Wow! that's pretty slick.
I've been looking at UPS systems (or maybe a generator) for my CAB50, as well as keeping my old wood stove all hooked up.
This is an interesting option!
Great stove for a hunting cabin or workshop...
Would love to see what you get for heat out of it.
I'm still a noob to pellet burners, but something about the specs doesn't add up.
The specs list the output (or input?) at 58k btus, I'm assuming that's per hour as it normally is.
The specs also list a burn time on high (which I'm assuming is what generates that 58k btus) of 12 hours for 40# of pellets.
What am I missing? That math doesn't seem to work out at all.
Strange. Seems like a lot of work to get it going
Good point. I get almost exactly HALF of the 58K BTU when I do the math. Hmmm...
Unless you can somehow employ a fan to extract the heat off the metal , this stove doesn`t look to be an efficient design at all. I`m sure it works to some intended degree but the world is full of inventions that work but are of very limited use or appeal. Obviously it`s designed for use where electricity isn`t found but those places are far and few and usually with better alternatives available.
Yup, that's what I found as well.
There are plenty of applications for this stove... hunters, guides, folks who live off the grid... I've been snowmobiling in the Colorado rockies and the tour operators live in the mountains 24/7 without electricity (in a tent btw)... and an old friend is a rancher out there and they bring their cattle down from the higher elevations and live off the grid all winter. This would be perfect.
There are other non-electric stoves out there but this one is much larger and refined than the others I've seen. A niche market for sure but there is some demand I would think.
