Hello everyone, first time poster.
I have a Vigilant 1C that I burn wood in and throw Alaskan sub-bit in with the loads. I also have a Jotul 507 that I haven't installed yet but am lookiing at doing this comign summer. My house is about 2000sqft and 2 stories - its very hard to get the heat to stay downstairs but thats another story
I am looking at purchasing a stove that will allow me to be away for about twelve hours without reloading, but it seems all the stokers around don't run with sub-bit coal. Dealers in Alaska are able to get Harman, Hitzer, Jotul, and US Stoves . I am leaning toward something like the Harman Magnafire SF, like the hot water option, looks, simplicity, btus, and seemingly good burn times. Any experienced opinions on a similar situation?
