Hitzer 30-95 Install

Hitzer 30-95 Install

PostBy: dbev On: Mon Sep 29, 2008 8:09 am

Hello All,
Just wanted to share some picture of the install from last summer. I had to add a row of tiles to the hearth so the setup would meet local codes and Hitzers recomendations. I used Heatfab pipe and a 7" to 6" thimble reducer a Fields controls black baro damper. It all went together without much trouble. I bought the 30-95 without a blower but when the owner of the shop put it on my truck he relized he had pulled out the wrong one from storage so I got a free upgrade he was to busy to get the other one out :D . I never seen this mentioned before but my came with a plug-in reostat to control the blower speed. I have fired the stove with wood to cure the paint and to heat the house, the stove performed great. Thanks to everyone on the forum for all the information. I have a lot more pictures if anybody wants to see anything in particular let me know.

Dave

Nice job Dave....it looks great and I'm sure it will provide all the heat you want. You mentioned the rheostat....did it come with the stove from Hitzer or from the stove shop?

Hello All,
Bearcreek Burnout good question about the rheostat. I found it in the firebox wrapped up with the blower, the crate was unopened so I'm pretty sure it came from Hitzer. More pictures of the inside. Before I picked up the stove I looked for the blower online, I found it here

Nice work Dave, very neatly done.


Did you screw your stove pipe together? It doesn't look it in the picture but it is a little ways a way from the pipe.

Hi Adam,
Yes, I used four screws per connection except a couple of places I just couldn't reach, in which case I used three, I used Heatfab 22 Ga pipe
nice and beefy .

I used the heat-fab pipe on my stove as well, it is great stuff. The black screws that come with it work well also. You should be very happy with your 30-95 if it burns anything like my model 82.

I fired up my model 82 Hitzer for the first time this week. A few short wood fires to season the grates and cure the paint, and a record setting (for me at least) 24 burn with 50 lbs of nut coal. As of this morning the stove had been going for 24 hours with no tending and still had a decent amount of red/orange coals visible. I have never seen a stove hold a low fire like this hitzer, much less for 24+ hours. I estimate that it will hold 80-90 lbs of nut when filled to the top of the firebrick, which should be plenty for 12-15 hour burns in the cold weather.

That's how a made-for-anthracite hand fed appliance is supposed to work!! Glad to hear it..
