    As of 10:15 this morning i've been bathing in beautiful warm air . %-P . Like Awesumm & Shooter advised me, the manual plays a big part in the operation . Made 1 call to dealer this morning for a question before i fired her up & he was just great . But this site, well i don't think enuff good things can be said about the great people on here & the super moderators. Just knowing that i no longer have to depend on oil is a fantastic feeling. Right now, i got her on Auto & only have had to adjust amount of heat output to my liking . The noise from the blower is no louder than an air condioner so i'm happy bout that. I can't even hear the auger. I'm hoping when i report back on here later today that i won't have any major headaches to ask about . But rest assured that my gratitude & encouragement to & from the people on this site won't be put aside . Thanks again, Muss

    Muss,
    I looked up the stove from the manufacturer and it looks real nice. Did you go with the black or the Oxford brown enamel?

    That's a gorgeous stove. I've never understood why there are so few "classic" looking pellet stoves.
