The Mobility Kit features an innovative ergonomic harness that can attached to all types of “small format” gas bottles (5-6kg of propane) and a mini thermal lance that’s both light and easy to handle. The power of the hot air stream is combined with a highly mobile system, enabling you to work quickly and safely.
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 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 innovative Ripagreen® ergonomic harness accepts all types of “small” gas cylinders (5 to 6 kg propane). It offers optimal comfort with adjustable straps and swivel stainless steel arm at the front.
The adjustable shoulder straps make it easy to adjust the harness to your body size and shape. The support pads can also be adjusted for users of any height.
An inflatable cushion situated between the braces enables you to adjust the harness to fit the small of your back and evenly distribute the weight of the Kit. In just a few seconds, the harness is adjusted to fit your body shape.
PIVOTING SUPPORT ARM
The Mobility Kit includes a pivoting stainless steel arm in the front, enabling you to make an effortless 180° sweeping motion. It can be positioned on the left or the right of the harness, and supports the lance during one-handed weeding operations. The mini lance is then suspended from an bungee cord to absorb the motion as you move around.
METAL BACK PLATE
A light but shock-resistant aluminium back plate reinforces the Kit for greater stability. A hook and two straps secure the gas bottle firmly in place as you move around.
A sleek slipcover covers the bottle for improved safety; its reflective stripes mean you stay perfectly visible when weeding in urban areas or along the roadside.
