HeatMaster / 2015 HeatMaster 10,000
« on: February 17, 2018, 08:47:12 AM »
I bought this boiler just before the law chained and was not impressed. Ash door not insulated, clean out door not insulated and main loading door had  so much  silicone around the gasket it made the gasket hard as a stone. After first year of burning, I insulated the ash door and added some foil insulation between the clean out door and the inside plate. Having removed the loading door, I had to remove the handle to get the gasket out. The bolts that hold the door on were not stainless steel. They were so rusty, I had a hard time removing then. Even had to re tap the threads. Found the same thing on the ash door, and the top clean out door. Replaced all bolts with stainless steel bolts. Sticker says it was made in Apr. 2015. Boy is that a load of crap. The threads on the bolts were solid rust, this don't happen in a year. I think this boiler was standing around outside for years, even the bottom insulation was so wet, I had to replace it. I did get a deal on the boiler, $9,500. What I got was a boiler that was standing around for years and then someone changed the sticker to say it was made in 2015. Wish I had waited until my CB died and bought a Heatmaster C series.   

HeatMaster / Chimney Caps
« on: March 10, 2017, 09:39:34 AM »
Has anyone used a chimney cap on their OWB? I tried one that was meant for the HM chimney and it made a mess of creosote run down the pipe. I had to remove it. I just wanted to keep the rain out, seems like every winter we get a couple of inches of rain. Had 2 weeks of rain this winter. Anyone tried one of the cloverleaf caps? 

HeatMaster / HeatMaster MF10000e

Maybe Slim can help with this. Dealer in my area told me he can't sell a conventional unit if it is not in stock. If he has to order it, it can only be for a business. Got a price on the MF10000e and for $9,300 he can order me one and say it is for a business. He is out of stock, he got 4 units in a couple of weeks ago and a guy came in and bought up all 4. Still thinking of replacing my old CB, going on 17 years now. I don't like the gassers, don't have a building to store the wood to keep it dry.

General Discussion / Earth OWB
« on: August 10, 2014, 10:34:36 AM »
Has anyone had any experience or know of someone who has an Earth OWB. I know they are made in Mo. Don't get that cold there but my state seem to have a lot of dealers, and with a 1/2" inside boiler plate the Mountain Man 500 Series seems to be the model I'm looking for. Just need some more info. on the boiler. 

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / How long will a Gasser's last?
« on: August 05, 2014, 09:23:53 AM »
I have seen a lot about the new gasser and the cost is going up all the time. Since the law is going into effect on the first or 15 of Jan. the price's of the regular OWB has gone up too. My boiler is now 15 years and still going but could go at any time. I was wondering if any knows how long the gasser will last. At a burn rate of around 2000 degrees it seems to me that these units will burn out in a couple of years. Should I buy a regular model before the law goes into effect or wait until the boiler burns out and get a gasser. I burn all types of wood and don't have a building to store the wood.
