    This is probably one of the best heat/power outputs of any stove that I have from the US.
    The lid neatly slides over the grate, and the tank is mounted externally.
    Its an awesome stove, its a shame that stoves aren't made like this anymore. Enjoy.

    Hello,

    This is a fascinating stove. I particularly like the dual controls at the front, much more practical than the Coleman. I would assume that, unlike the unequal power of the coleman burners, these are equal in output? Does the tank stow inside the case, or is it fixed in position? It gives food for thought.....

    Many thanks for sharing.

    Best regards,

    Mike.

    Most interesting indeed. It has a totally different style than my two here

    That is very cool; being a PW collector myself, I've yet to see that one myself (that ain't sayin much as my two were the first two I'd seen, lolol)

    Nice find, thanks for documenting it here for what was lost, is now found.

    I'll bet it's earlier than my two as your tank is hard-mounted outside the tank.

    Looks like parts have been replaced?
