    The Dyna-Glo pro heater can be powered by a variety of fuels too, such as Kerosene, JP8/Jet A Fuel (Cool!), #1 & #2 Fuel Oil, and #1 and #2 Diesel.

    Diesel, those things really put out some heat... Back in my younger days I worked for an outfit that 'dyed wood shavings'. We would dip them in the dye, dump them in a bin and when the bins got full enough, we took them to the drying rooms.

    The drying rooms had three long raised rows with window screen (metal) mesh. We would spread out the wet shavings on top of these rows. Under each row was one of these forced air heaters, and it really got the job done by drying them in a few hours. Nice in winter but a B%*#H in the summer;)

    These things make empty spaces warm. Have also been around these on new construction in commercial buildings. It may not warm a 10,000 sq. ft building but a couple take the edge off if it is really frigid outside. Would work really well for a house if you could circulate the warm air throughout. Would want a CO2 monitor as well;)

    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
    beat you to death with it because it is empty.

      I use one to heat my shop with and to pre warm my 1977 diesel farm tractor in the winter. ( like yesterday - 30 with wind chill ) The only problem is that style of heater needs 110 to run the blower and fuel pump and with no electricity no heat. But multi fuel is great becuase when SHTF you can scroung from many places. Like my old diesel farm tractor made in Romania becuase it will run on diesel , home heating oil, kerosene and bio fuel.

        this one may be a bit more unqiue than the ones you are used to?

        It works on the principals ofr a jet engine and vaporizes any fuel you in it, it puts out a turbine/jet type heat wave...

        But maybe that's what all of the portable tube heaters like that do?

          Depending on the blower motor amperage you could size this up to the proper inverter/battery bank/ solar panels and have a pretty cool hybrid system...

          Would need a nameplate rating on the electric motor to calculate :D
