So, did I miss something? Where and what is our buddy Larry Boyd up to now?
He just posted in Post 32.
I guess this thread struck a nerve. A little too close to the truth?
That is a pretty splashy looking website he has, I'll give that much.
Ok, thats what I was deducting, but was not convinced it really happened, LOL A little slow
I thought it was a rather weak defense.
He's saying.. I designed and SOLD boilers for this company... but I wasn't in charge. OK, sure.
But now... he's in charge of this new magic boiler.. and we should all trust him.
Sadly... many will believe him and his wild efficiency and warranty claims. What's that tommy boy line? I can take a dump in a box, and slap a warranty on it....
Any company (or "employees") that would rip off people to the tune of thousands deserves to be ridiculed..
I feel sorry for those uninformed people who will view his website & be sold on the sales pitch, splashy looking images, and misleading wording. ['Smoke-Less' = ?]. Simple comparison of the images of his current units with ones of the infamous Free Heat Machine (who can forget the Youtube vid of that poor fellow with the mountain of wood and no way to burn it anymore) will show that they appear to be the same furnace with a different paint job. There is no way that unit gasifies, as the PR claims, with that huge single wet wall steel fire box no matter how much you 'pressurize' it. Goodbye disappearing wood pile. It is rather ironic that if you view one of the Youtube vids, the next vid that pops up for viewing is one of the P&M Optimizer - night & day. I think I'd take Steve Maxwells advice over LBs any day. Feel bad for Timber Ridge failing due to the economic downturn - but relieved it wasn't rather from something like rotting boilers.
boy did I screw up!! you only have to put in "6 sticks" for "a couple days" of heat in one of these I could get away with only burning 1/2 a cord a year! The efficiency must be around 900%
But don't worry if you've missed out on buying one of these. I'm sure good old Larry is currently perfecting cold fusion in his basement.
That was one of those sarcastic smilies at the end there.
Hell hath no fury like a wood burner scorned!
Keep after him.
All I can say is WOW........
Let me state the obvious here and suggest that anyone looking at OWB (outdoor wood boilers/furnaces) do a LOT of homework before buying. It's better to be safe than sorry and there are outfits (Central, etc.) who at least have been in biz for a decade or more.
FYI - for all concerned - there may be some funny business going on here as 4 of the complaints are coming from the same IP. I suspect that someone is posting for others (copying and pasting) or else trying for maximum effect.
I don't doubt the relevance of the public information given here and the history - nor of the seeming wrongs in using the Fisher name, but these forums are not to be used as purely a complaint department...against the rules by multiple registrations! One is enough!
