    It’s a drawback but if the rest of the package makes up for it then I could live with a windowless furnace.

    For this thread... I see the word “hot” below the loading door. Pretty much English.

    Why even have a door so big when the top half is blocked with a steel plate?

    A swinging plate allows a lot more wood to be loaded than a 8" tall door opening does...but still blocks most of the smoke that rolls out the door without it. I HATE a smoky smell in the house!
    By the time she needs to be fed again, that plate is usually not all that hot...most of the time I don't even think about it if I hit it...on the occasion of loading when things are still hot I have leather BBQ pit gloves that go up to my elbow...

    Yep some lessons are taught pretty quick. It's that one time your juiced and make the mistake (burning your hand on metal) and swear to always wear gloves after that. Doesn't end there lol.

    Yeah I've been burnt in the past...but that was with the Yukon Big Jack...which was much harder to time out the loads on...and partially due to inferior design, partially due to a less than ideal install, I had to ride 'er pretty hard, so that plate was pretty hot sometimes.
    The Tundra doesn't have one and there was a few times that I wished for one...reloading on a pile of coals and the weather was just such that the chimney draft was not keeping all the smoke in the firebox...can't load fast enough in that scenario! ;lol

    The front looks like a Kuuma to me. You however have a Kuuma struck through on your signature line.

    ;lol I definitely over-thought that! I was thinking it was some HTML/computer code for some word. I guess I should have looked more closely at the pics.

    Did you sell your old stove? Are you using this one full time now?

    I sold the Kuuma VF200 that I was using last winter, the Tundra is still sitting in the garage...I am going to take it to my co-worker who is a certified high pressure steam welder to have the cracks repaired before I sell it.
    Yes, 24/7 as needed.

    So I was kinda right! Is there a large difference in heat output with the plenum? Of course the firebox is a little larger too.
