I bought with the gas bottle hose connector to use with 2kg lpg bottles.
I love how easy it is to use and how effective it is. Lasts well, I guess about 12 hours or so on low heat on a 2 kg bottle. A great cosy, portable solution. Recommended..
Great prompt delivery, haven't tried it as yet
Yet to use the heater on the road but our practice seemed easy and effective. The service from Snowys was fantastic, prompt and efficient. Thanks.
This is an awesome bit of kit. Easy to use and works a treat!
It puts out a lot of heat for it's size and is very well made. Very quick delivery from Snowys.
Does exactly what it says. Definately hook it up to a larger gas cylinder. Only need a hose it has its own regulator inside the unit. The heat output it fantastic.
Great Heater, it certainly pumps out the heat for a small unit, downside you'll go through plenty of disposable propane cans. Unless you buy a hose to use with a bigger gas cylinder.. Would recommend to others...
Great heater and I refill it from my gas bottles on the caravan fantastic
Thanks Snowys you were the cheapest and couldn't believe we received our order within 4 Days and we live in the Far South of Tasmania. Will be recommending you to all our friends and I will be shopping with you first for any camp equipment from now on. The Heater is Fantastic no more cold nights for us when we are out camping. Easy to use and toasty warm. Love the Safety Features. We have hooked up to LPG and is great.
Snowys was the best price I found anywhere for the Mr Heater Buddy and it even arrived in record time before the Easter break rush. It heated our poptop van perfectly on the two-degree morning and cold evenings. Even had to turn it off and on again because it got too hot, but then our van is small so it didn't take much to heat it up. I also loved the fact that it didn't take too much of a bump for the auto shut-off to kick in, which made me confidence about in having it inside our van.
Hi, I am thinking about using a 20lb LPG bottle to connect to this heater but not sure what type of hose to use.
Do you need a regulator if you intend to use a 9kg POL bottle?
All you'll need is a Cylinder Hose Kit with a POL fitting like this one from Primus to use the Mr Heater Portable Buddy Heater with a 9kg gas bottle.
Am looking for something small, not too expensive, not heavy and to which I can easily attach gas or battery to. I would not keep it on once I go to bed. Thanks
I'm looking for something to heat an art studio space approx. 6m X 10 m with high ceilings. Would this be considered an 'enclosed pace'?
G'day Bev - I really can't be prescriptive on things like this. We have to and ought to give you the relevant information and it's up to you what you do with is. These heaters are marked as 'outdoors only' and that's because they can produce carbon monoxide. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but we have to cover our backsides. Cheers, Paul
Can we purchase a 3m bayonet fitting/hose to connect this to our caravan cylinders
Is it safe to use in a caravan with windows slightly open for ventilation?
It takes a long time to get the pilot flame lit on my heater, is this normal?
Just wondering if I can use this inside a tent, with little air flow?
We use ours to warm the tent up on freezing nights,before we go to bed,but you should leave a couple of windows open slightly. Never go to sleep with any fuel burning device in an enclosed space. Ever!
