Don't believe the bad reviews Review by Joe El

I have had this stove for 5 years now. I recently recommended it to a friend who just bought a house and was surprised to come back and find all of these bad reviews. I believe all of these people just didn't have the intelligence to run this simple machine. Tour the person who said it burns 7-15lb an hour... call us stove or do a Google search and learn how to use your stove. They are set extremely high from the factory and are set for a 3000 sqft area.. I now burn 2-2.5lbs an hour and it heats my 1500sqft ranch to mid 70s all winter. Take some time and learn how to adjust the stove to meet your needs and I guarantee it will work better than you whining on this site and leaving bad reviews because you can't figure out how to regulate air and fuel.. OK I'm done now..

Very inefficient Review by God of all things pellet

A stove such as a EcoChoice Cab 50 while only 48,000 btu actually transfers heat from the pellets, through the burner and into the space you are trying to condition.
I have one in the basement and a St. Croix upstairs. (Auburn) That stove is horrible, don't buy it either.
The manual ignitor is something you want to avoid on any burner.
Last year, we burned 9 ton between the two stoves.
This U S king stove @4.7 # per hour/14# per hour will break your bank and your back.
If this or the St. Croix were my only two options, I would move.

Would NOT recomend Review by Melanie W

Heats house great as long as the cotter pin doesn't burn off and burn out the inside agitator. We've had this stove 3 months and it needs the parts replaced again for the second time. In the mean time, I'm still paying for it and now the propane on top of it!!!!

great heater Review by dan fortin

Installed this heater in October if it is 35 degrees or warmer it will heat the house to 75 set on 1 at 15 out side it will keep the inside temp at 73 even if the wind is blowing if it gets below 15 I have to set it on2. We are very pleased with tis heater my home is 1200 square feet much better that the wood furnace we used for 30 years no mess and you can control the temp much better. if you follow the directions no problem . you have to install it right it will work fine. now we will see how many years it will last.

Furnace 8500 Review by Veronique

We purchased the 8500 last month (Sept 2014). We actually got it running a week after we received it because of the ductwork not being completed.
The furnace was delivered by a different company, the deliverers DO NOT help to bring it in the house. As this furnace weighs 485 pounds, make sure you have a few hands to bring it in. We had to bring it down in the basement and we had a hell of a time.
THINGS TO KNOW: As we were doing all the ductwork, we needed to know the CFM of this machine and it didn't say, I had to contact the company, in case you may need to know the answer, this furnace give 800 CFM's per blower and it has 2 blowers.
This furnace does NOT have an auto ignition. If you want to heat the house, you must keep I running at all times, The only issue with that is that the house gets REALLY HOT!, we than need to go down the basement o turn it off.

Rural king was very friendly and helpful on ordering. It was a quick phone call and I had everything I needed.

Love it! Review by Andria mcbride

We have a 2500 sq. foot house and it keeps us to warm 80 ! We run it on one most of the time . Even this past winter when it was so cold here in northern WI -20 some days we just put it on 3 and it kept the house at 72! This stove is amazing :)

GREAT FURNACE : Review by Larry Shannon.

I bought my US STOVE Model 8500 from Rural King. Rural King was great. Good price with fast shipping.Sent by Old Dominion Trucking who was also great. The furnace holds 160 pounds of pellets. I had problem with the twin blower motors when I first fired it up. The motor mounts on both fans were broken. I called US STOVE and they gladly honored their warranty and I had the parts in 2 days.It was an easy fix and you keep the broken parts. The furnace keeps my small house at 76 degrees on the number 3 or middle setting while the outside temperature is 25 degrees. Make sure to use Hi temp silicone on all vent pipe joints especially any elbows. You can count on Rural King and it is a safe place to buy. Google Verified. Recommended by Norton and they get good reviews from customers on Amazon. A good furnace. Don't hesitate to buy one.

Terrible Stove and Terrible Customer Service DO NOT BUY!! Review by Jacob Thompson

Well long story short, after purchasing this stove over a month ago and we correctly installed it to all the US Stove specifications the stove has filled my house with smoke twice from the draft fan randomly shutting off on level 3, along with numerous other issues. I have now had to heat my home on propane for an additional month and am now currently getting the run around from both US Stove and Rural King customer service. But after my last conversation with Rural King's head of customer service they did offer me a whopping $50 off a $3000 pile of junk investment!!! If you are thinking about buying this stove to save on heating costs, DONT its a WASTE of MONEY!!!

Product Questions

Sort by ASC
Just wondering how long 320lbs will last on low setting plus wondering what kind of shipping i need to bring to my house and unload it
Do the fan and auger run on 240 vdc or 120vdc?
Can I burn wood in this stove ?
When the unit is connected to existing duct work can the unit be run from a thermostat that is installed for this unit only?
If the power goes out when it is running will the stove leak smoke into the building ?
Is this a EPA Certified Furnace?
I was ready to purchase the 8500 furnace (corn/pellet) until I read how many pounds of pellets it uses an hr. Are those figures accurate, as I am a retired math teacher and I figured if I used 10 lbs an hrs. for 24 hrs and 30 days I would use 3- 3.5 tons of pellets. This can not be right, r the figures that r printed n your flyer about this furnace correct? Let me know as I would like to purchase one but if it uses that many pellets I may as well use propane!!!!!!
