Have not run stove for a year and half, renovating houses, and moving. Any way, moved my Pioneer into barn/shop, cleaned it up, installed using power vent. Fired it up, running like a champ-pumping out the heat-5 years old and runs like new. No place like home! Power vent takes a
little getting used to. I am impressed with the simplicity of these stoves and the reliability of the stoker. Wet coal, fines, etc, it just
feeds and burns with no complaint. Houses are on gas at this point, so the barn/green house is the last heating frontier for me.
Boiler or furnace, I am undecided- what I do know- it will be a LL product.
