The Best wood/coal boilers

PostBy: efo141 On: Fri Jun 20, 2008 7:41 pm

Can someone suggest some good wood/coal boilers?(a good coal burner) A friend wants a Harmon sf-260 but dealers are not taking orders or down payments. He needs a boiler, he is ordering a truck load of coal next week. He wants the option of wood if the price of coal goes way up. Any info will be helpful Thanks Ed

As far as I know, New Yorker makes a wood/coal hand-fired. I think they are owned by Burnham.

Any hand feed coal boiler will burn wood, but most wood boilers won't burn coal.. so what you want is the Harman, New Yorker, or other coal boiler..
