I’m just curious as to how much coal does it hold on a refill?
Also does it ever have a problem with getting all clogged up with clinkers?
On Refill, mine is half a bag.

On this coal forum I found a used TARM boiler. It uses a Samson controller which senses the water temperature and then controls the air draft.
It burns coal like a dream. I love it.
My model is FT22, built in 1980. 22 Mcal/hr.
I’d post an ad in the classified section.

Just based on the reading I've done. For my own purpose I would consider a Chappee,Harman,or DS Aqua Gem. For used Hand Fed units.

I did an inquiry on the DS 9158 hand fed boiler doing hydronic floor heating. I provided some general heating and insulation information with room sizes and was given an answer that it "would be perfect" for my setup. I took a pic of my long winded details of my house, read it if i attached it properly, compare to what you have and know about your place and maybe it will help you. Good luck.

You are going to need to do more work to find the right boiler
for this rather than getting an answer over the phone.
You need a manual J heat loss assessment done first.
