Re: Buck stove insert?
I have a free-standing Buck at camp and I'm looking to replace it. Compared to my Quadra-Fire (home stove) or just about any quality modern stove, the Buck is a piece of junk.
The fire box is poorly designed. The plate that sticks out the front is much to close to the loading doors, any amount of debris or ash that builds up causes the doors to close with difficulty or not at all. It's hailed as an air-tight stove but is far from it. Just an overall poorly designed, poor function stove.
