Very cheap "Riteway" unit.

Wow, that is cheap. Would make a great stove for the ministry.

It would but the problem is logistics. There really isn't a steady affordable way to move units from New England to PA. If there was, Rev Larry would need more space to store everything.

a model #37, in better than average exterior condition. the original circulator panel (on the side away from the exhaust) is missing but it's easy to bend up.

the issue will be the grates and center bar, they are available but, you'd have $300.00 wrapped up in them alone.

otherwise these are heat GIANTS on coal though like all others they have a learning curve.

It's 1,000 percent better looking on the outside than the one I got for 50 bucks years ago.

The one I got looked bad, but I was able to use it for a few years. It was still useable when I sold it and purchased the Clayton that I have now.

I am keeping my eyes and ears open for a way to move units down towards Rev Larry in manner that could work out for all involved. It is a logistical quagmire even with people chipping in some cash that would defray any costs involved.

I suspect it would be better for the Stove and Heat Ministry to keep sourcing stoves on a local level and take $$$$$ donations from others to help defray the repair and installation costs for the stoves. Speaking of donations Rev Larry if you read this, how is the PAYPAL account coming?

the outside looks good, handles not rusted, so probably stored in a dry place

I am some what following what people here are trying to do with the "stove ministry", bottom line is keep the stoves going for people that need them. Has any one thought of using "Fastenal" to ship stoves. It is easier than FedEx Freight or the likes because you do not have to deal with the 42" platform height at the unload terminal. I believe Fastenal has a pallet jack and will unload off of any height , and then they load onto the TT. At a much more relaxed pace than a shipping terminal can get at times. How ever Fed Ex Freight has told me that If I can get the pallet off my pick up,, and onto there load area at that height , go for it. Just saying that Fastenal may be easier, as they will unload you, within reasonable procedure. So, if you can put any stove on a pallet and ratchet strap it solid, you are good to go, common courier. Fastenal might be better at the destination load point as well. Phone calls will give you your answers. good luck

Did you look at the unit, or are you just worried about the quality of the grates and center bar? Or can you tell just from the 3 pics? I don't know anything about these stoves...

I will be in Rev. Larry's rough vicinity in August, and could deliver, if it's in good condition and worth acquiring.

If you can check it out and give it the thumbs up, I can deliver it. I will need help loading and unloading into my pickup is all.

We can see if the seller is willing to donate it to the Stove Ministry, as well, s/he seems flexible on price.

i'm in Elkhart County Indiana. so have not looked at this stove.

condition of grates in this stove is critical, we don't want to ship a stove to R. Larry that requires $300. worth of parts to make operational.

if it clears an inspection and can be moved i'll stand by my offer to pay for the stove and cover some fuel.

feel free to PM me about it.

Can the seller take some pictures of the grates? Has anyone inquired about it ?
