Hi, I have googled this question and no one seems to have an answer. My choices are to drive 2 and 1/2 hours each way and buy a used Auburn that a gal said she would take $600 for. Or I can buy a refurbished Prescott for $1400 including shipping! That's kind of a big selling point for me since I have to borrow a girlfriends pickup, load it, drive back and unload it, and then hope there's nothing wrong with it if I buy the cheaper Auburn. Ugh.
I was really hoping for an Auburn, but what's the difference between the two?

Thank you.

They look almost the same but run very different. Auburn is multi-fuel and no igniter, whereas the Prescott is mainly a pellet stove and lights on it's own. Both are great stoves once you learn how to clean them well.
