KCR began manufacturing drip torches in 1980. With a strong focus on craftsmanship and quality, the KCR Drip Torch has become the most recognized drip torch among forestry and outdoor professionals across the country and around the world.
KCR's Drip Torch is used in wildfire suppression, controlled burning, prescribed burns, and other forestry applications as well as agricultural and farm use applications.
This drip torch is designed for igniting fires in vegetation with a mixture of diesel fuel and gasoline. The tank and handle assembly is made of lightweight aluminum. The tank has a 6" diameter and 1-1/4 gallon capacity. The spout/igniter assembly can be stowed inside of the fuel tank when torch is not in use. The spout with steel fuel trap extends a minimum of 10” from the top of the tank to the end of the nozzle with the igniter extending beyond the nozzle. The fuel trap in the spout and check valve assembly in the tank cover provides flashback protection. The breather valve assembly provides smooth flow of fuel when torch is in use.

The drip torch worked perfectly. I used it to burn off several buffer strips, and it worked great on upwind, downwind, and side fires. I was surprised at how little fuel it actually used. I wish I had gotten one of these years ago.

I used my new drip torch yesterday to burn off several creek side buffer strips. I found it to be very easy to set up and use, quite sturdy, and also cleaned up and stored very nicely. It is amazing how little fuel -- 4:1 diesel:gas mixture -- I used. I look forward to using this for many years to come.
