Mr. Heater – Big Buddy with 20 lb Propane Tank – Review

Mr. Heater - Big Buddy with 20 pound propane tank

How to use Mr. Heater Big Buddy with a 20-pound propane tank

In the video below, I show you the first time I started up and used my Mr. Heater Big Buddy propane space heater. I opted for using the 20-pound tank connected by a hose and propane filter. This seems like a better setup than the 1 pound tanks since I will be running it all day every weekend.

I’m actually pretty impressed with this little guy. The location I’m using it in is a bit ridiculous, so the results of the space being heated are less than exciting. However, later on in the day I used the heater in a smaller room and had to turn it off because It got too warm in there.

Overall, I would recommend this Big Buddy propane space heater to anyone and feel good about it. Five stars in my book.
