That's an older AHS S130 Coal Gun with the round hopper. It has the belt driven fan and the chain driven ashing. $2,000 seems quite fair indeed.

This genius obviously had too much time on his hand, a fan positioned strategically would have done a better job!

Joe, those units aren't available yet, later in June when the new K-6 arrives. He is finally going to hydronic because his split level home isn't user friendly with hot air.

I am not familiar with Powrmatic (correct spelling) and they appear to be imports from GB. 80's era machines........heads-up about sheet metal fatigue.

Nice looking Losch stoker boiler.

http://scranton.craigslist.org/for/4411332350.html

"I have a 2 zone Losh Coal Stoker in excellent condition that has been very well maintained for sale.
I have many extra parts including an extra circulator pump. Includes all the controls and ash tubs.
Anyone who knows coal stokers will tell you they are the best. It is a 124,000 BTU stoker. I heated my old poorly insulated 3,000 Sq Foot farm house with it. It will be removed and ready for you to pick up. Please feel free to contact me with any questions."

Leisure Line stoker stove for $350.

http://williamsport.craigslist.org/for/4370575807.html

"Leisure line stoker coal stove. (Rice coal) about a 50lb hopper. Self feeding. Blower. And comes with some piping as well. Asking $350 price is negotiable. No longer need as we are switching to a different heating source. The front glass panel is missing. I broke it while tryin to clean it. >.< but it has that heat stuff there now (idk what it's called) just disconnected today. And it works great. "

Handsome Antique Coal Grate - $50 (Meriden)

Nice looking coal grate for fireplace. Looks like it would be perfect for cannel or bit coal in a fireplace.

I'd love to buy this but dont have a good source of bit or cannel coal...

Joe, that unit was in a municipal setting and the Ins Company made them switch it out for an ASME stamped unit. A keystoker K12 replaced the AHS. It is in great shape, well cared for and ready for a new home........but you should have a huge demand, this is not a toy. :idea:


Almost forgot, the two hot air units you mentioned a couple of weeks ago are being disassembled right now and a new K-6 will take over the heat and hot water chores.
