Review of ACR Oakdale

Oak dale multifuel

David Hindson 2 years ago

This fire is slow to get going and I find the ash pan too small . Have to empty 3 times a day and it does not have ash pan handle so have to empty when red hot and I burnt my finger getting it out. Not very good when burning smokleles fuel .

Stove expert replied: Regular emptying of the ashpan is recommended and different smokeless fuels will give varying amounts of ash so it is worth trying a few alternatives. The glove provided with the stove is to be used for handling the ashpan.
