Review of Hunter Herald 80b boiler stove

Hunter 8

Margaret Rooke 6 years ago

New to fire stoves when I purchased this stove and purchased by appearance only. I’ve not been very impressed by the overall efficiency of the stove and expensive to feed, it heats the hot water by a back boiler and supplies 5 radiators. I’ve had to replace the majority of the parts twice which has been very costly. I wouldn’t recommend this stove and now looking to purchase a new heat source. If anyone could recommend a multi fuel fire stove it would be very appreciated.
