Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 600 | House Size (Sq feet): 1700
Bought in 2009 , Price Paid: 899
Location : Stillwater, MN 55082,
Purchased from: Other Store Type (Furniture/etc) - Fleet Farm

Likes: Well made for the cost, nicely sized, easy to install. Easy to start fires, holds a lot of wood, secondary burn works excellent, will burn a full firebox of wood for 4-7 hours depending on the kind of wood. Puts out awesome heat and easy to control air adjustment. Wife finds it easy to load and operate. Wish I would of bought it sooner

Dislikes: Taking the baffle and blanket out above the burn tubes for chimney cleaning is a little agravating mainly getting the cotter pins out and then back in again. But it only should need to be done once a season. So I consider it minor.

Comments: Ours vents into a insulated SST flex liner that resides in a masonry chimney that was formerly used for a fireplace.
