Hmm draft inducer on a stoker? I don't think you would want one on a stoker... But I dunno for sure. You mean one like the tjurnland AD-1 that goes on the flue pipe?

They are used with stokers for the same reason, low draft / week chimney. Works well, but still a band-aid for the real problem

This is the draft inducer most have.http://www.tjernlund.com/Tjernlund_8500672.pdf
you cut a hole in the stove pipe,then install the inducer witch has a fan type wheel inside the pipe witch pulls the air from the stove and up your chimney creating a better draft. It can take maybe 1 hour to install.

I have a draft inducer on my flue pipe. Problem was, in the warmer months there wasn't enough draft to prevent outfires. If the outside temperature is below 55, I don't need the fan.
