Review of Broseley Hercules 30b boiler stove

Cracked Cast Iron!

JANEY MITCHELL 6 years ago

We have had our Brosely for 4 years, and a foot long crack appeared on the top. I contacted Brosely through their agent and was advised that my fire only had 1 year guarantee. I emailed my brochure detailing 5 year guarantee and their claim "Cast Iron ensures our stoves will last the rigours of time allowing our company to guarantee your stove for five years". Does anyone know if Cast Iron can be welded. The fire has been ok, but would not recommend it due to the crack now rendering it unusable - thank you

Stove expert replied: Cast Iron stoves can't be welded I'm afraid.
