Lets also factor in Joe that this is the older combustion draft induced burner without the glass door. With what I know today I don't think I would want the current draft induced combustion version. For similar money I would buy a p105 Harmon - or as I say spend the extra for a BAXI. But I now burn baby Boiler because I found him as an orphan on a demo site - he had heated a two unit apartment and a bar in his previous life on cheep Marth pellets with the pellet pot I show above. That fuel wasn't as rich as the fuel I burn today so I can see how it worked - my result on the pot = I couldn't get enough combustion air to the fuel and is burnt rich and cold - reducing the third and second feed cup with a shim leaned the mixture for the hottest burn on the pellet pot. Yes I am achieving a 15% ROI over gas today - but to do that I had to secure a full truckload of hi quality fuel at a low price. Could I have made more on my 2 year supply fuel investment - possibly - but it wouldn't have been as much fun! performance today = I filled the hopper at 6:30 am - at 1 about 20 lbs has been consumed. 40% duty cycle appx??? Hi 20 outdoors and a nice summer breeze - Ill pull the degree day data tomorrow if you like. Here is an excerpt from a chat with a user of the new version and the drama he faces - OF course I don't wish this critique to halt the free flow of ideas you may have - But I recall your buddy was happy to be a new dealer and may benefit from this exchange. A major problem with the PB150 is that the fan needs to be cleaned and the company left you no damn way of cleaning it. It is IMPOSSIBLE to take the fan off of the Boiler the way they have it designed now unless you disassemble your chimney pipe and who wants to do that? Nobody! So the only way to reliably and easily clean your fan is that I took a Sawzall and carefully cut off a section of he collar that currently blocks you from unbolting and removing your fan assembly. I sliced it up about 1 inch to the top of the collar and then across the entire top collar to remove a flat rectangular piece of metal. Then, you can unbolt your fan assembly and take it outside and blow it out with compressed air. Unless you don't mind you and your basement covered in ash, you have to blow these things out outside. If you blow them out while they are still attached to the boiler it is messy and I honestly believe a health hazard to have all that ash chit flying around or laying in your basement. Very very fine and very very dirty. Go to the auto store and get some gasket cork and while you still have the original fiberglass gasket, make up a new gasket from cork and make up a spare as well. Keep the original Fiberglas gasket as a future template in a safe place. Oh yes. Pinnacle hard wires the fans to the control box so to save you the grief of f*#^&)ng with the wire each time you clean your fan, I cut the cable and the wires halfway and rigged up a 3 prong plug deal. That way in the future you just unplug the fan and take it off. Reinstall it and plug the 2 plugs back together and you are in business. o.k.. so now we have a nice gap to spew smoke out of right where we cut the collar!?!? Cut your self a piece of that gasket cork and you will need to make up / bend up a strong "u-clip" out of spring steel that will hold that cork against the pipe collar. What will even ensure that you get ZERO smoke is that you pack the gaps with tin foil and I have never ever had a smoke leaking problem. Maybe a little puff when you first fire it back up but just take a flat screwdriver and smush the tinfoil into the gaps harder and you will not have a problem. I have found that I need to remove and clean my fan about every 5 weeks. Folks. There is no other easy way around cleaning this fan assembly unless you want to be very dirty, spend hours with a bul^#^t toothbrush and a vacuum nozzle. Believe me when I tell you that unless you clean your fan, you will lose so much draft that you will get "cold fires" which results in a sh*^%y burn. I have done a lot of modifications to the PB 150 so if there is something that I left out... just ask me and I will be happy to clarify. WARNING: The bolts that hold the fan assembly on. DO NOT STRIP or damage them! God help you if you do. Another nice design of Pinnacle is that if you wreck of these..... good luck tapping and dying to fix them. They should have just been simple nuts and bolts.... but hey... that would have been too easy.
