Comment:
We own the 25 Englander 25-PDVC version which is the same stove. Amazing money saver if you have oil heat! I figure the way we'regoing this winter, it will pay for itself in this one season with oil prices so high. It burns well, throws LOTS of heat and was only [$]. So far, it's one of the best bangs for the buck and is very well rated.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have the 55 shp22 which heats about 700 sq ft more than the one tested. It has a 60 lb hopper which will last about 17 hrs. It's not as fancy as the harmans but heats just as well. The only thing I wish it had was a ash pan to remove ashes.But I just let it cool off and vacuum up the ashes. It takes about 5 minutes. Well worth it.

Used in insulated garage

Pros
Heats well
Cons
Auger jam
Best Uses
Heating work shop
Comment:
I also purchased during the spring clearance so really did not have a chance to use it for several months. I use it in a 24x24 foot workshop and I live in Minnesota. I was able to get the temp up from near zero to 60 degrees in about 4 hours. The shop would be above freezing in the first hour. Fast enough for what I need. Upper auger did jam once and took about an hour of fiddling to get it cleared. Ashes do need to be cleaned out every day.
