American Energy Systems Magnum Countryside
I have had the Countryside Baby Magnum for 5 years. Haven't had any significant problems, especially after they upgraded it to a higher output fan (std now). Runs constantly all winter and heats 100% of my MN house about 90% of the time. Uses 125 bushels of corn a year running constantly. It is in my basement and I never really run it above 2 o3 out of 5. It would be too warm. You need to thoroughly clean it at least 2-3 times a year for trouble free operation.
