Product Details:

The Austral III Wood Burning Stove is one of the cleanest burning non-catalytic stoves on the market, with the low particle emissions of only .95 g/h. The Austral III respects the environment while providing the power and performance capable of heating up to 2,300 square feet, setting it apart from the competition. Running at a max 90,000 BTUs, the Austral III is sure to keep your home nice and toasty in the cold winter months.

The large 3.3 cubic foot firebox is capable of handling up to a 20" log and has a maximum burn time of up to 10 hours. The Austral III is designed to place the logs over the depth of the stove, which makes it easier when reloading.

The Austral III wood stove is a great choice for heating anything from a large home to a large pole barn. An ash drawer comes standard with the stove and an optional blower is available to help you push the heat across your room. The sleek and simple design will fit with nearly any home decor.

    Optional Accessories:

    Blower Assembly with Variable Speed Control (Up To 100 CFM)

    The optional Variable Speed Blower is a great way to help spread the heat across the room more quickly. The 100 CFM blower mounts to the back of the stove and comes with an 8' power 120/AC power cord. The blower runs very quietly in the background.

    Quick Connect Thermodisc

    The Quick Connect Thermodisc is a great addition when using a blower on your Escape 2100 wood stove. The thermodisc will only activate the blower to run when the stove reaches a certain temperature. If you forget to turn the blower off before you leave the home for a few days, the thermodisc will cut power off to the blower and prevent it from running until the stove is hot again. This is a must for any wood stove with a blower.

    5" Fresh Air Intake Kit for Wood Stove on Legs

    A fresh air intake is great for any stove. This will ensure the stove has the proper combustion air to run efficiently. If your home is very air tight, you would need an air intake kit. The kit comes with the intake adapter for the stove, 2 clamps and the hood register for outside. A 5" fresh air pipe is required to complete the job.
