    I am currently in Southwest Germany and the other day we had cake and coffee in a little cafe. They loaded this baby up and I wondered about its' history. It definitely did not have to heat a lot of square footage. It is snowing here like crazy and the trains and airports have been closed at times. I miss the mild Michigan climate!!! :)

    Looks like a Jotul 606. Nice little heater. Good to see it is still doing the job well.

    It is a 606, I had one and it heated very well. Not very many of them in use here in the States.

    Good point!

    I was just thinking how pretty it is, and wondering why we don't see more here. :)

    Is this close enough? It's a Morso, and its a current model.

    I seen one of them on cl a little while back for three hundred. Should have jumped on it. I already have to many stoves and not enough flues. Im not a big fan of the pre-epa but this one is classy

    There's one on Ebay in mint condition. Nice looking stoves. It has rear or side exhaust too.

    I hear you on the EPA, this one is from the 70's, I don't know when they stopped making them. It probably has a baffle system like the old 602, right? I can imagine that heat exchanger throwing out some major heat though. Just cool to see these classic stoves with the huge heat exchanger on top, my favorite ones are the Morso and the Lange. There's one in the Hearth pic gallery with two or three of those exchangers on it.

    I have one in my basement stored away. They were only sold in the US for only a couple of seasons. They were intended to be run with small loads constantly without damping them down significantly. If they were run in the "load with green wood and then close the damper mode", the heat exchanger would clog up with creosote in weeks. The same folks who ran them that way didnt clean them so they tended to have chimney fires. I think Jotul stopped selling them as it was easier than educating the buyers. If run properly with small loads of dry wood with reasonable damper opening, they are great stoves. I just wish I could find a manual for mine.

    My buddy has one of those sitting in his garage. He used it to heat his house before getting a wood burning furnace.
