  • great value stove

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Let me begin by saying this stove is the best i have.
    Burns gasoline , diesel, kerosene
    the supplied multitool is adequate
    Burner has a rugged feel, seems pretty strong, pre-heat tube is strongly attached
    Wide range of power available, from a defening roar to a subtle flame
    accepts large diameter cookware

    Cons:

    Roars like an airplane turbine
    puts a stong hydrocarbon stench everywhere it touches, (bags, hands )
    lacks pressure release valve on the pump assembly

    OtherThoughts:

    to prime it , put some fuel on the cup and light it, wait about 20 seconds and then open the fuel valve. it will give off some soot at the begining and after about 1 minute, the flame is stabilizes

    i choose to use some gas sealant on the hose fittings just to make sure it doesnt leak

    Dont use ethanol on it, it will corrode the rubber sealings

    when unscrewing the bottle from the pump assembly, the larger the pressure still inside the bottle, the more fuel will be sprayed on your hands, time will teach the user to use the pump wisely

    SKU: 109591 has a pressure release valve but costs a few more dollars

    Bottomline:

    definitly a must if you go outdoors in low temperatures or just if you wanna stop spending on ridiculously expensive gas canisters.

    Some care must be taken when operating
