  1. I would like to 1200 sq. ft. My old pellet stove was rated 50000 btu and did fine for heat output.
  2. I have been wanting a free standing wood stove with a glass front in our living room for ambiance and good hot heat. Those with experience please share your brand/model recommendations. Thanks, Dan
  3. What brand of pellets are these?
  4. What stove do you have? It sounds lots better than mine.
  5. I have had a US Stove 6039HF for 15 years. It has a lousy heat exchanger and needs to be cleaned often or you are wasting a lot of heat. I have added aluminum heatsinks to the top of the heat box which helped quite a bit in efficiency. I have had to replace a couple of motors and it is finicky if burning straight corn. It is also very loud with 4 motors running. We took it out of the house 4 years ago and I put it in my shop. I do miss the hot heat in the house versus Forced Air heat though. It does ok out in my shop, but I was shocked how much a cheap 5KW electric heater outperforms it in speed of getting my shop warmed up by several hours. Oh and one other important thing. I almost had a house fire or at least major smoke damage because of a design flaw. My auger sits right above the burn box and one time I shut it off and it ignited the wood in the auger and then back into the hopper. Most stoves drop the pellets 6 inches or so to prevent this. I had shut it off and left to get a haircut. I came back 30 minutes later and there was white smoke pouring out of my pellet stove exhaust. I had to rig up power to keep the exhaust running to keep the smoke from filling my house. Glad I came back home. If I could figure out a good way to get a wood stove into my current house, that is what I would do. Ambiance and good hot heat and I have more dying or dead ash than I know what to do with.
  6. Keenserts are a really good product, but have not used them in your application..
  7. I just spread a 1/2 ton of dry fertilizer tonight for my first time. Is it going to be a problem leaving fertilizer dust on my tractor for a couple of weeks before I can get it washed off? Thanks, Dan
  8. Windy enough, but no rain here until tomorrow. We got it all finished up today.
  9. No problem running that. As a kid, I ran my Briggs 11 HP with as much as 50% diesel just screwing around for a few lawn mowings. Once it got hot, it ran it ok and I never had to replace the plug, so you'll be fine.

    New Job

    Keeping the power on for a nice small town of 800, and assisting the street and sewer department employees. Can range from pole work to mowing. They even have a Farmall A with a mid mount sickle bar for ditch mowing. I am really looking forward to being out of the factory and off of the cement.
