100 pounds of Eastern Kentucky stoked. Elvira might not be the prettiest thang out there but she sure throws the heat and makes your clothes come off. Shes a bit burning beast and the best investment I think I ever made. I do have pretty with a GW #8 or Oakvale Andes but hard coal very expensive here in these Mountains of Southwest Va. This WM #400 might not be the most efficient stove out there but for burning Bituminous and holding 100 pounds she's hard to beat.

Nice pics. Looks like you have the right beast for the job! I ran a slightly smaller WM 500 ( 80-90 pounder?) with Anthracite some years a go. Hungry, but a heat monster when you wanted it. It would take 3-4 days to go out cold on a shutdown.

Any stove that can handle 100 pounds of bit is a pretty stove in my book! Thats a lot of heat!

I sure wish I could get my hands on one of those. A few years ago a guy about 20 miles from me had a brand new one that had never been used. He wanted $465 for it. I thought that was way too high. I regret not buying it now.

I saw one for sale on here, new old stock somewhere in PA . $1,300 still on the pallet. Great stoves for burning bit.
