It is replacing my 10yr old Whitfield Profile 30 free standing wood pellet stove. After talking with Mike at M/M and seeing the Leisure Line stoves and then reading the comments here I stopped my search for a new wood pellet stove and switched to coal.
I did have a question, about how long would a 50 bag of coal last in the Pioneer if it was just running on low just to keep the fire going?
Depending on how low you have the min set. Between 7-11lbs/day coal to maintain a fire. Also depends on coal quality.
