Hitzer 82FA

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

I'm getting rid of my US Stove 1557 coal furnace and putting in a Hitzer 82FA. I see where a few of you have Hitzer stoves. Does anyone have the 82 FA.

Don--

Let us know how it works out for you. Does this model have a fan/blower? How does the thermostat control function? I am curious to learn how this unit is designed. The Hitzer page doesn't offer much in the way of tech specs.
I don't see a hopper so I am lead to believe it is handfired? If so, what the dems of the firebox? Thanks

Love it. Does a great job. Very easy to maintain. Built a fire the day I got it and its been going ever since. Burned stove coal for about the first month, then switched to nut. I like the nut much better.
