Hi everyone,
I have an original vermont castings vigilant. I bought the first in
the late 70's when they first came out. The fireback cracked and
so i drove up to Vermont and they replaced it with the newer
0039IA model which could also burn coal. I heated my house
for years with it. I still use it. I am currently getting ready to
remove the coal grates and return it to full wood burning
capabilities. All of the old manual are still available online. You
can burn in upright position or flip the damper on the left hand
side and burn horizontal using secondary combustion. You can
load the stove from the top griddle before going to bed and have
it burn slow and hot, all night long and still have a fire come
morning. Mine has been going for 32 years now.
