What should I choose: TRIO PROP 3 or McLain WGO-3 - both oil burners

Hello, I am hoping I can get some expert advice. Our oil burning furnace that supplies our heat and hot water is about to go. We need to purchase a TRIO PROP 3 with a Carlin EZ Burner for $ or McLain WGO-3 for $. We have roughly 1600sq ft to heat.

Is someone able to tell me whats a better product? Is it worth the extra cost to get the WGO-3?

Thank you!

    First of all, we do NOT discuss pricing on this forum. You need to edit your post and remove the pricing. See

    Now, of those two, I'd get the Trio since it is a 3-pass unit and therefore easier to maintain. If I were proposing a Weil-McLain, I'd use the Ultra Oil which is also 3-pass.

    Does your present boiler also heat your hot faucet water? If so, how do these proposals address this?
