    Default Leader 2x4 Vermonter Raised Flue

    In the new Leader catalog I see they are now offering a 2x4 Vermonter pan. What caught my eye was that it is a raised flue. At first I thought it was a typo but the float valves are inside the pan. This seems like an nice hobby pan. The Youtube video I found says it retails for $1850 which is a good price point. I can't wait to see some reviews on it. Has anyone offered a raised flue Vermonter pan before?

    Small brothers made a 2x4 hybrid in the 80s , 2x3 raised flue section, think it was 8, 4" flues, and a 2x1' 2 compartment syrup pan. I think Grimm made one similar.

    I assume that's for pan only. That's a pretty good value for a raised flue with floats included. Too bad it's a "hybrid" pan, but it's built to a nice price point.

    Yes. Bill's pan is very nice! I had never seen a raised flue hybrid pan before.
