    The Mag should do the job if in good shape. But that paint job makes me suspicious. One is why did it need it and two that does not look like stove paint.

    Next to nuke plant Berwick, PA.
    Agreed with BB. Another note...the only things cast on that stove is the door and maybe the legs. The body is plain ol steel.

    May be but I ain't ever seen it. I get a mental image of a break-in fire in the living room and a whole can of Rustoleum on the stove catches fire. !!!

    That paint job don't look right.....

    But the stove if it is in good working condition is a great stove it throws some massive heat with good dry fuel. I can get 8 hours burn time and it hold coals a long time.

    go to tractor supply if you have one close. they sell the us stove 2000 which is the same thing as the magnolia with a pedestal base instead of the legs. it is $499 on their site right now and they may also have a sale. it is not much more than what these used stoves are and will be brand new. it says it will heat 200 sf. i have the big brother to the 2000 which is the 2500. it does a great job and puts off a lot of heat. there is a learning curve, but once you get it you should not have any issues. i am with the others, the paint job on the one does not look right.

    Well if the inside is in good shape it would do. That is a long drive to take a chance that the baffle could be messed up or something else.

    I sold mine for 400.00 but it looked as good as new. Front face of stove was not flat and door had trouble sealing especially when it was up to operating temp. Not sure if that is common on that model or not but I would certainly check the front of the stove flatness on any used purchase.

    Family members have the 5-10 year old Magnolia. Not sure if this is the same vintage: non-insulated solid steel welded in baffle which means you can't clean the flue from inside the stove and warms up a bit slow , moderate to poor firebox air flow so it it slow to restart from coals and creates quite a bit of coals, very poor dynamic range of intake air, when going will create quite a bit of heat, very solid with no failure in any of them. Likely to be replaced with better stoves in 2 of the 4 installations (and then sold on CL).

    Mine is flat.
    Yeah it is a little slow starting. Sounds like chimney draft about the bad air flow mine can runaway easy on me if i am not watchful.

    Judging by my own experiences with the Mag and what I read here, many or most have trouble with excessive coaling.
