Axeman Anderson

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.

Look carefully when you find a boiler....any boiler. Tankless coil area damage; fan blower chamber for rot from leaking tankless gasket; grate rollers seized and flat-spotted; ratchet mechanism bushings and pins; gearbox oil condition(test it) was the fan supported when disassembled(probably not) and is anything bent or damaged; Head bearings on the auger tube......auger condition?; solenoid and anthratube; is the base a replace item? Aqua-stats included?

My point is that you could buy one for 1500 and dump another 1500 to 2K in it. That is with YOU doing the work on the little beast. Been there, done that...... :idea: :idea: :shock:
"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a 'piece of human solid waste' by the clean end." More true today....
