why are some people fittting the coal-trol to the harmons
captcaper wrote:My Super Mag Harman has been running since Oct. It's perfect. The new Supermag is awesome. Simple in build and simple to use. Parts are Generic in case you need one. No need for a Coal Trol. I use the room probe extended out to 38 ft from stove and it keeps the house living area were the probe is to within 1 degree and never changes no matter what the temp outside does. The hot air is ducted to the living area. Temps have ranged from 8 deg to 60 here.
The ash pan will fill up so 200 lbs isn't that great and that size hopper takes up a lot of room. The beauty with the Harman is that all air can be blocked from coming out the front vents and redirected to the duct work for forced air. My basement stays at 68 and so does my upstairs due to this setup.
We have folks here who use the Super Mag now for 6 years and have never had an issue. And these are NH winters not girly type winters the guys get down south
Their Customer service has been fine. They have emailed back a few times helping me with my installation. My Blazchek coal dealer has one now for years and raves about it. Never had an issue. He's a excellent auto mechanic as his main business and I got it because of his recommendation.

Sounds like you have your own rant or personal problem. There are those of us that support someone who's heavily involved here at the very Board that You have come to for no-cost information and advice. Touch a nerve? Nope,but I wish more of you would look at the facts. No one ever faces the facts that the other guys have zero presence here,by choice......That's progressive 'fer 'ya !
Thanks for reading my post, Let's support the industry.
Bashing certain brands won't help anything. If you like a certain brand of Stove just say it without casting dispersions on the other manufacturers. Last I looked Alaska, Reading, Hitzer etc. do not have a presence here either but I'm sure they have a solid product or they wouldn't exist in a niche market like home coal burning.
I try to appreciate what manufacturers do. Guys like LL Co. who put their personal touch on service and the chance they took to buy the company and Harman for linking to a corporate partner to allow the brand to exist innovate and continue to supply a product for those of us that use Anthracite.

However, im not buying it to look at and the cost of replacement parts sems steep. I'd think that if they have a hopper that takes 20lb of ash, the ash pan would be able to accomidate it, correct?
