My neighbor just put a new eclassic in about 3 weeks ago.
His old classic sits in his back yard.
He is burning green wood from his logging jobs so we will see how that works for him.

I wonder how that will like green wood.
I am doing that now with red pine. ::) I am low on wood. But saying that the red rine is doing better than what white pine would. I did a experiment one year and burned green white pine. I kept warm sawing and splitting white pine. I went through some wood. :o And I don't want to mention the smoke. Not a great way to burn wood,green,but we have to do what we have to do.

Another trouble free season is quickly approaching on my 1995 Central Boiler. Hope I did not jinx myself.

Guess what ? I jinxed myself. Did not use it for a few days. Went out to start a fire to take off the chill and found a couple of inches water in the bottom. Cleaned it out crawled in and found the leak.Called a repair guy and he said he will have it good as new. Hope after the repair I get a few more years.
