Well, I spoke with the AA factory a few weeks back. They told me list price was $6,600 and gave me the name of a local dealer. The factory said if he was over $6,600 that they would sell me one direct. Today I talked with the dealer. He said he had to call the factory to get a price. A few hours later he phoned back and told me just over $9,000 plus shipping!! Ouch! I phoned the factory and ordered it direct. I do not need the hot water coil so it was $6,455 plus shipping.
The AHS S-130 by the time you get the thermo temp sensor and the upgraded blower (which the AA has stock), it is $6,287. Now add $1,583 for a stoker (that the AA comes with) and you're at $7870. So the Axeman Anderson is over $1,400 cheaper? At that point it was a no brainer for me.
I didn't mean to say $1,583 for a stoker.... I meant to say $1,583 for an auger. So slap me!
