I sense a great Photoshop opportunity.

Freud would have a stroke (or two) over the symbolism of an amputee with a giant flamethrower between his legs

/but sometimes a flamethrower is just a flamethrower

The guy is scum of the earth should be shot in the groin for torching the cacti.

Philbb: whatshisname: Apos: KILL IT WITH FIRE!

Aren't Saguaro cactii protected from that sort of ass-hattery?

Yes. As awesome as this device is, torching a Saguaro should land him, and anyone who helped him, in PMITA prison. After which we can only hope that he will be pounded in the ass by a saguaro.


The State of Arizona allows people to report crimes via the internet.

doglover: That's not a flamethrower, that's a propane torch.

Put one of these on your chair, dude.


Wow, thanks for that. I used to use them playing the board game (Squad Leader, Panzer Leader, something like that.) but seeing the footage of them in action and hearing the discussion on how they were feared and hated really was fascinating!

Thanks for posting!

I'd show interest in this, but I have to be at WalMart in 26 minutes.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Lance Greathouse's mobility scooter - christened Lord Humungous - has a flame-thrower that spits fire 10m (35ft)

A Glock 17 spits lead 50m (164ft).  You lose.




You ever tried hitting targets at a hundred feet with a pistol?

/You ever seen how badly the average gang member shoots?

StatelyGreekAutomaton: "around the length of a double decker bus "

WTF? Because double decker buses are known for the significant difference in length from normal buses, I suppose?


Well... some buses.

But a double-decker bus is a standard unit of measurement in the press, along with areas the size of Wales/Rhode Island etc.

How about 40' or less if you flank the chair?  Gang members may not be the smartest, but they understand getting close and catching someone from behind with a pipe.  As Mock26 pointed out, this guy is a threat to cacti but not really much else.

A twelve-year-old with a boxcutter would have a 50-50 chance of taking that guy out in a fair fight. Add a second kid and I'd up the odds to 99% that wheelchair-guy would be dead. This is assuming the guy saw the kids coming. With the advantage of surprise, dude would be dead dead dead.

I'm pretty sure the cacti are in the backgeound.

Lsherm: CruiserTwelve: Good to see American ingenuity being used for the benefit of mankind.

He's a machinist that builds custom wheelchairs for customers.  His first wheelchair was for his brother who had Parkinson's, but he died before the chair was completed.

As for the chair in the article, that's an amputee sitting it in (right leg below the knee is fake).  I think it was one of their special projects for Burning Man, an off-road wheelchair with what's essentially a flame gun.

No one is using that as their primary means of handicapped transportation.  Why would they?


Was gonna say that rig had Burning man  written all over it.   Seen a lot of similar vehicles there

"For you the flamethrower scooter was the strangest, most exotic, vehicle you'd ever seen, for me it was a Tuesday at Burning Man
