Default Nifty Find

Pulled this little 30,000 BTU Propane space heater out of a Rolloff box a couple weeks ago. Did a little research on it and figured out the odds were high the only thing wrong with it would be a bad battery. I finally got around to checking it out today. Sure enough the battery is FUBAR. Amazon had one for a hair under $20. This will be mighty handy for wrenching on vehicles in my outdoor maintenance facility.
