How would this work?
Run the "dust collector" piping into the furnace/boiler in the location of the ash pan. Fabricate a "bin that the dust collector pipe would connect to and then suck the ash right out of the appliance.
Would this have any effect on the coal fire on the grate?

I would think i shouldn't make any difference. When you open the ash door the draft will be pulling thru the firebed and not effect the bed at all. I would be more concerned about sucking up a hot piece of coal, make sure the ash container is located outside for safty sake and away from combustionables. :blowup:

Not my install, but, I see it as like a *whole house vac system* w/ the cyclone mounted over top of a galvanized trash can and located outside in a safe convenient location. Some thought goes into how it will get disposed of from that location and how much quantity is allowed to accumulate before doing so.

Then when ash removal from the coal unit is required, just use a flex hose attachment to vacuum ashes through metal round duct to the outside trash can. Shop vac only provides the suction and doesn't receive any ashes or dust...shop vac's filter is maintenance free. :)

I wouldn't recommend any permanent connection to the ash pan area. :no1:

I did some wondering today, not really thinking
the blower we have for the air handler, you know that blow air thru the duct?
anyway, here it come...........
maybe, JUST maybe, get a blower from work, make a reducer from the opening on the side of the blower to a 4" round, the take 4" hose from blower to my new cyclone, then a 2.5" shop vac hose to clean out the boiler, mean while this setup be outside and the shop vac hose thru basement window.
Any comment? sure would like some
