Review of Broseley Hercules 30b boiler stove

Great Stove

William Tatters 6 years ago

In my experience the 30b is a great stove. I can burn virtually anything and can easily keep going for 8 hours on wood. If you load with coal up to 36 hours burn time can be achieved. This stove has helped us survive -20c in the cumbrian winter!

Stove expert replied: Sounds an amazing stove if you only have to re-fuel every 36hrs on coal / smokeless fuel. Amazing but do make sure that you give the stove short periods of fast burn to maintain a goods clear flue.
