Stoker Coal Boiler: Freedom Boiler Eliminator 36

Post By: oldbay » Sat. Dec. 16, 2017 9:55 pm

Hi, New here. Probably in the wrong place. I am desperately seeking any information or manuels you can provide on a used stove I purchased. I've exhausted all my avenues. Its a Freedom Wood fired Boiler, Model: Eliminator36. Made in PA. Company went out of business and has left no footprint or paper trail that I can find. I have looked in many different forums without any luck. The man I purchased it from said he had all paperwork. Upon pickup he could find nothing. I don't know anything about the BTU, water capacity, recommended water additives and antifreeze requirements, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve

This is an outdoor boiler I think. If I recall correctly, Freedom was started by a brother who was in the same family that builds the Mahoning line of outdoor boilers up in Mahaffey. For whatever reason he was displeased with the arrangement and left the company to begin manufacturing his own line. I think it was a rather short lived venture as there are not many around here but I do know of a few. I think that after the company fell through, Mahoning picked up the warranty work for the remaining boilers in service, although I’m not 100% sure.

If it were me, I would perhaps contact Mahoning, I feel sure they could at least steer you in the right direction.
