Is this new version 2 of the 602, the same as the ECO for North America? Same product, just different name?"ECO" and "Ecodesign" is the UK equivalent of USA "EPA 2020".
Where stoves sold here will have an EPA 2020 sticker, there's will have an ECO sticker.
Thank you.Doesn't look like it. The V2 is a different design than the ECO which is for European markets. You can visually distinguish them quickly. The ECO has a plain front, no slider grate air control and nothing after the "602" cast in the face. The US version 602v2 has the slider grate air control and a small mark (v2?) after the 602 cast in the face.

I just ordered one but i think its going to be a couple of months before arrival. Can you tell us how you made out with burn times and 24/7 burning, and ash removal.. Thanks...https://jotul.com/us/products/wood-stoves/jøtul-f-602-v2
Looks like Jotul made their little giant 2020 compliant and kept it non cat as well. This stove will be going in my cabin this fall.
I have the CB but burn times were pretty much as the manual states, around 5hrs but I'd call it more like actual usable heat hours. You can pack the fire box full with good hardwood and have consistent 6-8 hr burn with enough coals to load her up again but the actual heat output is more like 4-5 hours which is fine if your house can hold the heat for a few hours.I just ordered one but i think its going to be a couple of months before arrival.

Thanks for the update. Looking forward to more of Jotul's classics coming back on line.As a global hearth manufacture many regions require different test results. This model is not for distribution in the North American market. The F-602v2 is the 2020 model and moving forward the solution for the North American market.
