Yeah you've got a good point there! I probably would've wrapped myself around one of the apple trees .... I tend to have a heavy .. thumb .. on this thing. Plus the brakes were designed for maybe 2k lbs on a good day ...
Whelp ... We couldn't take it any longer. 2 days ago, house was 72° ... just 12 hours later on Sunday morning it had dropped to 64° (got down in the 40's that night). This morning, it was 61° (38° out).
So I threw the coils, grates, firebrick, doors & pipe on and lit up. Same deal every damn season ..... what should take 10 minutes takes all friggin' day, fixing leaks in that damned elbow I made for the coils!
I must've been in and out, up & down these damn stairs 100x today. Hook everything up, load up with Ultra Copper, turn water on, sprays everywhere. Go out to barn, re-solder, come back in, now won't line up! Go back out, reaheat, move into position, now it leaks again!!! Every F'ing year I go through this *censored*!!
It's got a slow drip now. The hell with it.
At leas the house is getting warm .... only, I ain't burnin' coal
It's amazing how much warmth was contained in the decking of the back section of my barn!
But, with wood I've forgotten how much work it is to put the heat out. I lit up around 15:00 .... and as of right now I've loaded it up 3 times already!
