Hyfire II Decision

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Have to work on the price a little, what would be a fair price for a used one? I'am told it's 4 yrs. old and good shape, I havent seen the stove yet, it's a little ways from me. I've bought other stove's sight unseen and had good luck with them. I need to go bigger than the Harman mag. i'am burning,,, I think the Hyfire would do the trick!! Give me some incentive to try the L Lines out Dave!! You helped me out before with some electric math! :cheers:

They were right.

Hi Theo,
I have a HyFire I for quite a few years. I bought it new. I heated my garage beneath my house. 34 X 40 cement block building with 3 10 X 10 overhead doors. That kept the garage at 65* without struggling. I have since put a new AA-130 in and tied it into the existing radiation in the house and garage. I gave the Hy-Fire to my son. He is heating a 40 X 40 garage with 15' high ceilings. Three overhead doors. One door is 10 X 12 with the other two probably 8 X 8. The building is wood frame. It is insulated and the walls are covered with drywall or flake board. This unit has one small grate and a large grate, unlike the Hy-Fire II which has two large grates. This unit has been keeping the garage at an even 65* to 70* and it is not running wide open. It is a great stoker. I had very little trouble with it. Parts are readily available as is help from the factory. I bought mine from Jerry who was the original owner. He was great. Dave and Matt have continued the great service and quality products. Yo won't go wrong with LL. My son is also planning to purchase the new little stoker they came out with for a basement room in his house. Lots of luck.

Al
