sprayer does not work after a couple of sprays.
I have been using this for sometime but I always buy 2 or 3 bottles so that when the sprayer stops working I have another spray nozzle to work, hopefully. I also find you can never use everything in the bottle so I have to pour the remaining solution into another half filled bottle. I find the weed killer does work most of the time but my BIG complaint is with the sprayer nozzle!

Concentrate works brilliantly for 12 months on my pavers
My experience is the same as that of AJT for the Concentrate (not the weaker premixed ready to use version). My 70 sq metres of pavers are weed free for about 12 months after using this. Note that rain must be avoided for 24 hours after application. I have used this for several years with the same good results. The pavers have a white powdery coating for a while but it's not really a big deal and it always disappears eventually. I bought another 2 bottles yesterday and my job for today is to sweep the pavers to remove dead leaves and dirt, dilu...te the concentrate in a bucket of water as per the label instructions then use a soft broom or mop to dip into the bucket and sweep over all the pavers with special focus on cracks between pavers. One diluted bottle covers 40 sq metres. Since it's possibly carcinogenic, it's important not to swallow any of the milky liquid (but why would you?) and to use the broom or mop only for this purpose. Don't spread it too thinly - if you dilute a bottle, make sure you don't spread it over more than 40 sq metres (eg, 8 metres x 5 metres). And keep it off any plants that you don't want to kill.

Sprayed weeds coming out of cracks in footpaths and driveway. Weeds were left with a white residue on them, they didn’t even get poorly, no effect whatsoever. This product is useless.

Zero stars nothing but soap water
It doesn't work. Only leaves white stained leaves. Looks like soap water. Would not recommend this to anyone. Even tried spraying excessive amounts, the week wrinkles after a couple of days but then survives and recovers.
Leaves white stains and does not kill weeds
I agree with other reviews: it just leaves white stains (which won't go away with just soap and water. I had to use methylated spirits) and the weeds were still very much alive. Also, the spray mechanism stopped working after about 10-15 sprays, which was frustrating on the moment but a blessing in disguise as I couldn't use it much and has very little of the white stains to clean. A total waste of money. Don't buy it.

Does not work
Had bought this make before in a grey bottle, it worked as described. Could not see that again but they had this and expected the same results. This is a waste of money, spray it on, it dries with a white stain and does nothing to kill weeds. Not sure if it was a bad batch or too weak to work. Will not buy again.

Concentrate works for over 6 months on brick paving...zero weeds.
I haven’t used the pre-mix, this is a review for the concentrate. Follow instructions carefully and it works really well. It took 2 weeks to kill all the weeds on my brickwork driveway, paths and terrace, but once they had gone, they didn’t come back for at least 6 months and it wasn’t really noticeable for about 8 months. The white residue that’s left behind helps you see where you’ve sprayed and disappears after a week or two. It’s also good value (per litre) if you have a large area to spray. Wouldn’t use anything else and I am obsessive about weeds between the bricks, they drive me mad, so this product has been a god send!

Works but has faults
The product works well majority of the time, the down side is the stain it leaves on the concrete, on the fence, or the house, basically anything.
And heaven forbid you get it on the grass, seems to discolor and kill the grass better than weeds.
Find it discolors thistles but does not kill them.

Happy with this product.
I have used this product for years. I have used both the ready mix and the concentrate and I have been more than happy with it. I use it to do my paddock fence lines. I find it works well. I sometimes find it hard to find the concentrate in Bunnings. That's disappointing as I used to use a lot of the product.

This seemed more like a fertiliser for my driveway weeds. I’ve also left an online message, hoping someone will follow up. I applied it twice to the same area a month apart and according to the instructions. No effect. I wish I’d checked here before buying but didn’t think to.
March 2nd 2019 Update: Follow up
Following up, I did get a response to my online query. They replaced my 1L of thoroughly ineffective concentrate with 2 little spray bottles of pre-mix. I sprayed a few weeds that had come up since the last roundup application to spot test it, and again, no effect.

Using glyphosate on paths is a waste of time. It only kills growing weeds, it does nothing about the seeds sitting in the cracks waiting to germinate. This product on the other hand not only kills active growing weeds but it also prevents weed seeds from germinating and gaining a foothold and lasts for at least six months, whereas if you rely on glyphosate alone you'll be having to spray again every 3 weeks or so.
This works just as well as a similarly named product for a lot less money. You do have to follow the instructions closely though ...because there are a few steps if not done will mean it will be a lot less effective. Another thing should be mentioned, it will take longer to kill actively growing weeds than glyphosate but once you see them starting to show effects, you know they're history.
I would give this product ZERO stars if I could
This product DOES NOT WORK! I have repeatedly sprayed and sprayed weeds and even grass and all it does is turn them a little bit yellow but the weeds and grass are still alive and well! It should be called 'weed lover' not killer! Don't waste your money buy some ZERO instead.
Brunning's path weeder is an excellent product. I use it around my garden edges and farm fencing. After a week or so, weeds completely dead. I always shake product well before mixing with water. I have bought other similar products , that are slightly more expensive, and brunnings path weeder works quicker than them.
This Rubbish and a complete waste of money
I followed the instructions and was left with a white stain on the pavers and no discernible effect on the weeds. The ineffectiveness of the product is disappointing but the fact that it may stain paths, pavers etc is strange given this is called Path Weeder. I acknowledge this is stated in the instructions but to be frank who reads through the lengthy product information. My expectation was to purchase something called Path Weeder that would kill weeds and not affect the path. Clearly I was wrong.
the worse product.
I actually sprayed this product twice in the same area. After more than 2 weeks nothing changed to the weeds & grass in the area that I sprayed. I read & followed the instructions carefully (shake well before use and mix 500ml with 9 L of water) and spraying water after 5 days of use. But so far 'No results' at all. Very disappointed. A complete waste of time & money!!!
Questions & Answers
I have recently purchased the path weeder. The spray liquid comes out a thick white substance which looks dreadful on the pathway and in the garden. Is it supposed to be like that, and will it wash away. Have yet to see if it is effective.
