Default Why modify a Blichman floor burner?

I have been doing some reading on larger burner sizes and one of the comments about the Blichman floor burner has me wondering why it would be an advantage to modify this burner from high pressure LP to low pressure LP. The comment is in the link below. Can anyone think of why this might give better performance on this unit?

Get rid of the high pressure regulator and gas jet. Replace it with a low pressure regulator and orifice from a Hurricane burner. You'll get easier lighting, much better heat output, great flame control and far less gas use all at the same time. NB used to sell Hurricane burners and should at least carry the regulator/hose/orifice parts to do this upgrade. Added to the Blichmann stainless steel beauty of a frame (same banjo burner as Hurricane) you have a really fine piece of equipment.

Thanks.

Unless automation is involved, I don't think that advice has any merit at all...

Cheers!
