What's the difference between the SoloStove, Bushbuddy, Trekker and Wild Woodgas Stove?

Customer query

Hi,

I would like a wood stove for my camping, and i hope you can help me.

I have been looking at “bushbuddy” and the “Solo stove” (are they the same almost?)   and “ wild woodgas”(the no battery one)

– what is best? and can you give me the diameter of them as I would like them to fit in my pot? The wild woodgas seems larger?

Thank you for a great web page :)

Wild Stoves Technical Response

We can certainly help you.

The Bushbuddy and SoloStove are very similar - some suggest identical, but I've not used one so I'm not in a position to comment. The Bushbuddy is the grandfather of lightweight woodgas stoves, and we sell the Trekker Stove which is a licensed and high quality copy of the BushBuddy, made by a guy who the Bushbuddy designer trained up. It's handmade in N America.

 

Spirit burner in Wild Woodgas Stove

Customer questionIMG_2389

Can you please confirm the advantages of using the spirit burner. Is it easier to and quicker to light? Is it as 'hot' as burning wood? Does the Meths last as long as wood?

Technical support response

The Wild Woodgas Stove is primarily designed for burning wood and other chunks of biomass, and it is only when using these fuels that the double-burn really kicks in. 

 

Which charcoal stove?

Customer questionIMG_0048

We are going to West Africa in a few months and want to know the very best Stove to use with charcoal. Is your Stove Tec an old model? The one on their website looks like an update.

 

Frontier Stove operation tips

Customer questionfrontier-stove-water-heater-1_copy

I recently bought a Frontier stove for use in my outdoor gazebo. I had previously used a chiminea situated just outside the gazebo so that the warmth radiated into the room. The Frontier is in the same place. This all happens under a large Maple tree, whose canopy begins about 5-6 feet above the very top of the chimney. Can you tell me if the smoke will be cool at that height, and if it will harm my tree?

 

Differences between rocket stoves

Customer question

The Eco version, I understand it is from the same manufactuter as the G3 stove (which you do not ship to Sweden), right? What are the main differences between the Eco and the G3? Especially when it comes to "energy output" and durability?

The other brand you are selling, Stovetec, claims in the supplied information that their stoves are vastly superior in "energy output" and durability compared to other brands due to materials and construction. How would you say they differ from the other ones you sell?
