I currently have a budrus installed. Issue is the flue collector cracked. Currently its at the shop. Guy claims in can be fixed. Someone local to me is selling a 08 harman sf-260. Is the harman better then the budrus or about the same?

I'm no expert. Not sure what particular buderus you have. I looked at one on Marketplace. Looked like tending was a pain. Id say the Harmon unit is probably better for Anthracite.
