US Stove Company 40 Lb. Forester Pellet Heater
While the Forester pellet stove has many of the problems common to budget pellet stoves, it can heat up to 1,600 square feet - impressive for a stove that hovers around the $1,200 price range. With 44,000 BTU output (when the listed fuels are used) and a 40-pound hopper capacity, the stove does not seem like too much of a compromise. It has a viewing window that makes the stove pleasant in any home, lending a fireplace-like atmosphere to the room. As with many budget models, the Forester stove may need some replacement parts before too long, especially with the pellet delivery system. While on the high end of the budget pellet stoves, this model features automatic ignition and electronic controls, making it easy for anyone to use. The stove weighs about 200 pounds, unloaded, and is safe for use in mobile homes.
