This thing is made of cast high heat cement! I love that i don't have to worry about it rusting

Pine is Fine.
Unless you think it causes Chimney Fires! !! Or causes Rusting! !!
i think its refractory cement. It cost me half of the price of the other same size woodboilers
I have seen what green wood can do to steel stoves. Its a mess!
This thread confuses me.
Me too? ?
Looks great. It looks like it is sitting crooked.
I dont even have to worry about the ash getting wet and leaving it in there all summer or treat the water since the huge brazed copper heat exchanger tubes are in the refractory. They are a small company in Grand Rapids MI called Heissheaters. So far its been great and have got my money back. They have gasifiers now i heard that can burn anything!
I sleep on a pillow that only speaks in German and hates forced justification paragraphs.
I didnt even think it would last as long as i did. I just came across this site to let people know. The steel boilers out there are ripping people off. They test those things with perfectly dried wood. I get no creosote even when im burning green pine!
My buddy went through like12 cord with his steel unit and im getting by with only 8 cord. I think these might be the holy grail of stoves
half the price and wont rust plus I can get pine cheap every day to feed this thing
Hmm, I fully expect both of my woodstoves to last much longer than I do. Rather than follow my gut instinct, which is to just vaporize this whole thread, for right now I'm going to move it out of The Hearth Room into The Boiler Room. We'll see what happens to it after that.
OBTW, you might want to have a conversation with the Webmaster concerning fees for advertising on these forums.
I will advertise it for them and for everyone. It was a good deal and have heard to many horror stories about steel boilers
I have heard this site was a place to comment about outdoor wood stoves and i did. You seem to want to intimidate new members. Are you the bully on here?
He is a Moderator. And it is there job to stop advertising.
You said to "Check it out" in your title. What "Stove" do you own? Or boiler?
There are Rules to this site. Rules that all must follow....
If you want to "Review" a stove? Then there is a section for that also...
I'm one of them (bullies), but only when I need to be. Most of the time I'm a sweetheart. We're naturally just a bit suspicious of anyone who just bursts onto the forums touting some product without any history here, without any information about who they are, their location, experience, qualifications, or anything else. If you've a mind to advertise on these forums for the folks who build & sell this burner that you're so enamored with, then you need, as I said before, to have a chat with the Webmaster.
I'm still assuming this thread is some sort of WWII spy code.
Aside from the fact that the Heiss is a different animal you are still wasting wood by burning it in it's unseasoned state Mr Beardsley. It costs lots of BTU's to evaporate the water out of your wood if you use the heat from your fire to do it.
Just so we aren't talking in code.....this is the unit he is referring to.
The following statement from the above referenced website is humorous at best:
"Heiss Heaters are manufactured from a revolutionary masonry material that is unaffected by extreme temperatures or corrosion. Our heaters burn cleaner and hotter as a result of their “ceramic effect”, resulting in a more efficient burn with less smoke and only minimal creosote."
I would be shocked if a young man from West Michigan was able to discover, develop and now commercialize a "revolutionary" ceramic material in a matter of a few years using (in his own words) "minimal capital". Are there any facts and figures here? Burns cleaner and hotter than what?
And what about this statement:
"Because the unit is constructed of a masonry material, the unit does not need an ash pan and is only required to be cleaned out once per month. An ash pan actually makes a fire burn quicker by releasing hot coals. Other units in the industry, being steel, cannot go without an ash pan because ash is a caustic substance and can create erosion of steel."
And last....really, I'm done after this, Heiss has a 1" output pipe on a "200,000+ BTU" boiler.
Don't you guys realize? It's immaculate combustion.
I swear I've heard all this crap before . . .
I don't know - a gassifier that can burn anything sounds like a winner to me.
