How it Works
It is a BTU liquid propane heater, so it's pretty much self-explanatory. Connect the portable hunting heater to a propane tank, pull out the swivel regulator, and twist the propane cylinder in. Rotate the knob to pilot and push. The integrated Piezo sparking mechanism will take care of the rest. With the purchase of a single hose, you can use a large 20-pound propane tank.
The Big Buddy heater is nearly twice the price, but it can heat 400 square feet if needed. The built-in blower helps circulate air.
For smaller spaces, consider the Little Buddy.
