Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

Coal Bin Contruction for the DF520 Coal Stoker Boiler at EFM

EFM-520 Build Thread

Also print out the manual and see the coal-bin plans in the back: http://c326988.r88.cf1.rackcdn.com/DF520-Installation.pdf

There is a coupling in the auger and also in the pipes that allows you to pull the bin auger & pipe out of the bin.
