Leisure Line on the Ground

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.

First piece of equipment is in the barn. Leisure line Pioneer LE with all it stuff is here. Still waiting on Keystoker stove and boiler.
According to my dealer, I got the order in just in time. All equipment should be on the ground by end of august. I added a stove from keystoker because leisure line could not get me another one until december-ish. :cry: So, full speed ahead on
the coal conversion.
I did put diesel stabilizer in my twin 330 gal oil tanks. They are full and I am hoping not to buy oil again! :D

Paulie,

Do you now what the date was when your dealer ordered your Keystoker boiler? My dealer ordered mine on June 3. He told me that I would get it in about 6-8 weeks. I called Keystoker and they told me it would be 12 weeks. I hope I get it by September. BYE BYE OIL!!!! :D

I ordered the keystoker boiler at the end of May. Should be on the ground late August early Sept. Leisure Line
was ordered at the same time. Two weeks later I decided to put a stoker in my Retail Green House. Called Leisure Line....
and was told maybe December. Called Keystoker dealer, 6-8 weeks. Keystoker does runs. Stoves for a week, furnaces the
next, boilers the next, etc. I wanted another Leisure Line, but need that green house for Christmas sales. So, Keystoker it
is. Should be O.K., as both are highly regarded. I have 22.5 tons of bagged rice coal, going to order another load. I am going
to sell and use it.
I wanted a stove dealership, but these guys are flat out. " Love to have you, as we have no dealers near you, but......
can't touch you now!" Not what I wanted to hear, but I will try again in December, when they start to slow down.....if they
slow down!
Bottom line......NO OIL. I do not hate Bush or the Sheik Abba Du, I am just unwilling to pay them any more. I would much
rather give my $$ to somebody in North East Penn. I feel fortunate that anthracite coal country is only 500 miles from
me. Everything old is new again! 8-)
