great stove for shed and outdoors!
Good stove and speedy delivery
I flashed up the stove a couple of days ago and was very pleased with its performance. It quickly heated the tent and the top was hot enough to prepare a meal. I’m looking forward to the winter when it will really have to prove itself.
Awesome piece of kit
Love it, cant wait too do some winter fishing
4K Eco stove
Really pleased with the stove - it lights easily and gives off a great amount of heat. Good air control and the window is brilliant - means you can see how the fire is going all the time. Highly recommend this stove and Bell Tent Village
Great little stove
This is a great little stove. Just what I wanted to go in my tent. Can’t wait to try it out in the cold weather
Brilliant! It saved my beloved 25 year old Dutch scout tent from being scrapped. It worked beautifully without nasty chemicals. So survived a thunderstorm and smelt pleasant to sleep in. I have loads left over too.
Cotton Canvas Waterproofing
I was disappointed as I had thought this would be a spray but it turned out to be a liquid which entailed washing the canvas cover and adding a portion to the wash. Not suitable to the need.
Worked great as i got a stained on my new bell tent and used a cleaner on it but i found it was not waterproof so i used this Cotton Canvas Waterproofing and if now is waterproof again. I got a spray bottle and put one part of Cotton Canvas Waterproofing to 9 parts of water and sprayed onto the part i wanted to waterproof and let it dry. I redone this 3 times and checked by putting water onto the area and it was 100% waterproofed again.Great job.
Cotton canvas waterproofing
Application is very easy. I used it to re-proof my swag ( Australian bivvy bag) , a canvas rucksack and a pair of over trousers. Half a bottle did these items.
Well made and very effective
I used the stove for the first time this weekend in freezing -6 degree temperatures. It was very much appreciated. The overall size of the stove is compact and transportable (although heavy). It is easy to set up and is very efficient in use. The stove can burn both coal and wood but I just tried wood (oak whisky barrel staves) and at the end of the burn was left with very fine ash (no big chunks). It was almost too efficient as a fully stocked firebox at as low an air gap as I dared burned for about 2 hours. I think coal would work better for longer burn times. I wanted a low burn for as long as possible to keep the tent at a bearable temperature whilst wrapped in my sleeping bag. I ended up getting up at 3 am to relight the fire as sleep was elusive even with a 4 season bag (it was -6). If I opened up the vent up the heat in the tent was unbearable and you could just about see the wood disintegrate before your eyes. As I said very efficient. The stove is very well designed and made but could do with a few refinements. A clip of some sort to hold the feet closed would make pack up easier. I envision cleaning the channel from the firebox to the flue could prove problematic so an access plate could prove useful. The bag on offer (optional) is too small and because the flue pipes are thin and long they don't fit inside the oven. I am worried about damaging the flue in transportation. A bag designed to carry the stove, flue and accessories would be well received. I have a custom bag (being made elsewhere) coming. A pair of leather protective gloves would be a useful addition to the package as well. I had the forethought to bring a set but I dare say not everyone would. When you first start the stove it takes some time before the flue starts to draw efficiently so you need the doors wide open when you start it from cold. When it is going it draws the smoke away very efficiently. The very first time you light the stove you get a smell from the paint as it heats up (to be expected) this calms down after a while and expect it won't be noticeable after a few trips away. The other thing to be cognizant of is that although the stove is on feet and raised it will burn the grass underneath. I had a heat/fireproof mat under the stove but still ended up scorching the grass. I think a garden slab maybe sort for future trips. I didn't try the oven as the camp was catered (scout camp) so can't comment on the food prep side. Think it will work great but take some careful guesswork to get the temperatures right (will depend on fuel and combustion rate). The supplied water tank is a great addition. It boils water quickly and in the future intend on bringing a hot water bottle to fill from the tank. It has a ring pull on the top to aid in removal once the water is boiling. It's a little bit fiddly but this is more down to lack of experience than bad design. The space under the tap is a little tight for most mugs so you need to take this under consideration and either raise the stove up using a slab or get a stubbier mug. Overall really happy with the stove. Was certainly a focus on envy on the weekend. I look forward to more comfortable camps in the future.
i missed out but can't wait for mine!
i missed out on it because it's in such demand-not hard to see why-but i can't wait to have one ... people working with me are outstanding! they are knowledgeable, considerate and honest. helpful and then some!
Small but mighty!
Had the shed warmed up to 20 degrees today with this stove going for an hour whilst painting, it was 4 outside and my shed is not insulated. It’s perfect, honestly could not be happier, so easy to fit and put together. I spend night after night for weeks on end looking for a stove that may be suitable for a shed, the trying to locate other parts that would fit. Purchasing this as a kit was worth every penny! While the size made it perfect I was initially doubtful of the heat it would provide but how wrong I was! Never spent as long out of the house in February... my partner agrees it was a great investment!!!!
I am pleased with the burner but it does leak some smoke from under the plate at the top . Also the flashing kit lets water into the tent when it’s raining , it’s not loads but enough to be annoying , it’s the flashing kit that came with the fire . I had to e mail for instructions on how to assemble the fire and to find out what the silver circle clip was for
