    This is a new stove by Enerzone. Now, when a manufacturer introduces a new pellet stove, I put it thru its paces for a season before marketing it to the public. (am doing the same with Hearthstones new pellet stove as well right now)

    Here is a link to the Euromax:
    http://enerzone-intl.com/product.aspx?CategoId=5&Id=549

    This stove has an 130lb hopper advertised. I actually fit more than 3 bags in it, so I consider that a conservative claim.
    It is a bottom feed system, which I dont have a lot of experience with. So far, no issues with the bottom feed.
    We are burning Curran softwood pellets.
    The stove is rated at 70K btus. Based on thermometer readings in the showroom on similar outdoor temp days it doesnt heat much better on high (approx 8lbs per hour) than the Europa on high (4lbs per hour) or the Magnum Countryside on high (6.5 lbs per hour) On the lower heat settings the heat actually seems better, maybe due to the cfms of the fan.

    I have burned about 40 bags of pellets thru the stove with ZERO cleaning (aside from the glass) The ash pan is about ready to need emptying (trying to see if I can get a full ton thru her first) Never had to scrape off the burn tray.

    They advertise a quick start ignition which actually works. I have flame in less than 4 minutes and convection heat blowing out in less than 10. Its a nice feature.

    No error codes yet. I have run it unattended on low over two holiday weekends for 3 days and came back to a happily burning stove.

    The next test will be to use a lower quality pellet. Maybe NEWP or some big box store stuff that is known to be trouble. See if that slows the Euromax down.

    Its a little noisier than I would like and the glass doesnt stay as clean as on some stoves, but so far for a $3800 stove I get the feeling its worth the money. The other thing I like about Enerzone pellet appliances is they give the dealer excellent warranty reimbursements for labor. They are the only manufacturer where I dont need to bill the customer for a warranty call and I still dont lose money.

    I plan to get three tons of pellets thru the stove before I sign off on it and start to sell them, but so far so good.

    I have been cycling between this stove, the hearthstone and the Europa, but I'll try to focus more on the Euromax so I can get another 2 tons put thru by the end of the season.

    If anyone has any questions on the stove, this would be a good time to ask since its sitting about 30 feet from my desk, humming along.

    Hello. I want to buy this stove very soon. Do you have bad experiences with the stove. Is he going to be effective to heat my house 46 x 24, from a basement? I look also drolet eco 65 and enviro maxx . I already had an electric furnace blast, is I want to take the flow of air to circulate air throughout my home. I know that you can install a plenum for two Pipes of 4 inches. I'll probably run into a family room in basement, near the open staircase that leads to the ground floor. For another, I do not know how to place the lead. I have my bathroom just up. I will not blow any heat in the basement. It's going to be too hot. So I would like you to give me as much information on the experience with the Enerzone Euromax.

    thank you very much

    I like the looks of this stove. Bet its a brute.

    Does this unit have an agitator in the burn pot?

    Same stove as the Drolet Eco-65 So far the members seem to be happy.

    DexterDay just bought a EuroStar. He doesn't have it hooked up yet. But we expect a nice review.

    Yes, I was just talking with DexterDay about the Eurostar. From what I can see (user manual), the ECO-65 does not have the same user control. The Osburn and Enerzone units have an LCD touch panel. The closest Enerzone dealer is 70+ miles from me...

    SBI units seem to have lots of interest lately. Draw back is not a lot of dealers locally. 70 miles isn't that bad if you make it a fun trip. Any interesting stops that you can check out on the way?

    The service from the dealer is more important than the distance. When I brought my Maxx in Dec 2010 I paid for the stove, loaded up the stove and drove off. Dealer was not the nearest but would provide me better price and would talk about issue. When my auger motor went bad under warranty they ordered a new one and called when it was in stock. I dropped off old broken one and showed them how it was broken. They asked what I did for heat without the motor. I told them that I had installed a spare from my Whitfield it was a 1RPM. This worked until new motor was in. They said hold on one and had their tech come out and was asked to tell him my story. I drove an extra 30 miles to buy from a dealer that was friendly and understanding.
