That is what is on the tag on the back of the stove.When I ordered mine, I had them too weld 5/16 nuts on the back corners so I could install my own heat shield.My flue comes out the top on mine also,don't have a hopper.The sides don't get as hot as the back I don't think.Hope this help's.
thank you very much hman.
that's some crazy huge spacing.
must be meant to coincide with the mythical 8 #'s of coal per sq. ft. of grate, per hour, burn rate and 80,000 btu output. LOL
i'll get along fine.
do you have any pics of your heat shield and install ?
