I have an EBW 150, and wish I'd gotten it for this sort of price-- though at the time I ordered it (mid-summer 2008) boilers were flying out of vendors stock (Tarm was backordered 5 months out into the future), so it wasn't exactly a buyer's market at that point.Singed Eyebrows said:
They must be a distributer, I don't think a dealer could sell for that price. There are also multiple quantities available & they say that they will sell other Econoburns for similar discounted prices. The people that need an ASME boiler might be able to get quite a deal on one. My Atmos is a great boiler, it is lacking a firetube design though & it won't last as long as the much heavier EB, Randypybyr said:I have an EBW 150, and wish I'd gotten it for this sort of price-- though at the time I ordered it (mid-summer 2008) boilers were flying out of vendors stock (Tarm was backordered 5 months out into the future), so it wasn't exactly a buyer's market at that point.Singed Eyebrows said:
Every part I've examined of my EBW 150 emanates robust design and construction- and it works really well, especially this second season when I have a better knack with it and also have better wood.
They said the shipping prices were low. That's a heavy boiler to ship from MN to WA for $400.00. There sure does seem to be some kind of shakeup, Randygorbull said:That Auction is being put on by Aqua-Therm in MN. they seem to have entered into an agreement to distribute Econoburn products. I contacted them about an EB200 and it was $6300 plus shipping $400 to Sumas Wash.
I noticed a similar price drop for the New Horizon product lines as well. Maybe something is going on? Perhaps a price war brought on by the 2 major Orlan Eko distributors? Hopefully it's a price correction. You have to kind of wonder when the price from Kotly.com last fall was half what they were charging over here.
What drove up the cost of your install so much. It appears this was almost $5,000 past the cost of the boiler. Did you pay to have this put in? I always thought WG & the rest of them(USA boilers) were gouging. One thing is for sure, when you can buy a quality USA made boiler for $4495 the rest are going to need to rethink their pricing structure, Randyihookem said:It's about time Woodgun and Econoburn lower their prices. I got an Eko 25 for 4700 plus 279 for shipping through Ahona. Just before I bought it I called one last time to Econoburn and they told me 7k plus 500 shipping plus 400 state tax so @ 7900 and 7k for the woodgun I said no way, I will buy a foreign boiler. There is no reason Eko can ship it all the way from Poland for 2400 less than Woodgun and 3400 less than Econoburn even after import duties and the way steel went down the last year. I was pissed. They just take advantage of guys like us because they know we are fanatics about guying American. Also, Eko dropped the price in the fall a bit and then I sent the check to AHONA. They were real good to deal with, Thanks Mark! P.S. and like my signature says, still too much when it was all said and done.
Earl; I haven't had any dealings with them. What I do know is that you can pay with Paypal & if you are not shipped a brand new boiler they will refund your money. For a seller like myself on Ebay Paypal can be a little risky at times. For a buyer it is good insurance. I've shipped a bunch of heavy machines to California & the $700 seems cheap, RandyE.W. said:Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the company in MN? I E-mailed them about the shipping costs to my location on the East Coast of Canada and they quoted me $700 US which considering the distance seems reasonable.
Greg; The only thing that is puzzling is that they will quote big discounts on any EB boiler & I'm assuming they don't stock all the boilers. Maybe I'm wrong though. For the time being though it's a hellofa deal, Randygreg in MN said:I bought my Econoburn 150 from the near by Aquatherm dealer. During my install I talked to the Econoburn Factory and he mentioned that when Aquatherm was sold out of stock they would no longer handle them. Looks like they lowered price to clear them out.
My 150 works great.
Yes, I think the China cast iron sectional is $4000.00. Not saying this is a bad boiler, to compare this to an EB gasser though? The EB's just seem to be sitting there on Ebay, RandyNNYorker said:At these prices, if someone is looking for an Econoburn, NOW is the time to buy.....
