Flat Bed [KAA2] Vs Sloped Bed Stokers

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.

I believe that one could modify the stoker on the Kaa2 to makes the bed slope down 5 or so degrees. The mounting flage could be repositioned/rewelded, and the top opening cut so the hopper would still fit.

Yes, I have tinkeritis. Do I need help?

Yea, yea. It's going to be cold this weekend, so maybe the urge will pass.

Hey, I have one of the bigger stoker units from a hot air furnace that someone let sit in the rain and was ruined. Maybe it'll fit? :roll:
I love my Kaa-2. It replaced a small 5 section Red Square, and Iron Fireman, burned bituminous for 20 yr.
