Review of Greenheart 5 workshop stove

great value for money

Greig Fensome 10 years ago

I needed a fairly large stove to heat my workshop that I didn't need to keep feeding every 20mins. Although it was recommended that I use a 20kw stove to heat my 10000ft3 workshop the no.5 supplies more than enough heat. I can put a load in in the morning, open it up fully for 30mins of intense heat and then turn it down and this will keep burning until lunch time. I use sawdust logs and hardwood offcuts which prolongs the heat but I chuck pretty much any waste in it (except MDF of course). The space is pretty well insulated so the heat from one load can keep the workshop warm nearly all day! Highly recommended for a workshop of a similar size.
