    i was first thinking of a hx but if i don't need it would like to see that one. i do have radiant floor heat. greenfire just sent me 2 diff. ones very generic illustrations no specifics like hx or not and expansion tank things like that. does yours have heat exchangers or do you plumb right into the house from the boiler?thanks ryan

    Here is all of them Rsnider. Do these links take up space on this board or just the photo site? Mr. Moderator let me know if you want me to take them down...

    greenfire must be using all of seton info along with the design. does greenfire have a deal with seton to use all the web stuff. they must have the rights or something from seton to use all the same stuff and build the boiler the same.

    sparke thanks for all the info. i think I'm sold on this boiler. looks to be good build and the price i was quoted was very nice. 4400 for greenfire compared to the 9900 for the blue forge i was quoted is a big difference. the only other one even close to that price is the eco from cozy heat top banner. i will prob. get it soon as the weather breaks and can pour a concrete pad for my shed it will go in. keep the progress of the workings of this boiler coming.thanks ryan

    cast refractory can be reinforced with stainless steel needles or ceramic fibers.

    Does the Greenwood or the Seton have an ash pan on the bottom? What is the life expectantcy of the refractory?

    Thanks, Mainewood

    one more question how do you move a boiler like this? If its in the back of a truck or on a trailer how something this heavy be moved into its position. 2800lbs is allot to move. any suggestions. i assume fork lift from the supplier onto your truck or trailer. how do the suppliers expect you to ever move this thing. just sitting and thinking of how to move this boiler or any of this type of boiler seton, greenwood, greenfire or the bigger one like garn. i think the eko and econo burn are a little lighter at over 1000 or so.

    rsnider, I have moved this type of boiler/furnace with a skidsteer equipped with forks. You can usually rent them for around $200/day.

    mine came on a pallet. so we used a hand jack and a ramp to get it off the trailer. then rolled it on plywood to get it in the cellar.
