    Feeling the Heat

    My brother has an older Jotul woodstove that they say is a Jotul American Series 3 and trying to find pricing for it, NO problems with it, used it while living in MA but now in apt so do not need the stove. I will buy it from him if he does not get the reasonable $$ but we are not sure what is reasonable. It heated his uninsulated garage he had as a family from when company came and it was really warm in there. I would love to have it but have the Vermont Casting Resolute circa 1985 but do not find I am getting the heat from it even though it is up to 700 degrees with Flu open but once I shut the flu it slowly goes down. I will talk about his on another post but do want to know a reasonable price to sell the Jotul for so my bro gets its worth from it.

    Moved both threads to the Classic Stove forum for more targeted responses.

    If this is a Jotul F3 it's not bigger than the Resolute. I don't know it's exact capacity, but I would guess the Resolute to be about 50% greater. If the stove is in great condition it could be worth maybe $400? But read the other thread first. I think we need to understand the issue(s) first.

    It's a nice stove. I sold them new for about $599 in black and $799+ in enamel. They were made about 1985-1990 or so.

    I'd say if in excellent condition about 1/2 those new prices - 300 for black and 400 for the higher retail end. Maybe $100 less to a friend.

    About 4 years ago I purchased a used Jotul 3 TD for $400. It was built in 1987, enamel coated, and in excellent condition. I've been very happy with the stove but only use it to heat a vacation home in spring and fall.
