    I was talking to a friend and former coworker who was lamenting the amount of sawdust, wood chips' and small wood pieces he throws away. So one of you guy's must know of a boiler/or stove he can use to heat his house. I'm thinking the corn type biomas boiler would be good but I'm still learning. Thanks for the help in advance

    A gasification boiler will burn that kind of stuff, as long as it's not too dry.

    I know people who have used the big'uns on this and were happy with the dyes, service and support.

    I don't know what kind of operation your friend is starting, but he may use something smaller.

    Also notice they pedal baggers
