The Enviro M55 multi fuel pellet stove was introduced in the summer of 2009. It's a step top stove with an arched top door and viewing window, producing 55,000 btu. and able to heat an area of 2,500 square feet.Using a burn pot agitator similar in design to the 'Omega', this stove is capable of burning almost any type of pellets as well as corn, wheat and barley Changing settings for different fuels is done with the push of a button
Unusually, this stove is able to automatically ignite any of its potential fuels because the igniter is aided by an air pump which raises the temperature of the starter.
The motors are capacitor driven for quietness, and a built in hearth pad is provided as part of the stove, which also has a fluted cast iron firebox liner for better heat exchange efficiency.
