Likes: This coal stove is a 90,000 BTU direct vent (No Chimney Needed) stoker coal stove.
After of years as a having wood stoves and coal stoves that you have to manually feed and that are labor intensive this is the answer if you want an alt. fuel stove without the hassle of splitting wood or stoking a coal stove two times a day. The unit has a 110 lbs hopper where the coal if fed from. Also the unit has a room thermostat where you set the room temp and it adjusts how much coal to feed into the stove to maintain the room temp. When the unit has satisfied the room sensor the stove goes into pilot mode where a small amount of coal is burned to keep the stove going so when to thermostat calls for heat the fire is already there. Any more questions e-mail me…


Dislikes: I wish the dealer had a little more knowledge about the product, just call the stove manufacture instead.
