    Nope... not for me.... not yet anyway

    A co-worker of mine is looking for some information on possibly purchasing a 2 or 3 year old OWB. It is a Mahoning model 100, wood or coal, supposed to be rated at 150,000 btu.

    The house is currently heated by (mostly) a wood stove, but they have a oil burning furnace with 2 heating zones and a 3rd for DHW.

    Any thoughts on this manufacturer or model? I believe the asking price is $3,500

    The house is approx 2,000sf, 2 story - I'd assume well insulated, as the 2nd story was recently added. The house is located in Western MA hilltowns.

    I know the guy who owns Mahoning because he exhibits his boilers at our show, but I have no idea if it's a good unit or if that's a fair price for a used one.

    For that money, I'd want to be pretty confident that it's in good shape. That's hard even with a boiler that looks to be sound--things are not always what they seem.
