Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DissatisfiedNWMT All-around VERY BAD PRODUCT Poor quality, poor value
I used it from New Years Day 2014 until spring, 15 - 20 hours total. Put away for the summer; out of the elements, not exposed to the sun. Yet, air hose & fuel hose INSIDE heater were dry-rotted when I tried to use it this winter.
Cannot get any help from the company for troubleshooting. Called the company & was left on hold indefinity.
The fuel filter won't stay tight; it isn't threaded.
I fixed the hoses. It ran 1/2 hour. Now it won't start.
The axle looks like it belongs on a larger piece of equipment.
The heater still looks brand new --but it will not work!
All around shoddy quality. Lousy customer service, too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by George Just what I needed - Works great
Unit was missing some hardware for the wheels. Factory sent the parts right out, no problem. Fuel consumption does not seem to be too bad. Fuel filler is in bad location. Buy a flexible funnel and a bungie cord to hold it in place while filling. problem solved.Pretty strong smells on first time use. After that the smell reduced significantly. I have a 40x50 shop with 16ft ceiling and it went from 40 deg. to about 60 in about an hour. Then thermostat kept temp so even I worked in just a tee shirt. Wheels allow me to move it out of the way on warm days. Glad I chose this model. Just the right size and works great.

I have had this heater for awhile now and it has worked flawlessly. Heat is instant and will heat a large area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer wont stay running
Brand new,Assembled easily. fan wont start on occaision which prevent startup. also when fan does start it will only run for a few minutes. as the motor will slow down then speed up a few times then unit just shuts down. motor/ pump sounds like something is rubbing as when it does run. I thought the fan was hitting something at first. but its not the fan, just sounds like it is. fan blade is pressed onto collar then collar has a set screw to stay on mtr shaft. After trying to get running for a few hours fan blade now slips on collar so it had to be spot welded to turn with collar. noise might be a bad pump, mtr is very hot after it shuts down...trouble shooting instructions didnt help

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by smokes Bought two of them, one didn't have all the pieces
I put these heaters to work the next day after i bought them. I opened one up to find out it didn't have all the pieces for the rear wheels. The other one had all the pieces, but the nuts didn't have vinyl threads and fell off after one days work. I had to purchase new nuts so i didn't have to continuously tighten the axle down after i rolled it around the job site. Otherwise, they work great when it comes to putting out the heat.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doge Did not work
Brand new out of the box and never worked. The fan came on and blew kerosene all over the place, but never ignited. I tried about 20 times, but it never worked. Took it back to Home Depot and went straight to Lowes. Bought a heater at Lowes and it worked the first time and has been a great heater.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lukehhhhhh Good heater, used at work
I am a helper at a tile company. I'm on the wet saw quite a lot which is cool, except for in the winter time. And then it's really cool. Used one all day for a couple days in a garage at a jobsite and it did the trick. No complaints at all. Kept me warm, kept my hands working, helped thaw out the saw in the morning and even kept helped dry out the towels (BONUS!).

Shipping was quick, but having trouble keeping it going. Called Mfg. and working thru issues. Now they say because we received faulty product WE have to PAY to have shipped back. Not Happy
