In place of the regular model Bushbuddy, I will be offering a new ".006" model",
which refers to the thickness of the outer shell of the stove.
(The Ultra has a .004" outer shell; the regular model had an .008" outer shell).
It will be made with the same construction as the Ultra, with a welded in bottom panel of .004" stainless,
the only difference being the thicker material used for the outside upper part of the stove.
This will make the stove a little more rugged than the Ultra, while only adding 1/2 ounce to the weight.
About the BUSHBUDDY.006
Like the Bushbuddy Ultra, this stove was designed to provide the cooking needs of one or two people, but can also serve the needs of a family or
small group if two stoves are carried.
It weighs just 5 1/2 oz, and makes a compact package 4 1/4" in diameter and 3 3/4" high when nested (the same size as the Bushbuddy Ultra), which will
fit inside the Snow Peak Trek 900 titanium pot, and many other pots of similar or larger capacity. It's compact size and light weight make it
ideally suited to the needs of the backpacker, cyclist, and other outdoor travelers. Because it burns wood, it is a very economical stove to use.
There is also no need to carry your fuel with you wherever wood is available (it does not need batteries), making it useful for long trips, or when
traveling in remote areas of the world where liquid fuels may not be available. It is aircraft friendly too.
Under good conditions (protected from wind and rain and with a lid on the pot) the BUSHBUDDY can boil one quart of water in about 8-10 minutes. It is
a very efficient stove, consuming only about 14 oz. of wood per hour at maximum heat, less at lower heat.
Because of its unique design which uses a double wall around the firebox to preheat secondary combustion air, you will find that you can burn wood as
cleanly as a candle.
Just be sure to use dry wood only, and add it at regular intervals to
maintain an open flame.
The BUSHBUDDY is made of high quality 18% chrome 8% nickel stainless steel for
many years of trouble free use. The grate is made of nichrome wire, as in the
Bushbuddy Ultra, for the longest possible life.
