Never Seen Before Hard Coal Stoker Model (Can Do Multi-Fuel)

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.

Sweet looking boiler. Based on the picture indicating temps in degrees C, I wonder if it is made overseas?

Pricing looks comparable to other stoker boilers in the same BTU range

Yep, they are just importers & they are made in Europe. The FAQ section answers many questions.

It is interesting, but would be better not having a hopper and just having a low angle auger.

Why lift fuel by hand when you can just drop it on a small auger box with a pallet jack?

Why lift 4 days of fuel at a time by hand when you can put on a months worth with no lifting?

On the other hand, I guess it does save on gym membership fees.

I guess it's a lot of boiler for a reasonably small amount of money but my concerns would be reliability and parts availability. Anybody going to give it a try??? Allegedly burns, coal and wood pellets.

I don't disagree...but like the mfgr. here, no other mfgr. can provide what you describe either.
But, as you have discovered, nothing is impossible with some thought and creativity. :)
So it is all the same...personal ingenuity and some custom fabrication is only way to have such a set-up as you describe...It certainly is not a short coming of any one product design.

It would be interesting to find out what settings they change to when burning pellets. Do they vary the air and the auger speed? As there is no mention of auto-ignition on pellets, does it vary auger speed to keep a fire or does it use a hold-fire fluff timer?
