I'd vote for buck when the unit needs to work hard. Rice might be ok in the summer.

Rice, buck/rice mix, or buck is fine. Rice is ideal for periods of low demand, buck is ideal if the stoker is going to be pushed real hard. If you are just running the stoker at 4-6 teeth, it probably won't care.

Post reply, then scroll down and click on the "Upload attachment" tab. Scroll down more and click on "choose file". Browse and select your .jpg photo. Then click on add the file. It will add the photo to the post. You have to click "Preview" to see it in your post.

There maybe other ways, but this is how I do it.

Nice looking stoker. When do you plan to have it installed and running?
