Beast of a heater! Looks dandy!
Did you check the Maxx M while stove hunting? Just curious what the price difference between the Maxx and the Maxx M.
I purchased the Maxx used, but in great shape, and it is a beast!!
The Maxx raises the temperature 20*F in less than an hour.
Geez, Could have fooled me looks brand new! Don't see many used ones. Nice score! ;-)
Why did they sell it?
Maybe it ate too many pellets. ;-P
But you guys were right "better bigger than not enough."
Time for a Tim the tool man grunt! :cheese:
These things were born to eat! Mechanical hippo. ;-)
Nice setup - looks just like my Maxx basement install. If I had to do it all over, I would've done it sooner! So I see you have it oaked, was that a DIY or did you purchase some sort of 'kit'? - I've been meaning to add one for next season to see if it makes a difference.
This was my first DIY install, and many thanks throughout this process to all that helped with solid advice and tips on this forum
Wachusett recommended using the Z-flex alum flex and 3" vent kit found here:
Quality stuff at an excellent price for an DIY OAK install.
Maxx Pellet list $3,079.00, Maxx M List $3,499.00
Looks great..... Oil Man not liking that ;-P
Very nice job.... Big unit, Big BTU's, Big appetite, Big Savings......... Love it
The Maxx is a great stove and really efficient . I installed it three years ago in the basement and couldn't be happier 142 bags to heat upstairs 1000 sq feet and basement 1000 sq feet last winter . A heck of a lot better then heating with wood
This winter so far I have used 68 bags and about to bring in 4 more . Not bad for Northestern Ontario . Very happy .
if you got it used do you know what "program" its running on? that stove can be tuned up or down by 10kbtu on 5. it comes @ 60 and you can move a jumper pin on the control board to bring it to 70 or 50
Nope I didn't check out what it is running at, but I can't picture it needing more.
I'm very happy with this stove, for it ignores the fact that it is surrounded by concrete that it needs to heat. ;-)
As big as they are, People think they eat like crazy. They can, But I have seen them be more pellet frugal than a heater of a lesser size. The heat exchanger is massive on these monsters and convert goobs of the heat many would send out the vent! I can't recommend many for a basement install, But the Maxx and a P68 lead the pack.
hwdemers is correct they are defaulted to 60K BTU's. Not many have needed the change to the 70K.
You getting much heat transfer upstairs?
Actually I was just thinking that the Maxx is pretty frugal given the environment that it is being asked to heat.
I think it would be a good basement heater for transferring heat upstairs, but I'm just looking to heat the basement, and I have the basement door closed.
The floors upstairs are nice and toasty though. ;-)
I have nothing to compare to, but I will say I'm very happy with the way Regency=Enviro is heating my house.
