Got my harman II installed with a magic heat reclaimer.
It worked wonder. The heat out put is tremendous. 75F in a 1500sqft open space while 25F outside.
I use mix fuel (wood and coal).
Put couple of fire bricks to cover about 70% of the grate surface. I left an expose area mid-section of the stove, once good-burning, fill the exposed area with coal... Nirvana...
Also ordered 1/2 ton of coal from http://www.johnnyscoal.com
in bags. Delivered for $150 (he added two extra 50lb bag).
Very decent deal, i thouhgt.
With couple extra case of shotgun shell and a pallet of instant noodle, I am ready for 2012...
