I have heated with wood (& coal for a short while) for most of my life as a primary source of heat. (Including processing ALL of my own cord wood.) I am currently in the market for a new wood stove. I also have been a non-registered fan of this site, as well as a few others, pertaining to all aspects of wood heat. What I am saying is this. I am not a "newbie" by any twist of the imagination. (I will also add that I am a Professional Firefighter, Fire Inspector, and Paramedic.) My question is this.. Why are VOGELZANG STOVES so bad. Please, be specific. I have done a search on this and many other sites and no-one will give specifics. I am looking very closely at purchasing a VOGLEZANG DEFENDER (model # TR001, EPA cert. @ 4.21 G/Hr) and/or the VOGLEZANG HIGHLANDER (model TR003, EPA cert 5.76 G/Hr). This corp. states that both stoves are EPA certified and are "Safety tested to UL standards 1482-1998 and ULC 5629." ( I understand that the Underwriters Lab. /ULC didn't nessessarily test this specific stove.) I sincerely request your feedback on these particular stoves. Your information will greatly be appreciated!
