If you are in need of a more conventional heating solution that requires no power look no further. Unlike an automated stoker boiler these units do not require power to generate heat. They can be set up wiith pumps like a typical boiler or a gravity fed sytem insuring heat during power failures. Models include many New Yorker coal boilers, EFM WCB-24 and others. Some of these units can also burn wood.

Beside Harman SF-260, what other manufacturers make a mid size, hand fired boiler. I need about 100,000 btu's.

logwood boiler made in Richford, NY. Two sizes, I had the three foot long firebox x 18" wide and a shaker gr8 on the whole thing . I filled in half of the bottom with fire brick in an angle iron cage to reduce the size. The thing burned great but was just to big. I used to place one piece of hardwood in the center an pile coal on both sides , the wood kept air in the middle and I rarely had any trouble. But ......it wasnt a stoker and I could never go back. I think the large unit is around 5k and could easily put out 200k btu. smaller one around 4k and 125k btu. extremely well built.
