Purchased this heater to keep me warm while working on job sites outside in mornings here in AZ in Dec & Jan when temps are in 40's and 50's. I put it about 8 feet from where I am working and it throws out enough heat to keep my warm enough to work comfortably. I use it on lowest setting and have to turn it off when temps start rising as it does get warm. I am sure if used in an enclosed space, this heater would raise temps extremely quickly as even outside in open it works great. Due to the forced air fan it is loud and does require electricity, but small price to pay. It's very lightweight and easy to move.
The one quality issue is the use of plastic for the nipple that the propane hose threads on to. I guarantee if you are not mindful with that area, the nipple will break off. It's a poor cheap choice and the one thing that stands out as a warning area.
I believe it's rated for 12-14 hrs on a 20lb cylinder on low.
Great value that could have been excellent if the manufacturer just changed to a metal hose nipple.

This is a very nice heater. I also purchased the FA60DGD. Almost identical. I do have one suggestion for everyone. If you are using a 20 lb propane tank DO NOT take it to a place that exchanges tanks. They only fill up to 16 lbs of propane which will limit the hours of operation per tank Take your tanks to a service station or filling station that will actually fill the tank with 20lbs of propane. It is the same price so why not get the most heating hours for your money'

This is the second propane heaters by Dyna-Glo that I have had. The last one I had lasted for 3 years and was used almost everyday during the colder months in the mid-west. I used this propane heater to heat a 36'x18' detached building/garage that I own. I probably get anywhere from 12 to 16 hours out of a 20 lb. propane tank depending on how cold it is out and if I turn it up on high. The only con I would have is that ignitor stays clicking when the heater is running.

BOUGHT THIS TO HEAT A 380 SQ FT GARAGE THROUGH A CHICAGO WINTER. HEATS THE AREA UP IN ABOUT 10 MINS, AND IN 20 MINS YOU CAN WORK WITHOUT A COAT ON. ITS A LITTLE LOUD, BUT ITS A SHOP SO I DONT CARE AS LONG AS I AM WARM. BASICALLY FOR $100.00 YOU CANT GO WRONG.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Randy don't buy these heaters
I Bought 5 of these heaters to help heat my work area on 11/17/2014 and by 12/24/2014 2 of them no longer work. they will not stay on. They light ok but as soon as you let go of the knob they go out, I would not recommend these heaters to anyone, I cannot even exchange them at Home Depot because they do not have them in stock and the only repair center for my area does not answer the phone and it clear on the other side of the city. Not happy at all with this purchase.

the heater is ok..........here is why............notice how they hide the elec plug on the box.........well because most buyers think (or hope) that its a simple plug and play heater and its really not......you gotta run an extension cord to it......and that's an additional pain................not a big deal ..just clearly advertise that on the box , so its obvious
next , I think the fan needs to be variable speed along with the selected heat output......because on lower settings you can feel the cold air blowing along with the heat....which makes it feel not as hot....so you have to run it on full blast to get the most out of the "feeling of heat" and on high it runs threw propane like crazy
maybe this cant be done for 100 bucks but I think the fan needs to be dialed back a bit.....would be nice if it could run without e-cord but maybe not possible or practical for 100dollar price point
it is a decent tool , its just not as good as I hoped..............you cant take it back to store if you don't like it.....just if it doesn't work

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron17 Read the manual...it works as intended, and well at that!!!
I needed a way to take the chill out of my 2 car garage in the winter. This heater did exactly that and then some. Some users complain about the constant clicking sound the ignition makes, but you only hear the clicking while the unit is not lit. Once lit, you won't hear the clicking sound b/c it's drowned out by the roar of the fire, which is expected for any forced air heater. Further, if the ignition source didn't keep sparking the way it does the blower fan would just blow the flame out. The design is simple, a plus for those who are accident prone. I would recommend this product to anyone who needed a decent workspace heater for a 2-3 car garage and needed a high "bang" vs "buck" ratio. Again, read the manual; a tool that is not fully understood is only half of its value.
