Good evening guys,
I am trying to get in touch with "Coal Burner" (J.C.) as I am in need of a EFM 520 or 350. PM'ed him a couple of days ago and usualy he gets right back to me but like I said it shows that my PM's have not been read yet. Just figured I would see if anyone has heard from him lately?

Thanks,
Glenn

I wasn't questioning what boiler they required, I was just curious about the home itself. A lot of people that search out stoker boilers have older, and often interesting homes. Considering you recommended a 700, I assumed the house wasn't a 1500 sq. ft. modular.
