You think I could make that up?? Actually, I had heard of these things, but thought they were pretty much lost to history until I found this one. As I understand it, the 85R, and the slightly more reasonable 60R, were "big brothers" of the "UFR" conversion stokers. The 85R has a 26" burn pot and weighs about as much as a complete 520 unit (around 1250 lb). If you're used to the quiet efficiency of the 520/700/900 boilers you might duck a little when it starts up, but we've been very pleased with it.
Cool!! Thanks Mike
