I am looking at the Hearth model. Why is the blower a 212 cfm when larger stoves are 265 cfm?

Hi,
The 212 blower is a flat blower and will not intrude into the fireplace. The 265 extends out the back of the stove about 11" and would cause the stove to extend out from the fireplace a ways. Some people plate off the front of the fireplace and that would cause a problem. Good question.
Thanks,

Is this the reason you can not find a coal stoker insert

IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET THE BIGGER FAN? THE CLEARANCE IS NOT AN ISSUE.

We could special build a model with twin 265 cfm fans, but remember bigger fans don't make more heat. The reason we don't make coal stoker inserts, there is not enough room in the fireplaces for the hopper and ash pan. The average fireplace measures 29" high, hard to install a hopper, burner, and ash pan and then have enough room to hook up a pipe in a small opening. You would need to stand there with a coffee can of coal to keep in going.
