I just found these forums and you guys are great, a lot of very useful info. for a newbe here. Has anyone used Kimmels coal ? I'm looking to get a truckload of bagged delivered to Ma. and spoke with a few different companys. Some were willing to sell direct, others only through the dealer, I'd like to get bulk but can't get a truck to the spot where in would need to be dumped. The guy over at Kimmels was very helpful in getting trucking set up and just waiting for a final rate. I'm also waiting for my local dealer to get me a price on the blaschak too.
I'm also torn between 2 boilers, the Keystoker KAA-6 (which i'm leaning towrds) or the Harman Vf3K. I'm heating a 2000 sq. ft. ranch, 10 yrs. old 2x6 walls R-19, about 600-700 gals. of oil a yr. and will be running in tandom with my Well McLain oil boiler for back up. The 2 Harmon dealers here have never sold a boiler and have no idea about them, which makes me bervous in case there's ever any problems. I know they're both great boilers but to me customer service is everyhting and my local Keystoker dealers are very knowledgeable about their boilers. Only drawback on the KAA-2 is the small hopper, but i just saw that you can get an extended on 160#. Any advice or info. will be appreciated.
