Hyfire II Hopper Cover.

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.

Is there any reason to keep the lid on the hopper, it is much more convienient without it on. Are there safety issues or anything? To be honest, I have used it with it off for several years now, but if it should be on, I'll do that.

Hi Phil,
No need to keep the lid on. We have the lid to prevent coal dust from flying around. It's your preference to go topless.
Good question,
Jerry LLS
