User Review: Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove (Brinkmann)
Price Paid: $36
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT ! I bought this dangerous piece of... "equipment" at Walmart in Lawton, OK. on Sheridan Rd. I paid $36 plus tax. I'm more than experienced in the outdoors. I keep my equipment clean and in good working order.
Like in the other reviews I had regulator issues with the line splitting on my Ozark Trail / Brinkmann, 2 burner. The stove worked for a grand total of about 10 uses. It was not abused or dropped. The bottle was properly installed.
So I disassembled the stove to further inspect, where I discovered the lines are sub-quality and had split at the valve under the cover, so even if I could replace the regulator, it still could have exploded when I lit it next. Bad, Bad, Ju-ju! I'm glad I checked out my gear.
The other line split was under the cover and out of view at the underside connecting valve. The line was nearly severed at the connector, and just snug enough to keep fuel flowing to the burner heads. It appeared glued instead of brazed into place and easily could have caused a catastrophic failure. Just imagine a 5' foot flame-thrower emitting at waist level.
Like another reviewer, I will now get an older Coleman stove and convert it to propane. Spend the money. This thing is unsafe and junk.
