If you hate to cut wood, then don't buy a boiler.
I have had a Central Boiler for 15 plus years. It is a 6048. I am very happy with it. My house (ranch) was built in 1978 and has decent insulation and newer windows, we keep the house between 72 and 74 degrees (no real hot or cold spots like with a wood stove in the house). I have a fuel oil furnace and do not use it. (It should probably be replaced.) I also heat my 20 x 40 x high ceiling (reasonably insulated) shop. I am not in there all of the time, but maintain it at 45-ish degrees, when I am not in there.
I don't honestly know how much wood I use, but I do burn a lot of wood. I live in SW MI and the temps vary, but it does get cold. I start the stove in Sep or Oct, when it starts to get cool at night. If the inside of the house gets to 65-F, I start a fire. In this kind of weather the furnace fan doesn't even run. The house is warmed just by the hot water in the pex tube that makes a loop through my basement. The basement is also warm, nice and warm. When it is bitter cold out, zero-ish, I need to fill the stove twice a day. it is a good idea to check it at least twice a day anyway. I usually quit burning in May (we sometime have to open the window on the warm sunny days, but don't have a cold house after the sun goes down).
I usually burn only down and dead stuff, out of the woods, I don't have to drop many trees, because of that. The stoves will pretty much burn anything. Green wood, seasoned wood, in between wood, half rotted wood, it ALL burns. I don't like to split wood and the 6048 has a big enough door, that if you can pick it up, it will fit through the door. I would strongly encourage you or anyone to get the 6048 size over the smaller stoves. My mom has the 5030 size and I spend more time cutting wood for her stove because I have to split it (I have to get it to old lady handling size anyway). That stove is still better than an indoor wood stove and will still take a good sized log, but I prefer not to split my wood.
There are lots of choices in stoves, many more now, than when I bought mine. I bought a Central Boiler, because that is what my dad had and several friends as well. My brother and I and several buddies all bought at the same time and we got a better deal. We had a decent dealer at the time (we have a better one now) and because we hall had the same brand of stove, we had commonality of parts. Circulation pumps rarely quit during the day, when the dealer is open. Obviously, you want to find a Good dealer and a Good, well built stove. It is going to be a sizable investment and quality is important and 15 years goes pretty fast. I have had good luck with CB, but others have not. My buddy bought a new one that leaked from the factory. It was covered under warranty, but he had to pay to have it shipped from MI to MN and back.
Would I buy another? ABSOLUTELY! Would it be a Central Boiler? Maybe, but I would certainly shop around!
If you hate to cut wood, then don't buy a boiler. If you don't have a good wood source, then you probably don't want a boiler. If you want to pack up and go to FL, for a month in the winter, then don't buy a boiler.
