  • Portable 20V Battery Operated Diesel Heater

    Hello all, posted this in the Power Boat Forum earlier and thought I post it here. One of our employees is just getting into flying and needed a better preheat system and my plane and flying is still in the works.

    Did an initial test of a portable diesel heater today that is battery operated with a 20v Dewalt 9amp hour battery. Unit will run for 3-4 hours on a single charge. Our primary objective was to use as a aircraft peheater for winter operations but it can be used for many application even to preheat your car engine in an emergency. To provide as much heat as possible the exhaust heat is added to heat the engine but this feature can be routed away from the fresh air hose for CO2 free heat. We were able to heat the aircraft pictured at 23F outside temp to over 60F oil temp in only 30 mins. We were pleasantly surprised how quickly it preheated the aircraft and believe this will make a great alternative to existing propane systems being used. If interested in one, we'll be taking orders. Just call Ak Frontier Fab. 907-357-9323.
