Keep in mind that not all coal is good quality stuff. Read a few threads here & don't buy allot of anything that you aren't sure of. (I bought a ton of mystery coal (clear bags) last winter & was sorry all winter long :( )

Hi I'm lookin for 4 - 6 tons of Rice in southern RI, prefer Blaschak. I also posted in co-op buys, because a full 23 ton truck split might work too if anyone is fairly close to me and can figure how to work it.

Separate question, how do the empty a 23 ton truck of bulk? Do I need a machine myself to unload it or what?

Hi Everybody!

I'm in the same boat as Hugg, wanting to buy probably 4 ton delivered in the Allentown area but also wanting the good stuff (superior, uae, etc...). The dealer I'm getting my Keystoker from only delivers Reading bulk and after all I've read here over a long period I'm trying to stay away from that. Yes, he also carries Blaschak which everyone here seems to agree is good quality but since my house has the coal room in the basement I can't see paying so much extra for bagged.

Any hints on where to start looking or calling?

Thanks, coal berner... even though I grew up in the Valley always knowing about coal, I've never KNOWN coal. It is still coming as a surprise as to just how close we really are to the mines, even with an ex-miner living right next door to me while I was growing up. Hell, I even remember climbing Mt. Pisgah with good friends from Jim Thorpe and coming home with a beach bucket of coal just lying by the side of the trails (around the trail and area leading up to Blue Heaven, they must have lost tons off the sides over the years...). Here I am at the top looking over the Blue Heaven mine...


But even with all that it still takes a second-take as to just how close we are to what I read is the heart of the whole industry. The breakers you kindly listed are actually a real short trip, time to think about getting some of the people I work with with CDL's (work at MACK) to go in with me for renting a small dump body and do a tiny coop thing with the few people I know burning coal. I'll start contacting the breakers to see what there low limit is, I know we can't handle a full trailer load and will have to settle for a small dump body.

The last time I helped burn coal.... I remember helping my grandfather in Easton when we visited to shovel coal from the coal room into the L&DBL...(The Lehigh & Delaware Basement Line he called it...) the absolute most amazing and coolest contraption ever for a 7 year old, a tiny rail car on teeny tracks right in the floor that moved coal from the coal room to dump into a small pit that the auger drew from..moved the coal a whole whopping 15 feet or so with a 90 curve. Actually carried about 60lbs a load and really dumped! (I have no clue what that old furnace was, but it was enormous, ominous black, and looked like something from "The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy"). Then, especially if it was really cold and snowy or sleety when we were out playing while visiting, my brothers and I would take off our wet coats and stand on the massive iron grate that filled the entire space between the "front parlor" and the dining room. Looking down into that scary black pit, with hot air blowing us dry in no time, made us both nervous and quickly dry. I remember playing with a Tonka Tow Truck in the dining room and somehow lost the whole Red rotating Light assembly from the roof into that black pit. The comment was dryly made by all concerned, barely looking up from their papers or coffee and shoofly "well, kiss that truck goodbye".

But I never really got over stepping over it rather quickly even later in life, even when they switched to gas in the 70's. So after those memories, I'm SO glad I'm going with the boiler so that I can just soak up the nice, even radiator heat!

Again, thanks for giving me an option to work on!

Brian, I was talking to a guy that had 23 ton brought up to Livonia two weeks ago. He is going to give me his phone number. When I get it, I will PM you. The driver brought up coal and took back grain from Avon.

26weeks, (Brian), Finally got the name and number of the coal hauler. His name is Frank, 717-453-7922. From Meadowbrook Coal Co. I do not know anything about the coal, maybe some one here can help.

Not sure if this is the right place but I've got a question about coal delivery in the Wilkes-Barre, PA area. My wife's cousin told me not to buy from a specific vendor because he delivers a lot of stone with his coal. Isn't all of the coal from this area coming from the same place, Hudson I believe or are there multiple breakers still working in this area? I'd love to get the deep mined stuff but I need it delivered with a high lift truck.

    Since I only use maybe 2 tons per year I guess I would be looking for a bunch of people in SE mass. who would like to split a large load. If anyone is interested let me know. (I'd probably take 6-8 tons)

    I'd be good for 6-8 tons here in Central MA.[/quote]

    I'm interested in these "Tri Axle" loads... How does it work and where is there a reputable place to get it. I'm in Southern Maine and have a few folks who would be interested in sharing a load.

    I don't know of anyone that has shared a load of bulk. The truck is not going to go town to town, house to house and try & guess how much he dumped here or there. Even bagged I don't think you'll get a trucker to drop some here, some there. That being said, if you get a full load delivered to one place and have others come & get it, no problem, other than if it's bulk, YOU trying to guess at how many ton is in a pile. Bulk gets dumped. Bags come on shrink wrapped pallets, 1 1/4 ton per pallet. You must provide a forklift or 72 teenagers.

    Double Run trucking: They will deliver full loads of bulk. Ask for Ray, Tue, Wed, Thur 717-721-3996
