I'm telling you it's amazing what they put out for heat for the amount of coal. It uses less coal per load than my cookstove and burns twice as long on a load. My guess is that these size stoves are in the 45-50k btu range.
My stove looks like the fire brick are thick...I just had the tape measure out again and the burn pot is 9 1/2" X 14" at the load door and 17 1/2" high in the sides & back. My Jotul 507s are in the 45,000 btu range and i have one burning right now. I think the Crawford may edge out the Jotul by just a bit....
We are going to fire her up in just a few minuets. I have the Jotul burning as slow as I dare and have lots of window stats open to get the house cool. The outside temp is 56* F but I cant wait to light the stove.
