Hello I was wondering if the wind screen spacing has varied on the 425 stoves over the years? I have a 5-79 425E and the windscreen spacing is not allowing me to fit my lodge griddle without it being pushed forward which may burn the paint on my stove. It fits nicely without the wind screens, but I need to be able to use them when its cold or windy.

The 425E spacing measures 14.75 inches, the Lodge griddle is 16.75.

Do earlier models of the 425's have more room?

Greeting and welcome from Chicago. My 425B (pictured) measures 16-1/4 " between the shields. Still a bit under your griddle dimension but closer. You may want to consider a 413 or even a 426 series stove. Having some space between the griddle and the sides of the case would save your paint from damage and allow air flow.

Thank you for that 16-1/4" measurement. It sure looks close, I wonder if it would work because of the radiused corners on the griddle if the windscreens were at their widest position.

There is a red tank 425B for sale that I've been watching, I may be tempted to get that. I do have a 414 and my eye is out for a 426 if one comes up nearby.

I like the 425 size stove for at home on the deck because it stores inside my gas grill.

Do you have a Coleman oven?  If so, then you could cook a Turducken inside your oven on your 425 on your Weber. A double trifecta?  I don’t know what I’m talking about but it’s fun. 😁

If you put a griddle on a Coleman stove, you will burn the paint.

Even a Coleman coffee maker on a 426 burns the paint.

That's a re-painted stove.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Looks like the grill on that 426 is even in height with the case of the stove and the coffee maker is right on it.  (Though the heat channel shape is only over the burner).

The 425E has the grill on top of the case. With the griddle centered on the grill, it doesn't overhang the painted case of the stove.

Your paint is still burned in front of the main burner.

Anyone try using aluminum foil as a heat shield? Does it work? Too late for mine 😉
