That range is classed as domestic which has different standards than commercial ranges. If my father were alive, he could quote the AGA and UL standards for gas and electric appliances as he was an engineer dealing with commercial and domestic appliances for over 35 years. Check with the dealer for spec's. We replaced our electric range with a gas range- same location and no modification to the cabinets. And my son did the rerouting of the gas line. He is an ME with an extensive background in appliances. I would trust him more than a plumber.
I sold restaurant equipment and supplies for five years. The builder would put in a domestic range, get the inspection, then install the commercial range. After inspection, anything goes. Same with toilets- put in one of the new low-flush toilets, get it inspected, then put on one of the old types. Every notice how long the old toilets last at the curb? People pick them up and replace the new types. My BIL says they leave skid marks.
Found out how to open links! Now I can read Harry's links! Hooray! The last line of the first part is the clincher. The ranges, Wolfe, et al., are not described as commercial or domestic. That would raise the question to me. Commercial gas and electric appliances have a higher BTU or wattage rating than domestic appliances. That is the difference in the standards. Go online and compare the BTU output of a domestic gas range and compare it to the commercial range. You will find there is a big difference.
Edit- The allowable dimensions are for the overhead dimensions. Go back to my previous statements on ratings. BTW, an exhaust hood is to remove heat from the cooking area. Most domestic hoods just circulate the hot air back into the kitchen.
Life is like water-skiing; if you slow down, you go down.
