Now that you mention the auto ash removal, I'll bet that's what my boss had way back when. The one reason I gave coal a thought is because I saw him heat his house with it back inthe 60's & 70's. I don't remember much, except the machine took coal from a large bin and the ashes came out by themselves through steel tubes and elbowed into two 30 gallon galvanized steel trash cans. He'd empty one or both cans as needed. Almost had to have been an EFM! If not for seeing that in operation I'm sure I'd have stayed with oil, or gone with wood (again). I burned wood for years and years, but got tired of all the work involved. I don't mind some work, but if I can avoid it, I do!
Was the ash can in it's own frame the cans that came with them more Square then round but could of been replaced sometime the ash can sat in a frame I will try to get a picture for you also Losch Boiler company made one to but was a little different them the EFM also if I remember Iron fireman made one to Nothing wrong with what your getting the AA
