Please read all documents and manuals before lighting your first fire!
Please Note: The Hunter is a recreational device and should only be used in temporary installation. Please read the owners manual before ordering which can be found HERE.
It's sturdy steel construction allows you to warm up and cook on top of the unit. Easily transportable on an ATV, it can follow you on each of your hunting or fishing expeditions. The Hunter gives you the autonomy and comfort you need.
Avoiding overheating: As a portable wood stove, the HUNTER does not come with refractory firebricks. Although not required for operation, it is recommended to install firebrick on the bottom of the firebox. Even if the firebrick does not fit perfectly on the bottom, leaving spaces between each brick, it will help protect your firebox and increase its useful life. Firebrick can be added to your order by selecting that option above.
Solid Fuel: Your stove is designed to burn wood only; no other combustible should be burnt. Waste and other flammable material should not be burnt in your stove. Any type of wood may be used in your stove, but specific species have better energy yields than others. The vast majority of the problems related to the operation of a wood stove are caused by the fact that the wood used is too damp.
These problems can be:
- Ignition problems
- Creosote build-up causing chimney fires
- Low energy yield
- Incomplete log combustion.
Before your first fire:
- Make sure that the chimney and flue pipe are well installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
- Respect all clearances to combustible material and floor protection requirements mentioned in this manual.
Ignition: After making sure that the stove air intake control is fully open, place several rumpled sheets of paper in the center of the combustion chamber. Place 8 to 10 pieces of small dry kindling wood over the paper in the form of a tent. You may also place a few pieces of heating wood, but choose them as little as possible. No chemical liquid (or accelerant) should be used to light the fire.- Exclusive to recreational use (ice fishing hut, prospector tent)
- Do not leave the stove unattended when the door is slightly opened.
- When the stove is used for the first time, intense fire is prohibited in order to allow adequate curing of the paint covering the stove and to prevent a "thermal shock" which may remove or whiten the paint.
- Make sure the area where the stove is located is well ventilated, to remove the bad odors emitted from the paint, during the first, two or three hours of using the stove and for the first three or four fire start-ups.
- Never use chemical liquids to ignite the fire.
- Do not burn waste, flammable fluids such as gasoline, naphtha or motor oil.
- Exclusive to recreational use (ice fishing hut, prospector tent)
