    Let me tell, getting this beast into the back of my SUV with two of us wasn't easy.
    Getting it out of my SUV with just me was much easier...

    I was able to strap it to the bucket, lift it out, and then move it to my garage.

    It's a Fisher Mama Bear, and it should work nicely in my barn.

    I always liked Mama Bear but I never strapped her to a bucket. Hmmm

    Good move.

    Mamabear is a great stove. It should warm the barn nicely. I cant beleive the prices these old stoves are bringing.

    That stove right there is responsible for me getting into pellet heating and throwing out my back for the first time.
    Had one in our first house in the basement but insurance made us replace it and due to low ceilings we went with pellet.
    Loved that stove and miss it dearly.
    Good luck, I'm sure you'll enjoy it in the barn!

    It was practically free, so I went ahead and got it. The barn won't be ready for another year or so, but I couldn't pass up the price.
