you got it. In fact the Vigll never got overfired for shure The average temp. was more in the 400*/450*F. But these stoves can run on a steady 500*-650*F without any problem. Once again, the sides base back (SBB for the V2 pros), the swing out ash pan and lid, top load or front, thermostat control...are among the best things to get on an anthracite stove.
I still imagine the grates having a sort of rake under it and moving on with a cam link connected to the grate system. In fact it would do about the same as the slicing job but at the same time of the regular shaking. Maybe in an other life
