I purchased this product a few weeks ago to use in my wood working shop that I have been building. I use to have a torpedo style propane heater and it worked very well. But I really like how much quieter this style is comparatively to the other. It does seem to use more propane though than the torpedo heater. It may just be because of the temperature outside, it has been in the low teens the past couple of weeks? Also the igniter doesn’t want to work as the temperatures fall closer to zero degrees. So bring some long matches? Other than that, I have no complaints, it does what it’s supposed to do.

Heater works great had my shop 72 degrees when it was 15 degrees outside! it does burn through a standard propane tank in about 8 hours on high, but that was in extreme cold!

After my 35 year old heater died, I went and purchased this one. I am very pleased with it. It is adequate to take the chill out of small work spaces. Don't expect to be in your skivvies when it's 25 degrees out and your trying to heat 2000 sq. ft.
It will keep you comfortable. If it's crazy cold out ( 0 degrees like it's been lately) Then don't expect to get to toasty and break a sweat. Running this unit on high, non-stop, will suck down a 20lb. tank in no time; it's meant to keep your work zone/area tolerable. It all depends on the area you want to heat ( smaller the better), the level of insulation in the structure and how cold it actually is both outdoors and in. I like this propane type heater over any kerosene type unit because I think there is much less odor and the fuel is easier to deal with.

Easy to assemble. The only cons are that it sucks gas and you need to keep your space well ventilated. Which helps to defeat the purpose in cold weather. Other than that it kicks heat out great. 1500 sq ft garage and it stays toasty.

I was using a forced air kerosene heater for about a year and it started having problems. 2nd one to do this. Wont stay running blah blah... Not to mention kerosene at $4 gallon. So my brother had one of these and he brought it out for the weekend. It heated my 800SF garage all weekend on a 20lb tank. It was in the 20's outside and a in the 70's inside. The noise compared too the forced air kerosene is minimal. We also live in a house with all electric heat. Now if the power goes out in the winter, I could take this inside and use as emergency heat without worrying about the fumes with our dogs. If you are looking to heat a garage or shed that you want to spend some hours in over the winter, this is the heater you want. Dont know how I ever did without one!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MJG412 Very good space heater (outdoor)
Used this heater on an outdoor patio/deck during a party. Worked very well to keep people warm outside. Seems like it would be a really good tailgating heater as well. Easy to assemble and operate. Quiet operation and no electricity necessary. I like that you can adjust the heat settings. Even on low this thing puts off the heat.

Great little heater, warms up my 2 car non insulated garage in no time. I would recommend purchasing a 100 lb propane cylinder. The smaller 20lb have a tendency to freeze up when the unit is run on high for long periods of time.
Sometimes the lighting mechanism can be a bit temperamental so I'd keep a set of long matches on hand.
Other than these two minor issues its a pretty good product for the money.
