It gets plenty hot! I am constantly impressed by how efficient the stove is too. I cranked it up last night, got the wood burning and then loaded the firebox full of wood. Set the damper way down, came back an hour later and the room was well over 230F ! That was off of one loaded box of pine wood, and it stayed hot for hours. Send my best to your coworkers and please thank everyone involved for me!
All the best,
