I have looked at a lot of stoves and what they are setting on and how much room each one has left on the sides and in the front of the stove, floor protector. Now I know some load on the sides and some front. The front load ones is my question. How do you get away with only 8-10 inches in front of stove with your floor protector? Every where that I have looked just about every place was 20-25 inches from front of stove. Mine is 25 inches from front of stove to wood floor. I see tons of stoves only 8-10 inches from stove to floor and most are wood floors. Just wondering how and why??
