No the 700 900 & 1300 uses a whole different stoker assembly then the 350 or 520.
The first S-15 Pot used a 14" ash ring The S-20 stoker uses a 14.5" ash ring on top of pot
EFM made & still makes a S-22 pot ring that is 15.5" which gives a extra 5k of btu per hr .
The 700 900 ad 1300n Are much bigger pots and the rotate knocking off the ash as well as using bigger Auger's
and tubes .
Feed rates where higher 700 3lbs per hr per tooth max feed rate 10 teeth 30lbs per hr.
With Buckwheat size coal Rice would be 1/2 lb more per tooth . 700 900 1300
900 feed rate 3.5 lbs per tooth 10 teeth max 35lbs per hr
1300 Feed rate 4.5 lbs per hr per tooth max 45lbs per hr
The S-15 stoker pots had a feed rate of 2.5 lbs per hr per tooth 6 teeth max 15lbs per hr
The first S-20 pots 2.5 lbs per hr 8 teeth max 20lbs per hr
The newer S-20 pots 2.5lbs per hr 10 teeth max 25lbs per hr
All with rice coal using buckwheat size the feed rate is 2lbs per hr per tooth .
Look at the links below to see the difference between 350 520 and 700 900 1300http://www.efmheating.com/manuals/DF520 ... lation.pdfhttp://www.efmheating.com/manuals/Stoker%20Manual.pdf
