Ground Heating Machines

The Thawzall TCH250 is a breakthrough in ground heating technology. With the patented HEATZONE® fluid distribution technology the TCH250 delivers improved capability and superior ground thawing, frost prevention, concrete curing and heat for any job. This unit produces 250 MBH of heat with unmatched uniformity through 5 separate 600’ zones. This is simply the best hydronic heater on the market; it thaws more quickly, cures more evenly, and saves a minimum of 24 gallons of fuel per day over the closest competitor.
