I see you have a vf3000 and a tlc2000. Are they heating different spaces? As for the "super" magnum, the jury is still out on that one as far as I'm concerned. I'd buy a usued regular mag stoker. They are bullet proof and proven. I haven't seen a super mag in action yet but I heard rumors it was not so super.

The Super Magnums use the same plastic gears as the carpet drive pellet stoves. Even sticking/too long pellets strip those gears - don't ask me how I know. Earlier Mags are bullet proof. Save your money. However, Harman are fielding 10,000 repair men to fix that problem if it occurs in the field so your investment is safe ............................................... AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA, I slay myself. Idiots.
