    Thought this would be a fun one. The poll would only
    allow me 12 answers so I chose the brands I've read
    most about. If you chose "other" please post
    make/model. Thanks.

    Great poll!
    I noted my St Croix instead of my Harman, since it is my primary stove. Add one to the final Harman total for me :)

    First year of burning but mine is a Breckwell Big E. Hope it does the job. Reason for picking is the big hopper.

    Hmmmm.....a "Dell Point" (never heard of them) listed on the choices, but not an Avalon??

    I bought the Astoria for a number of reasons:

    1. Price - bought a dealer showroom model for about $1000 off list price
    2. Travis Industries seems to make a good stove from what I've read
    3. Plenty of heat output
    4. Big hopper (115 Lbs.)
    5. Looked easy to service

    Austroflamm Integra to be installed 10/24.

    I had put deposit down on Quadrafire Classic Bay, but due to what I felt was miscommunication with dealer (ie: none) I cancelled my order and contacted another dealer for Quad. CB. Owner of first company did call and understood where I was coming from and offered Austroflamm for same price as CB, with an earlier install state than CB, by about a month. How could I say no?

    Looking forward to install!

    PS I voted for "other" and did not get chance to explain :question:

    I have a Kozi KSH-120. Just finished the install this week and fired it up for a smoke test tonight. All appears well. Here's to hoping it works well this winter.

    Oh, yea. I thought this was one of those high class outfits with the drop down boxes and all that cool stuff. Well if I have to do it the hard way then I have a Countryside, Nowdays know a Magnum by American Energy Systems. Somehow Countryside sounds more quaint doesn't it? Anyways it does what it's supposed to and somehow heats 1400SF of ranch here in the Tundra for the last 4 years.

    I have a Sierra Insert, Monday it will have been installed two weeks. Nothing, but problems, with the stove and the dealer. The insert works on low, but if you turn it up on medium or high it will run from 8 to 10 minutes and shuts itself down. “ Over temperature light come on turns stove off”. It was installed and purchased from a local dealer. Monday, I called the dealer with this problem, and each day after that, he will not return my calls, and when I do catch him in the store, one excuse after another. I called the manufacture and they said it needs a new IC chip, and that the dealer would have the chip, in stock because the IC chip was sent to the dealers a few weeks ago. Come to find out the dealer I purchased from is not a true Sierra dealer just a sub dealer, if that makes sense. Yesterday on Saturday once again I called and talked with the dealer’s wife, and she said he would call. Needless to say not call back.

    Here is my solution, on Monday first thing, I am going to call the dealer my last time. If he does not have the chip in hand and on his way to my house, I am going to give him until Saturday to come here and pickup his insert. I am going to tell him in uncertain terms to bring a certified check with him. I don’t have 4,000.00 to toss in the wind.

    I purchased the stove from a dealer paid more thinking it was the right thing to do, so if something did go wrong he would fix it and it would be something I would not have to worry about. If I knew what I know now I could have saved a bunch on money, by just purchasing a insert somewhere and do the install myself. Believe me with the fireplace I have it was not rocket science to install, took less than 30 minutes for him to put it in.

    Conclusion, if this is not corrected very soon, you guys might see me on People court.

    I was lookin for a place to give explanation when I voted too! dah! US Stove 6039i Inexpensive stove that should keep my small home warm. Multifuel, ashpan, nickel trim,thermostat ready, no autostart is the only drawback. Lookin forward to watching Sunday night football nice and toasty after a long, cold day of hunting!

    I have an "other" also. I have an American Energy Systems (Magnum) Countryside. This is my 3rd year burning with it and I love it. It's a great workhorse multifuel stove without alot of bells and whistles.

    There doesn't seem to be many of these stoves out there. Other than an auger motor problem finally covered under warranty, I've had no troubles.
