Wagener Leon RRP $3749.00*

Wagener Leon

Freestanding Multi-Fuel Fire

Availability: Product not in stock!

The Wagener Leon is Sparky’s big brother and has evolved because you asked us for a larger version of this extremely popular wee fire.

Leon has all the features of Sparky but with an increased heat output of 16-18kw, an optional 3kw wet back delivering plenty of hot water and a fixed log box base for storage.

The name Leon is in recognition of Leon Kernot who started the family business and designed the first ever original Wagener Stove (Cooktop) some 40+ years ago. Leon the man was hardworking, entrepreneurial and very popular and that is our expectation from this stove. Leon the stove is designed by son Barry and partner Ngaire, who are currently still in the business, and are handcrafted and dispatched by the grandsons Troy, Kyle and Adam along with the rest of the Wagener Stoves team.

Leon has been built to work hard and stand the test of time just like his forebear the original Wagener Stove. He will keep you warm and cosy on the outside and will boil the kettle or cook a pot of soup or stew to warm your insides too. Leon can also be fitted with optional cook top rails as we do on Sparky, Wagener Trivets also available.

Heat Output

The Wagener Leon generates a comfortable 16-18 kw (estimated) heat output. A 3kw “Lion” wet back can be fitted to heat your hot water.

Wood Size - Depth maximum 410mm (Advised Max 380mm), Diameter maximum 240mm (Advised Max 200mm)

(We say estimated as we do not have specific test results from the laboratory at the time of clearance testing to the NZ Standard. The estimate is on lab controlled pine fuel tests. However in real life you will use a variety of fuels and load your fire in a real life situation. Years of solid performance have not disappointed our customers)

 Proudly New Zealand Made

Why choose a Multi-Fuel burner if I don’t intend to burn coal ??

  • Fitted with a grate and ash pan for ease of cleaning out the ashes.
  • Has an additional air control delivering air under the grate for better control and better combustion.
  • Additional air introduced under the grate makes lighting your fire much easier.
  • Additional air assists when the draw on your fire is compromised by still nights.
  • Additional air will assist burning when your fuel is not so well seasoned.

NB remember if you are not burning coal to turn this lower air control off after around 30-40 minutes and just use the top air control to regulate your fire.
