Axeman on the Half Shell

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.

Funny, I often have found myself saying the same thing over the past two years as over 25 boilers, stoves and furnaces have migrated through my garage and outbuildings! :roll: :lol:
