    Got your attention didn't I? Eric was cheating from the get go! I think mine would be a better challenge. Just peeked in the window(no I didn't open the door!) and I got less than 1/3 full ash pan with 20 bags thru it. I think 60 is gonna be easy, Not including the 6 inches of room from the bottom of the burnpot to the ash pan. If I can stand it I might just let it go until it quits. Just don't like seeing the temp drop of the heat exchanger.

    If I decide to continue? I stand a better chance that what Eric brought to the show! But I'll probably wimp out and clean it cause I like the warmth more than a trophy. Cold wifey equals lumped up hubby! If you know what I mean. ;-) Your record is probably safe! And so is top gun here with the post count. JIC though, You might want to keep looking over your shoulder. :cheese:

    Here's a picture of what I might look like if the house gets cold! :sick:

    On bag 4 with the Fahrenheit. Gonna try and go as long as possible. The auto clean feature is really nice. Scrapes the pot and gives you a clean slate to work with (can also be initiated at any time by the user). Although I know I wont make it to 60 bags. Just because "I" cant wait that long. I am sure imacman's record is safe. Or at least until one of the new CPM or M-55 users dare take the challenge. Even then, it would probably have to be a M-55 Steel (larger ash pan). The Fahrenheit may do it. The previous owner ran almost 5 ton through it the season he ran it and never did any cleaning (other than emptying the ash pan) because it was "plugged" to say the least, when I got it.

    Cheers guys and gals. Any newb with a CPM or M-55 wanna tackle the task???

    Another fella that might look like the pic I posted! :red: Go for it dex! You got a big ash pan too! ;-) M55 steel has a bigger ash pan than my Omega.

    Need a challenger to step up. Perferably one thats single if you know what I mean!

    Flushed out another challenger for you pete! If a furnace counts??? AFAIK dex isn't playing fair with an ash pan that your CPM could probably fit in! :) Is he cheating already???

    BTW! imacman 8352 to my 8402 hehe! :cheese: jk-jk!

    Methinks that's against the rules....the rules were that you couldn't do ANY cleaning at all. :coolgrin:

    No chance with an M55 cast insert...Ash pan is shallow and small IMHO!!! You can do it Dexter...Beat these North Easterners at their own game!!LOL

    What about an agitator? Same thing?? No?? Just a device to help prolong the burn.

    Just messin with ya. Your record is safe with me. I couldnt go that long. Although it may because of how it does clean (Has a cast burn plate that slides out over the fire and pellets build a fire there. After a few minutes, when the fire beneath dies, the pusher plate (back of burn pot) goes in and out twice(front of pot tilts up to allow clinker/ash to be dumped) and then returns to "home" position. Then the cast plate slides back, and fire drops into pot. Never shutting the operation down). Its a pretty neat system. And the Ash Pan is HUGE...

    But it is along the same lines of your stirrer. It just aids in the cleaning of the stove (also scrapes the pot when it does it..). Door does not open and operator does nothing. So I wouldnt see it as cheating, just an edge on the competition. ;-P

    I wont be the one to break it. Promise.

    Would my self-cleaning burnpot be DQ'ad as well??? I see kykel ran 61 NP without cleaning the burnpot, But the tiny ash pan nicked him so he's DQ'ed. Again the M55 steel has the biggest out of the Enviro's.

    Ash pan looks to hold closer to 60 bags worth depending on brand. Running GT's and I could get more if I switched to a lower ash pellet. I think I can I think I can! ;-)

    Maybe I'll order up 2 tons of doug fir? Bet I'll run the full 100 bags without a hiccup! :cheese:
