Woodburning and Multi-Fuel Stoves

What is the difference between these two common type of stove. Well put simply one burns wood only and one burns wood and smokeless fuel (or briquettes). The physical difference is; a wood burning stove usually has a fire chamber without a riddling grate or ash can (yes the fire is in an oblong or square open area near to the bottom of the stove). You should very rarely need to empty this stove as the wood is all burnt away. A multi fuel stove will have a riddling grate with an ash pan underneath so that the ashes can be emptied, it needs to have a space under the fire chamber so that air can get to the smokeless fuel that needs air from underneath to burn.

The pictures above are of a Morso Squirrel I was asked to restore. I think it was at least 25 years old when it was handed to me. Now after some some new parts and tlc I expect it will last another 25 years.
