Probably to use less material, just as easy to stamp big depressions on the bottom of the stove case to act like legs.

Do the old models with legs have the heat shield under the burners? I thought those were added when the legs were removed. My 425E doesn't seem to get too hot underneath.

I was wondering about that, why the 425D has the red legs, or if there is any utility at all from extending the stove a couple inches above the table surface. I can't really think of any benefit.

My 425NL is my favorite small cased stove and works well. No added heat deflecters and the legs do a good job holding the lid closed and setting upright.

I've melted the top of a Roll-A-Table using my 426A with the legs extended. I don't know how well the heat shield on the newer stoves works, but....

The legs, to me, are a bit problematic.
The straight legs of the NL and B are just awful. The crooked legs of the C and D are better, but you still have a very narrow support base that can be an issue on things like picnic tables. I'm sure more than one person had some form of an accident while not setting the legs up proprerly. I'm guessing when they went to a latch system (the legs also hold down the lid) they saw an opportunity to ditch the legs. That said, my favorite user stove is the 425D.

Not looking for anything. I have too much already, my wife says.
