I am heating 1600 Sq ft of forced air and 5200 Sq ft of radiant and DMH.  My WM 5500 keeps 90% of the time.  I live on top of a hill (in WI) and have very little wind cover so when it gets windy I have a pretty large load.

When it is single digits or colder and windy I go through 1 of these about every 4 days. They are 66" tall x 36" wide x 44" deep. When its in the high teens and up I can get around 7days on 1.

Thats an interesting use for the plastic tanks. I’ve been cutting the tops off and screwing them to a pallet and filling the tanks as well with wood.

Yeah, that is a good idea. Do you have a cheap source for those totes?

I paid $20 a piece for mine, was a mix of 275 and 330 gallon totes, everyone had “bad valve” or “leaky valve” wrote on em. Most of the time around here they want $75 a piece and up for em. Guy in Paw Paw Michigan has an add on Craigslist. He even delivered for a little extra saving me a trip.

I get them for nothing.  We get glycol in them at work and when they have a bunch sitting at the shop they will let guys take them.  They work pretty good. When we cut we fill them up and haul them back to my place or my FIL'S. It saves on handling time on the wood.

I was thinking it would work good to take them into the woods and fill them up.

Do you ever have spares that you want to get rid of?

We take them right in the woods when we cut.
I usually take all I can get. There is not many sitting around the yard right now.  I will let you know if I am able to get some more.

Sure am looking forward to getting my G2. Placing the order in a couple of days. They have a factory rebate on the G series right now good until the end of April. Gotta get it ordered to take advantage of that rebate...
