My new Hitzer

PostBy: mmcoal On: Thu Sep 19, 2013 1:39 pm

It took awhile between work and family, but I finally got my stove all set up. I took down the old chimney which was sized for a fireplace and put up a new brick one with a 8" clay liner. Where the fireplace was inside I rebuilt a whole new hearth area. The stove is a Hitzer 50-93. I still need to finish up the trim around the brick inside, but that can wait a little. I still want to get a probe thermometer for the stack and in case you can't see it I have a manual pipe damper setup.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, I did it all myself. My father is a mason so I grew up learning the trade. My final inspection on everything is next week and I am really looking forward to using this stove. Now it's time to go load up on some coal! :) I have been reading up on this stove as much as I can, but can someone clarify exactly how low these 50-93 stoves can idle both in coal consumption and temps? I am debating between burning some wood I have left for the chilly days in October or just using coal. Thanks everyone, this forum offers a lot of great information.

If that hopper is removable you won't have any problems burning wood in the cuff seasons

Do yourself a favor and put some sealant on the brick that is outside. I just recoated mine with Diedrich Technologies 333, water repellant, clear breathable. Stinks going on "the smell" read the instructions but it has helped my new work from 2 years ago. My chimney cap is just like yours only the aggregate is showing on the top side after 30 years, but still strong and original, just has a little character. Coal is corrosive to mortar over time, but the only way to go by far. Nice work you should be very proud :D :D

Stove looks nice too, don't want to dis the stove by talking so much about the brick work :oops:

I like the height of your stove, up higher than most, as I am tall. And the brickwork is really nice. The only way it would look better is if it was in my house. :D

Funny you should mention it, I am most certainly going to be putting a water repellent on. I have seen all too often what water penetration at the top of the chimney does, but I was going to let everything cure up for about a month before applying anything. I elevated the stove a bit mainly because water has been a problem before in that room if the sump pump doesn't work(power outage).
