“Shipped quick and received quickly. Hooked up and tested. Took a few minutes for gas to get to pilot, but when it did, it lit and worked good. Still too warm to use much, but it appears to be great and just what we needed.”

From the Manufacturer
With its newly integrated hot air blowing system, the Big Buddy Heater now takes portable heating to a new level. Ideal for use indoors, the safe Portable Buddy Heater features an automatic low-oxygen shut-off system that automatically turns the unit off before carbon monoxide fumes reach dangerous levels in your tent, camper, or garage. This portable wonder blasts out 18,000 BTUs, and can heat up to 400 square feet of space for up to 220 hours on one tank with the thermostat on low. A blower fan can be powered by 4 size D batteries or an A/C Adaptor. And, multi-position heat settings keep the room at just the right temperature so you're never alternating between too hot, and too cold.

5Great heater when simple precautions followed.
By Christopher S. Mooney
I was concerned when I purchased this unit. There are a number of highly negative reviews on it. However, on further research, I have discovered that the circumstances leading to those reviews could have been avoided.
When one uses this heater with a 20 lb propane bottle & accessory hose, it is imperative that you always shut the tank off first & let the heater run until it burns off all the fuel in the lines.
*** IT IS IMPERATIVE TO FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE ***
If one simply turns the heater knob to the off position, it will trap trap 100 PSI of propane in the accessory hose. When high pressure propane sits in the rubber hose, it will chemically react with the rubber and leetch a light oil. The oil will build up and quickly work its way into the heater, clogging both the regulator & control valve.
Another very important recommendation is to purchase the gas line filter. This will catch the oily residue and protect the combustion components of the heater should one forget to follow the precautions above.
Keeping these precautions in mind, one will be able to enjoy a very well-build and flexible-use portable heater.
Big Buddy Heater a big performer
Out of the box the Mr Heater MH188 makes a good first impression. The unit is compact, lightweight and very good looking in overall design. The front safety cage is quality high gauge metal that is securely fastened to the main unit. Initial impression is one of a well constructed piece of equipment.
Setup was simple enough. I used the optional Mr. Heater Hose with Regulator and Quick Disconnect for Big Buddy Heater #F271803 attached to a 7 gal propane tank.
Start up was quick, and when set on high the unit heated the cabin in under 20 minutes. I was then able to set it on low to maintain a comfortable temperature range.
The heater has a fan which requires 4 D cell batteries or the optional Mr. Heater Optional 6Volt Power Adapter for Big Buddy Heater #F276127
All in all a great unit for the price.
