Some of us like to do it more than others. From his pics, it looks like nofossil put some additional switches on his control panel and modified the loading door handle. I've made a couple of minor changes to accommodate my space and style of operating the boiler. One is a handle for the heat exchanger cleaner. A stock EKO Super has a lever on the left side towards the back that moves the heat exchanger cleaning rods up and down when you yank on it. The dealer I bought the boiler from suggested cranking that lever "vigorously" every time I load the boiler. And while that's not a big problem for most people, in my case I have about an inch of clearance on both sides of the boiler and I have to go outside to get around to the back. So even if I remembered to yank the lever once or twice a day, I probably wouldn't always get around to it. The simple solution was to drill a couple of holes and attach an old snow shovel handle to the hx cleaner lever. That involved taking the lever off the boiler, drilling a hole at the tip, and then mounting it so that it points up, rather than down. Now I just pull the handle back and forth (from the front) 3 or 4 times every time I'm tending the stove, and that seems to keep everything clean and clear. Pics of that, attached. The other modification I made was to turn the main loading door handle around so that you can now open the loading door while the bypass damper is shut. The EKO is designed so that you can't do that, presumably as a safety precaution. But since my bypass damper tends to stick from time to time, making impossible to open the damper and thus open the door, I've thrown caution to the wind and engineered a workaround. As a practical matter, the only time the damper sticks is at the end of the cycle when it gets a little creosote stuck to it, usually first thing in the morning when I'm trying to get the fire going again and get to work. So the only time I open the main door with the damper closed is when there's little or nothing burning in the boiler. To turn the handle all you have to do is drive the setpin out with a thin nailset, turn the handle around 180 degrees and reset the pin.
