We have a Heartland Sweetheart woodburning cookstove for sale. It was purchased by my husband's aunt for her farmhouse...just in case..someday she might need it. It was used only a handful of times and is in like new condition. We are located in SE Washington state. Here is the link to our craigslist ad: https://kpr.craigslist.org/for/5102940579.html. Thank you for looking.
Susan ; It is the condition of the grates that determines a cook stove's true age !
Most of my experience with cookstoves is for models 50 years or more older than me, but I have learned that
The grates and fire box must be clean and dry when not in use, allowing old wood ash to sit in a Cookstove and ''draw moisture out of the air''
means that you are allowing THe metal parts to be bathed in a continuous bath of Very Caustic LYE!*
Is this unit rated to burn Coal - and has it ever burned coal
Starting with a camera (Cell Phone ) Explore how easily the grates can be removed as they periodically should be, Extra points for an easy
disassembly that does not involve dismantling the stove itself ! Good clear pictures that show it's good condition should fetch you a buyer !
Do you still have the Manual - and what are this models model and serial numbers !
Hopefully this should help! For the crafts ! Big AL
*Living in ether the N.E. or the P.N.W. we see humid conditions that caused the creation of that truism ''its better to ware out than rust out "
Success has a Thousand Fathers , Failure is an Orphan

Do you have any thoughts on a site where we could advertise a Kohler 14KW 120/240V single phase propane fuel generator and a 500 gal propane fuel tank? Would ppl on this site be interested in that type of thing?
Yes that would be a perfect place for you to post your generator as many of the folks there live remotely and are in need of products like generators. I am also interested as I am looking for a whole house back up generator. When you post I'll review it and let you know if I'm interested. We have a diesel genny at our Yaak place but need one for our new home in Kalispell. We have Natural Gas but I can convert the Kohler, in fact I am a Kohler dealer and have sold a few of what your offering. They are nice units.
You may also want to post it here as this site receives a ton of traffic and many folks here are also off grid and need a good genny for a fair price.
