First Season with LL

PostBy: Flyer5 On: Tue May 04, 2010 7:29 pm

Well we made it through our first season as the new owners of Leisure Line Stove Co. I would like to say Thank You to everyone who has supported us in this adventure . We have met a lot of great people and look forward to meeting more as we progress in business . There have been some challenges and sacrifices to say the least . But our terrific customers and dealers really make it worth while . I am looking forward to the next season and can't wait to help a few more people keep there heating costs down and away from foreign oil . Thanks you , Dave .


I am sure Matt feels the same way :D .

As a matter of fact I do! :) Let me also add that without the great many sacrifices that Jerry (and Karen) made in creating the business we would not be here, Thanks Jer (and Karen)!

Good luck!! I know you will do well. What are your plans for the future? Ever consider making a very small coal stoker? I've got a sun room that if I put a current stoker in it would be to hot to tolerate and space would be tight. something smaller in the future? maybe 30 or 40K input?

I can't speak for LL but I think the issue becomes that smaller doesn't actually mean cheaper especially since you probably wouldn't have a lot of demand for them. If you look at the Econo it's only about $2175 and has 70KBTU, you can get a HyFire2 for $3125 and it has 180K BTU which is more than a 150% gain in BTU output for only 50% more cost than the Econo. You wouldn't save that much on a smaller model, the only benefit over the Econo would be a smaller package. Since it's a stoker you should be able to use the Econo in a small area.

Perhaps that's good question for LL, how small a room can you go?

First season of a many decade run, we all hope! :up: 8-)

Companies like yours are few & far between nowadays - you could say they have become a thing of the past. Kudos to you guys for carrying on in a good way, instead of the greedy way. Without even looking at what your selling, I'd still buy a stoker from you guys just based on positive word of mouth, even if I knew nothing of your products. I'd have no problem supporting a GOOD company.

Hopefully my financial situation will improve & allow me to do so! ;)

Indeed! That is a good question! In my case it's physical size and even the Econo is just physically to big. My porch is long but very slender and there is just no need for that high of an output or size... I wonder if LL would custom build one.. worth Asking! I think I'll post that question!

Thanks for the Idea!!
