    Got to work and installed the Crosslink and plumbing to heat 1500 sq ft of slab and side leg on water heater to heat domestic water supply. Very minor couple of leaks and will finallize install next spring when things warm up and see if any tweeks need be done.
    Fired up last night for few hours and shutdown to check leaks and burp system and fired it hard this morning. Seems to be working good. Need some cold weather to really use its potential.[​IMG] DSCN0156.JPG

    Once I have things sorted out this season a couple of shields should make the system pretty much invisible.

    I felt bad seeing it heading into your trailer. The plate on the ash drawer held memories of a good friend. But I'm glad you got it rather then someone who wouldn't take care of it.

    I agree. But its still a Harman!!

    What slab are you heating? Garage? Basement?

    Where is the stove plugged in? I see the power cord. And I see a Outlet to the right of the stove?

    Looking forward to a review. Been talk of it here. But many object. Its big over at iburncorn.

    The crosslink is heating a leg exchanger for 110 marathon DWH then to 30x50 basement slab.
    The cord is running to a moderate sized UPS, the soon to be dedicated outlet will have its own dedicated UPS, I'm the last home on a power leg in the country and the power sometimes is a bit down and dirty. Used to be able to set watch by the 4:30 brown out.

    I love the idea of the cross link, especially with a cheap used stove. But for the price of a new Harman with cross link, you could almost get a pellet boiler, without the post-apocalyptic look.

    Is this an aftermarket add on or a OEM option?
