Hitzer Factory Tour.

PostBy: EarthWindandFire On: Thu Aug 09, 2012 3:22 pm

I was using some of my quality time at work and viewing YouTube videos about coal stoves. I stumbled upon a great video by Andy Lee Graham (aka the Hobo Traveler) of the Hitzer factory in Berne Indiana. He's got a neat blog as well.

Just type in "Hitzer Stoves in Berne Indiana" on YouTube and enjoy the tour from the comfort of your Easy Chair!

Pretty cool! Didn't realise they made hand pumps too. Looks like a nice operation for the size of the place. I had envisioned a larger shop because lots of people have these but they look like they are keeping up with demand.

Looks like a nice operation. Big enough to keep up, small enough to have responsive service. I had a model 82 Hitzer in our last house, it was a nice stove.
