The Easy Kit is made up of an ergonomic trolley carrying a 13kg (30 lbs) gas bottle, along with a thermal lance suited for “comfortable” weeding in push mode or “precision” weeding in carry mode. The various configurations possible, along with the power of the hot air stream, provide you optimum working comfort and unprecedented adaptability.
The thermal lance
The RIPAGREEN® thermal lance has adjustable heating power. It diffuses the heat from a short and rigid flame through its stainless steel nozzle.
It is designed for ergonomic use by a single operator either pushed to cover large areas quickly and effortlessly, or carried to deal with complex or isolated areas.
In “Two-operator” mode, the jobs of controlling the trolley and weeding using the lance are shared between two operators.
The ‘’Click & Start’’ system means the lance can be instantly turned on using a piezo switch. When the trigger is released, the flow of gas is automatically cut off. No pilot light means that no gas is wasted as you move between weed patches. A spare piezo igniter, which can be switched out in just 30 seconds, with no tools required (thanks to our patented system), is stored in the operating handle so you can work without interruption.
Thanks to its unique shape, the thermal lance’s Venturi tube inhales and propels air at high speed, mixing it with the perfect amount of gas to create a small, controlled flame, which heats the propelled air as it passes through. This provides you with an instant, steady, and constant flow of hot air.
This resistant and ergonomic handle with its “Soft-grip” covering can be positioned anywhere along the lance to suit any user, and folds back automatically after use.
The stainless steel heat diffuser can rotate 360° and blows a steady ray of heat in order to guarantee precise weeding over an area 40 cm in width (16 inches). Its unique manufacturing design and quality materials make it extremely durable and long-lasting.
The operating handle is equipped with a rotating connector to facilitate auto-alignment of the gas hose as you move the lance around. Its angled shape also makes it easier to uncouple the gas hose.

The RIPAGREEN® trolley carries the gas cylinder, thermal weeding lance and pipe along with a water spray or fire extinguisher (not supplied).
Constructed using steel tube, it is sturdy and squeezes in anywhere thanks to its compact size.
It enables long narrow areas to be treated safely, quickly and efficiently.
The stainless steel tiller is used to push the trolley for single-operator working or enables it to be pulled to move quickly to or from an area. A parking brake immobilises the trolley on slopes.
The double-safety pressure regulator regulates the flow of gas, cutting it off automatically in the event of damage to the high-pressure line. It also controls pressure levels in the gas bottle, in order to protect the lance against overheating. The adjustable power on the regulator enables you to adjust the device to all types of weeding areas in all weather conditions.
The unique design of the stainless steel control tiller allows you to position your lance for weeding along the edge of a wall or a gutter while pushing the trolley. In the central position, the lance covers a 40cm-wide (16 inches) strip for weeding a pavement or alleyway. The reversible control tiller allows you to pull or push the trolley, while offering two separate positions for the thermal lance. There is also a device enabling the lance height to be adjusted to suit the user and the surface to be weeded.
With its low centre of gravity, the RIPAGREEN® trolley can mount the kerb without risk of toppling over. The bottle is easy to set in place thanks to its inclined position. Just 55cm wide (22 inches), the trolley will follow you anywhere—even cramped spaces where weeding is difficult.
Its 3 solid non-puncture wheels give the RIPAGREEN® trolley the manoeuvrability and stability required for tough weeding work. Their diameter allows you to work on both hard ground or on less stable surfaces such as sand or gravel.
The steel tube support frame means the trolley is sturdy yet lightweight. At 12.5kg (26 lbs), it ensures easy movement of the gas bottle and thermal lance during your weeding operations. A rear parking break lets you immobilise the trolley in the inclined position.
The RIPAGREEN® trolley carries a 13kg bottle of propane gas (30 lbs), along with all the essential safety equipment needed for professional weeding. It is easy to set up and won’t take up too much space in your vehicle.
