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.

Yes, you can. You'll have to change the air tube assy and use a 1.5 gpm nozzle, but the rest is OK. You can have the cost of the Chassis assembly removed from the oil kit price, which includes the necessary items to have the oil burner option.
