    They have a manual top loader version as well.

    It's kind of a cross between a jetstream (top loader) and a woodgun (heavy, industrial looking construction) along with lambda controls. Even has optional extra thick steel construction for those that want it to last long enough for their grandchildren to enjoy.

    (did you see that, I said something nice about the woodgun)

    It is a little pricey.From what i have been told auto load is not in the USA yet.Also they have not gone through UL certification testing.But plan to in the near future.

    Yeah but it is the most advanced lambda boiler on the planet. And the price per pound is competitive!


    \edit
    Can always count on henfruit to chime in with what is wrong with any boiler he doesnt sell. Suprised it took so long.

    Design looks very familiar and robust to say the least.

    Saw a couple very similar to that a couple weeks ago at a conference in Wels Austria. Top loading, side instead of bottom gasification.......yep pretty much the same design.

    Of course you did. Because as hard has you may try to resist, eventually you will obey the laws of the WOOD GUN
    even if you don't understand why.

    The design is very similar, if not the same as a Kob residential boiler which is pretty much the cream of the crop over in Euroland. They are pricy over there too which is presumably why Viessmann (owns Kob) has not made them available here. It is a very good and robust design to say the least.

    140KW is up in industrial sized applications and while $42K is a lot of dough it's not much more than you would pay for something of similar output. A pair of Garn 2000's for example will run about $32,000.

    I'll say it appears to be a very solid unit. Not a low quality pressure vessel with pretty sheet metal and some lambda stuff hanging off the side.

    Yes your right heaterman. I got the units mixed up. Although I typed in 140kw I was thinking 40kw. :)

    Link to first KOB dealer in North America, mostly commercial installs.

    He has a district heating system in his hometown and sells "heat" to whoever wants to connect.
