Overview of the Classic Edge
The Central Boiler Classic Edge is an outdoor wood gasification furnace available in three models with a water capacity ranging from 150 gallons to 330 gallons. The unit has a vertical heat exchanger, which provides optimal heat transfer and allows exhaust particles to drop to the bottom, reducing the need for maintenance. It also has an air charge tube, unique to Central Boiler, which improves efficiency and lowers emissions by controlling airflow while preventing coals from falling into the lower chamber. Air-tight, waterproof urethane spray foam insulation and an insulated chimney help lock in heat and reduce wood usage, and the FireStar II electronic controller automatically adjusts the primary and secondary air to optimize the gasification process.
The 2016 starting price of the Central Boiler Classic Edge is $6,490.

I previously burned an E-Classic 2300 since 2008 and thought it worked well. I loved that it burned less wood. Last fall, I learned that Central Boiler had something new available that would allow me to watch my boiler water on any internet device like my iPhone. However, although it's available for most of the E-Classics and Edges it was not available for mine since I had a very early model without the current digital controller. Last fall, I decided to sell my old E-Classic 2300 to a neighbor and bought the new Edge-750 model so I could put the FireStar XP on it and monitor my furnace while I'm at work. I love it! The Edge is a little less maintenance, burns less wood and I love being able to watch my boiler water temperature whenever I wish. Especially when I need peace of mind on those -20 f winter days in Minnesota. No more wondering when I need to go out and put more wood in on Sunday evening when I'm feeling lazy. A few of my buddies that burn Central Boiler Classics are jealous of me at work when they see me watching my furnace. They both are talking about upgrading this winter as well. They also would like to burn less wood so it makes sense. Now burning wood is not only saving me money but is kind of fun as well. I'm very pleased with my Edge-750.

"Classic Edge 750"
I operated an E-Classic 1400 for 3 years, an E-Classic 1450 for 3 years, and now I have been operating a Classic Edge 750 since October 2015. The 750 is much easier to operate and is more user friendly. The pump location and cleanout is much handier and easier to access, the solenoids and air box are much handier to service, the larger air tubes on the side of the furnace are also a big improvement from earlier E-Classic models. I am well satisfied with the Classic Edge 750.

"my wood fueled boiler"
I have owned this boiler for close to 2 years now. I absolutely love it , it accepts very large pieces of wood so that's less cutting for me. It also moved the smoke smell and mess of wood heat outside, so I pretty much have all the great benefits of wood heat with out the main hassles that are normally associated with it. This stove has saved me at least 300 dollars per month for every winter month over the last 2 winters. It also heats my water, and as an added bonus we ran water lines through our driveway; I turn this on when it ices or snows and my driveway never needs shoveling. I have only experienced one minor problem with my Central Boiler system: the area near the top of the stove where the pipes come out gets very very hot, and this causes the paint to come off of it at least one or two times per year. I service this myself, it is not a hard task but it does need to be done to insure the stove continues to perform at its best and lasts for many years to come. So to sum this little review up, this stove is a low-maintenance, affordable way to get more heat at a lower cost. The money it saves you will pay for it in three years at the most. I would gladly recommend this stove to any and all folks in the market for a wood-fueled boiler

"When Boilers Go Bad"
We've only had our boiler for a few months. The previous one that we owned went out and was no longer heating our home. After looking online at a few different websites and manufacturers, and determining which one would be best for the money, we opted to select the Classic Edge 550 model. I really enjoy the color options that were available, as opposed to having one that sticks out and is apparent for others to see, it was able to blend in with our home using the camouflage color. Our utility bill has gone up quite a bit since purchasing the 550, but it is also more efficiently heating our home and providing better control than our previous boiler did. We have not had to repair or replace it as of yet, and I would purchase the same brand again, and recommend it to a friend if they could afford the item.
Other Classic Edge Reviews
A post on hearth.com from a homeowner asking for opinions about the Classic Edge found many replies from people with complaints about the unit, including how to clean it. Most of these people, however, have only seen it and do not own one. On arboristsite.com, a member who saw a display of the Classic Edge said it looked like a good unit. Replies included another member who'd seen a display at a fair and agreed that the unit seemed good, but again there were no comments from anyone who actually owned one.
