Combustioneer Model 77

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.

I hopefully will be looking at and buying a Combustioneer Model 77 at some point. Does anyone know of some things to look out for that brake or burn up on these units?

I want to thank user rockwood for the guidance he provided me. I went and looked at two Combustioneers over by Logan Ohio, I bought one of them the other one was newer but, it had been used in a shop and had some rust on it. This unit had been bought new in the 70's an used heat the house up till 3 years ago when it was replaced by a heat pump. This unit has no convection fan and was used with a air handler to pull the heat out of it. The woman that was selling it tried to get me to take both but I just don't have the room for two.

The man that had bought it new and used it was a machinist and I can see a few little things has has done to it that would make maintenance easier like a valve on the transmission drain which leads me to think it has had been well kept. If I can figure it out I will take pictures and post them.

What is an "air handler"?

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.
