Does this model stove have any value? I mean, does it compare to a Harman or another high quality stove? Certainly is is worth something.
Is it difficult to operate? It doesn't look very user friendly IMO.
Also, the hopper is broke in two pieces and appears to be unrepairable. The hopper is cast iron. It sits inside the stove. The model in the image appears to be the smaller of the two. I believe the 713 is 25% bigger.. this is the 515 .
Where can I find a hopper without paying the value of the stove?
I just sold a Surdiac model MCK 628, the internals are the same, but the cabinet is different, mine was like new, it is a fine stove, my wife did not like the way you had to shake it, you had to use a flat bar and insert it in the slots below the firebox and work it side to sdie, worked fine but dusty, If you have to buy the stove, I would go with a stove with the shaker grate handle on the outside of the stove similiar to the Harmans and the Hitzer, where are you located, I know where you can get a new 30-95 Hitzer at a good price in Pittston PA
