Allen/EFM

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.

Looks like it went together pretty easily. Want some constructive criticism? Turn that cleanout lever around and run armored cable to the stoker.

It was a nice install I let the customer wire in the mechanism while I plumbed it in. May I ask the reason to turn the arm around.

Rob may have other reasons; my 2 would be that it is ergonomically better for the operator and conforms with the original design.
