Bosca Classic Freestanding Pellet Stove
The Bosca Classic 500 freestanding pellet stove is the Bosca Spirit in a very different casing. This enabled Bosca to increase the hopper capacity by 50% to 65 lbs..
Able to heat areas of from 15,000 to 18,000 square feet, the "Classic" is capable of 40,000 btu., but can run for 86 hours on low without re-filling the hopper.
It is a radically different design from the ultra modern 'Spirit' and the classical looks wouldn't be out of place in a grand fireplace from the 1760's.
The Bosca Classic also has an enlarged easily accessible ash pan to increase the interval at which ash needs to be removed.
