Are you definitely in need of a new unit? I know of an AHS that doesn't have a domestic coil that you can drive back home with, hook it up and be running the next day. ($3000). 400 lb hopper, not an auger. If you want an EFM or AA just ask for one, new or used. Keystoker unit near me ordered in May 08, arrived March 09, burned 600 lbs, and now they have decided to sell it and 5 tons of buck (in bags) ($5500) PM me if you like, I can get you burning coal in less than 1 week.....and with a coal bin filled with your choice of coal suppliers.
If you want an EFM, you can start at 3K for a rebuilt unit and go to 9K depending upon your needs. EFM offers the $1500 energy rebate, so you can chop 1500 off you tax bill if that is a concern.
Look into the Royall line of hand feds and stokers. Very nice equipment, latest technology.
I burn in everything but a Keystoker, so if you need to see them running, not in a showroom, but in real life, PM me and you can do just that. If I had a Keystoker, I'd have that heating a building also.
If you like a hand-fired, I have a couple of old timers that still work just like the day they arrived here.
I even have a 1925 Glenwood cabinet heater #16 that has been fired for 3 weeks in a garage. 5 minutes twice a day, 89 years old and if burns perfectly to this day! Lots of choices, don't get sucked in by the fast talkers, read the forum, do your homework, then you will be the winner!
Thank Gawd you know the difference between a boiler and a furnace......whew! That is a dead giveaway....except for EFM....electric furnace man, however they did make air and water units that shared the same name.......
