Anyone have experience using these ? I was thinking of using it outdoors to boil sap (maple syrup production).

Its a laundry stove meant to have a large container of water on it to heat. It should work very well for boiling sap. It is intended as a coal burner though. Not sure if wood will make it hot enough because the fire box is small for wood.

That is a nice little laundry stove and depending on the size/amount of sap you put on the top it could work for you.I think it would be most effective when using coal. I have a similar one that I tote around when camping and they work great for small meals.If you need a larger size look for a model like a "Fatso".The "Fatso" is of the same design but as the name implies it is almost twice the size and has an conspicuously "fat" firebox,thus the name.I have one of them also but he does not like to take road trips or go camping as he only moves slowly by hand truck.

I would offer half. They are not an easy stove to sell.

Looks a bit small. Yeah. Tell them $50 and you will haul it out.

Regarding the price,$50-$80 seems about the price range for a stove like that one IF the grate is good,no cracks,no breaks or no weld. If the design of the stove or the artistic features of the castings actually speak softly to you then you may have to dig a little deeper into the piggy bank. See where the owner is with it. Mike

Thank you gentlemen
He won't budge on the price... I am not that attached to it, I just need something to boil sap I might try to fabricate something.

Don't worry about it. Laundry Stoves are a dime a dozen. Look on Craigslist and you find a bunch of them. It will do a very good job a what you want to use it for. It was made to heat water and that's what it will do.
