DR Power Equipment has introduced the BurnCage, a new home and garden incinerator that eliminates all the shortcomings of burning in a traditional burn barrel.
For years, homeowners have relied on backyard burning in steel barrels to eliminate items such as sensitive financial documents and yard debris. Although 55-gallon steel barrels may seem like safe receptacles to contain a fire, DR Power Equipment says they were designed for chemical and hazardous waste storage.
“Burn barrels are a nuisance to property owners,” said DR Power Equipment product manager Carl Eickenberg. “These barrels rust, are unpleasant to look at, and don’t provide a safe enclosure to contain flying embers. The new BurnCage is easy to use, much safer than a burn barrel, and has perforations for more thorough burning with easier cleanup. And it doesn’t rust and become an eyesore like an oil drum.”
Features of the BurnCage include:
- Can burn in excess of 1600° F
- Measures 35" x 20" x 20"
- Optional ash catcher for easy cleanup
- Collapsible design
