Purchased from: Stove Dealer - All swept up

Likes: Will put off plenty of heat when you keep a good fire going. Will idle with hot coals for several hours if you are there to to open vent once fire goes out. Well built heavy stove that should last for years. May need to replace baffles occassionally.

Dislikes: Per owners manual, wood should be placed with length from front to back. This limits the length of logs to 16" max. I have found 15" to work the best. This is an annoyance since i get most of my wood free off of CL after tree service companies have cut down a tree. Most of these guys cut wood in 18" pieces.
The blower could be stronger and quieter. First blower went out in the middle of second season. The replacement fan is now getting louder at the start of 4th season, may be replacing again.
