Anyone know of Keystoker dealers near S. Central PA?

PostBy: nomoreoil On: Sat Mar 29, 2008 9:43 pm

I have a Harman dealer very close and am looking at the VF-3000 boiler. But before I commit I would like to look into the Keystoker boiler as well.

Does anyone know if they have a dealer near Hanover PA? Central part of the state. I'm actually a little south in northern MD, the People's Republic.

While I'm at it, should I also look at the EFM?

I would certainly look at all available units in the BTU -output range that you need... There may be some features that you want that are available only on one make.

There really are no bad stoker boilers for sale.. just different features, hopper designs. BTU outputs etc..

You could call Keystoker at 570-385-3873 during business hours and they may be able to tell you of a dealer near you. The Harman is between the KAA-2 and the KA-6 in BTU output.

I like the Harman but am willing to look at the Keystoker if anyone thinks it's a better product. Thoughts?

They are both very similar. I don't think you could say one is "better" than the other. If you have a Harmon dealer close by and he gives you good service and a good deal I would buy from him.

I would do what gaw said give them a call they have been around since 1946 you will have better customer service then harman And if there is no dealer around your area they will sell direct to you You also could take a ride down here to them
and see how they make them a talk to them direct Nothing worng with Harman Products Just no customer service you
have to go threw one of there dealers not direct to them call Keystoker or Just go to them ;)

I wrote emails twice to Keystoker, but one was unanswered and the other came back as an invalid address. Are they out of business I wonder?

You really need to telephone keystoker.. they are not very computer oriented .. But they do answer their phones...and are nice people to do business with.

They are alive and well.
