Weil vs Buderus vs Utica

hello. curious if anyone had any info regarding which of the systems is better for a boiler? gas fired. 150 input. non-modulating (cost decision). current max of 4 zones (only one doing radiant for a bathroom floor - rest are for an air hanbler, superstor 60, and baseboards)

what would be the drawbacks of each? steel vs iron, gaskets, etc..

thoughts?
thank you.

I prefer low mass, cold start boilers. Neither of the ones you mentioned are low mass and you would have take your chances on whether what they call cold start would hold up with a blank coil plate on it. Burnham makes a cast iron model with no gasketed openings at all. The others might but I can't say for sure. Look at energykinetics.com for an idea what low mass can do. You don't need the tank if you already have an indirect so their boiler comes setup for 4 heat zones and a hot water zone. With the Carlin EZ-gas burner it is as trouble free as you will get.
