The Wood Classic may have limited supply available through your local dealer but we are replacing it with the new more efficient Wood Classic LE.  If you have a Wood Classic, don't sweat, it is an amazing stove and we will provide service and support this product forever! Owner's Manual and Clearance Information can still be found under the "Additional Information" tab below.

The Wood Classic ranks in the top 10 of all stoves for EPA listed BTU output.  And, when compared only to similar non-catalytic stoves, ranks even higher.  The Wood Classic has more than a decade of proven performance under its belt, and a fair amount of that from cold north Idaho winters.  The Wood Classic boasts a number of "ease of use" features that make it a real workhorse stove.  The deep, north-south loading firebox will accept up to a 20" long piece of wood, leaving ample room for the common 18" wood length.  The optional ash pan is sizeable and handy. The real benefit to our "live" ash pan system is the ability to empty the pan first thing in the morning with coals still in the stove.  Other "plug" type systems need the fire to be out.

Wood Classic
I bought this stove from Bitterroot Stoves about a week ago and couldn't be happier. Kuma had it to the store only two days after I placed the order. It looks and works great! Thanks to the Folks at Kuma and Bitterroot Stoves & Billiards! Good service and quality workmanship are hard to find these days.

Wood Classic!
This is my 2nd wood stove (first was a top loading porcelain Avalon). Been burning my Kuma for 2 months now and I just don't believe what I have been missing. This is waaay more efficient than my old. I don't have one regret about this stove, simply awesome! So glad I bought this guy. I know why the warranty is so good, the stove just seems bullet proof. I am one satisfied customer!

Our Kuma Stove
We are near the end of our second winter (Jan 23, 2017) with our Kuma wood stove and we are still loving it. The glass window stays clean during all phases of the burn giving us the idea view. The first and second burns inside produce the most beautiful experience and heat. The fan pumps the heat out into our room quickly keeping us warm during the coldest days of winter and the smoke is nearly invisible but during the early stages of burning. I do not think I can think of a single issue I have with our stove. Thank you Morton's Stoves in Battle Ground and Kuma.

My wife and I are very excited about our new stove. It heats so much more than our old stove. All about Chimneys did a great job removing and installing, then taking the time to give us tips on using it.

Easy to Load

This stove is easier to load and to remove ashes than our older stove. We love the ability to load at night and have a nice warm house in the morning. It is a nice looking stove. The installation guys were great as usual, (they have cleaned and done repairs on the old stove for years). The guys at the shop in Rathdrum were wonderful. Answered all of our questions.

Amazing Burn Times

Absolutely love our wood classic! Heats our 2000 sq ft home with vaulted ceilings perfectly and has amazing burn times!

More than 12 hour burn time

Our Stove is Wonderful, it shuts down like its suppose to and you can see the flame and it doesn't make the window black. More than 12 hours later I still have wood in the stove.

Performs very well

This is my first wood stove and I absolutely love it. It is very well built compared to others that I have looked at. This stove seems to be very efficient and puts out a great deal of heat. It fires up quick and burns completely. I have used it as a primary heat source and it has performed very well. I am pleased that it is capable of heating my entire larger home...not just the room it sits in. I wanted a stove with minimal maintenance that I can "fire up and forget about" and this seems to be it. I installed it myself in November, it is now March, and I haven't had to do a thing other than emptying the ash pan regularly and clean the glass occasionally. I probably wouldn't even have to clean the stove pipe or chimney the way it looks. I used a larger pellet stove for the previous two years but it was too expensive to operate as it burned 3 bags per day on high. It also required at least one weekly cleaning which wasn't difficult but my new Wood Classic requires less time and effort to maintain and I get more heat out of it. Thanks for a great product...it's nice to be able to buy something that is still manufactured with quality and integrity in mind.

Heats a Large Area

Works great & heats a large area, savings us using as much oil to heat other areas. It will pay for itself in 2 or 3 years, or less

We appreciate your craftsmanship! Thanks so much

Easy to Operate

Installed it myself with my son's help. Replaced a Vermont Castings Encore. Am still breaking the Kuma in but am very impressed with how much more manageable and easier to operate it is than the Vermont Castings was.
