Heard VW copied EFM is so which is best? Did they copy the design AND the quality or just the design. HO through the roof so I have to complete my conversion to coal. Need hydronic in this last part of the farm. You should all thank me, once I have spent my lifes savings on this, HO will go back to $1 a gallon and therefore I have saved the world.

Which is better? That depends if you ask a Van Wert or an EFM guy. One thing that might make a difference is capacity, the VA600 is the smaller of the two.

What are you looking to heat?
