Hi there! You don't state exactly why you are interested in these pellet boilers, possible purchase? A quick trawl of the internet shows that the company that I think was the manufacturer of the Woodpecker apparently ceased trading last year and its assets taken over by another company, whereas Windhager will be at ecobuild next month: http://www.ecobuild.co.uk/exhibitor-list/profile/3326/windhager-uk.htmln. Hope this is helpful. PS - opinions on the quality of their range of oil boilers posted on the internet were not very positive, hence their demise?

I think you will find that Woodpecker will be at Eco build, they are also MCS registered for the RHI, they are both very good boilers, but don't just restrict your choice to those two, there are other good boilers available, some are better value than others, but obviously make sure that they are MCS approved, and also your installer, to qualify for the RHI.
