right now i am a bucket lifter next season once my bin is empty iam going to put in a 4 inch grain auger on a regular light switch control and i have an old auger to fabricate an ash auger for the bottom of the fire box,the stove holds about a weeks worth of coal ( about 20 full buckets),i bought this stove from
heatinnovations.com they are the mfg the guy to talk to is tim suderman 1-888-385-4328 they helped me with everything a complete flow process cad drawing tech support and even componet locations my house is 23 ft above my stove and shop is 8 feet above the stove so i had to use a pressurized system directly after the stove running aprox 260 feet to the house and only loosing 2 degrees in temp

Boy, that is a really nice looking set up!

I wonder, since you have it installed in an enclosed outbuilding, whether installing a barometric draft regulator in your pipe would help with efficiency? Just a thought.

If you get that ash removal going you will have the ultimate setup :up: ...all you have to do is monitor the system and maybe deal with a clinker or two..... :) If I were to put in a coal boiler I would do it exactly like you have.

You should be able to get a strap on at an adult book store. :doh: No serious any fireplace store or Home Depot should have one.

Great setup! I looked at those a few times over the last couple of years when I was thinking of replacing the Prill. Enjoy!!
