    CAT2..nice find. I think any of the 100 watt little guys would do. For $19-$30, I don't think you could go wrong. I like the one in the upper right with the little stand that you can velcro down and direct the air flow.

    Had one of those in our older bobcat, worked good except we couldn't find a place to mount it down low by your feet, where we needed the extra heat. other than that it was alot cheaper than a new machine w/heat

    Hey thanks for telling me " Nice Find" that never happened to me before:clapping: Yea I will have to look threw them again, and see what one is the most powerful. And what one I want. I never had a front door on a bobcat, does it want it fog up?

    I would go with something like this that plumbs into your cooling system.

    I actually bought one of these from this guy last year. I have a similar heater in my dozer. They heat very well. They do take longer to install obviously, but they will crank out much more heat than the little 12 volt heaters. Those just don't have enough kick to blow out hot air.

    If you end up getting the type of heater that you plumb in, try to find one that has a 2 speed motor. It makes it a little easier to control the heat, but it's definetly not necessary if you can find one. The heater from Ebay is a single speed, but it has those flaps you can close to help adjust the heat.
