Original owner. Purchased new April 2021 and gently used for two season. It had less than 30 hours of total non-continuous usage. This heater has a custom setup where it sits atop a fuel tank on a rolling base with locking casters for convenience and mobility. The idea was to be as compact as possible and minimize its total footprint in a situation where floorspace was limited. I used a remote-controlled wireless power-switch that allowed me to quickly shut it off, as well as power it on, without having to press the onboard button once the desired ambient temperature has been reached. I also neatly removed all the unnecessary decals for a more clean and discreet appearance.

I've owned several similar-sized heaters in the past that were within a comparable BTU rating range and this one was by far my most favorite design because of its versatility and closeness to the silence of a radiant heater, while being dramatically more effective at quickly heating up an area, as well as being the most efficient at electrical consumption without sacrificing any heating performance (this is required to power the fan to force the air to flow, which only draws around 15 watts after testing with a power meter IIRC). This means that it could be powered by an inverter battery with a modest capacity for a prolonged period of time, making it ideal for many outdoor and indoor scenarios that either lack a plugin power source or has one that's inconsistent and unreliable (such as in barns, construction sites, camping, off-grid, etc).

Sale includes everything shown. Comes with: a brass adapter for smaller canister bottles, which are useful for limited run times (1lb or less); an infinitely adjustable BTU hose/regulator combo with a 5-psi max heat output, making it an excellent upgrade to be able to adjust the heat intensity of the flame (the inferior quality stock regulator it came with was fixed at 5-psi, which was overkill for my needs); two identical refillable tank cylinders that have an integrated fuel gauge to swap out with one another when fuel runs out (both purchased from U-Haul around the same time as the heater and together had about a dozen refills in total); a set screw to lock the tank in place on the bottom of the steel base (I've never found it necessary to use this since I didn't have an issue with excessive rotation of the tank on the base); the photos of the box and original manual will be emailed to the new owner (as well as a digital version of the manual that was downloaded from the internet soon after purchase).
