what make/model is that?
LIke the siggy says, Englander 30-NC.
ok, I see you have quite an arsenal in your signature. Wasnt sure which it was.
What stove stores you have in NoVa?
The best is JE Rice Hardware in Manassas.
What I have is a bad habit and a big time need to sell some stoves.
TRX680 what do you have in mind? Welcome to Hearth.
I want to upgrade from what I have now. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200442426_200442426
Its just not big enough. The wood burns out too fast and I'm always reloading it after a few hours. Its nice but just too small.
So I want something larger of course and one that isnt too large to fit into my fireplace. I need it to not be too tall or too deep
Here are my dimensions of my fireplace
Sorry, didn't see your join date. Are you wanting to get away from an insert? How deep is your hearth?
40" from the back to the very front where it drops off to the floor
I'd like to have it sitting out more on the hearth versus have it flush with the chimney
heres a local listing of some Fishers. http://harrisonburg.craigslist.org/for/3867087019.html
I'm not sure of the dimensions of them but I'm wondering if the top flue will be too tall, perhaps a rear flue.
How much hearth in front of the face of the FP? Enough to put a stove on without it being inside the FP?
Having part of it inside the FP is fine.
Member Coaly on the pre-epa forum can tell you anything you want to know about fishers. And probably provide any dimensions.
I like this setup
A WoodStock Fireview, for example, should set out on the hearth far enough to work. Lots of options. If you need big fire power cheap, I'd look into an Englander NC-30 and trim the legs off. About the same price as your Fisher link, more efficient-less wood.
Those Fishers are around 40 years old. Not that I'm knocking them, I'm sure they have done a good job of keeping families warm (see avatar). Unless they've been horribly abuse, they should go for another 40 years no problem. Just not very efficient, burn lots of wood, make lots of smoke and creosote unless burner very hot.
I dont know whats efficient or what works best.
Growing up we had a three story house and a Fisher 2-door stove and it heated the whole house. Mom still uses that Fisher today, in different house, but it still heats great. I'm not sure of the efficiency of it though.
