Like I said in my PM Jack, Reading Coal & Harman TLC2000's don't mix well! :lol:

I'm sure if you contact them they will find a place local to you that sells their coal. (I buy mine from a local hardware store,nicely bagged in manageable 40lb bags) With Blaschak you'll be a warm & happy man. With Reading Coal you'll want to make a floor lamp out of your stove!

Edit: Read this thread to see the horror show I went through trying to burn what turned out to be Reading Coal in my TLC......even when mixed in with Blaschak That's It- Stick With Blaschak!

Just a FYI to members looking to go to PA for bagged coal, call around and get prices. I called 20 dealers all over PA and their price was about the same as mine here in western NY, 200 miles away. The only way to save money is to drive to the breaker with a truck and trailer that can hold 3-5 tons of loose coal or have a 25 ton load delivered. To run a tri-axle dump costs ~$1 a mile just in fuel, so it costs the same for delivery if you get one ton or a full truckload. The real reason to get your own coal is to visit the breaker and get the kind of coal you desire.

I was thinking of renting a uhual it truck and picking up 6 tons but it all depends on the capacity of the truck. I'm still interested in a truck load if I can get a trucking company to unload it. I would have to rent a forklift and have it at my house when the truck arrives.

Follow e.alleg's advice, you won't save anything coming here and buying bagged coal. It's double the price locally

Hi

I am new here, but have been following this forum for months. Just purchased a AHS 130 coal boiler due for delivery this month.

I live in Middletown, NY which is 60 miles north west of NYC, close to PA border, near Milford.

Looking for coal suppliers, bagged coal.

thanks

Scott,
I could get access to a pickup. This will be my first year burning so I don't know what the TLC-2000 will like. Devil 5052 has really given me alot of info on that particular stove and ya can't beat experience. :D Some dealers around here are mixing reading and blaschak which I don't want.Let me know what dealers you have in the Malta area.
Jack
P.S. I really appreciate all the help you guys give me and thanks !

Thanks,

Jim, Lake Champlain Coal Co. in Whitehall NY sells bulk coal, and I believe Advanced Energy Systems in Warrensburgh sells bagged. I'm not aware of any dealers closer to you.

WOW !!!!! I read the thread and I definately don't need that problem. I am sure I 'll have some learning to do in my first year but thanks to you and your knowledge it will be less of a problem. I just ordered 3 tons of bagged blashak at 5.79 a bag. Me and my stove should be happy. My farmer friend jusy got a new vermont casting stove last Winter and had problems starting and keeping a burn. They blame the stove but maybe it's the reading that they burn. Anyway, Thanks for the help.

Good for you......& good price too!! :clap:

Edit: One more recommendation when you get your TLC....Add another layer of firebrick on top of the one's it comes with. Four bricks will do it & it makes loading easier (no coal chunks landing on top of the firebrick against the steel wall) & allows more coal to be loaded for longer burns. Best $12.00 you'll ever spend! :D

Here's a pic...Wedged them in with angle iron:
