Quick to load
If you fire ware that is similar in size from one firing to the next, you can leave the shelves and posts stacked in the Dragon between firings. Reach into the kiln to remove the ware and reload the kiln for the next firing.
Since you are loading from the side, you can easily see how close the ware is to the kiln walls and the shelf above. Think of how much time this will save you.
Loading a tall sculpture into a top-loading kiln requires skill and care to avoid nudging the piece against the kiln wall. Loading sculpture into a front-loading kiln is faster and easier because you can see what you are doing. There is far less risk of damaging the piece.
