Retiring an ML30
« on: March 21, 2020, 06:15:57 AM »

Hello everyone, it has been a while since I have logged in here and I hope you all are well.

Well, I have enjoyed my wood boiler for a long time but I am no longer able to cut the wood with my back in its current state. I have held onto it for a year and it is clear that it needs to be sold as I will not be using it anymore. It has been so long since I have been in the market or in touch for one I do not know what they are worth new or used. Since this one is used I don't know if it is worth anything or not. I know the EPA made this type of unit obsolete but I know people still use them as I see them around.

If this should be put in the For Sale section please do so and I apologize, just getting a feel for its worth.

I would like to offer it to this community first but I need an honest opinion of what it is worth. I would sell everything as a whole.
I have:
3 water to air heat exchangers (2 16x18's and a 18x19)
1 Water to water plate exchanger  (hex bl14-20d)
2 TaCo pumps
I have all the sharkbite fittings but they are used and I don't think I would reuse them but I kept them all the same.
over 150' of the 4" plastic spray foam insulated black pipe
Portage and Main ML30. The good: Unit has been covered entire life of service. Bad: Unit did overheat the second year of use ( I left the ash door open a crack  :bash:) but did not suffer any cracks or other structural damage as I used it for many years after without any issues.
I believe this stove has plenty of life left in it and would be good for someone.
Thanks

If it's not leaking it should be worth several thousand. But putting it on FB marketplace or Craigslist would move it much quicker I'd guess. Spring is pretty slow time for selling a furnace.
