Jøtul F55 Questions

hello everyone.. new to the forum, first time poster but really enjoy the reading, I’ve learned a lot.. I currently have a lopi freedom insert but have wanted to switch to a freestander. Hearth size is no issue, hearth is huge. My question pertains to the height of the f55. With a 30 inch opening hearth to top of fireplace, would I be able to fit the f55? I know it’s about 30 5/8 but I’m thinking that’s total high and the rear exit glue pipe would fit right under my brick? Thanks so much and I look forward to some feedback

My manual shows 30" to the top of the rear exit flue. Could you rear exit and install with a tee on the rear exit which would then connect to the liner? Might be worth a trip to a Jotul dealer to verify. Also ask if there is a short leg kit for this stove or if one from another Jotul model would bolt on.

Be green is right on the 30inches....just put a tape on mine as I was thinking it was a tad lower but must have been thinking center flue. Anyhow the T idea may work
