Tamarack LE-1

Overall Rating:
    read reviews (5)   |   write a review

Named for the unique tamarack tree, this stove remains ever loved for the distinct heat characteristics of its steptop surface as well as its time-honored American hearth looks. Wood from the tamarack tree is strong, heavy, and burns as a bright crackling fire - which produces tremendous heat. This Kuma stove is aptly named for it.

We bought this stove late in 2022, built a nice elevated hearth with 18 in. tiles up the wall a bit. Went to get the permit... 10 days out for final inspection. The inspection was today, however 12 inches of snow is on the ground. 'Hey we need to reschedule you'. 'Hey the weather isn't going to be any better over the next few days'. How about using technology? So FaceTime is was, tape measure in hand... all clearances appropriate, chimney pipe good to go. Permit approved this morning and we have been toasty all day. Well built, efficient stove. It will be 16 degrees tonight, cold for this area of the nation. Looking forward to packing the stove for an all night burn! Highly recommend Kuma woodstoves. We will be purchasing an insert for the front room this year, 2023!

It is currently 2 below outside. I bought a Tamarack wood stove and had it installed last summer. My house is very comfortable this morning. I loaded the stove last night about 10:30 went to bed got up about 2:30 and threw a couple pieces of wood in it. At 6:30 this morning my house was still warm and had plenty of coals to start a new fire. This wood stove is all I use for heat and has done as well as advertised. Just last week I also purchased a heat powered wood stove fan that sits atop the stove. It is amazing how that little fan helps distribute the heat. All in all I am pleased with the work this stove performs. I have had several wood stoves over the years and this one is superior to the others. Made in America too. Heats my 1600 Sq. Ft. home more than adequately.

I lit up a round of lodgepole last night for the first time in my new Kuma Tamarack stove. It’s noon the next day and it’s still working on just the second round of lodgepole… This stove is heating a 1000 sq. ft. shop with 12 foot ceilings and a roll up door. Also indirectly heading two other rooms for a total of 1500 sq. ft. This stove is awesome! I installed the blower and it really moves the heat. This stove will choke out the fire and slow roll your burn all night like no other stove I have ever had. No more cold shop in the morning!

Yamhill, Oregon
I agree 100% with Lance's review about this stove being perfect. With regard to price, volume of heat, and wood consumption - we're dang near euphoric. The heat feels... just so organic. the heat permeates the house, raising the temperature of everything, not just a the air nearest the stove. The quality of the workmanship is exceptional. The price simply fantastic. We are happy we bought this stove.

Tamarack wood stove

I bought the Tamarack wood stove and had it installed on Friday. We live in a cold climate with lots of snow and frigid cold weather. Even on May 6th, the morning temperature was 25 degrees. I lit the stove for the first time on Friday night and was amazed. It was a little harder to start a fire than my old stove but once the fire got established, took off, came up to temperature, and reached the active range on the thermometer, I shut it down, leaving the bottom air intake rod open about an inch. The fire slowed way down and generated a ton of heat. I love this stove. It burns way less wood than my old one. About 5 pieces a day. If anyone is hesitant on buying one, I'm telling you it's a great stove. It lasts all night and has coals in the morning to start the next fire. Glad I bought it.
