Well i have crushed a ton and a half this year in my new stove. Installed the end of march last year. So not much use last season. I can say I am happy. And more importantly so is the wife. Got about a half ton of stove chow left. This week I will pick up another pallet. The stove has been awesome in the cold snap. Its been running nonstop for over a week and the house is warm and downstairs heat pump has not come on. Upstairs heat pump has kicked on a handfull of times during the night. When its in the teens. I hope to be rewarded with a small electric bill. Gonna need to shut her down soon for a good cleanout. Supposed to be high of 60 on wednesday so that should work. Its fun burning pellets. LOL!
