Can I use waste oil in this boiler?

As with any Beckett oil gun there are modifications that can be performed to run the unit on waste oil (adding compressed air and filtration). There are some forums or this topic such as this one found here:
http://wasteoilheaterforum.com/index.php?topic=200.0
I have no first hand knowledge of anyone doing that. I would not recommend burning waste oil in a residential burner, but if you have it in a garage or other suitable separate structure it could be done. I would say your best bet is to fully research this idea before considering it. :)

I have a Shenandoah waste oil burner, I'm interested in the WL110 if I can use my waste oil burner in it? and then switch to coal when I run out of waste oil.
Yes for a garage boiler room. The main thing it has to be easy to clean like waste oil boilers are.

The tubes are accessible by removing the top, normally a 10 minute job if you have the tools, vac and brush ready to go. The combustion area is acccesible by removing the front cover with the oil gun, there is a bracket to park the gun in while cleaning, so again another 10 minute job once you have everything ready.

I would say that it could be done, although we have no direct experience or knowledge of doing this. :)

Pfft, 10 minutes.

I have the top off, the tubes cleaned and everything back together before one cycle on the idle timer :)

Welder's gloves are your friend!! Cleaning the boiler is a piece of cake. After you've done it a couple times. You can get real thorough in less than 10 minutes. You can easily convert to oil or vice vversa in less than 15 leisurely minutes.

thanks for the replies about cleaning the boiler.
I'm looking for a smaller boiler to be more efficient with the free waste oil and when I do run out, fire the coal and save the $3+ heating oil.
Now to find one? What should I expect to pay? Someone mentioned $3995?

Suggested retail is around $4,600 without the oil gun, plus any shipping, tax, and options. You can find your closest dealer here:

You never know what you may be able to work out for a boiler in stock! Good luck with your search. :)
