Obadiah's is not and never has been a Greenwood dealer as the Seton Boiler is made here locally and Fred Seton lives in our valley during the summer months.
We have been Pro Fab dealers since 2001. We have been asked to help liquidate these boilers as Pro Fab would like to see them sold properly by someone who can support them in the future.
Pro Fab has lowered the price and these boilers are being sold as brand new without a warranty for below what they cost to build.
When they are gone they are gone and will never again be available at this price.
If you are looking for a high efficiency boiler that is designed to burn full rounds and operate without blowers to create clean combustion, this is your stove.
These boilers are based on the Seton Boiler which is still being manufactured in our hometown of Troy Montana, by Fred Seton.
We also offer the "original" Seton Boiler with a full 10 warranty from Fred Seton.
Parts and service advice are available through us to support most Seton Copy Boilers.
We also offer a "Fred Seton Upgrade System" which will restore the Greenwood back to Fred's original design.
We will even provide the original Seton Boiler manual with each Greenwood Boiler so you can install the unit as Fred intended.

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT...
All shipping is not created equally some dealers want you to pay an additional $100 to insure the shipment and leave you to file your own claims if you have any damage.
The Greenwoods they sell are on a pallet and are not crated. The risk of shipping damage is high as plumbing is exposed. Greenwoods they sell are on a pallet and are not crated.

Greenwoods they sell are on a pallet and not crated. The risk of shipping damage is high as the plumbing is exposed.
As the unit is improperly packaged the freight company will not pay the claim which is why they want you to purchase insurance.
We at Obadiah's do not operate that way we regularly ship stoves furnaces and boilers all over North America..
We will not ship anything which is not properly crated therefore we charge a $225 crating fee to ship a Greenwood to assure it arrives free of damage.
Our huge shipping volume allows us to deliver the boiler curbside to your home for about the same price as the competition charges to deliver to a shipping terminal which may be hours from your home.
You can skip the crating fees if you want to pick it up in TN.
With Obadiah's we handle everything for you, no need to insure anything. In most areas we use Fed EX Freight, or UPS Freight.
Our volume allows us to request smaller trucks with liftgates for residential delivery.
Your boiler will arrive in front of your home curbside delivery
Load your boiler on a trailer or the back of your pick up as the driver lowers the boiler off the truck with a liftgate.
Move it from there where it needs to go.
Be aware..... Boilers can weigh as much as a ton. They also should be professionally installed by a licensed plumber to meet your local codes.
Most installers are familiar with moving large boilers.
If you are installing in a basement and do not have a walk out, make sure your steps can support the weight of the boiler!
As long as you inspect your shipment before you sign and note any damage on the Bill of Landing Obadiah's will take care of everything if there is damage.
We'll ship you replacement if a fork truck put a hole in the side, no additional charge, simply take a picture of the hole and write refused.
The boiler will be returned to the terminal for further inspection, if deemed irreparable, a replace we be sent and we will take care of the damage claim for you.
(If that happens with other Greenwood sellers, you will have to file your own claim with the Freight Company and battle the insurance company to see how will pay. Meanwhile, you will have to pay for your replacement boiler and pray you get reimbursed)
Lastly ask yourself a few more questions before you spend your hard earned money anywhere else.
If you have problems with your Greenwood will the dealer troubleshoot your problems or provide you with replacement parts.

How the Greenwood 300 is Different
Most wood burning furnaces and wood boilers on the market today are unable to sustain a temperature of 1100º F or higher. They are built with a firebox made of steel which is surrounded by a jacket of water. This water jacket serves two purposes: it transfers heat from the firebox to the home heating system, and it cools the steel firebox and keeps it from melting. The problem is, by keeping the firebox cool, the water jacket also cools the fire and prevents it from burning at temperatures needed for complete combustion. That's why these units produce irritating smoke and potentially dangerous creosote.
This innovative design enables the Greenwood wood boiler to burn cleanly and operate at a very high level of efficiency. By the time the escaping gases leave the furnace, they have cooled to around 300º F. The 1700º F difference in temperature between firebox and the vent represents the amount of energy captured to heat your home. The Greenwood hydronic furnace burns clean and delivers up to 85% of the wood's thermal energy to your home heating system.
