Bought from Machine Mart as workshop stove and used as a space heater for two rooms.
We light it and bring it up to temperature and then let it burn down as the workshop is well insulated. It uses about 25 small logs per day. It can take a log 4 x 3 inch by about 1 foot long. It has no fire bricks so the outside gets very hot. I had to double line the wall it sits against with fire board. It will melt plastic objects left too close to it even if they are not in contact so a big guard is required. Chimney is a 5 inch stove pipe which radiates heat until it enters twin wall insulation to go through the roof. The roof also had to modified because even the twin wall gets extremely hot.
It’s easy to clean out because it is just wood and it burns very efficiently, we clean it out once a week. It is useful in a workshop for getting rid of small amounts of wood waste. It is easy to light, we just use newspaper and kindling, it doesn’t need lighters.
It is also possible to boil a kettle or cook on top of it, the heat is controllable if you close the chimney flap but if it is closed too much all the smoke comes back down the chimney.
It is very basic but great in a power cut and does exactly what we want it to, I would fit another one in the same situation.
We order a ton of briquettes once each winter which helps to supplement our wood burning boiler. It is a really useful fuel for slow burning and maintaining a constant high heat over a long period of time. The briquettes are clean, very dry and consistent. The supply and delivery service from Argyll Woodfuels is excellent and very convenient from initial email requesting a price to delivery right to our shed.
