Everything I've seen looks like the 520 feed coal from the left side and the feeder motor on the right with the exhaust out the back. Can the feeder motor and auger be switched?

So I can put the feeding hopper on either side of the furnace?

Yes, you can put the auger on whichever side works best for you.
