HB Smith series 8 W-5

Sounds like "stolen market goods" to me. What are you looking for, steam or hot water? S/W means "S"team or "W"ater.

    HB Smith series 8 W-5

    I know questions about prices on installation quotes are not allowed and impossible to answer due to the many variables involved, but I was wondering if it would be ok to ask if a price in the range of $800 to $900 unit only for a HB smith Series 8 S/W-5 new in crate is reasonable. It sure seems so, but I can’t find any price list to compare. Thanks and please accept my apologies if this question is out of line
  • What a Baahgain!

    sure is! Be careful that's a five section boiler, which for most homes is over size

    Well, I “was” looking for a hot water boiler to replace my old one, which was a converted "United States Radiator Corporation" steam boiler that finally gave up the ghost. Not sure why, but I'm really gonna miss that old dinosaur. Anyway, I ended up buying a three year old Weil-McLain gold series 3 wgo-4 for $600 locally from a guy who recently converted over to gas. The Smith is still available online if anyone is interested, but I'm not sure if it's against forum rules to say where so I won't unless I’m told it’s ok.

    why not indeed!...

    Actually I'm new to this site and since I couldn't find any forum rules I figured, better safe than sorry. Anyway, the boiler is on ebay, not sure what the item # is but just search fo "Smith 8-W-5 Oil Burner" and it should pop up.
