Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is an outstanding heater This heater is easy to start, easy to use and does an outstanding job of warming the intended area. We have an oversized 2-car garage and this heater raised the area from 40 degrees to 60 degrees in <10 minutes using the “high” setting. It runs quietly even on the highest setting and is NOT a gas hog. Highly recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this product. We have had five of these heaters and all of them have failed to work properly. They will not stay lit therefore they are useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the option of using battery or cord! I find the heater to do a great job pushing out heat and this allows me to do things in my well ventilated basement for hours. I did buy a two battery kit to go with this just so I could take advantage of the cordless feature! I would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it so far Got this to replace what I thought was a malfunctioning unit - Turns out I was just out of propane, but I like this one so much I decided to keep it and sell the old one or put it in reserve. Nice form factor, more compact than the average torpedo. Kicks out heat nice, adjustable level seems to have 3 levels found by trial and error, low medium and high. Easy start, just turn on the fuel and hit the on button, it automatically clicks the piezo ignition and all you have to do is hold button until the flame catches, usually a 5 second process. Hybrid feature is nice, less cords running around the better. Cannot comment on how long the battery lasts or the longevity of the unit itself as I just got it, but will update this rating if possible and necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Heater! Great heater! Fires right up every time. Pumps out a lot heat to warm the garage on those very cold days. The variable output is nice, but very touchy (not bad enough to take away a star). Very impressed with the hybrid feature, and comes in handy when there is no outlet around. Highly recommend!

Availability

Hello, I live in MN and was wondering if this item is still in your lineup? I see some reviews on Home Depot, but as of right now I can't find it anywhere. Just curious if it has been discontinued? Thanks!

How do I receive a new thermocouple?

The thermocouple in this model has failed. The gas will never stay on. Do I need to replace the thermocouple?

Asked by: Nolfer

What reputable vendor can I find this product for $129?

I tried Home Depot this product is unavailable for in store pick up, and it is not available online. I called the store and they told me they were not getting any in anytime soon, so for the time being it is unpurchasable through Home Depot anywhere in my area. The only online sites I could find it available through is Ebay and Amazon for $179 and $229 respectively excluding shipping and handling. Almost every tool I own is Ridgid so I really have my hopes set on this heater, thanks in advance.
