Water Jacket for a Hitzer 50-93

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.

Does anyone out there know if a water jacket can be installed on a Hitzer 50-93?

I can't see how a water jacket could be added to the stove.. a water jacket is on the outside of a firebox, in essence making it a boiler.. I can't see it working very well, and it would ruin most of the heating ability of the stove,, as a stove..

If you mean an internal water 'coil' or loop for collecting heat and heating domestic hot water,, then if this is a hopper fed stove, is there room around the hopper??? I'm not sure,

I'd call Hitzer directly and ask them..
