Bixby maxfire 115 (corn)
Bought the Enviro Evolution 6 years ago. Simple stove that throws heat well. Heated 1600 sq ft cape (upstairs not entirely) from the basement and now have it in my new house supplementing the first floor woodstove. Love the stove. Minor problems: had to replace the circuit board this year, cleaning is a little bit of a pain but overall love it. Now looking for a pellet insert!
I have had a Bixby Maxfire 115 for three years. Just had the feed wheel motor go up....Over all a very nice stove. Stinks that corn is so expensive
Just invested in a Fahrenheit Endurance 50 biomass furnace about a month ago in December 2010. So far it's doing a fantastic job heating a 2500 sq. ft. house, it sits in my basement and is direct ducted into our wide open first floor. Heat goes where we need it, and passively rises to the 2nd floor heating any of the bedrooms where we leave the doors open. Expecting the unit to pay for itself in 3-4 years with what I'll save on monthly LP gas bills over the Winter.

Manufacturer product link is in my signature.
I have been using a Breckwell Blazer since 1990 with no trouble until now. I just did routine maintenance. I may have to install an upgrade kit.
Its a QCP 28000 made by Heilsa in China. Retails for 1300.00 at the Local Canadian Tire store
Hopper size - 1 bag which lasts 20 hours on the lowest of three settings and it's ok by me so far but I'm still on the learning curve
Documentation is a little light as to exactly how modify the combustion so I presume they don't want folks adjusting things
i burn an osburn hybrid-45 just put it in and love it easy to clean !!
I'll have my kid thank you when he has to cash in his dollars for Yen
an appropriate forum for a flamer..i suppose
:zip: thats what i was thinking but 3/4 of crap is made in china...thats sad
Wrong currency Franks. Bet the kid knows that Yen are Japanese money. :lol:
I believe the term Franks was looking for was "Yuan", not Yen. Many so-called "American-made" products are made with Chinese parts, they're a manufacturing powerhouse over there, their stuff is cheap, and any half-witted company looking to make a profit will take advantage of the lower costs.
Voted other - have an Italian duplicate of http://www.ecoteck.us/ just no fancy gizmo's

I bought a Whitfield Profile 30. I resarched on the internet for months, the reason I chose this stove was it was the closest pellet stove dealer. I think pellet stoves are just now starting to gain popularity in Southwest Virginia so the dealers are far and few between. I don't have anything to compare to, other than the comments I read on this forum. It was installed in 2009, the first year has been a learning experience. I had used wood burners for years it took me almost 2 seasons to realize that a pellet stove was a different animal. My most useful information came from members on this forum, although tech support with Whitfield was helpful. I think the bottom line is that the members of this forum are the best source of information there is and very helpful.
This is my 2nd avalon astoria and I still absolutely love them!
I have an American Harvest 6039 and loving the pellet heat. I filled up propane tank at the end of October and its still at 75%. Last year without the stove I'd be about ready for my third fill up.
