Hyfire is a BEAST and if that dont put out the heat needed nothing else short of a full blown boiler/furnace would have (yet if its to much you will be able to step back to use as a single burner stove if needed )! Ive never been an advocate of buying "used" stokers (just to many variables, blowers, fans, electronics, censors, etc. that "could" need replacing or at the very least serious cleaning, oiling and reassembling)...If their was ever a stove type that warrants a warranty its a coal stoker stove! BUT... on a good note for you is the fact that #1 the company Leisure line Stoves is hands down the best in terms of fairness, kindness and sincere help to ALL its customers (even those who buy their used units) and they don't "gouge" customers on spare part prices, their business model is based on simply, quality, functional heat cost & money savings via a quality USA built product line... (NOT "gouging" for spare part orders to a million stove owners and discontinuing product lines to reduce overhead while making profits off spare parts of previous customers) #2 plenty of people on this forum have a ton of experience with this stove, its parts, its routine and its maintenance so even if you have to do a few things to get her up and running you will have plenty of help, ideas & assistance here to do it!
Please make a new thread with photo's of the stove, your set up area and the questions you will surly have... called "my new/used Hyfire II getting started" , also i suggest you send Leisure Line Stove Company your name, address, model #, email and make them aware you purchased this stove from Mr. XYZ so they can place you in their database.
