Awesome!! Thank you Allied!!! 1st Choice is right. Its about a week round trip from N.Cal. I'll fly out and rent a Uhaul. Spring Break would probably work out best for logistical reasons.

I'm humbled and grateful. Thank you so very much.

My business email is: ukiahccc@gmail.com

Ttys.

By Spring Break you may be cursing him. LOL :)

I have posted several times on TMF about selling my 20/36 Amtex Inferno (2013). No takers yet and I can understand why. Whatever issues these TM have can be corrected by re-plumbing it and replacing the 2 HXs for some sort of fuel fired heat. The engine, blower and pump work perfectly. Issues are exhaust and pressure side hose configuration.

Sooooooooooo...I have decided to donate it to a upstart TMF member (recipient picks up/GA).

Just need help selecting the person who deserves it.

@admin @toddthecleaner any ideas?

Thanks

It is worth the expense to try. I know the Amtex has its detractors, but if I can get it installed properly and maintain it well... it would save much time and expense in my upgrade from the portable.

I have about a year to get it together before the move to a larger area, where a portable just wouldn't cut it.

I would never disparage someone's selfless generosity, even if it didn't work out.

dont get rid of your portable though. you'll end up charging more for jobs when you need to use it.

You can make it work, worst case just eliminate the known faulty parts and get a separate heater
Right. Makes sense, and would be much easer than running it thru the van's exhaust system.

I really like the concept around the Little Giant. So simple... just needs a well-mounted propane tank and some common sense.

Thanks for the tip Anderson. Will do. The only reservation I have about kerosene is the smell. Is it a real issue?

The Blower, and the motor on that unit are fine. You'll need to add a waterbed, get a little giant heater and you should be good. Ben Saney chokes down the blower inlet or maybe it's the outlet, I can't remember, but it effects your vacuum. They do this to generate heat. So as I said go with fuel fired heat and open up your blower.

I was going to offer him $1000 for the two heat exchangers.

Call him, if the new owner listens to me he'll be getting fuel fired heat. I gave my Heat Exchangers to @Todd the Cleaner off my Amwreck.

Sold my motor, blower, pump, water tanks and frame to @Pinosan for $2k.

This is good advice. Thank you. I'm really excited and very humbled. I've been looking into the little giant heater system for a while and now have a great excuse to pull the trigger. Awesome.
