Very adjustable for different fuels. Easy to maintain. Efficient unit. Fuel capacity is ample. Runs at least 15 hours up to 2 days on one fill, depending on set output. Will combust any bio mass (corn, wood pellets, wheat and cherry pits. Will not run any oil seed like soybeans.
Not pretty but then it's a heater, not a silk purse. Maintenance is pretty simple. Consumable parts easily replaced. OEM parts are exceptionally high priced but a little but if Internet searching will yield parts for much less.
Been a great unit. I bought it 20 years ago actually. been basically trouble free. I run it on a remote thermostat 100% of the time and it heats the entire house except when bitter cold and then the central furnace will cycle. I keep the house at 70 in the winter. In 20 years of operation, I've replaced a couple agitator rods, the bearings in the room air fan (twice), one agitator drive motor and one viewing glass. Overall, very little replacement in 20+ years of burning field corn and pellets. I expect the unit to outlive me. Excellent buy.
