Anyone have a Jotul 507?

Anyone have a Jotul 507 or have any experience with one? I just bought one for my shop and was wondering what size coal works best. I'm thinking nut but with all this expertise and experience on this site, I'd rather hear from someone what works best. Thanks.

Show us a photo of the stove, firebox and grate. That will help, there may be other makes of stoves that share the same design but not the name, a photo would help identify them.

WOW!

That's a GREAT looking stove!
I love the "classic" old time look!

What year was it manufactured?

That thing should be good with nut or stove. That is one big casting, wow!

I would think that thing was watching me. :shock:

Nice looking stove, what's up with two upper doors?? The lowest door has to be the ash pan door, does the middle door open into the side of the firebos, for easier cleaning maybe?? Is the upper or middle door for loading?

I'd still like to see a photo of the firebox and grates.
Do you attach the handle to the stub under the second door for shaking the grates?

Yes, I bought the stove from Bruce at Hearth.com. I don't have it yet. I'm going to pick it up on Saturday. He's in the Poconos and I'm about 3 hours south in northern Maryland. I'll post some photos when I get it.
Not a 100% sure about the doors yet. As you said, the bottom is definatley the ash pan and I'm thinking the midddle door is access to clean or to make starting the fire easier. It's a deep fire box so toop for loading her up. Can burn wood also but I don't intend to. I think I'll start out with some nut coal.

Darn! I missed it!
If he's in the Poconos, he lives right in MY area!

I look forward to the pics!

I bid on one a few months ago on ebay and it went to around $600.00. Too rich for me. That stove was really pristine. Bruce's doesn't look quite so nice but it's going in my shop so I don't care that much.

The top door is the loader, the middle shows the side of the grate and the bottom is the ash door.

Thanks everyone for all the info. Once I get it hooked up, I'll post some feed back. It's replacing a smoke belching Fisher Mamma bear that takes up way too much room and gets my shop too hot even on a low burn.

I saw it. It came on after I had already made the deal. It's at &71.00 right now. I'll be interested to see where it sells. The last one jumped up in the last 3 minutes to around $600.00.

That's an amazing amount of money for a 25+ year old stove in dubious condition.

I remember back in the late 70's when they were in the Jotul brochures. I thought it was a neat stove, but all we had in southern Indiana were the Jotul wood burners, which were very highly regarded back then.
