  1. Domestic log splitter.

    I would take a nice old lump of elm or oak to test - gets through those and its nice.
  2. Husqvarna 555

    i have one at work and to be honest i hate it, never seems settled into a cut, fussy to start, hates being used as a chipper saw, Wouldnt have one if you paid me. this is in comparison to 351, 357, 372, 135

  4. which wood stove - again sorry

    thats a good point, Have a stovax where i live currently and it has 2 settings really - slumber and wide open so when sweep comes its nice and clean. kind of got in my head a big stove on tickover all day be fine, but actually may result in a tarred up flue.... hmm
  5. which wood stove - again sorry

    Wow tons of info here to look at, thanks. kw i guess 6 plus at miniumum as want to leave doors open and let heat flow, perhaps an ecofan? bigger logs good along with stove efficiency i guess is hugely important as longer it will stay lit. some reading ahead i reckon.
  6. which wood stove - again sorry

    So i am on the look for some opinions on stoves please. Long story short need a new stove, liner etc at a house and generally have no idea on stoves, What i do know, wood only - all well seasoned and no longer a log than 16 inches (splitter max length) Nice glass door or doors as visual is good. i need efficient as want a fill up 8am and burn for 8 hrs on hardwood, at least i guess 5+ kw Stovax are used by a local supplier, but open to ideas. cost is a consideration as given i need new liner, proper fireplace, chimney can etc and its a 2 floor house.
