HotBox: Powerful & Ultra-Efficient Industrial Heaters

HotBox is our brand new, high-performance, ultra-energy-efficient industrial Flameless Heater, Generator and Light Tower.

Meet the Ultra-Efficient Industrial Flameless Heater Changing the Heating Game

HotBox is Nakoda’s exclusive next-generation, high-performance flameless heater delivering superior heating and cost efficiency, and it is cleaner and safer than competing combustion heaters, and HotBox has a built in Generator and Light Tower.

Two Different Sizes. The Same Revolutionary Performance. 


HotBox may be our smallest heater, but don’t let its size fool you. Just one of these units replaces 2.5  traditional indirect flamed heaters, one Generator and one Light Tower.

HotBox boasts 97% heating efficiency and 48 hours of continuous runtime.

At a dry weight of  3, 000 lbs (1, 364 kg), it has a diesel capacity of 450 liters (118.8 US gallons).  The Kubota 2.4 Litre Electronic Tier 4 Final engine is complemented by an air-to-air exhaust heat exchanger, primed for optimal performance.

HotBox XL

HotBox XL strikes the perfect balance between size and performance. Just one of these units replaces 4.5  traditional indirect flamed heaters, one Generator and one Light Tower. 

HotBox XL boasts 95% heating efficiency and a run-time of over 48 hours, and is the best performing industrial heaters of its size.

It has a dry weight of 7, 000 lbs (3, 175 kg) and has a diesel capacity of 680 liters (179.6 US gallons). The Kubota 3.8 Litre Electronic Tier 4 Final engine combines perfectly with simplified controls and an air-to-air exhaust heat exchanger to create a seamless heating experience.

Premium Features

HotBox, our ultra-efficient flameless heater is rented with the following premium features:

SmartTalk Wireless Technology monitors your heaters 24/7 for any items of concern: engine faults, low fuel, or failure to maintain remote thermostat set points are just a few of the factory installed SmartTalk presets. Say goodbye to endlessly patrolling your heaters for issues.

A simple and intuitive interface that will successfully serve the needs of all applications.

Cut refueling costs in half by combining our ultra efficient platform with a perfectly sized onboard fuel tank.

Recirculation is one way we achieve heater efficiency: our heaters draw in air from the heated environment. They’ll even draw waste heat from one area and repurpose it to another area. This feature can easily increase efficiencies by up to 75%.

Our customers asked for more visibility and more light to
simplify working in dark conditions.

With the addition of power generation in the Basecamp you can provide your worksite with (3) Twist Locks — 30 Amp and (3) GFI 20 Amp 120v power.

Providing you with extra oil, oil and fuel filters, and spare belts when you are operating in the field.

Annual paint touch ups on heaters (done properly) is one of the most costly and tedious maintenance functions there is. That’s why we install ultra durable Rock Guard on the most exposed surfaces. Rough neck tough and easy to touch up!

Replacing ducting every year is a thing of the past, thanks 
to our custom-made, battle-tested Alpine ducting series. 
Our standard ducting kit for each heater includes:

• (4) 25’ sections of 12” Alpine ducting
• (1) 10’ section of Alpine ducting
• (1) Alpine Fabric Splitter (Y)

Worksites are often overheated to offset falling outdoor temperatures and mitigate risk of heater failure. This significantly increases heat loss and fuel costs.

Save on fuel and reduce risk of heater failure with remote temperature control and monitoring. Monitor heater performance from anywhere, and set your temperature exactly where you need it.

Keep your heater securely in place with a set of high quality wheel chocks.

Batteries remain the #1 problem with starting engines in cold weather. This option adds the protection of a second premium starter battery delivering double the cold cranking amps and the addition of a battery “Genius” to make sure your batteries can be maintained indefinitely just by plugging the heater into shore power. Whether it’s just a week of extreme cold during Christmas break, or the extended off  season, you’ll be operating at full power!  **Available only on Basecamp XL

20lb Fire Extinguisher, Mount and Cover

Even in extreme cold weather, your heater will start when you need it to.

By tightly controlling the combustion process, our modern electronic engines allow for longer life spans and longer
intervals between service. The electronics also continuously monitor engine safety, greatly reducing risk.

Know what’s going on with your heater, with a single, simple glance. Green means the heat is on. Yellow means the heat is on, but needs help. Red means unit down. Simple as that.

Wheel chocks are required for safety, and there’s no point in having them if you can’t find them. That’s why we built custom holders for them on each and every heater.

With the Basecamp heater, quality doesn’t stop with what’s on the inside. Our weather-resistant paint, and tough-as-nails construction, ensures your heaters will last through many tough winters to come.

The nature of temporary heat is that jobs are always changing. That’s why we recommend storing ducting on the unit where you know you’re going to need it. One less thing to forget, and one less thing to find a place for.

Fork Pockets

Maintain worksite safety with an automatic valve to help prevent engine overspeed by cutting off air supply.

With our extended service package you can eliminate
in-season oil changes and reduce the risk of equipment downtime by maintenance being missed.

Worksites are too often dark and poorly lit leaving dark spots
for your workers and equipment. This option provides your worksite with a 25’ telescoping light tower and 192,000 lumens of 360° lighting.

Preventing contaminants from entering the heater cabinet during travel and storage is the simplest way to avoid unnecessary equipment depreciation.

Choice of: Pintle, Thumb and Pin Style.
