Neat portable self contained DIESEL HEATER


 

This is something new (to me) that could be better generally than a plumbed-in unit.

There are smaller models also. This one adjustable 2.5 to 8 Kw.

 

Winter is coming - wish I had one - be great for when I'm working in the shed.

There's heaps of them on e-bay from $150 inc freight right up.

They are pretty good value, a friend has one, not exactly like this one, and he like me is a cold weather camper, uses it in his four man tent, and it works really well. Too well, at times, as it gets pretty hot in there on low. I am interested in one for my campertrailer as well.

 Not to be used inside a van I would think. Would be good if could!

So instead of making one hole in the floor or wall to mount the heater and allow the combustion intake and exhaust to both be outside you are going to leave a door or window open to allow the hot air plumbing to pass through?
They never ever should be inside an enclosed space and the air to be heated should be totally seperated from the combustion side to avoid them mixing.
Death is permanent! Killing off brain cells whilst trying to keep warm isn't good either.

 From my abbreviated reading of the blurb they come with an exhaust hose for

exit of exhaust fumes. A simple flap over a hole in the floor or side would provide the

exit for the exhaust. Bit of brain/handyman required.

not so different to the plumbed-in variety.

 

Wonderful for the annexe!

 

There's some really small ones too.

Brodie, that looks a great set up, a completely portable diesel air-heater. What I don't like about it compared to my plumbed-in one in my motorhome is that on a cold morning, in my motorhome, I lean out of my bed and press the start button. With the portable one, I'm going to have to get up, maybe even get dressed, to get it going.
Cheers,
Roy

My brother in law has this exact unit for his shed. Sets it up near the door, opens the door just wide enough to have the exhaust pipe and muffler outside. He has a quite large shed as he is an aircraft engineer and often has light aircraft in the shed being repaired. This little unit heats the shed nicely. Planning to get one for my shed this winter.
