Beware!

"Just bought this. Been using diesel fuel. Getting codes 30% of the time. Some are low/high voltage. Heater has to be reset. Have to adjust Flow Pressure on the back screw often. Once its started it heats my 24x24 shop well. If you buy this heater be prepared to too tinker with it and keep the directions handy as to understand codes!"

Very Hard to Start

"This product is NOT great, we use diesel fuel and will take a LONG time to start.. fan spins, you can see the mist of the fuel...
Followed all the user manual tips, always C3 which is a pump pressure..
Some days it will take 5 goes to get it fired up, max has been 30!
I found if you manually tweek the air flow screw in the back (start super high, then as soon as it lights quickly turn it back down) is the only way to start it..
NOT GOOD!
Once its started its a great heater, will heat a large barn in minutes! just wish it would work first time!"

"This heater is awesome!!! Good quality and the digital readout is great! Have used it several time and has operated flawlessly. I just leave it on auto and forget about it until the end of the work day. We even needed to use it one time when it got VERY cold to thaw out a couple other salamander heaters on the jobsite when they would not start this one did. Would highly recommend."

Bad product - No support

"Owned this unit for a couple of months and had used it about 5 - 6 times when the pump stopped working. Now we can not get any support or action from either the manufacturer or Northern tool to resolve this problem. Buyer beware."
