    Had a half days training on the new Logic boiler from Ideal. Actually looks quite nice, well set out, easy to work on and apparently has a very low breakdown rate. Will make a change for Ideal!

    A very low breakdown rate might mean less work for aspiring gas technicians. Nowhere to put their u guage anymore.

    their bound to say low braekdown rate, too new for them to say !!

    You should of asked them if this is in comparison to the isar!

    Was in comparison to a good boiler make but can't bloody remember what it was, good though. Said that compared to the 'good make' boilers 5% breakdown/reliabilty rate this has a 1.5% rate, based on the 50,000 they have outed already. Bit early to say though i know.
    Did make a joke about too reliable for engineers and not producing enough work as it happens.Time will tell I suppose

    was the course free.

    Yes, there we have it. The judgment of a Milkman.

    Elvis son, Ideal is English & you Engerlish are * at any kind of engineering.

    Now, remember my yogharts in the morning & two pints of semi-skimmed.

    after the "icos" and "isar" boilers fiasco I would not touch an ideal boiler with "yours" LMAO

    As one of our Engineers once said, as he battled with recurring problems on an isar;
    'How the hell can they make so many appliances - so badly'!!

    Over Xmas & New Year we replaced 20+ fans on a Housing Estate near our office. 4+ year old Ideal Classic boilers, which to be fair looks a well constructed boiler with a CI heat exchanger, but clearly the fans were too small or had major faults in windings or something??!!!

    So, as for the Logic, thanks but no thanks!!

    bit of advice- our company deal with ideal so course was free for us but i presume compnay paid for it?

    you Engerlish are * at any kind of engineering.

    And I suppose you've never heard of Isambard Kingdom Brunel?
    Do you have ANY formal education son??!!!

    For your education Puller
    Isambard Kingdom Brunel, FRS (9 April 1806 – 15 September 1859), was a leading British civil engineer, famed for his bridges and dockyards, and especially for the construction of the first major British railway, the Great Western Railway, a series of famous steamships, including the first propeller-driven transatlantic steamship, and numerous important bridges and tunnels. His designs revolutionised public transport and modern engineering.

    Though Brunel's projects were not always successful, they often contained innovative solutions to long-standing engineering problems. During his short career, Brunel achieved many engineering "firsts", including assisting in the building of the first tunnel under a navigable river and development of SS Great Britain, the first propeller-driven ocean-going iron ship, which was at the time (1843) also the largest ship ever built.[1][2]

    Brunel set the standard for a very well-built railway, using careful surveys to minimize grades and curves. That necessitated expensive construction techniques and new bridges and viaducts, and the famous two-mile-long Box Tunnel. One controversial feature was the wide gauge (7 feet ¼", instead of the normal 4'8½"), which added to passenger comfort but made construction much more expensive and caused difficulties when eventually it had to interconnect with other railways using standard gauge; after his death the gauge was changed to 4'8½".

    Brunel astonished Britain by proposing to extend the GWR westward to North America by building steam-powered iron-hulled ships. He designed and built three ships that revolutionized naval engineering.

    In 2002, Brunel was placed second in a BBC public poll to determine the "100 Greatest Britons". In 2006, the bicentenary of his birth, a major programme of events celebrated his life and work under the name Brunel 200.[

    2nd in the 100 greatest britons, not bad for an 'english' engineer!

    Yes Graceland, Brunel's achievements are legendary but let's not forget Scotland's contribution to modern science. The deep fried pizza.

    Brunel was Welsh & RR are owned by the Hun...........................:^O :^O :^O

    Welsh? Welsh!!?? Have you had no formal education son!!
    I paste EVEN MORE info below to get it into your thick sweaty brain!

    Isambard Kingdom Brunel was the son of Marc Isambard Brunel, a French engineer who escaped the revolutionary turmoil of France in 1793 by immigrating to the United States, where he became an American citizen and engineered severalprojects, including the Hudson-Champlain Canal. In 1799 Marc Brunel moved toEngland and married Sophia Kingdom, an Englishwoman who had begun corresponding with Brunel while she was imprisoned during the French Revolution.

    Isambard Brunel was born in 1806 in Portsmouth, England. Demonstrating an early aptitude for mathematics, he was sent as a 14-year-old to college in France, where he studied and apprenticed in the design of mechanical instruments.At the age of 20 Brunel was appointed resident engineer of his father's Thames River Tunnel project, and it was during this early experience that Brunel'slegendary resilience and flamboyance were first publicly realized. Brunel tenaciously overcame many obstacles, but the project, overwhelmed with mishaps,was aborted when an undetected low section in the river bed caused a collapse and flooded part of the tunnel in 1828, nearly drowning Brunel. The tunnelwas not completed until nearly fifteen years later.
