Go to Hitzer.com and see what the dimensions are.. the hitzer stove has a great following on the forum,, just use the search box in the upper right corner of the page and type in 'Hitzer' and hang on to your hat !!
Hi Greg, When I first bought my 50-93, seams to me it ment the hopper held 50 pounds of coal, and was rated at 93,000 BTU(under rated). Seams the literature said 95,000 BTU. The following year I bought the 30-95. I believe the 30 stood for hopper capacity. But the "(95") ???????? Then again, they both go through the same amount of coal. If not, it's very very close. I noticed dumping the same size pail of coal in each one at tending time. So, they must be creating the same amount of BTU's. The 50-93, with it's bigger heat exchanger, will blast you with a wall of heat. Where as the 30-95, with it's smaller heat exchanger, lets more heat up the chimney. That's why I've mentioned in the past that a 30-95 may be a good choice for poor drawing chimneys. The 30-95 is capable of throwing lots of heat. The 50-93 is capable of taking your breath away. Now I see 50-93 is rated in the 100,000BTU range. Other HITZER stoves ??????????????????? Can only give you my experience. Oliver
