Monitor FCX vs.Peerless Pinnacle oil fired

J.C.A._3 Member Posts: 2,981
Friend Ken has been running a Monitor in his Vermont home for almost 2 years now..He may be able to give some input.

The only thing I recall him having a problem with was a burner part that was a while getting to him....

He'll tell the story on Sunday.

I know he's on the road tonight and joining John Hall for dinner, to be followed by Ruthies' cookout tomorrow.

As far as the Pinnacle goes, I haven't heard of any installs...so I guess I wouldn't have heard of any problems.

I saw one at a show earlier this summer..and all I could think of was the Burnham Opus....( sorries to both **** and Glenn) Chris

    One of the smartest

    old timers around here put a pair in last year. He said they purred thru about 1500 gals without a hitch. Saved owner 40%.

    He was checking them pretty regular thru the winter.

    I was to go with him and check em out but he got t boned on his bike ,lost a leg and is in and out of a coma.

    Not sure I agree with the Opus analogy fully Chris. You can move this boiler into an existing structure!!!

    ER Stephens has always been a great rep here in Maine. I have put the Pinnacle on the table but have yet to sell one.

    I wonder what kind of shape the will be in after 10-15 years or does it matter?

    All the best
