Trez- have used those in the field in Alaska to heat our tents. We used gasoline (#2 diesel does not like -60) beware of using coal in those. Burns too hot for the thin sheet steel. Handy little stove for a camp, ice fishing house, etc.

I use a Lopi wood stove to heat my 900 sq ft house. After burning 2 stove fulls of wood, the cabin is nice and toasty. It will keep it warm in here all night. On those days in the dead of winter when I am away for a couple days, it'll take a couple burns before I stop seeing my breath. Slow but it dont take any electricity.

Got a sales rep coming out on Friday so we can go over options and cost. I had a wood burner in the old house that I got for cheap after Y2K. They were just about giving wood burner away after that. My thoughts now are going with the pellet stove and getting a generator big enough to handle the well pump and the stove and making a ext cord long enough to go from my shop to the house and wire up the control box for the pump to a 220v outlet in my shop so if we do lose power I can unplug the cord and go staight to the generator without worries of back feeding the line.
I have been talking to friends and co workers and they have had good things to say about the pellet stoves and if my boys get in trouble I can always have them restack the bags over on the other side of the shop and then make them move them back ha ha.
Thanks for everybody help and advise.

I thought about the same thing, between a pellet stove and wood burner. In my case, having access to all the FREE wood I needed, I elected to purchase a nice wood burner. Don't have to worry or depend on someone else for my fuel in case of emergency. I don't particularly like the wood cutting and splitting part but, hey, it's free heat.

I plan on only using wood but its nice to have the options..

Many of the pellet stoves are "multi fuel"
Depending on where you are and what is available. Cherry pits are a popular fuel for example

Since we are both from the great state of OHIO were do you get cherry pits at? I have never heard of that for a fuel source.

(Sorry, this one is sold out too, but it gives you an idea....)
