Burner opinion, Riello,Beckett, Carlin???

Hey guys I need some help.
I will be installing a Buderus 115ws with a gross input of 136K BTU and everybody says they have the best burner! Riello is supposed to be good, has the electric air shutter, etc, but I have heard parts have a lead time and they are sensitive to work on. Becket is popular, simple, and everyone has parts. Carlin has pros and cons too. What is your opinion? Also I have read that with a direct fresh air intake, for combustion, there have been problems with sucking air that is sub zero temp. I'll be doing the install and servicing. The Beckett I have now on a 25 year old Axeman Anderson boiler is getting about 84 3/4% with a trace of smoke on zero. Stick with Beckett, or go to a "desinger burner"? What do you think?????

It's the old Chocolate vs. Vanilla question again... and you will get answers all over the place...

If you intend to install and service the system, obviously, stick with what you know, unless you are willing to learn. There is nothing really wrong with any of the burners you mention.

If you are on LI, you can pretty much get whatever you need over in Plainview ... Patriot Supply... for any of the burners.

Thanks NJ, what have you heard about the sub zero air causing ignition problems?
