OK, now back to jacking up our floors

Nope. England's Stove Works does.
What a great forum! Thanks for all the feedback. I'm off to Lowe's and Home Depot to look at support systems. I spoke to my builder and he said the floor was engineered to support 40 lbs per square foot. I'll see what support I can fit in there before making my final stove decision. I wish Woodstock made a smaller version of the Progress Hybrid but I might be able to make this work. Thanks again.
Give it a rest. How many other stove companies sell direct?
Does that mean that if you stand with your feet together you are exceeding the weight limit?
No disrespect intended here by me and I think I might speak for others. Perhaps because of two different moderators in a different thread brought on some of these comments and likes. I highly respect BB but closing that thread seemed a bit petty. But yes, it is time to move on now.
Thanks for the blessing.
I used the pier block and short 4x4 columns to run a laminated 2x6 support beam mid span under the section of floor that supports the hearth. Using materials i had on hand from reno's. The adjustable saddles are a great idea - I couldn't find them here ( to be honest I didn't kill myself looking). I just sat the posts in the pier blocks ( designed to hold a 4x4 post or beam) and shimmed the top connectors. Pretty sure the floor wasn't going to fail but for a few $ and an hour of my time I have a floor I could set 5 stoves on. And zero noticeable bounce / deflection across an otherwise long span evken when big excited newf is chasing me towards the door at walk time Helps me sleep better, even though many would view it as overkill. Also a 3' crawl space, lots of room to work.
Good gosh, woodstock makes nothing but small stoves. Even the 2.8 CF PH is smaller than my baby princess. The fireview is the next step down in size from the PH and quite a nice stove if you're into the woodstocks.
Better safe than sorry - good job
