The power hardly ever goes out since i've had a generator but I'm ready.
My pellet stove seems to work quite well, will be my first winter with
it this year. My house is small, it should heat just fine. I have my
fall back wood boiler in the basement with gravity hot water
circulation. No power needed. Used zero oil last winter.
Two words I really really really hate ........... should and probably. Let
us hear from you in the spring on how it did. If you have a small house,
and the other things you need to take care of are taken care of, it should
do fine. You know, insulation, air leaks, drafts, etc.
A friend at work bought an electric splitter when he got a woodstove
but quickly upgraded to a gasoline-powered model as the electric one
didn't have enough power.
And to make a long story short, he had to pay too much for the new gas model
because he bought the inefficient electric model which he couldn't sell for
diddly and so had to eat that.
Buy quality and cry only once. In tools or machinery, overbuy because you
will always increase in what you do if you have good tools.
I bought a 28 ton hydraulic with a Honda engine. $1,000and change IIRC.
The damn thing scares me sometimes. And it hurts my wrist with all that
maneuvering of the lever. Whereas it used to hurt my back, arms, neck,
shoulders, wrists, elbows, knees, etc.
