Funny how that 'Scrapper Claus' seems to save the day......and that 'hand healing issue' is not keeping Ann Marie too happy. Orthopedic Docs call him 'Job Security'! It's a dangerous world out there...especially fighting with cast iron rigs that are sharp and very heavy! Mr Kalmbach was a brilliant man, and surrounded himself with more like him. Now if they only got the damned tankless on the front of the 520's they would have been the VERY finest! :idea:

The "85" stands for 85 pounds per hour. If you ran it at about 80% output it would be in the ballpark of 850,000 btu's/hr.

I couldn't resist to make a purchase myself....ended up filling my trailer with EFM conversion units and ashout systems. Not really sure what I got.....I figure it all out tomorrow :gee: :up:
