LL stoker pics?

PostBy: peastoker On: Sat Feb 27, 2010 3:57 pm

Hi, Tom here.
I live in Rosedale, Maryland, just outside the Baltimore city limits.
I have an AHS S130 boiler heating my "Baltimore bungalow" for four years now.

I'm retired now, and I now spend more time in my small workshop (garage)
I currently have a very small ( 25K BTU or so)
european hand fed room heater that I'd like to retire.
It just takes the chill off in COLD weather.
I am planning on buying a stoker stove for my workshop later this year.
I haven't found any stoker stove dealers near home.

I'm trying to get an idea of what's out there that would be appropriate for my needs.

I've seen pictures and diagrams of the Keystoker mechanism, all on their website.

I understand that the Leisure Line stoker mechanism is considerably different in design from the Keystoker mechanism,
and I'd really like an opportunity to look it over,
but I haven't been able to find any sort of diagrams or photos of the Leisure Line stoker mechanism.

Does anyone have pictures of the stoker mechanism,
or better yet, a video of it in action?

Thanks in advance,

Tom

Tom,

If you really want to get a look at the Leisure Line stoves, take a
drive to their outlet store in Drums, Pa. It's a bit of a drive, so
call first and make an appointment. You get to see a stove run and
a complete stoker assembly. Lots of good things to see on the way.
If you can find a dealer closer, they are supposed to have an operating
stove on display.
If you like what you see, the stove will fit in the back of a Mini Van, if the
second and third seats are removed. Call to see if they have what you
might want in stock.

Tom

Tom, welcome to the forum.

Just make another zone off your AHS S130 to a water to air heat exchanger in your shop. The AHS will likely have sufficient capacity, if not just put on house zones on a priority controller. There's at least one thread on the forum about "Modine" heaters. I use an old A/C condensing unit. It's huge and was used on a farm milk cooler refrigerant system.

A water to air system will be less expensive than an entire stoker. You would use insulated underground PWX-AL-PEX tubing to get the boiler water to your shop, assuming it's a detached garage.

Sounds like a good idea to me, plus you could heat faster with the modine than if you do not keep a fire always going in the shop stove. Here is a picture of my modine, it is over twice the btu's I need for my garage and I can take the temp. from 50 to 65 in less than 1/2 an hour. The only drawback is the fan noise.
