Harman MK 2 Pricing

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 think it depends on where you live. Here in CT at a dealer near me they were asking $1650 for a Mark 2.

Localy, $1695.00 for the mark II, prices on the MK III go from $1865.00-$2300.00 Plus tax, dealer prices vary a lot in my area.

I just picked up a like new MK III today, only burned one time, owner had chimney issues. Keep a watchful eye, sometimes you can get a used one at a good price.

No, My Alaska Channing is a stoker, the Harman MK III will be used as a backup if I lose power or supplamental heat when it get's down to about 0* outside and the Channing is running it's gut's out.

Now I have best of both world's, guess these guy's will call me a cross dresser! :lol

I just could not pass this deal up, A MK III two years old that has only had one fire in it, it looks absolutely new! Plus 1 Ton (-1/2 bag) of bagged Blashak Nut coal and 3 sections of stove pipe that is still clean. For $1000.00. (Thanks again Jim.C)

I must be getting tired, I know perfectly well it's a stoker. Duh.
That's a good idea, and a good deal for the Harman. It's a lightweight isn't it!

Just bought one a couple months ago.

Listen carefully to what they quote you. I was quoted $1529 for a mark II. But LATER learned that DOES NOT include the door. So, if you need one of those too, they cost $129 for a plain black model or some $429 for the fancy brass model.

Had I been reading this forum a little longer. I wouldhave shopped a littl longer for a used one. But I LOVE my stove. Very solid, well engineered, and efficient. If mine blew up today; I'd be out looking for another tonight.

Sounds like a crooked dealership! That's like selling a car without its doors - never heard of any Harman Dealer, or any other for that matter, selling a stove without a door??? Weird.

Probably more like dealership not familiar with the product, seems to be the norm where the coal stoves are concerned. I've seen it mentioned that some of these dealerships don't or never even had them in stock. He was probably quoted a base price for the unit which doesn't include the door and the person quoting him the price didn't realize that the door wasn't included since you have a choice.

Yes, that's exactly right. But the same thing happed at TWO different dealers. I honestly don't believe they had any maliscious intent. Suddenly acted TOTALLY shocked when I arrived on site for delivery. Believe it has more to do with unfamiliarity with coal stoves in general and interchangable doors in specific. Just be aware. And make sure you get a price WITH a door.

But I LOVE my stove! Staring into that glass window on a cold winter night looks like staring into the pits of Hades. And the feel of that heet from the fan exchanger is like a bit of heaven on a freezing cold night.

After savoring and learning to use it, (mostly from this forum and first hand experimentation), this winter. I'd RUN right out and buy another if anything happened to this one.

It is not the door, but the door trim I believe. You can get the door with just plane old cast iron trim or as mine has solid brass trim few more money. Ask if that is what they mean. The top of the door and the frame around the glass are both replacable. Brass looks real nice in the living room, but who gives a s*** in the basement.

Actually Richard is right on the mark. Harman changed the way that the stoves are priced out on their price sheet. Last year stoves were list priced complete then you added in any options that the customer wanted, like a gold door. This year the stoves are listed bare and you have to add the door, or in the case of the VF3000 the hopper and feeder. Harman comunicated this to us but I have to admit it is a stupid way to post a price list.

Thats a good price. Now add in the price of a blower and all you need is coal.
I almost bought a MK 2, but I liked the larger ash pan of the TLC 2000. Besides my wife liked the looks of the TLC 2000. Imagine after all these years we finally were in agreement. :o
