Hi there, I've been using a 425 for a while but the thought of being able to use larger pans (and perhaps a Coleman oven) have caused me to look at the larger 413 and the 3-burner 426.

A few questions though:
- Can anyone tell me the distance between burner centers for these two?
- How about from burner center to the side windscreen when fully extended but still attached?
- Being that both are discontinued, what is the availability of parts? I'd want to be using these year round for camping on a regular basis.

Also, what about older models like the 4M or 432, 444, others etc? My assumption is they would be of value for collectors, but not ideal to be using heavily due to lack of spares. Am I wrong?

Thanks!
Chris

Hi. I see you are in Canada. Track down a 4M, a 444, and a 446 3 burner. You'll be set. All 3 would be good to go for ages once torn apart, cleaned up, and put back together. All 3 should be findable in your area without too much trouble. The generators for the 444 and 446 are becoming harder to find in my experience, but the gen for the 4M is still available from lots of sources. Oh ya, find a 4M with the legs that lock into place once they are rotated around the stove, and the cast Bunsen. Very stable and smooth-running stoves.  

Lots of other good Canadian regular sized 2 burners out there too, but the 4M is my favorite. The US made 425E and F are good choices too.

Chris I have the measurements you requested: 426D 9 1/2" c to c burners, 6 1/2" c of burner to wind shield. 413G 11" c to c burners, 6 1/2" c of burner to wind shield. One thing not to forget is on the 426 you have that main burner in the center that has all kinds of room for any size pot. Both the 413 and 426 are great stoves but it they are bigger than what you are use to, especially the 426. It would depend on the size pots you need to cook with and how many need to be cooking at once. I am not familiar with the Canadian stoves mentioned but I am sure they are great stoves as well and might be easier for you to come by. I do not think you would have any problems finding parts for the 426 or 413 as long as Old Coleman Parts is around.     poppa

Thank you, I really appreciate your help with this. I like the compactness of my 425 but being able to use full sized pans would be really nice!

What's also nice about the 413 and 426 is that Lodge's reversible griddle fits these while the 425 is just too small.

Once you go 413 (or 426 for that matter), you'll never go back.

The only real benefit that I see to the 425 size is that it fits INSIDE of the 640 table, which is important if space is at a premium.

HI The 425 fits inside the 640 table? even with the 4  Chairs inside? Please elaborate. Thanks

If you like "nesting" gear, go with a 426.  You can get side shelves, a griddle, some utensiles, a stove stand and a smaller 222 class lantern all to fit inside it for transport.  Thats what I did with mine and while I would not want to have to carry it far, it is always a complete self contained cook station where ever it goes...
