what is the diffrrence between the stoker design on the kaa-2 and the ka-6. i am leaning towards the kaa-2 because i only have a 1200square foot house and the ka-6 would be over kill. i just dont want to have any problems with this coal stove.

the only thing i noticed in the data list is under stoker data the kaa2 hase one grate and the ka-6 has three grates and that the ka-6 hold more water. i just want to know what he diffrece is in the stoker design, just wondering if the might have cheaped out on the kaa-2

The KAA-2 stoker appears to be one of their stokers used in their stoker stoves. I say that based on pictures of the KAA-2 posted on the forum. If in fact it is then it has one motor to run the coal feed and a separate motor/blower for the through the grate air. The KA-6 stoker uses an oil burner motor to turn a fan and drive a gear box that in turn feeds the coal down the grate. The KA-6 has a small blower mounted to it to supply a small amount of constant airflow through the grate. Should that small blower fail on the KA-6 it should not result in the fire going out during cold weather use but it may lower the overall efficiency a little. The KA-6 stoker is all steal and cast iron in its construction. It is my opinion that the KA-6 is a more durable design, but thats just my opinion.

I too read the data sheet . It does say the KAA-2 has one grate. I ordered a brand new KAA-2. Just so everyone knows , it came with three grates , not one.

It appears that updating their web site is not high on the priority list at Keystoker. Either they changed the design of the KAA-2 at some point or it was a misprint from the start. The KA-4 continues to be listed and it has not been made for a few years now.
