Harman Mark I question

PostBy: RIArmySGT On: Tue Jul 09, 2013 9:02 pm

So I just bought a Harman mark 1 brand new in box for 800, they said it was a seasonal left over. From what i read on harman website it says it gets a 24 Hr burn time? I find that hard to believe. Anyone have and experience with them. Thanks in advance.

I have a mark 1 it is an awesome little stove. When we ran ours we would fill it up on a saturday afternoon, leave for the night, return Sunday afternoon more than 24 hours later and it would still be going . this was with it turned way down though, the stove does great and throws great heat with 12 hour shakedowns, you got a great deal, enjoy it.

My house is about 1000sq ft with an open floor plan the kitchen is a balcony, which you look over you will see the stove. Had an old wood stove and that thing would heat this house up to 80, but its old and drafty, couldn't really regulate the heat it in.

If you have a good drafting chimney and you set it right, you can see 24 hrs from a Mk I.

I think my best time was 22 hrs but that was just when I chickened out and just HAD to tend it. :)

I have a Mark III and recently brought a Mark I. My daily average burn on the Mark III is 12 hours because of my schedule; it's just easier for me to service the stove then. I bet push comes to shove it could go 15 hours or so with no problem. If I am traveling, I pack the firebox with pea coal, set the air down low and go. My longest burn with the Mark III is 38 hours. We left with the house at 65* and it was at 65* when we got back. There was even a couple of more hours of fuel left. Try that with a wood stove.

I fully expect to get the same level of performance out of the Mark I once I learn its nuances. Good luck, Lisa
