Jotul 507

PostBy: Dann757 On: Wed May 19, 2010 7:15 pm

I found one of those Jotul 507 tall coal stoves, but the guy wants $600 for it. Seems too expensive, but I haven't seen any for sale either. I wonder if anybody has any experience with this particular model. I'd like to find out about BTU's, capacity, burn times, etc. I thought it would fit in my small place better than the big ole Monticello I'm using.

Hi Dan, Back in the mid 1980's I had a Red 507 and I wish I still had that stove !! In December I made the trip to Freddy's and picked up a Green 507 that had been used hard but the price was under $200. :roll:
The Jotul burns anthracite very well and it is not dusty at all. We just let the 507 go out on 5-17-2010. The average coal use was about 150-160# a week heating 1,300 sq/ft in the dead of winter. This spring when we shut the Gibraltar down we heated 3,000+ sq/ft with the 507. Stove temp this spring was about 200-250* F for the day time and 400-500* F for the night.
I have located another 507 just 300 yds from our house and they are not looking for much $$$ for it. :D
For the winter of 2010-2011 we would like to heat the house with 3 Jotuls and sell our Gibraltar DDI.
The 507 will go 12 hours @ 400* F but in the very cold weather it likes 8 hours on a load & shake.
I think they put out about 45,000-50,000 BTU's....

Wow,
Thanks for the info.! Do you have the dimensions? I don't think the guy I found is going to sell that green one for $600. Doesn't seem to need to sell it though. Very tempting.

Hi Dan, The 507 is 32" Tall
30 1/2" to the top of the exhaust flue
at the base of the stove it is 11 1/2" deep by 12 1/2" wide.
I think this stove is about 250 lbs.

I would like to have this stove re-porcelained but I am not sure who does this type of work....

Sweet! I have three Jotul's. One red 507b and two green 507 & 507b. The red 507b and the green 507 heat my house while the other green one heats my shop. Looks like your starting a Jotul collection. How are the cast and brick in your new addition? The draft control on the two 507's you have are a much better design than the draft controls on the 507b's. Don't know why they changed, wished they handn't. Anyway, nice find, congrats.
