    In all seriousness, thanks for your replies BKVP. Your responses and info have been very helpful. I am set on our next stove being a Blaze King just based on what I’ve read from your replies and what I’ve read on this forum.

    Yah but... did your boys in engineering manage to get the ash plug over the pan on the first revision, this time?

    No matter, I’d likely still buy BK over any other brand, even if they managed to put the ash plug in the side wall. Yeah, they are that good.

    PE32 beta testing was done long before introducing to the market.

    I do keep a short list for future projects...

    I trust I'm on the list to test the 15cf Super King with the ice cream dispenser!

    Tell the engineers that I like cherry ice cream with real cherries and bourbon in it.

    Jeez, I don't even know half of those!

    I'm going to guess that you are a man of taste and pick the Bulleit Bourbon, as it has the most missing from the bottle. :)

    Also, apparently ordering custom woodstoves is really fun.

    When done working on wood pile, late evening and buddy is over...IW Harper is spectacular. I had to get local store to order it...not easiest to acquire.

    Whistle Pig hard to beat sitting in front of the fire.

    I’ve been moving lots of BK food since the rain let up. It may not be whistle pig, but I’ll drink to that!

    Moving 1/3 cord one time is really nice! I only handle the wood once before loading it into the stove!

    Switch to Coors Light and the money saved will add up quickly

    You want to be rich and miserable, or poor and happy?

    I mean, I can't guarantee that you'll be rich if you drink Coors Light, but I'm pretty sure you'll be miserable. ;lol

    Oh man, I am also jealous of the tiller. I've spent a few days running PTO tillers on a Kioti and they do excellent work.

    Is it hard to stack wood in those totes? Like do you have to bend over to place the bottom ones just right?

    Is this new terminology for the same old cat? What is that, Iron (Fe)-Cr (Chromium) alloy? That don't sound right..

    It’s not hard at all. There’s a large hole cut in the front and the back for access.
    It’s actually a 7’ flail mower, not a tiller.

    This is definitely a threadjack, I don't even own a BK, but I'm supremely jealous of those totes. Nice tractor, I moved some wood with mine today, but not in such a convenient way.

    Apparently I need to check this thread more often. How old is the Jameson? That 21 year Bushmills is probably heavenly.

    Just trying to put some life in this thread.
    These totes are the only way to go if you’ve got a way to move them. They weigh about 1,600lbs loaded up.

    Sorry, I didn't mean you were thread jacking, I meant that I was.

    I have a DK4710SE, so it would be no issue. Recently I've been using it to move boulders with my grapple.

    No, it's actually a Titan attachments (Chinese I'm fairly certain) V2. It's really been handy for ground engagement since it's a root rake style. Truly it would be better suited to a skid steer, but it does what I want it to do, pick up rocks.

    I'll take a photo of the Boulder pile tomorrow, it is quite extensive now.

    Now all you need is a Blaze King, some forks, and baskets full of wood! Ohh, and a really good counter weight!
