Mr. Heater Big Buddy Heater 4.8 5 15 15
Quick heat I use it to heat up my hunting cabin while the wood stove starts. Great heat January 12, 2015
just okay After reading other reviews, we purchased the Mr. Heater Big Buddy Heater to warm a garage so we could play ping pong during a winter party. We had plenty of ventilation with a back window open as needed for a gas heater, but the fumes were still too strong. To eliminate the fumes we would have needed to either open another window or partially open the garage door, which completely defeats the purpose. Perhaps this unit would work better outside when it is a tad chilly, as opposed to actually being winter-cold. The heat projected was nice, as long as you were standing directly in front of it, but it was just not powerful enough to hand a one-car garage that was at 30 degrees without heat. January 5, 2015
used for ice fishing Bought this for heating my ice fishing shanty. Really liked the low (as in -NO-) odor factor. Cranked out the heat and the 3 settings worked great to moderate the temp. High to warm the joint up, then down to low to maintain temp.- never seemed to need medium even on really cold days like 0 degrees F. HOWEVER- had some problems mid season with the pilot light clogging from the oil in the 20 lb propane tank...The recommended filter may help prevent this (we weren't running it at the time). A quick blast of the pilot light output hole with some carb and choke cleaner from the auto parts store and back in business. Get the filter- or I read in another review that an inline hose shutoff valve helps too. Rarely ran the thing on the little propane cylinders (the ones that screw right on to the unit)- but it did work dandy on those and you don't need the filter for those. Does seem to be very stingy on propane consumption- Didn't run out on the 20lb tank with at least 14 solid days (dawn to dusk) fishing! Lastly- the fan is neat and I run it off a 12 volt cigarette lighter adapter with variable voltages- which varies the fan speed. "Stirring the air up" in the Shanty definitely helps. Conclusion: Belts out heat- works great. Beware of pilot light issues- get the filter if you are running off a big tank. Fan is a nice touch- get an adapter (Mr. Heater sells one for regular house current) so you don't have buy D cell batteries. December 27, 2014
Good heater. I work outdoors in all types of weather and this heater has been a life saver.easy to use lasts for hours. December 23, 2014
christmas gift This is a Christmas gift for my daughter. Her son plays high school baseball and also plays with a travel team, There are lots of games when it is very cold and I believe this heater will take the chill off the cold night games, we have not tried it out due to it being a Christmas gift. I am well pleased with Dick's fast shipping and well packed. Heater was just as advertised. I am sure we will order from Dick's again. December 20, 2014
Big buddy Purchased this for my daughter and son in laws patio wanted to make sure it worked before giving it to them for Christmas . I am now ordering another one for them because my husband wants to keep this for our screened in porch . We live in Florida and it does get chilly some evening. Works great I can also see use taking it to our grandsons games and camping !!!! November 26, 2014
I am using the heater in my dog is PERFECT! The heater is wonderful....It keep my 440 sq ft insualted kennel warm and cozy...with the setting on the LO temp. I am using 20 lb. propane tanks. One tank will burn 24-7 for four days. It is a life-saver for my puppies. Thanks so much! November 16, 2014
More heat than I expected. I'm very pleased with the operation & the amount of heat that it puts out. The small internal fan is not up to the quality of the unit though. Dicks shiped very fast, had it in a few days. August 20, 2014
Excellent for Ball Games I purchased this heater for the sole purpose of the cold evenings watching my girls play softball, and the only regret is that I did not do it last year! We have a Sport umbrella we sit behind us, place the heater between our chairs - and we have excellent heat. Exceeds my expectations, I do recommend by the kit to fill from a gas grill tank.

This Mr.Heater Big buddy is a great heater for a stand by of any needs! This year winter last so long. I live in Roebuck, South Carolina.I paid my power bill to a Laurens Electric coops for $539.79 my god, So I found down that Mr. Heater Big Buddy is a very good heater for indoor use, than I started to chceked online for any wbsites, So far none of those websites have Mr.Heater avilable for me to buy. Finally I found one from Dicks Sport Goods so I called for an available product and Dicks Sport have them and they shipped to me immediantly. From that day I heated my home By Mr heater, and it was very warm, and save money too. Instead of heating with home heat central system. Thank you to Mr.Heater for indoor used safe product!!! My dear friends I would recmand this product to you for warming needs, But Be safe. Good luck Newman. March 28, 2014
