[Princess Auto] Standing Propane Patio Heater $149.99

I've been looking for one of these and they are either sold out or really expensive. Princess Auto has these in stock. Not much information but with the return policy it seems like a no brainer for me. Rule of RFD Buy first think later applies here

That powder coat might rust in no time. And lugging it back to the store might not be worth the time and effort.

Would it work as an umbrella replacement for a round-patio table? How practical is 41,000 BTU, I mean, would it allow to comfortably sit outside all Fall up until the first snow? :)

I was looking extensively at these a few years back as my condo had natural gas hook up and it was unmetered. Also looked at propane tanks based ones.

What I learnt is that most have parts that fail and they are all some random brands with questionable post sales support. The igniter being the one that fails frequently. These do not perform well in the wind.

Then I thought to myself how often do bars struggle to get these things going and those are commercial ones. The higher end bars have crazy wide ones that are more reliable.

I passed on buying one but at this price

No comments on this unit in particular

I think i own the same one. Its fairly simple inside, nothings broken down in the last couple of years.

Not much rust even though i just keep it outside. The hat is super flimsy and fell off a few times, looks a bit wonky now.
I didnt end up using it as much as i thought i would because the wind usually blew the heat away. I cant see it heating up a whole table unless its not windy at all out.

Not sure what you mean by a replacement for an umbrella. This thing won’t keep you dry and def won’t fit In That round hole in your table.

They do make table top heaters. That are short and sit in middle of table. Might have less wind effect and I think they make infrared ones.

Ordered, I was waiting for it to show up on their website, they always put it up the day before.

I am 100% expecting my order to get cancelled. I ordered a kayak carrier and a park bench (twice) they all got cancelled more than a month after ordering it. They have a terrible system.
I don't fail, I succeed at finding what doesn't work

Sold out now. I've been trying to get my hands on these for a few weeks. If these come through I could kiss the OP.
