    Hello

    http://nh.craigslist.org/bar/3770276944.html

    Usually people want to trade their wood stove for a wood pellet stove but NOT in this case! LOL

    see listing
    have a Englander pellet stove, 60 lb hopper, self ignite, 10 temp and blower settings, all venting and intake to hook up, looking for outside triple wall stainless chimney piping, with woodstove would be a nice bonus, need 15-20 feet with clean out tee.

    i had one of those pellet stoves, gave it to my mom, it didnt heat all that well and was more expensive to run than the natural gas furnace.. so I completely understand why they are willing to trade it away

    Why would anybody want to trade a pellet stove for a wood stove. I would think the opposite. Around here people get rid of them because they don't heat all that well and are too expensive to operate.

    Around here there are numerous posts on cl of people selling their wood stoves because they switched to the ease and convenience of a pellet stove. It is very rare that someone posts their pellet stove for sale on cl and writes that it is because of switching to a wood stove.

    Probably unlikely this seller has natural gas.

    X2, so if you have an old wood stove, this is a good way to get a second pellet stove!
