I'm at 1500 ft here in Madison County.... it howls here!
Hopper fires. Went on one last night on a Hitzer 710 which is basically a Koker clone. Homeowner wasn't educated enough on maintenance and installation procedures.
Although there is a small sliver of coal users here on this forum,(as compared to the total overall number of coal burners in the N.E.)who have done wonderful installations and really know their stuff, there is a huge percentage of DIY installs done terribly with gear sold by dealers who don't know much more than the homeowner, which result in things like hopper fires which result in all the used stoves you see advertised for sale.
Sorry, I'm venting a little
I just get frustrated sometimes.......
