    so i've read all the paperwork and the Buck 91 shows a firebox of 4.4 cubic feet....but then i've heard from different people that with the cat gaurds in place the actual box has about 2.4 cubic feet of usable space?

    can anyone confirm this?

    thanks in advance,

    How do you like that 94 Buckeye ? I had heard some bad reports on that stove but I have to think some have luck with them or they wouldn't be selling them. Are you a 24/7 burner and what kind of burn are you getting out of that insert.

    I am a 24/7 burner. I have never had a cat so if you are comparing to a cat you might not like it. I fill every 12 hours and keep above 400 degrees and good heat coming out of the blower. The firebox is a hog though. It holds 8-10 good sized splits. I was considering the 91 when I bought this glad I did not a CAT is not for me. Overall I really like it.

    Thanks Buckeye.....I have a deposit on a new 91 and I was back and forth a little. I know the 94 is basically the same stove but with secondary tubes. This will be my first run at a cat stove, heck my first run at a new stove and a newer design stove. I think I will like the 91. Pick it up next weekend.

    Yeah, that's about what I come up with. I just averaged the different front and back widths and then measured the height. You do have a little more height on the sides of the box where the cat shield ends. I'm guessing that the 94 holds a little more; The tubes might take up less room? I'll try to look at one at the shop when I get over that way. But like Buckeye, I can fit quite a bit of fuel in the 91 as well so I'm thinking the two stoves are pretty close in volume.
