Has anyone heard of Pine Barren Stoves?

PostBy: jotuler On: Sat Jun 14, 2008 6:47 am

I have an opporntunity to buy a slightly used Pine Barren Stove for $1200. I have been able to find scant information on the company let alone the unit. Its constructed of plate steel and firebrick with a double grate. It looks like it will hold 40+/- lbs. At the top there is a row of tubes and a tempature controled blower system. I have no photos at this time, will post when available. ANY info would be helpful. Thanks. :?

Did you try a seach on Google?? I've not heard of it,, can you compare it to the photos on the forum of say, the Harman Mark series or other hand feed stoves??
$1200 sounds pretty high... ususally used products should sell for around 1/2 of a new product.. BUT this 'rule' does not apply when new products are in short supply and the market is strong.. like now,, new coal appliances are 4-8 months behind for delivery and used ones for sale stay on the market for a day or two, at most..

A new Mark II or Mark III costs about 1500-1800 I think... so unless your Pine Barren stove is like new,, well I guess I'd check around some more.. but if it is exactly what you want/need... then it might be your only chance for a used coal burner..

Look at the Harman website too.. for hand feed coal burning stoves..

Hope this helps Greg L

Yea, I thought it was kinda steep myself. I am resurrecting a jotul 507 that I bought new about 20 years ago to warm the most active end of the house and was looking for a stove to heat the basement (open unfinished layout), and to keep the first floor warm (warm floor warm house). I have googled the stove and and only found a general company listing (a basic description of the company) but nothing about the products they sell. I can find nothing on specs or performance for the stove. (The previous 2 sentences should be all the info I need in the decision to buy the the stove, which logically shoud be no.) Still, the unit looks good.
As far as the sugestion to compare it to Harman, I would guess a mark II or III except that the grates run front to back and there is no visual though the door (solid). The blower sits on the back of the unit.

A side topic: In one of the forums listings a question was asked about the air adjustment on the top door (there are 3 doors) of a jotul 507. It was, and still is my understanding that the vent was for a secondary burn of any gasses. FYI

I have several weeks berfore the deal can take place, so I have time to look.

Thanks

The jotul 507 is an awesome little stove. I use one in my shop. To bad they don't make that model anymore.

Amen to that coalkirk. When I did burn the 507 20 years ago it provided a richness of warmth that only coal can provide.

You can get a Harman Mark I new for slightly more then the price for that stove, plus you will eliminate a lot of headaches if you need parts, etc.

The Mark I holds about 40 lbs. of coal, and it can really crank out the heat.

Just a suggestion! :D
