    This is my first time posting. My dad use to build these stoves in NW Minnesota. I remember seeing the steel plant stacked with these stoves when I was a kid. He also built a bigger double barrel stove they called the "Pribbs 48" that kicked out the heat like you woudn't believe. I don't know much about the design or BTU out put, but I think I can find some literature on it. Asked my dad and he said he could build one in his sleep. When he stopped production he loaded up a semi and a guy in northern Canada bought them all. My dad kept a few for his own use. I know we still have a bunch of wood nobs for the handles.

    Welcome Brenda. Thanks for the great background info. These look like stout, well-made heaters.

    Hi,

    Just saw this and wanted to see if anyone has found any product info on these stoves. My husband purchased on about 20 years ago and we are about to install it in our cabin. We need information on installation etc. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    And a general question to all: does anyone know where the Hurricane stoves were manufactured, or what the parent company name is/was (IF there was a parent company)?

    Thanks in advance

    Not sure where they were manufactured but mine has the plate on the back. It's not easy to read. I cleaned it up as best I could. Hope it helps.

    Man, that is a pretty stove! I have the 11 hole, which is one size up from yours, with the same motif on the doors. My sister has the same one you have and I also have the 7 hole, which is a size smaller than yours. I am looking for the 5 hole, it is a single door.

    I did some digging and found where the trade mark was registered, but that is all so far. I tried calling the man who used to sell them in my home town to see if he had any idea where they were made, but he didn't know either.

    It is my opinion that Hurricanes are the BEST wood stoves due the blower system. The pipes that run through the firebox is just so simple and effective. Maybe Someone at UL can dig up some info on Hurricane...
