  • I'm looking for a replacement for this stove

    Elizabeth 5 years ago

    I've not been pleased by this stove, it gets through a lot of wood for low heat output. It's set into a fireplace under a lintel so heat escape and air circulation are good but none-the-less... []

    Stove expert replied: Having a stove set into a fireplace can restrict air flow, might be worth investing in a stove fan that is driven but heat generated as this would move the heat into the room.

    Upon first installation we were extremely unhappy. Huge amounts of wood were burnt which roared away with no heat output. Lowering the stove and bringing it forward did not help. A third visit... []

  • Stay away from it!

    Barry 3 years ago

    WASTE OF MONEY! DO NOT BUY! Cons 1. Air flow sometimes works 2. Fire bricks don't work well and are extremely fragile 3. Back plate is all mangled, so as I work with steel, took it out straightened it, strengthened it and put it back in. Very thin metal for a stove 4.need bigger box size 5.flue damper is loose and handle has come off 6. No proper heat due to many reasons 7. Air wash lever is fiddly and loose and no proper feel that u are adjusting when sliding 8. Bottom vents are loose fiddly 9. Very uncontrollable 10. Adjustment levers get very hot 11. Everything on chimney is loose and chimney slides up 12.not really good value Pros 1. Good finish 2. Easy to light 3. Lightweight and easy to take down 4. Good ash bed design 5. Good glass Overall I am a hunter who lives in a log cabin in Scotland that needs reliable stove. Not up to scratch. Disappointed. That will mean that I will never buy a hunter stove as long as I live! DO NOT BUY! ... []

    Stove expert replied: The flue should be fixed, this needs to be attended to immediately. The stove will not be controllable if it is not installed correctly, urgent action required. Conflicting information when you say good finish but then air wash fiddly, fire bricks extremely fragile, bottom vents are loose fiddly etc

    Bob 8 years ago

    Overall a good stove: very nice looking and seems well made. Lights well and burns well (this may be more down to flue than stove). However the factory finish wasn't great (paintwork not properly... []
