Why Did Harman Drop the DVC-500?

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.

Looks like this is the closet stove on the market. Not much to look at but I wonder how it compares as far as ease of use and heating performance. It's only rated for 40K thats about 1/2 my dvc-500 output. http://www.alaskastove.com/stoker1.html
