I made this a couple of years ago for my portable heater that I got as a christmas present. The heater worked great for my garage shop but was always running out of propane supplied by the two small cylinders held on the sides of the unit. Then I saw where a special hose could be used to connect the heater to a 20# propane tank. So this solution was devised to hold the tank out of sight and make the whole thing movable around the shop on casters.

Like that idea! I’ve been looking at those heater for the last couple of years. I was wondering how well it works for you in your garage. Does it warm your work area enough and how long does that 20 gallon tank last?

It works pretty well. I usually turn it on for about 20 minutes to warm the garage up before I start working in the evening. I usually have to exchange the tank twice during the heating season. I would say on average I use it once or twice per week during the winter. It probably wouldn’t be economical to run it constantly.
