I found Country fireplace in Dupont. That's where I plan on checking it out at. I would like to pickup the new stoker this weekend. If i can't get it at Country fireplace i will run down to Drums. What's the name of the place in Drums?

I think the EFM is the best stoker ever made. A real Swiss Watch of stokers, no doubt about it. :D

They are not a stove(not to get technical about it :lol: ) but a great choice, then again, the power went out a week ago, and the axeman I could hand shake and keep it going, don't think that would of been possable with the EFM, don't let that stop you.

I shall install a freshly rebuilt Efm this summer as soon as I have the garage area modified and chimney installed. And its electrical power will be wired to the generator panel just like the oil furnace is, so when the power goes out the generator will keep it going.

yes, i've been known to procrastinate, this website educated me quite well on the various units out there. The Efm best fits my needs it would seem. :pepsi:

If you have a good chimney, a periodic hand-cranking will keep an EFM burning for days...but why bother if you have a generator.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT :doh: :gee: How do you hand crank, off the motor ??? Guess I could rig up an old bicycle with a chain to the axeman, and get things crank'in , if I can only pedal fast enough :stretcher:

The end of the clutch driveshaft is square, and they provide a hand crank that fits it.

I have a Keystoker 90K that I bought brand new and installed in November, 2010, which I am very happy with. I am new to coal burning and don't have anything to compare with though.

I have a Liesure Line Hearth model and it works perfectly. I really have no complaints. The only time the fire goes out is when I forget to put coal in it. I heat basically my whole house with it. My basement is 80 degrees and dry, the main floor is about a steady 70 all winter in Connecticut. The Coaltrol works great. It always maintains a steady temperature.

I will be building a farm house in Western Wisconsin. Finding anything having to do with coal is tough out here. I am looking at a US Stove Co stove for 1802G model that hooks into my (future) duct work.

I have 30 acres and most of it is wooded. I like the idea of being able to use wood since I have vast quantities of it but the pro's of coal seem to make it nearly impossible to leave out of consideration.

Anyone have some ideas on how to get good, clean coal out here. Pro's and con's of different models furnaces.

Anything info will help. I break ground in a few months.

Thanks,

Jeff
