I would never want to try and reach that output. I would be afraid of a thermo nuclear meltdown thru the basement floor followed by a mushroom cloud over where my house once stood ha ha ha


I hear you lightning. My boiler hold 200 lbs. of coal,I think if I would ever max the boiler out, not only the coal will be glowing the boiler would be also.That would be one heck of a load.
