That's only 5% ash by weight, pretty darned good. I would be surprised if a different stove could beat that.
All of the stokers i've used put out more ash per pound of coal than the hand fired stoves and furnaces i've used. Still, I am a stoker convert. The fact that I don't need to do anything to it for 2 days is a big advantage to me.
Reguarding this threads topic;
It has been well over a decade since it made finacial sense to burn oil. People have been repairing and replacing there oil (and propane) furnaces rather than replacing them with furnaces that use fuel that costs well under half the price of oil and propane.
Who do you think is crazy?
