Now that I have your attention, hehehe. This is the inside of a Heatilator CAB-50.

LMAO Yeah that got my attention. Thanks for the pics. I love checking out other equipment and I would never get a chance to see stuff like this if pictures weren't posted. Thanks!
Man thats like a mansion in the working areas of the stove. I wouldn't mind doing maintenance or repairs on that puppy.
I hooked this unit up as a demo in the store. It is very quiet and is impressing the heck out of me. Hmmmm, maybe I see a three month torture test in it's near future.
I will admit this that it's first pellets were about 20% sawdust. They been sitting around all year in a pail and I think I kicked it a couple times so guess what? In the CAB-50 it went. let see what else that is pissing me off around here.
Anyone got ideas on how to abuse this unit? Let me know and I will see what I can do. I am not skeeeeered.
quiet, you say. hmmm.
i've been thinking we are getting the ps50 soon. but this makes me think.
i see on at least one site the ps50 is rated>75% efficiency. and the cab 50 comes in at >80%
do you have any accurate info regarding these ratings?
i also seem to notice the two stoves are priced the same.
of course i'd have to see what my dealer is actually asking for each.
but do you pay the same for this as the ps50?
Why did I open this? Then I saw what it was and thought Whew thank God!
Other than what you see it is all about the same data on the Heatilators. I sold two this morning and both customers were interested in the PS50.
Wow. Lots of open real estate... looks like a winner. Cant wait to stop down some time. Will definitely try and stop out when you are doing the "torture test" .
:lol: OK, here we go again....but this time, I'm not getting into the contest. My guess is that I'll be holding onto the trophy for quite some time.
Want to abuse the stove? Get some Infernos. :ahhh:
I had a customer trade in a stove and when I went to pick it up they made me take the last two bags of American Wood Fiber pellets they had. These two bags were on the porch since last burn season and looked like the cats had their way with them. I washed my hands after touching them. I dumped one of those bags into the stove this morning. Those pellets looked BAD. They are burning without issue.
Do the torture test, but you have to run all Infernos, All the time.
Get a hold of Pook...let him modify it...that should be torture enough!
any updates Eric?
Oh yeah don't stop! Take off the front panel and let me see your burn pot too you hot little stove you.
This is the stove that your Grand-daddy warned you about. I swear the other day I saw this stove walk over to another brand that starts with a "B" and lifted it's leg on it.
This unit is not a pretty boy or powder puff. This stove is made to work and I think I can get BTUs out of sand with it.
**** The "Little e" just filed a complaint that the CAB-50 took it's lunch money. HaHaHa.
You need to go out on a limb and find some really cruddy pellet brands. See if you can make it choke.
Does it inhibit the same quad quirks like the little missed start ups? The ones you just need to hit the reset buttom and it lites fine the second time around. Hated that and it always ticked me off coming home to a cold house.
Have you cleaned it yet? I remember walking in a seeing the volcano of ash above the burn pot on the PS-50 last season.
If its been running straight? How many days/bags?
See you Saturday morning..
I cleaned it once and by expalining what I did was open the door, used a paint brush and puched the cold ash into the burn pot. I then opened the burn pot and let the ash fall into the pan. I closed the burn pot and stove and took the ashpan outside. I put the ashpan back in and started it. Took 45-60 seconds. BAMMMM!
Dex when you saw the PS50 that ash was above the top of the drop tube, I think.
When it has a cold start in the morning it does need me to hit the reset button once. It shuts off and turns on all day long without a miss. I shut the stove off at night when I leave the store. The mice and skunks that live under the building do not need the heat.
It was an astonishing amount of ash. Thats all I remember. That and it was built around the burn pot a few inches like a volcano. Very impressed when I seen it.
Looking forward to checking out the new Heatilator tomorrow morning.
pics or it didn't happen...
Knowing dex, he'll probably take a picture of it in the back of his pickup. This one will end up in the john.
You can put on in the john can't you?
Although it would be more purposeful in the dog house if he actually brought one home.
Checking with the inspector tonight. Master Bath is pretty big. Jacuzzi tub takes up a lot of space and its never used. Should be able to see Fire, no matter where your at now ;-)
Well what did he say on a stove in the Bathroom?
