Is this a cast iron unit? If not, what would you recommend?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 13, 2013
The vast majority of modern stoves, as is this model, are manufactured of plate steel. Plate steel stoves are reasonably durable, offer excellent thermal efficiency, and offer a clean, simple appearance.
We do offer some cast iron stoves, such as the Napoleon 1100C Cast Iron EPA Wood Burning Stove, which offer the extended heating capabilities associated with this material. Napoleon is among the finest manufacturer of cast iron stoves on the market today and offers years of worry free service. This unit is sufficient to heat approximately 1,600 square feet of space. We do offer larger models as well, if more footage must be heated.

How far from back wall do I need for installation?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 28, 2013
This El Dorado stove calls for 15" of clearance from the back of the stove to the wall if you use single-wall stovepipe, but this can be reduced to 6" if you use double-wall stovepipe.

A few questions:
(1) Is there a length-limit for the air-intake duct? Or, asked another way, how much should one up-size the duct diameter for runs over the 4' length of the AC02090?
(2) General shipping/delivery questions:
(a) What size truck?
(b) Lift-gate equipped?
(c) What am I expected to provide on my end (forklift, loading dock, ...)?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 6, 2013
This manufacturer specifies a length limit of 10 feet for combustion air ducting. They do not advise exceeding the length limit, even if the duct size was increased. The diameter of the duct will still be sufficient up to 10 feet in length, but the stove will likely not have ample draw to pull air from a longer run.
This unit is delivered via freight on a 53 foot trailer. A lift gate equipped truck can be dispatched for an additional 75 dollar surcharge. The stove will be unloaded curbside at a residence, where you must provide means to move it into the home. A standard trailer can of course deliver to a dock without the lift gate.
