The 60 hour burn time is very optimistic in my opinion.I have let it go 36 hours but it wasn't putting out much heat. It can burn wood but I haven't tried it yet. I bought it from SOS Stoves in Mansfield NJ.http://www.sosstoves.com/?coal
They were very helpful and did everything they said when they said they would.Where are you located? Chris
Thanks for the website, I'll check it out tomorrow. We're from Hardyston, New Jersey. We're looking forward to burning coal, but we just can't seem to find the right stove.

I would say 24 hrs at a very low temp, but in really cold weather when you'r running it at 250-300* or more, you really need to shake down/reload every 12 hrs , for an easy reload. It's a great stove & will burn wood fine too, but it's still a hand-fired & needs to be fed regularly!
That's what I'm doing with wood right now, and it would be great if I had the option to use some of the leftover wood I have at the moment but still be able to burn any coal that I buy.
