This has got to be the biggest bed of coals I've seen in a free stander! (I know.This is coming from an itsy bitsy Surdiac 513 member) But seriously, this thing looks like it would run 2 days with no attention. Are there any other stoves out there that hold this much? Mama Mia!

I think our big KingOHeat will hold around 150 pounds or maybe more.
Cant take a good picture unless I hold my iPhone too close to the fire, but the bed of coals can be quite deep inside the barrel of the stove.
It can run for a couple of days, but it prefers to be tended once or twice a day for a nice even fire.
We will start it up sometime in November, as its still pretty warm here on Cape Cod until around Thanksgiving.
We have two of them, so if we have a problem with one, we fire the other up.
You can see the approx level from the picture, tho we tend to run it at different levels depending on the weather and draft.

Whoa! 150LBS ? You can actually put 3 bags of coal in that thing, and it will burn efficiently through all those layers? And almost 2 days of burns without any tending? (Now I'm very jealous).

I dont know how much the bags hold, (perhaps 40 lbs?), but about 3 buckets if we plan to be away for a while.
Though when we are home we never fire it with more than a couple of buckets, as it can smother if its not done right with the draft. I guess about 50 to 75 lbs?

We used to go up to Boston for Thanksgiving Thursday mornings early with family and come home Saturday night and it would be still burning, but needing tending right away. The ash would build up greatly.
Amazingly these 2 stoves have different burning rates, and different idiosyncrasies so we have to take care of their 'wishes'.

Our neighbours here know if the power goes out, as it does frequently in our area, that they can always come over and get warm.
And we now have 2 generators, so that helps too. Bring beer!

Finally!

After having contributed to various threads and enjoyed others speaking about their individual experiences, I can now speak from experience as well. Had it not been for this forum, I may have never considered burning coal...Even after creating a long running thread about the Hitzer Stove Company, there were not many options for obtaining local coal. But, that has changed.. with Wilson Coal right up the road from me, and my ability to pick up my own coal in my Tundra.

Thanks to their display, knowledge and queering this forum once again, I made the decision to purchase a DS 1500 Circulator stove. Not sure why there are so many comments on how difficult it is to start a coal fire...but, having been a wood burner for so long, I simply start it with kindling...add some coal...then some more...and load it up before I go to bed. Needless to say, I am going to be burning coal the rest of my life!

THANK YOU all for sharing your knowledge and passion!
