It is a high capacity stove. It will yawn sleepily at the task of heating your whole house.
It is highly reliable and easy to operate.
It has the best, cleanest and most reliable grate system.
It is air tight.
It is multi fuel. You can burn wood, soft coal or hard coal in it.
It is a common stove, Glenwood made them by the tens of thousands. There are two series of this stove. The one pictured below and the modern series that came out in 1905. They are same except for the styling.
Parts are easy to get. The only thing ever needed is grates and they are easily recast. If you operate the stove properly the grates and the stove will last until after you and me and everybody here is long dead.
They cost about as much as a new box stove.
which Glenwood Modern Oak would be the performance / capacity equal of the earlier # 40 ?
