I picked this one up off ebay a few years ago for $80 shipped. The seller didn't want to send it to me since it didn't sell for enough. I filed a dispute and ebay froze his PP account. It came pretty quick then
My Dad had one when I was growing up, thawed out a lot of stuff with that thing!

Yeah Man!

I have one of these for my 5th wheel, we take it camping for camp grounds that will not allow firewood fires;

My little shop has a old gas forced air furnace. I have a storage room addition (on the back of the shop), that is not heated. The 1772 was stored in there, it would not fire up, due to the cold.

I stuck that little fireplace in there, went back an hour later, it was TOASTY in there!

It's propane, keeps the fumes down.

The floor in my shed is 2x8s so I get plenty of air flow through the floor and the vents in the eve, I know several people with these heaters in there living room which I would never do but out in the shed I think it will be fine. I just won't be able to use it if I'm working on a gas problem.

..or around solvent based paints (without a mask). Some of this stuff causes serious respiratory irritation, and can by itself or when combined with other stuff cause central nervous system damage. Just be safe.

They work pretty well. We've had an Omni 105 for a couple decades. I've found that if I take it outdoors and light it out there, let it get good and warmed up that when I bring it in it doesn't stink. When it does get to smelling it isn't hot enough and either needs fuel or turned up. Take it outside to shut off, too.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
