After my first season of burning coal, I'm hooked! I figured it's time to "step it up" and replace the old Dutchwest with a true coal burner. I ended up going with the DS Machine DS1500 circulator with hopper. I managed to get it into my basement, now I just need to get the new hearth built. I have 462 white lorraine full range brick on order from glen gery, they should be here next week!
Here are some pics!
At home, in the garage, still wrapped
My Dad gave me a hand lowering the stove into the basement
Here it is at the bottom of the basement steps. It will be here for several weeks until the new hearth is complete.
