I love these stoves. The one listed above is the only one I have seen for sale! I wish there was more info available. I have a thing for rare stoves. I had a Jotul 606 and there was just about as much info available for it as there is for the Free Flow. About all you can find are other people looking for info. :ahhh:

Cool looking stove but I think you could do better in heating your house if that is what you are after...

I have a model 3 Free Flow wood stove for sale on Vermont Craigslist. http://burlington.craigslist.org/hsh/1495835283.html It is a large 11 tube model, weighing in at 350 lb. it takes logs up to 27" long, and is in excellent condition, for local pickup near Montpelier, Vermont, $900 cash sale.
I know some time has passed, but did you sell this stove?

Are these stoves still as elusive as they seem?

I'm on Bullerjan's newsletter list, but have received nothing but a pdf which has the same info as their web site.

Thanks for any help and information.
 
That stove sold very quickly to a man who had owned one, and knew how well they worked. I tried craigslist in Vermont and New Hanpshire, and nothing came up for Free Flow. You might try calling Eric Darnell in South Strafford, Vermont. He is the designer of the stove, and sometimes has used ones for sale.

I have an original Bullerjan that I imported myself with quite some hassle. It is the Bullerjan Classic, but without the protective metal shields on the side. They were not required by law at the time and in my opinion did not help the classic design of this stove anyhow. This furnace has 3+4 pipes, so 7 total. Ideal size for a large living room. I have the glass door mounted, but also the steel door. I used it for about 1.5 years. Here is the website of the manufacturer: http://www.bullerjan.com/web/en/bullerjan-CLASSIC.html

If you are interested in buying this stove, please contact me. I am asking $1300 for it.

I've always thought these stoves were cool. I don't know if I'd want one for 24/7 heating, but it would be awesome in a man cave or hunting camp.....

My experience with the Free Flow wood heater. I live in western North Carolina (mountain area). A neighbor's brother-in-law gave me a #2 (9 pipe) free flow 9 years ago; I had been looking for a wood heater and he wanted to give it to someone he knew might need one and would take it. When I saw it, I knew that it had to be super high efficient because of the design. After using it for a couple days, my suspicion was not only correct, but greatly exceeded. I paid him 60 dollars for it. I live in a 1800 sq ft house with full basement and heat entire 3600 sq ft 100 percent by this amazing heater. It does work you down keeping it stocked with wood. An example of it's heating capacity, one night this winter the temp went down to zero here. I filled the hearter up about 9 PM and went to bed. At about 7 AM the next moring, the temp in upstairs was 68 degrees, perfect sleeping temp. Also, there were plenty of heat and coles still in the hearter. I did have to make one modification to the heater after the first winter. There is a steel plate baffle welded inside the hearter at about 1/4 way down from the inside top for purpose of circulating fire from back toward front and then out to chimely. Because of expansion and contraction of this plate, a break at seam of the plate and pipes occured in a couple places. I welded the break up and then cut a slot from the front end of the plate to within an inch of the end at the back of the heater. I have not had any other problem other than the metal plate that lies in the bottom of the heater which has burned almost thur a couple times. This is an easy fix as it slides out of the hearter easy. I just weld a patch plate on both sides and it is good for a few more winters. This is an amazing heater. If anyone knows of a Free Flow hearter for sale, please e-mail me @ russ2339@bellsouth.net the info as several of my friends wants one too.

I just caught an error in an earlier post I made in March of this year. I said the heater would work you up keeping wood in it. I meant to say that it WOULD NOT work you up, as it will not.

As to the cheater price accross the border...from my place in western NC, Canada is a good way away; at today's gas prices, may not be an advantage in my situation.

I drove to Cincinnati, purchased the heater and was back home with it in 11 hours....a nice trip also.

I saw this one called the 'Bruno' while looking at some English stoves earlier today. Not sure if it's a re-badged Bullerjan or another copy of the design

'Bruno' Free Flow clone

One of the options cuts off some of the tubes to add a cook top. But 1,537 Sterling is almost $2,500.
