Looking for a Hand Fired Boiler.

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.

Hi folks,

I am looking for a hand fired boiler. It could be an old Weil McClain, American radiator/ Ideal, Kewanee, Fitzgibbons, etc. It must have steam tappings (for gage glass, etc.). I am looking for a boiler in the 200,000 BTU range. Slightly less or more BTU's is acceptable.

The idea is to have this boiler be a backup in case of a power outage, or if I wanted to use the hand fired while maintaining the S260. The boiler room is going to be refurbished, so I would like to have all the boilers in place, as it is going to be a fire safe / rated boiler room with an air tight door and exterior combustion air supplying the boiler room. (1 cu. inch for every 1000 btu.). The boiler can be no wider than 29". My 260 fit fine through the door.

Thanks.
