The ash catcher I received 1st. and just had to wait for the rest of the burner. Once it got here I soon had it on it's slab in the back yard. Ya know I had to try it out. In doing so, I soon found that it's better than advertised. And I'll never have to buy another one. I couldn't be more happier with it. Thank you. Marvin M. Roberts

Best stand alone burner
Posted by: MARCIA C.Clupper from SOUTH WHITLEY, IN on 04/26/2017
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I finally got my burner set up in the backyard. I am very happy with the burning results. Now I don't have to worry about sparks drifting out to the farmer's field in back of my property. When the crops are ready to be harvested and are dry...sparks could set the whole field on fire, causing their own sparks which could burn all of our houses.

Before i purchased this i really didn't give it too much thought...after a fire is burned and ashes are generated you would have to lift the unit off of the catcher and then dispose of the ashes...don't see the utility so i probably wont use it...my fault since i really didn't think the process through

Ash Catcher?
Posted by: David F. from CODY, WY on 12/26/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
We purchased this along with our BurnCage XL. Not so much to catch ashes but to have a flat, none burnable platform to set the burncage on. There is so little ash left when we are done burning that while we would recommend the "ash catcher" we are not sure that the name given best describes our use for it.

Q.Does the wind every blow it over? What is the life exspetency? How much does it weigh? Can I "stake " in the base, to prevent knock over?
A.The DR Burn Cage will blow over in high winds so we do recommend a couple of "stake's" to hold it in place, but we do not recommend having a fire on windy day's. The 16 guage "439" stainless steel is rated for 1,600 degrees and can withstand up to 2,000 degrees. The unboxed dimensions are 20" x 20" w x 35" h and weighs 52 lbs.

Q.Does a lid handle come with the unit?
I saw a handle for the lid in photos. Should it be removed when burning. I would assume that it has hooks that go into the slots to remove it from the lid. Is the handle safe to use if burning is active. If I want to add more material to the fire should I let it burn out before removing the lid.
A.Yes, the handle for the DR Burn Cage Lid is removable, and is safe to use when burning so you can add more material as needed. Please contact us if you have additional question's.

Q.Can I use it to burn logs and branches?
I realize that I would have to cut up logs, etc to fit,but would it be effective for burning larger circumference debris from fallen trees? We have 10 acres and live on a windy mountain, I have a perpetual burnpile in my drainfield that I have to watch over with a hose when I do burns, and then due to the winds, my burn days are few and far between. It is surrounded by woods. It would be nice to have the pile contained, even if I were having to burn more frequently, as of now, the pile is huge, takes all day to burn and still leaves tons of chunky debris. I have never used a burn barrel, so I don't know how well actual logs and cut up branches would do as opposed to the pine needles, grass clippings and paper debris that most of the reviewers said they were burning.
A.The Burn Cage holds eleven hundred cubic inches and measures 35" x 20" x 20". It is constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel that can withstand temperatures in excess of 2000? F. The preforated side panels allow for maximum airflow and higher burn temperatures which translates into a cleaner, more efficient fire. You can burn any non-toxic backyard debris that is safe to burn in the Burn Cage. You will want to limit the quantity of tree limbs and twigs that you put on the fire at one time. As the material is consumed, you can then add small additional materials that keep the flame lengths short and reduce any chance of sparks carrying off-site. You still want to check if a burning permit for your area is required, check weather conditions, follow any burn regulations, always choose and prepare an appropriate burn site, clear the ground and have safety equipment on hand (hose, fire extinguisher, shovel, etc.) If you have more questions or would like to place a phone order, please give our Sales Team a call at Toll Free 1-888-550-0062, Monday thru Friday, 8 am to 7 pm, Saturday, 8:30 am to 5 pm and Sunday, 9 am to 5:30 pm, Eastern Time.

Q.Do you have any feedback regarding the DR Lid warpage and/or misfit problems?
This burn-cage sounds terrific; but, like most new products,it obviously has some developmental problems? Do you have any design adjustments/changes to address your customer reported difficulties with the cage lid warpage and/or misfit? It would seem the # of inquiries indicate more than a "user" installation problem! I am interested in purchasing this Product but want to be one of your "satisfied" customers ..... hopefully, a design or process change is in-work!
A.Yes, the lid does warp slightly but not enough to cause any functional problem. The lid still sits on top of the burn cage.

Q.I will be using to primary burn pine needles and branches. Will it be effective for pine needles
A.The Burn Cage is a safe and efficient way to burn certain debris, but pine needles need to be on the dry side to ensure it flames quickly and efficiently. They should never be allowed to smolder or generate excessive smoke. You will want to contact your local authorities to check if burning pine needles is permitted. Most cities and towns have a pre-approved burn list to avoid buring prohibitive debris.

Q.I have be using barrels for the last 15 years. A barrel will last almost two years. For me to consider the Burn Cage it will have to last a good seven years. What is the average life span of the cage?
A.There are many variables as to how long the Burn Cage will last. It is constructed of rugged 16 gauge "439" stainless steel (.0625" thick) which resists rust and corrosion.

Type "439" stainless steel has superior formality capabilities and is used in the automobile industry. It is often used in place of "409" stainless steel where higher thermal conductivity is required.

Not only does the Burn Cage hold more than a 55 gallon drum, but it is rated for 1600 degrees which will help with less residue and fewer ashes. It will also thoroughly incinerate leaves, branches and permanently eliminate confidential and classified documents in a safe, efficient way.

Q.We live on a wooded acreage. Would we be wise to set the cage on blocks before burning? How much clearance would we need for burning?
A.You will want to check with your local authorities before you begin to use the Burn Cage to find out if there are any special burning requirements, as laws for outside burning vary from state to state. It is always recommended to clear an area around the Burn Cage down to bare soil or gravel. There is an optional ash catcher that can be installed at the bottom of the Cage if the surface is concrete or dirt, it reduces the chance of leaving a scorched mark. Thanks for your inquiry.

There is an optional ash catcher that can be installed at the bottom of the Cage if the surface is concrete or dirt, it reduces the chance of leaving a scorched mark. Thanks for your inquiry.

Q.How well does the burn cage do with leaves? Is it an efficient way to dispose of a yard full of leaves.
A.The Burn Cage holds eleven hundred cubic inches and measures 35" x 20" x 20". It is constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel that can withstand temperatures in excess of 2000? F. The perforated side panels allow for maximum airflow and higher burn temperatures which translates into a cleaner, more efficient fire. You can burn any non-toxic backyard debris that is safe to burn in the Burn Cage. As the material is consumed, you can then add small additional materials that keep the flame lengths short and reduce any chance of sparks carrying off-site. You still want to check if a burning permit for your area is required, check weather conditions, follow any burn regulations, always choose and prepare an appropriate burn site, clear the ground and have safety equipment on hand (hose, fire extinguisher, shovel, etc.)

Q.How is this collapsible when the foot panels are attached? The videos don’t show the foot panels attached. I would hate to think that you would have to remove them first.
