Curious about how well the heater worked outside.
My working on the Jeep season runs from about April to October.
My goal every October is to hopefully not have to work on the Jeep till the following spring.
Couple years ago had to do a CPS in February. But otherwise have been lucky.
Also got lucky with the CPS cause I got a warmer day to do it.
But ever since then have been toying with buying one of those heaters just in case.

I try to plan things out so I dont have to do anything in the cold aswell. But like you said it dont always work that way. I debated for years about getting one myself. I absolutely love it. Now normally I would have been inside the garage for a project like that but the garage was full of other projects lol. Having it outside kept my legs and nards warm while laying under the jeep and i could hold my hands in front of it to warm up and I was honestly comfortable even though it was 10 degrees. It's the same in the garage because the garage is too big to be heated with this not to mention its vented at the top. Had it for a few years now dont really know how i by without it for so long lol

Sorry to babble... I love it and I always recommend them to anybody who has more than a 2 car garage to heat. If that's what you have or something smaller there are some really nice electric heaters I would probably buy first because of the fumes

You misunderstand. I don't have a garage. Would be using it outside just like you did for that one repair.
Think I am going to see if I can find one on Craigslist.
Hope to never use it. LOL.
Thanks for the review.
