Mr. Heater Portable Kerosene Heater - 125,000 BTU, 3000 Sq. Ft. Heating Capacity, Model# MH125KTR
125,000 BTU Kerosene Heater
Bought one of these heaters in Nov 2012 to warm up an insulated 2,400 square-foot metal building so I can work on machinery in the winter. The space has a 22-foot high ceiling (it's essentially a barn) and is like an icebox through the winter months.
Even on days when the outside temp is below freezing, this unit will heat my building enough in 20 minutes that I can work in shirt sleeves. It's also relatively quiet.
Only downside so far is that it's difficult to refuel as the fill location is somewhat inaccessible. Need a long funnel and another person to hold it while you handle the fuel can.

Bought this last fall and have used it extensively. Quality heater. Built in thermostat works great as it heats up my 2 car garage in literally MINUTES. Burns so clean with Kerosene. No problems with fumes at all. I even use it to warm up the space to paint and no problems at all. Buy the largest you can afford. I've had "name" brand heaters before and this one is by far the best. Work in shorts and tee shirt all winter long. No excuses..Get those winter car projects done!

This an excellent heater. It assembles easily and work flawlessly. I would recommend this to anyone needing quick heat in almost any location, provided common sense is used.

I purchased this heater to operate in a large private garage and it performed without fail. The makers do not taunt the use of diesel but it performs just as well on diesel which is cheaper than the hard to find kerosene (in Florida).. Using diesel probably causes the nozzle to become dirty sooner, I replaced the nozzle after about 3 years on diesel - it was easy to obtain and easy to install - about 10 minutes. The unit still performs as when new and actually looks new. It has been a winner.

All Star Heater
This was my first large purchase at this company. This heater is the best....I have had other heaters but no where near the quality of this one. Everything about it is great. I would buy more if the need arises. You may use my name for any product advertizing.

I have owned this heater for a couple of months and it runs perfect every time. This gas gauge didn't work when I bought it, but I fixed it easily......it was 'cheaply' made but now it works.
I only wish I had purchased a larger (more BTU's) heater, but this thing absolutely keeps my workshop WARM.

We bought the Mr Heater to keep the chill off when we work in the shop area in the barn. It really keeps the chill off. The noise is not all that bad. I can still crank up the stereo or have a conversation and hear it just fine. Easy to operate
is a huge plus. Just flip a switch. Having the fuel tank right there is handy. No additional tanks to pack around. Nice and toasty at the lowest setting and it was about 20 degrees outside.

The first unit I got worked for about 10 seconds and then would shut down stating a no flame condition. Never could get this unit to work. Returned this unit to the store and got a replacement. This unit worked very good for about an hour. Good heat and airflow out of the unit. Shut the unit off and came back out later to use it and unit ran for 5 minutes and then shut down on a no flame condition. Followed troubleshooting guide to no avail. Could not get it to run for more than 10 seconds either. Returned this unit to the store also and got my money back. Seems like a quality control issue with these units. Beware...
