Diesel/paraffin heater - Free

#1 by ronniecabers , Sun Mar 12, 2017 12:24 pm

******FREE******


Tidying up tbe shed came across a Clarke Xr55 space heater, runs on either diesel or paraffin. Plugged it in and tne fan works but nor sure if there is enough fuel to run it as it didnt fire up. Now i was given this about two years ago from a friend who owns a farm and it was in a barn so to be honest its condition is a little rusty to say the least! I'm not after any money for it just wondered if any of you could make use of it ...but it will need collecting or the use of the forum courier service and I'm willing to hold on to it until someone is ready to collect.

my mate has one of those in his garage they heat it up well sounds like a rocket when it is running I think you can also run them on old engine oil and veg oil too,

that sounds ok then , as the fan does sound a little ' throaty ' but i've had gas ones in the past ( much smaller ) and they are noisy but certainly warm the place up!
