I have had this product for 7 years and it has performed unbelievable. I live in a remote section of mountains in Virgina and garbage is a big deal. I get nearly total reduction in refuse when I use as instructed. I have black bears in the area and they are attracted but the Burn Right Product has survived. The only problem is the bears keep taking the handles, so I keep a spare just in case.
I live in rural central Indiana and have many trees on my property that shed lots of limbs when the wind blows. I have burned a lot of wood and tons of trash in it. My eight year old burner has changed color, but not its shape. It is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.
The incinerator is a beautiful design and large enough to put a good amount of debris inside to burn. I rated it only 3 stars as the ash catcher is barely the size of the bottom with handle cutouts that expose whatever surface you set the incinerator on. If you set it on dry grass, you might have an issue. I just felt they cheaped-out on the ash catcher to save a few cents. My biggest issue is the shipping. When I spoke to the owner and asked if there was a coupon for free or a discount on the shipping, he said 'we never do that'. Well, to my disappointment, a couple weeks later, I happened to go to the Burnright website and guess what I saw? You guessed it, a coupon for free shipping. I called to speak with customer service and they weren't very friendly or accommodating, so my advice is, if you need a burn bin, this company makes a nice one, but forget about their honesty and any customer service you might need in the future.
My husband thought I was crazy for spending so much on a burn barrel. He now loves this barrel! We were tired of the old 55 gallon drums rusting out and then having to find somewhere to dispose of them. This barrel even looks good after continuous use. We save our personal documents and all our cardboard until we have a huge pile to burn. Our only complaint is everything burns so fast we are done in barely enough time to finish beer. Make sure you are well away from any overhanging branches as the flame can get quite high.
What a fantastic, friendly company! We got a phone call within a short time of ordering our incinerator checking on our shipping address. The gentleman was beyond friendly and even refunded a portion of the sale when he found out my husband had been in the military. The incinerator arrived quickly, was easy to assemble and was put to use the following day. And boy, does it work! Hubby couldn't be more pleased to have a way to burn yard waste in a contained manner. Nothing left but a few ashes at the bottom. Wonderful product!
I just purchased the Burn Right Incinerator. It took me about 45 minutes to assemble. I used a Milwaukee 18V drill and socket drive to assemble. The stainless screws went it fairly easy and I had no issues. There were 24 extra screws when I was done assembling the unit. I've done about 8 burns so far and it exceeded my expectations of the complete job it does burning all the wood. I have even loaded it with some wet wood and not a single issue. It usually takes about an hour to burn from the top down and there is very little ash left on the bottom plate. I read the reviews and everyone says it is awesome and I must agree. I'm expecting it to last a long time. You get what you pay for and I'm extremely pleased with this purchase. As a side note I sent an email into the office of Burn Right and I got an immediate return phone call. How is that for customer service? Thanks.
I have been using steel drums with holes drilled for air, the down side is they rust, very heavy, have to drill or shoot holes into it and are not very efficient. The burnright is light, holes many holes for air, don’t rust, comes apart for storage, and is very efficient. I have used it for pine branches from four trees that had to be taken down and it burned very hot but did not warp and was left with ash that I mixed in the compost. Time, you need time for the burn so you could keep loading and reloading. More than one would be more effective faster to reduce the debris in a more reasonable amount of time. Works well I would recommend!Thank you!
Excellent burner! This item lives up to its claim. The perforated drum allows for safe and efficient burning of leaves, papers and light cardboard. Have had ours for 8 plus years and has shown little wear. We highly recommend this item if you need an outside burner.
Worth every penny! We have had our incinerator barrel for about 12 years and use it multiple times a week for all of the online shopping boxes and everything else burnable. This cuts our family of 5 trash down to a bag a week. May seem expensive, but you get what you pay for.
This works much better than my stone fire pit. I was having trouble getting a clean burn on dense pack materials like leaves/grass clippings due to poor airflow. This incinerator works much better. I got a clean and total burn. The flames were well contained and there were no embers escaping. I feel much safer burning brush using this product. As a bonus, the construction seems like it'll last quite a while.
I thought I’d take a minute to commend youfor your terrific product. I have a second home in rural north central PA, where operating a burn barrel is a simply a necessity. I was fed up with the regular chore of transporting the wet partially burned ash in rusting drums that usually collapsed in a heap when they were lifted or moved. A friend suggested Burn Right. I’ve been using mine now for 4 years to burn all of my paper and wood products. It’s simply incredible! There’s almost no ash. Fires start much easier and, best of all, the incinerator remains solid as a rock and in excellent condition. At this rate, it’ll be the last such product I’ll ever need. Thanks!
I have had one of these since 2007. It is fantastic! The stainless steel does not corrode and the product is very durable. I had a burn barrels before and there was never a good way to clean it out. The Burn Right product cleans up in minutes and it's ready to go again. Buy one, you won't regret it.
I bought a prototype in 2000. We moved to MN that same year. Out on the farm we have used it every day during that time. Nothing lasts forever. Any deals for the owner of the longest-lasting unit?
Outstanding communication and their large incinerator works better than I would have ever thought. No more stirring like on my old 55 gal drum.
Qualityqualityquality ! Shipped quickly as promised, and this work of art burns as promised. Who knew all that ventilation turns my yard waste into dust-nothing left whatsoever.
I'm 73 years old and formerly used many 55 gallon oil drums with holes burned into the sides of the barrel with an oxygen/acetylene gas cutting torch to allow for air flow to the fire. The fire then in these barrels still did not have enough air flow for good combustion leaving copious amounts of ash, some only partially burned. The design of the Burn Right incinerator allowing for good air flow on all sides, top, and especially bottom takes care of that problem. Material burns much better leaving far less ash to contend with and better burnt material!
After several months of use, this is the best thing going for burning leaves!Just a couple of inches of ash after a full burn....amazing!The flow through ventilation keeps the fire really flaming reducing smoke to virtually none.The food grade stainless steel construction is very sturdy and useful to cook on too!
We love our home incinerator. It burns so fast and completely we can finish yard clean up in a fraction of the time. Thanks Burn Right!
Great ProductWe live on Cape Cod and smoke generation while burning was of a major concern. Once the barrel get rolling very little smoke is generated, as advertised. It's amazing how wood the barrel goes through in a day. We are clearing 1 acre of downed tress and brush and its what is needed to get rid of the wood. At the end of the day all the wood is reduced to a small pile of ashes, combustion is complete. We can often start the fire the next day just using the hot ashes that remain. Made a mistake of keeping the bottom cross bars in while burning logs. The intense heat and weight of logs caused the bars to crack and break but the customer service is fantastic. Sent an email about it and some other questions on a Sunday morning not expecting an answer till Monday or so. Ron called back in about 30 minutes, answered all the questions and sent replacement bars free of charge.Highly recommend it.
Hands down #1 best burn cage incinerator. Burn Right products has truly the best design and quality. Other burncage incinerators would rust and warp but the burn Right products incinerator doesn't do neither. Their incinerator is designed to prevent any toxic fumes from getting in the air. It's the cleanest burn cage incinerator on the market. They truly care about our health and environment. Burn Right products is also pro-military and they did a awesome job in providing me a discount because of my military service. Thank you for being Pro-American.
This is an awesome product and great for burning safely in the back yard! It also blends well in the environment.
Expensive barrel but it is fun to watch the garbage burn so fast because it’s getting so much oxygen. Just a small pile of ash when done in a few minutes. Excellent product.
We have been using our incinerator for about 10 years, it's very efficient and safe and it's an indispensable tool for anyone with a large property
We were informed recently that we could not get trash pickup and decided to research incinerators and found what we will call a god send for solving our disposal issue. It is amazing the amount of waste we burned in just two hours and felt safe doing it. Thank you.
Works great as a fire pit and also incinerator. We've loaned ours out to our accountant who uses it to burn dated private tax information. What a great product...we've had ours for 5 years with no problems.
The county I live in doesn't allow burn barrels but having pine needles that blanket the ground after every storm is endless. I burn a full barrel every 30 to 40 minutes without much smoke if the needles ignite from the top. If the pile starts from the previous fires ash I get more smoke until the needles get going. Our barrel is 3 years old and discolored. I bring the barrel in at night so it doesn't disappear. This purchase is the best way to get rid of the endless needle fallout. I see my neighbors burn piles on the ground that smoke out the neighborhood but not me. I highly recommend purchasing the largest you can afford, it ends the worry of catching the forest on fire.
Awesome incenerator, works very well for all of my needs like bank statements, credit card or junk mail. This incenerator is great for brush burning, we have a lot of trees so leaves and limbs add up no more.
