Hi, I have owned two different pellet stoves and enjoyed them both. I would say most of the ones out there right now all work well, the only thing I would suggest is to get one with the automatic lighting feature. My 1st one didn't and the second one did and it was much nicer to operate without having to manually light it. I would also suggest getting a stove that may have the capability to burn other types of material (eg. corn, sunflower, soybean etc.) Just in case you come across a good deal on some corn or something it would save on buying pellets, sometimes you can get a hold of a farmer or something and get a bunch for a good deal.

At the price of corn and beans right now I dont think you will be burning them...but still probably not a bad idea to have the flexibility of burning other fuels. The other big thing in my opinion is to get one that is easy to clean as you will probably have to do it yourself, as well as most maintenance. Check and see if the seller is willing to do house calls.

I didn't have any trouble with the clean-up or maintenance on the two stoves I had. Keep them clean and they should continue to work well for you. I bought a little 1 or 2 gallon shop vac. for cleaning mine out. I would just let the stove burn out and cool down around the time it needed cleaning and vacumed out the ashes. I also kept a little paint brush handy to sweep out the hard to reach places, then just take the vac outside and dump the ashes. Worked good!

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .

    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
