Probably the same reason Keystoker doesn't have their own forum...they have been in the game a long time and expect the installer/dealer to know what they're doing. The great part of burning coal is if you you come to this forum and ask an intelligent question, someone will answer it...each brand of boiler has its own following.
A friend of mine runs a Coalgun boiler, I am an EFM guy, my neighbors run Keystokers, the local coal dealer is a longtime AA man...you know what we all have in common? Our houses are very comfortable and we aren't going broke buying fuel oil or propane.
I suggest you research the boilers sold by your local dealers/installers, and pick the boiler that best fits your needs based on capacity, the basement door, and any other requirements you might have.
