I have a chance to buy a Hitzer 75 for around $400. I haven't driven 75 miles to look at it yet; is it worth the trip? Does anyone know anything about this model or this brand? Thanks in advance. tom

It is the predecessor of their current Model 82, which sells new for around $1000. Basically it is a large hand-fed stove, make sure it isn't rusted out and that the grates aren't warped.

Iowaboy.17, the Hitzer 75 and all of the batch fired stoves are exceptional coal burners. If its in good shape you cant go wrong.

If you get a chance post a few pics so we can see it. I would look for some of the common attributes for a good coal burner, good grates, deep firebox, good air control from the bottom. I have a hitzer 82 and it is a good stove, i would do the drive to check it out, hitzer products are pretty well made.

Thanks to all who responded re: info on a Hitzer stove. Darn thing got sold before I had a chance to look at it! Snooze and lose I guess. Thanks again though. tom
