The Early Days
Throwflame, in Cleveland, OH, is the oldest flamethrower manufacturer in the US. Throwflame is focused on delivering top-tier flamethrower systems, made by veterans, to customers around the world.
In 2015, Throwflame released the first-ever full-sized, commercially available flamethrower: the X15. The X15 Flamethrower sends a stream of flaming fuel or napalm up to 50ft. It is completely unrestricted in 48 states.
This unregulated flamethrower sparked a significant media response relating to legality. However, flamethrowers remain federally unregulated. This means that anyone can buy one without background checks or a waiting period. With quick shipping, just like an Amazon package, Throwflame has delivered thousands of X15s around the globe.
In late 2015, Democrat Congressman Eliot Engel introduced H.R.4009 to Congress in an attempt to regulate flamethrowers. This legislation would treat flamethrowers as machine guns.
“This bill is a solution in search of a problem that does not exist and Representative Engel appears completely unaware of the lawful uses of flamethrowers,” –Joshua Prince of Civil Rights Defense Firm, P.C.
Years after the original bill stalled out in Congress, Eliot Engel introduced a new, similar bill H.R.4901(2018). H.R.4901 has me a similar demise due to its unpopularity.
After several years of development, Throwflame has added more fuel to the fire with the XL18 Flamethrower. This flamethrower-on-steroids, shoots over 110 ft and eats up ½ gallon of fuel per second. It is the most powerful flamethrower ever available for purchase by the general public.
- The XL18 has 10x more firepower than the previous model, the X15
- Effective firing range of 110ft
- Napalm compatible
- ½ gallon per second firing rate
Originally, the XL18 was designed for an international client as a part of a government procurement round. The XL18 is currently being sold, both domestically and internationally, to government agencies and private individuals alike.
In 2019, Throwflame launched the TF-19 WASP, a state-of-the-art drone flamethrower attachment designed to bring remote ignition to new heights. By combining aerial capabilities with precise flame control, the TF-19 has the potential to transform a range of industries, including agriculture and forestry.
The TF-19 WASP is designed for remote ignition of both aerial and ground targets, delivering unprecedented efficiency and manageability. This cutting-edge tool offers a solution for modern-day challenges in agriculture, where it can be deployed for controlled burns and land management. This allows recreational and commercial users to remotely ignite aerial and ground targets from up to several miles away with a first-person view. Ideal for missions like clearing debris from power lines, pest management, nest elimination, forest fire containment through back-burns or pre-burns, and remote agriculture burns.
