We do not warrant against blemishes or marks on the paintwork - the factory make a good product that works well, but occasionally marks are present in the paint - it's been like that for 50 years and we can't change this. The Sheen X300 however is very practical and superb and doing what it is meant for - killing weeds.

Tank Capacity: 1 gal / 4.54 litres

Fuel: Paraffin or Kerosene

Operating temp: 1093 degrees C (2000 degrees F)

Weight (without fuel): 6kg

Dimensions (boxed): 690 x 350 x 240mm

Includes cleaning and maintenance tools

Quick and easy to use, cleared the weeds from the patio in no time. Would recommend.

Very solid build flame gun, impressed with it. Only used it once so far but weeds drooping and dying down, looking forward to strike two and burning them off. Goes through kerosene quite quickly, about 30 mins a tank but I was getting carried away!

Excellent. Scorched off all the moss on a big concrete yard and deweeded all the vegetable garden's gravel paths in just one day. Sturdy, safe, simple to use, and no worries about toxic weedkillers. Wish I'd found this years ago.

This X300 flamegun is great! I found a video on youtube which showed exactly how to get it going and it worked well for me. I did make one change; I am burning agri-diesel instead of kerosene (I find it works great!). I do this because I always have diesel on hand and I don't want the hassle of buying/storing kerosene as well. As well as killing weeds I found another use; lighting piles of waste green wood which would be impossible otherwise is easy with the great heat it produces. When finishing up, be careful where you put it down as it can take a few minutes to shut down and it remains very hot. A really great tool! Recommended.

I was wanting to order the flame gun; but I noticed that it is currently out of stock. Do you know when it will become available again? Also I wanted to know whether the hood is advisable particularly when working near buildings. Also is it OK on mono block?
Answered by Niall
on September 02nd, 2020
Hi Bill We will have them back in stock at the end of the month at the latest. The hood makes the whole process work a lot faster and more effectively although to be honest i mainly work without it. That said it is great in windy conditions. I am afraid i can't advise on it working with Mono Block but i don't see any reason why it would not be ok Niall Quickcrop

Removing couch grass and Bindweed? Hi, do you think this Flamegun will work to remove couch grass and bindweed as I have this all over a new garden I have?
Answered by Niall
on July 16th, 2020
Hi Richard Yes it will work for both however you will need to burn the area off probably 3 times. Every 3/4 weeks for 3 goes. This burns the top off and eventually starves the roots. Very effective Niall Quickcrop

Hi There - Does the inferno kill horsetail weed? Just been out with my bunson burner to try and it seemed to take massive offense to the heat and melted. Pay this might work! Thank you!
Answered by Niall
on June 08th, 2020
Hi Georgie Yes. I have horsetail and it seems to work very well on it Niall Quickcrop

Hi, Interested in this for week control. Where would you source parrafin/kerosene in the Sligo area for use in the Flamegun
Answered by Andrew
on May 19th, 2020
Hi Jim. I live in Ballymote and can get it from the pump at the filling station. I would expect Sligo Fuels and plenty of other 'agricultural' filling stations have it also. It is the same as home heating oil.
Asked By Walter van der Merwe
on May 15th, 2020
Hi Andrew, I saw your review on the Sheen flame gun, would it be as effective on briars new growth, I do not like spraying and hopefully the flame gun will be a way around it. Thank you. Regards, Walter
Answered by Niall
on May 16th, 2020
Hi Walter Yes it is actually really good on even existing briars however you have to go over them a few times before the job is done. I have used it on numerous patches of briars and eliminated them Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Jane
on May 15th, 2020
Would this work on a large area of tarmac or would it melt it?
Answered by Niall
on May 16th, 2020
Hi Jane Yes it will. It works perfectly fine on tarmac. Not on raw tar however as it will melt it but tarmac is no problem Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Vincent
on April 22nd, 2020
Is it effective on ground ivy?
Answered by Niall
on April 22nd, 2020
Hi Vincent Yes however you will need to go over it each week for about 3 weeks to kill it 100% Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Kathy clark
on November 15th, 2019
Can it be used on hogweed?
Answered by Niall
on November 15th, 2019
HI Kathy It can of course however as Hogweed is so deep rooted it will need a couple of goes over it before the Hogweed gives up and dies Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Olive
on June 18th, 2019
Hi Niall, I'm looking to clean up a gravel driveway without chemicals and this looks a plan. Do you think it could take care of brambles as well?
Answered by Niall
on June 18th, 2019
Hi Olive It will take care of brambles however it will take a few goes to full kill them off. Also be careful that it is not during a dry spell that you tackle brambles as you don't want to start a hedge fire. Not that you would need to worry to much about that this weather Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Hawt Cwnt
on June 15th, 2019
You say in the description it kills weeds off patio and paving. But won't it blacken and/or crack the paving stones from the fire and the heat?
Answered by Niall
on June 17th, 2019
No it is fine. I use one of these on my own patio and once you move along at a brisk pace there are no issues for either cracking or blackening of the paving slabs. I use it on my patio regularly without any issues Niall Quickcrop
Asked By wendie
on May 24th, 2019
Hi I'm interested in purchasing this but just wanted to know can you kill weeds in grass/lawn area without killing grass? Also wondering if you have a lot of area to do and need to refill tank is it safe to do while still hot after turning off? Thanks
Answered by Niall
on May 24th, 2019
Hi Wendie I am afraid if you try to burn off weeds in a lawn you will also kill the grass. Refilling the tank when hot is not an issue however you do have to turn it off before doing so Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Nichola Fletcher
on May 08th, 2019
I've been toying with buying one of these. As well as gravel areas etc, we have a gravel garden with precious plants in it but quite spaced out till they expand. I can see the extent of the flame in the video & pictures, but how far away from plants you want to keep should aim the flame so you don't fry them with the blast of heat?
Answered by Niall
on May 08th, 2019
Hi Nichola Once you get the flame running well which is about 1 minute after you ignite the flame it is a fairly funneled flame and if you keep it back from the ground about 2 feet it is very accurate so easy to stay away from plants you are trying to avoid. The closer you place it to the ground the more it spreads out Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Mark
on January 18th, 2019
What are the cleaning and maintenance tools?
Answered by Niall
on January 18th, 2019
Hi Mark You don't really need them until maybe year 2 or 3 depending on how much use your Sheen Flame gun is getting. It is really like any piece of machinery it just needs regular maintenance but the kit is very self explanatory Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Andy
on November 11th, 2018
Can it be used on tarmac drive ways for moss removal and weeds
Answered by Niall
on November 12th, 2018
Hi Andy It can indeed and it actually works really well on hard surfaces like this Regards Niall Quickcrop

I bought a flamegun from you 2 weeks ago. It's great. Do you stock the wheels and flame shield?

Hi Maria We don't have them on the website at the moment however we will have the full range of accessories in before the end of November Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Damian
on October 21st, 2018
Hi, Would there be any issue ordering one of these and bringing it (unopened or used) onto a plane (Ryanair)as part of the carry-on luggage?
Answered by Niall
on October 22nd, 2018
Hi Damian I don't know but i really can't imagine if you can't get a nail clippers or liquids on a flight that you would get what is essentially a flame thrower on board. But let me know how you get on. Its a strange auld world out there Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Fiona Neill
on October 18th, 2018
I would like to order one of these but live on Isle of Bute Scotland. How much would delivery be for this area?
Answered by Niall
on October 18th, 2018
Hi Fiona Thats not an issue. It is the same delivery charge as a normal mainland delivery 3.95 in total Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Jenny
on October 18th, 2018
Can it be shut off quickly?
Answered by Niall
on October 18th, 2018
Hi Jenny A great question. If you turn off the fuel it will cut itself off but it takes about a minute. In a panic situation you can just throw water on it and it will go out and won't damage the unit. That said it is not something that is going to blow up once lighting as it is to well built.
