There are two versions of the Big Buddy, one with a fan and without. This unit for sale does NOT have a fan. . I think this feature is exclusive to Lowes units.

Just for anyone wondering this unit does a solid job of heating a 2 car garage. I used it while working on my car yesterday while the outside temp was in the 20's

Mr.heater removed the fans due to import tariffs. This is not a feature exclusive to Lowe's units. There is mixed stock in the red units, but the green and grey units seem to still have the fan for now. I think they are old stock. The one I bought from DSG did not have a fan.

I think that depends on your use. I use mine in a 1.5 car garage, mine doesn't have a fan. But when I'm working I run a box fan to circulate the air in the garage anyway. Today I used this setup to heat my garage from 20 degrees to 53 degrees in a little over an hour. Even without a fan running this thing puts out a good amount of heat. On low it gets my 6 person tent up to temp in 10 minutes or less, depending on ambient temperature. The radiant heat helps a lot for that. A fan would probably help but the area is so small. I could see the benefit in locations where a separate fan or using up an outlet wouldn't be possible. But at the reduced price, it's not hard to attach your own battery powered fan to the handle. I have a USB powered fan I run off a battery pack. Much easier to recharge that than find 4 d batteries.

Good deal, just FYI. I can confirm that these units do not have the fan feature that helps distribute the heat. If you're looking for a big buddy with fan you will need to buy the green one from Tractor Supply.
