    well i can only weigh in on this year so far, but my pelpro has had no issues, burns great and puts out tons of heat and i couldn't be happier.

    She says its a pp60. Like I said, no issues with the pelpro and they've burned a little over 3 tons so far this year. Good luck in your research.

    Cool. Is that able to keep up with heating the whole house or do they use the furnace too? The pp60 is rated to only heat up to 1500 sqfeet but my house is only around 1100

    They have an old, chopped up (multiple additions) 1 1/2 story house w/o much insulation. They have fuel oil as a back-up, but yes the stove does a nice job of heating the whole house which is probably 15-1600 sq ft. Ceiling fans help move the air around. All I know is it puts out a lot more heat than my 25 pah. And no parts have been replaced yet. We've replaced ash pan gasket, combustion blower motor, door gasket, vacuum switch and now we have a squeal coming from someplace. Haven't figured that one out yet..its intermittent. Since September we've had too many issues to count. We've tried to make this work because of putting new holes in the wall to hook up something else, but honestly I think I want to return this stove because we have never gotten hot in here. We have a large home that's relatively open, well insulated (it's in the new part of the house) and about 67* is as good as it gets. We've tried many different pellets and changed venting, pretty much everything we can think of and nothing has improved. I will say englander has covered all the replacement parts under warranty and the techs are very nice and try to help us out, but u get tired of working on a stove every weekend. My husband was working out of town during the worst of the problems but every weekend he had to come home and work on the thing. When u buy new u expect it to work, at least for a season or so I would think. Anyway, I'm pretty much resigned there will be something different in here next year just haven't had the time or desire to set on hold for a few hours yet.

    That's what she said is on the back. I'm telling ya when we fired it up it burns like a blast furnace. Nice bright white ish flame. It's vented into a chimney with a stainless liner. She says they have it set on 3 or 4, runs 24/7, uses 2 bags a day. The house is right about 70*. A little less upstairs but they use an Eden pure heater in their room. I know it's one notch down from the biggest one menards sells. I forgot to add earlier the Pah also has a new control board, so basically we've rebuilt our "new" Englander stove.

    Around here American wood fibers is the easiest to get, they've also used some from home depot they may have been from Michigan but didn't like those quite

    Hi, just my 2 cents: I have PP-130, I think only difference to the PP-60 is the bin size. Anyway, 1600 sq.ft. house including the cellar with two finished bedrooms-unit is in cellar-heats upstairs fine in this split level but sleeping, my desk in cellar bedroom less by 6 F than upstairs.
    For my first unit I can only say its okay, I wish I could turn it down some but I only want 65 F at the most upstairs. I am averaging 1 bag a day in this MA winter.
    One thing I don't like is that it will not turn itself back on if power goes out like yesterday when I was doing circuit breaker I.D. routine, as always misslabled.
