Polar post #'s
« on: June 20, 2017, 07:57:12 PM »

Why so few posts about Polar?

At first glance it looks like there isn't much interest in this brand. Or maybe its a sign that they do not have many problems?  :)

How long has the polar brand been around?

I have been looking at this website and getting most of my info from it. I was about to write off polar because of the few posts but the more I hear about them the more I like them.

Well they are around but not for very long.  They once built a furnace under another name for a different company.  This WD company went under and basically polar took over. There is a lot more to the story but there you have it.

Sorry wasn't meant like that.  Meant the name hasn't been on the stoves for long

Ok but they have been doing the name for at least 4-5 years that I'm aware of, ever since Arthur and Dave put the screws to all involved.

In my eyes 4 years isn't that long.

Yes but as stated before, they built for Arthur and Dave for several years before that.

It can be looked at another way, with the low post numbers then it can mean that the people that have them are happy and the owners manual or dealers have been taking care of any questions they have.
