Believe it or not, there is a guy a couple miles down the road with a 520 who went to Pa. to get a truck load of coal. When he got home he realized that it was pea coal
. To make the story short, he mixes it with rice and is working thru it. If I didn't talk to the guy myself I woudn't believe it. I asked him if he was shearing pins . He said that it just crushes it and pulls it up the auger. Must make a hell of a racket
I believe it Scott because depending where he got the coal from the Pea is really close to Buck in size anyway at some breaker you can't see the differents But some breaker's you can't The Pea is small size Nut and there Buck is small Pea
remember you do have a 1 1/2 " between the flights and 1 1/2 " from the center shaft to the top of the flights
but only a 1/2 " between the Auger tube and Auger flights Yea you will here a little crunching in the tube Look at like this what is Harder Anthracite coal or the S.S. Auger & S.S tube. Yea it is hard as far as coal goes but not that hard.
Not like shale slate or other type rocks
