"Woodmaster 434 (4400)"
Woodmaster 434, which is the predecessor of the 4400 (same design) Have had since 2001, burning constantly (Domestic hot water and radiant heat). Replace door gasket about every 3 years. Dealer network is shaky. Dealer promptly went out of business after I bought mine, and there isn't another within 100 miles. He did a poor job on the tubing going to the house (underinsulated). Had to replace every 1" compression fitting in the system (all leaked in first year) Use Shark Bite fittings. 10 years, no leaks. Woodmaster's dhw heat exchanger arrangement is substandard, but works. Replaced the Taco 0011 circulator pump at year #8. Exterior steel is rusting through now. Parts are fairly easy to get from woodmaster website. Unit burns okay, but is not very efficient. I've gotten a lot of use out of it, and don't regret my purchase; but with technology improvements of late, am upgrading to a gasifier unit - non- Woodmaster.
