Small Boiler in an 8X10 Shed? Will It Work?

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.

My boiler room isn't much bigger than that. Kaa-2 is 76K, and 22.5" x 27.5" footprint, plus hopper, iirc.

is that enough btu?

I love my Kaa-2. It replaced a small 5 section Red Square, and Iron Fireman, burned bituminous for 20 yr.

Not quite but the KA-6 is looking pretty good.
Thanks for the info everyone...
Seems like the boiler will fit. the hard part is going to be the underground piping.
