I know the season has not fully ended but I wanted to share my experiences with the XTD so far. This past weekend was in the 50's and sunny so it was perfect timing to go ahead and clean the liner and do a through check over on the XTD. Overall I am very pleased with how this stove operates, it does what it was built to do, heat. The glass wash does a good job of keeping the glass clean, I only get creosote build up on it when a log touches it during the burning process, and even then that is burned off with a good fire. It likes to cruise at around 500-525 when fully loaded, and has a very nice secondary "show" at its peak burn cycle. The blowers do a good job at keeping the air moving, I tend to run them on high to keep the air moving good in my house, the sound level of the fans is a little on the high side but we get accustomed to it after a while. The looks on the stove could be better, but at its price point you are buying a box to heat your home with, not a show piece. Overall I am pleased with the stoves performance so far, I have been burning 24/7 with it for the last 3 months. Just some specs, my house is a 2 story 1200 sq ft home and this is running in an exterior chimney. 1.Shot of the liner from up top(Black creosote only at the top where insulation stops, typical) 2.Shot of amount after cleaning, most is fly ash and the black creosote on top is just from the little at the top. 3.Shot of back corner above the baffle, slight creosote accumulation (anyone else notice this on other secondary tube stoves?) 4.My main gripe with the XTD, the lip allows ash and coals to fall out to easy, wish they made the burn chamber deeper to hold more of the ash buildup, it also builds up on the door. If anyone has additional questions about this stove feel free to PM me.
