Review of Broseley Hercules 30b boiler stove

Terrible stove

Nick Deackes 2 years ago

Doors don''t close correctly gaps on both doors leading to poor control of rate of burn, no adjustment has improved this.

Glass appears too small to fit doors correctly. Baffle plate poor quality, air tube at rear of fire box has disintegrated.

Seems a very poor quality build. Looking to replace soon.
