Pellet stove exhaust

I just purchased a new Harmon Absolute 43 pellet stove. The exhaust outlet is close to the floor and is 3". Can I run the chimney pipe down about 10" and go thru the crawl space about 9' out the foundation, and go up from there? If not, could I add a exhaust blower? Please advise, Thank you, Yoogie

No, your pipe can not run lower than the stoves outlet. Follow the manufacturers recommendations for the install.

I agree.
The stove needs to be installed the way the mfr intended.
Also, just a heads up..........Most insurance companies require that you notify them of this install as it could affect your house insurance.......as in you might not have any if try to make a claim.
