What Size Ash Can ?

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.

You can't get away from that residual ash. when the ash falls into the bucket, it kicks up the lighter-than-air powder. The next time you empty your ash pan outside, just throw the contents onto the ground (double check the wind direction!!). That Hiroshima type ash cloud that you create is the same thing that happens inside the stove, only on a much smaller scale.

Democracy rests upon the principle that collective wisdom arises from a pool of individual ignorance. A Republic rests squarely upon objective law, and fundamentally upon those laws which restrict the scope and actions of government.
