Get the larger stove. You can get it down to 20 pounds per day and up to 60 in the cold weather and save almost 1000 to buy. At 24 below you need the bigger stove, especially in the basement.

I would say if in good shape ,, I'd go for it at 800 bucks ... but that's just me, Mr. Adventure lol

The stove should last 15-20+ yrs.

For some reason I was also thinking it had a blower. If not, your offer is prob. more in line.

Hmmmm,

Interesting thread. Here I have one for sale here that is as new used lightly for one season and has the optional fan and nobody suggests my stove. Great place to advertise.

I was going to suggest it, but then saw that your listing is locked...which is supposed to indicate the item is no longer available. Are you saying your stove is still for sale?

This morning I decided I will just hang onto it as it will always sell at that price but thanks for noticing. It is no longer for sale. I do recommend the stove though and good luck with the search. When I am looking for a new stove I always search members posts first, I recommend the practice. A 2008 stove may be interesting but those front grates can easily warp in the hands of a non expert so there goes the price difference in a blink of an eye. If you can afford it I would buy new and yes, do get the optional fan.

For a 1,000 square foot house + basement, I'd recommend the 50-93.. You could probably get by with the 30-95 during a normal winter, but after this antarctic winter we just went through, I'd lean on the safe side and get the 50.

During the spring and fall, you'll be able to control and idle the stove alittle better if you burn pea coal. Run nut or a mix of pea/nut in the winter.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I'd also love to help you out with the purchase! We sell Hitzer all over New York! 50-93 with blower and black door is $1650 :)

There is nothing wrong with the models, but my concern is when you say about ducting the heat. If you are going to duct it, you need sheet metal plenum and fan to blow the air threw the duct, and how do you hook that onto the 30-95 or 50-93. I've seen a lot of posts where that is a big issue and it is generally a mess. Get the 82 FA unit, you can duct it and has a fan and a thermostat. If you get the standard 82 you can build a sheet metal heat collector with duct work and send it to the first floor how you like, and have left overheat to warm the basement and floors. The 82's are made to be the basement model's and can do furnace or just space heating, where ducting the heat around with a 50-93 or 30-95 is tough.

Ok I'm going with the the 50-93 thanks guys, I'm gonna forget the forced air idea, I will just put a large fan in the cold air return and blow the cold air out of my house and into the basement, and draw the heat in with negative pressure sound good? Also something I was thinking of my hot water tank is using the chimney as well will this be an issue? Edit. Should I look into dampers? What type and explain them i read a lot about baro and other I don't understand what each one does differently and google is not helping. Thanks so much guys
