Cheapest i've seen one of these. Guy in the machine shop behind us paid over £300 for the same model so this is a bit of a bargain. Cheapest equivalent on Machine Mart is £287! Diesel ones are way better than the propane heaters as they're much cheaper to run. Picked one up myself for playing in the workshop over the winter

Nice deal OP. From a newbie who has just got a workshop with no heating, how do you vent the exhaust? thanks.

Oh I see, for use in open and semi open spaces only.

tbh our machine shop uses it with the doors closed and when i've borrowed theirs for the workshop, i've done the same. but these are quite large spaces. you could always get a carbon monoxide alarm just to be safe.

can you run this on bio-diesel too?

from a pump probably but i wouldn't risk using homebrew - might clog it up. you can't treat these the same was as old diesel engines. just use red diesel, nice and cheap.

Bio diesel is a powerful solvent and actually has the opposite effect of "clogging up". Engines only tend to get clogged at the fuel filter because when people swap over as this stuff removes carbon deposits left in engines that have previously been run on mineral diesel. This will run on bio diesel no problem at all providing the engine does not have natural rubber components, which nowadays is highly unlikely.

Can anyone comment on the reliability of Draper space heaters?

I'm very tempted by the price, but not sure whether to get this for £170 or a Sealey AK708 70,000BTU for around £250? Can anyone please advise?
