I'm not familiar with the heavyweights.

Aw shucks UG now I am turning red. It's a heavyweight as it has a heavy job. BTW, I operate a Pocono as well that is in year 7 and I am very happy with it.

Can only say that I'm happy with my Keystoker 160, wasn't much to choose from in my area. I'd say from what I have read here over the years that any will treat you as well as you treat them. Every stove requires some time & effort & if your willing to give it you'll be rewarded with good long cost saving heat. :)

The Keystoker I have is the 2nd one I've owned. Both had issues when I first got them, both used. Both were fixed with some patients and this site. I think it was more or less issues with the stoves not being taken care of prior.

I would buy another any day if I was looking for another stoker.

Again, agreements all around. My Keystoker 90 is giving me a few issues now but only because I have been sloppy in servicing. I did have a hopper fire and that burnt the corner of the feed chute. I guess it just needs a full service this summer. In my application, if I could find a cheap 105 with a 8" top duct feed I would go for it and add a 500cfm blower --- hint hint.
