Post by: George Scofield on December 26, 2014, 06:41:13 PM
I'm torn between a rancher 365 from earth and a used cb6048. Just wondering if any of u guys have anything at all to say about either one. Thanks for any help

I have the mt. man 500 and love it, it definitely does the job!!! Just don't go cheap on the underground pex like I did because I had to replace it and it was costly. I installed LOGSTOR as my replacement and WOW what a difference!!! This is a great site for info and to learn from.

I have a rancher 365. I like it just fine. Does exactly what I want. There's a few things I would change if I could but overall I love it. I bought a used hardy before this and won't be doing that again. Also ditto on good underground. I got the stuff from dealer 3 wrap and it is leaking ground water in pipe. I will have to redo. 1400 at my expense. Ouch
If your wondering what I would change
Water overflow in front left side of mine, so I learned to fill with wood then top off water otherwise it can belch hot water on your arm. Also sometimes I wonder if I should of got a ash pan. Argue all you want but it is nicer to clean. In hindsight I chose the 365 for the bigger door which I love. Also the light isn't very good on front. I gave up and put one on my shed facing the owb and wood pile. Works better anyway. None of these are Much to complain about and I would buy another if I had to.

Ditto on the underground line, bought a 250' roll of Logstor earlier in the year and haven't regretted it, well other than the size of the check, but I got over that once it was installed and had water in it.
