Russo C-55 Owners Manual

Very popular in the 70's and 80's there is many brands of smaller hand fired coal stoves from many European countries. These can also date back to the turn of the last century. Imported stoves would include such brands as Franco Belge, Saey and Efel among many others.

Please let me know how the Russo stove works out as I'm thinking of getting one used myself. Good luck.

Hi,

I've been lurking here for a while but I can help with this one. I have a russo stove and am very happy with it. It will heat my entire 2800sq ft. house and keep the oil boiler from kicking on. I also have an EFM stoker boiler thats not up and runing yet but thats another story. You can get parts and info on your russo directly from ...russo @ http://www.fireplaceseast.com they don't make coal stoves any more but they still have parts and paperwork.

Been running a c-55 for 5 years now in a 4000 sq ft house, installed on the first floor in the shop, heats the whole place even the upstairs. Likes a little chunks of wood with the coal imo, really sweet stoves. Haven't bought heating oil in a long time, but keep the furnace around in case it's winter and I need to leave for a few days.
