That is what I have too...Here is the model I bought... I had a used one and told them the gas regulator was messed up and ask them how to repair or replace it and the guy sent me a brand new heater in the box for free..Excellent customer service....Highly recommended!

No pics but I have two standard directional kerosene heaters and a propane fired torpedo heater. I really need to insulate the garage this summer. Running all of them gets expensive fast!

i've got an old propane fired burner that was made into a garage heater, don't use it much anymore but it works really well. it's basically an open flame on a stand, with a big galvanized heat sheild aroun it, looks sorta like a small 55 gallon drum that's got roughly 6-8" cut out at the top and stands on legs about 8-10" off the ground

especially in a one car garage that's insulated fairly well, lol. my dad used to rent an old horse stable / shop that was roughly 3 cars big with storage areas on all sides, that's where that heater got the most use.

Default Re: Let's See Your Garage Heaters

The front half of our garage is more of a storage bit(we keep the table saw, band saw, welder, air-compressor etc etc(all on wheels/carts)) up there. We have 2 of these guys in our garage, one at the back door and one somewhere in the middle. Turn them on for half an hour before you go out and work on something and its good enough to be in a hoody lol.


I guess our garage is clean enough now, I can post a picture of it. I'll grab one next time. I have before and after shots..I have spent close to 2 weeks, every afternoon, cleaning it. Shes ALMOST sparkling now.

A friend of mine has a 4 door garage with one of those heaters and it would heat it up with no problem...
