If you want the biggest, hottest burning, wood stove we have; then the Ponderosa Wood Burning
Stove is the perfect stove for you. It features a durable 3/16" reinforced plate
steel build lined with firebrick, and a heavy cast iron door with air washed ceramic
glass for brilliant viewing of the fire.
The Ponderosa wood burning stove is an air-tight, high efficiency, 3/16" plate
steel stove that continuously produces maximum heat output. Boasting 152,000 BTU's
per hour, and an efficiency rating of 87%.
Here is how it works: The primary air inlet at the front of the stove ignites
the wood upon startup. Once burning, the secondary air inlet at the rear of the
firebox feeds air to the top of the stove through four (4) ignition tubes directly
above the wood. The result is that you have ignition, or fire, at the bottom AND
at the top of the stove which, in effect, "consumes" the wood. This is a very effecient
method of getting the most energy possible out of the wood that you are burning.
The Ponderosa has a continuous burn time of up to 14 hours on a single load of
hardwood, accepts logs up to 22" long and will heat up to 2,600 square feet of space.
The Ponderosa also includes an adjustable high speed (100 CFM) blower to allow you
to move more of that warm air into the room. Perfect for heating your Great Room,
large living area, pole barn or garage.
The superior design of the cast iron door uses an air wash system. What
an air wash system does is consistently draws air from the top of the stove
down past the 15" x 9" ceramic glass window. This effectively prevents the
tar and soot that would normally build up, restricting your view and making
maintenance a chore and always allowing you a magnificent view of your fire.
The inside of the Ponderosa is lined with firebricks for even greater
burning efficiency. The purpose of the firebrick is multifaceted:
It helps to insulate the stove so that there is less unintended heat
loss from the unit, allowing the heat to be distributed as desired. Firebricks
hold up well to extreme temperature changes and possess low thermal conductivity
making them an excellent choice for aiding in the efficiency and longevity
of your stove. Gives the stove an aesthetically pleasing appearance while
not in operation. In short, a firebrick-lined firebox is key for burning
The firebox itself measures 18 1/2'' wide x 26'' deep and is capable of holding logs
up to 22'' in length. Due to the previously mentioned efficiency qualities, the Ponderosa
can maintain a burn time of up to 14 hours on one load!
Note: A 14 hour burn time is dependent upon certain variables such as the quality
of the fuel source and the amount of fuel (wood) used.
As the fuel burns up, the large and easily accessible ash drawer hold the
debris cleanly and securely until it is time to be cleaned out.
Not only will the Ponderosa completely satisfy your heating needs, it
can also act as a humidifier when accompanied by a water steamer! Simply
place on top and refill occasionally. With just a little bit of Stove Scent,
your water steamer can become a fragrance diffuser! Stove
Scent fragrance sold separately.
