I did run a AK180 with one briefly. It works fine but you will need a 5"er. I continue to run a Pocono off of one but it enjoys a weekly look at. I was a big fan but continual maintenance soured me and I connected my bigger stove to a chimney. If you can, do the same.

I don't have a chimney, the only thing I could do is put a stainless steel chimney up the side of my house. Would I still have to use the power vent if I did that? My other question is.... does the power vent run constantly even when the stove isn't calling for heat?
