I called and they have a dealer about 50 miles away, but no bulk hauling. I didn't know you had to be a Blaschak dealer to pick up coal at Blaschak. The delivery costs add about $1100 to a 21 ton load, but I'm not sure if that is a bulk load or bagged load.

There is not ant tracks bulk coal in Wisconsin -- unless you haul it in at great cost

There is a dealer in Ripon and two near Chilton -- all 3 hours away from EC

You can get bulk Bit coal out of Milwaukee, Green Bay or the Twin cities -- again 3 hours away

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

There is a large farmer just outside of town that makes wood pellets to sell in bulk and sells corn to burn -- He even has a self serve vending machine that you pull your trailer under and feed ($20's)

-- YES -yes I know its not coal and it never will be --- but the cost of the production of every BTU produced with bio mass will be less than with any black rock that we can get in your area of Cheese Head Land.

Apparently where he lives, natural gas and propane rule. He wants to get away from the smell and odor of bit coal.

When he talks to people up there about anthracite, they associate it with smell and smoke or don't know what he's talking about.

Wood boilers and pellet boilers are popping up all over up there, but they aren't competitive with coal here, and maybe not there either.

Exactly! and when bio mass was 70 bucks a ton - it was a wonderful alternative to the "Rule" Greg is about as far east as I imagine it is sensible to haul Anthracite East - and that's what-- the east side of Michigan???

Certainly not there - I marvel at folks that are paying far too much for pellet fuel there - Well "MARVEL" might not be quite a strong enough word. ;) And unless the chunk wood is free and with in 5 miles that too is jut too costly vs the "rule" about these parts. yet folks do it - and a lot

If I didn't already have a biomass fuel infrastructure installed and paid off in cost of heat savings -- I would be burning bit coal - the "smell and smoke" associated can be controlled. Far easier than controlling the same draw backs of the out house chunk wood smoke dragons. But at the time I could convert for less the way I did, and at the time the fuel was plentiful and really cheep.

Here is hopping you guys don't witness the same changes with sources of Anthracite.

Sorry if I hijacked the thread with my summation of several years of researching burning coal in Wisconsin - but I post this hoping it might help. A bit coal stoker is the only way to go this side of the Great Lakes. My big Iron Fireman is still in the shed If anyone is interested.

I'm in north central Illinois and I'm trying to figure out how to get about 5 tons of bagged anthricite here as well. I'm rural and propance costs are out of sight these days. I see someone mentioned Milwaukee for bulk which is an hour and a half away for me, no big deal, but I would prefer bagged. This will cut my heating bill in half so if I have to go to Pa to get it I will. I love how propane is a waste gas but they charge you a fortune for it.

Hi there! Depending on exactly where you are, bagged Blaschak is available at http://advancedchimney.net/ in Rockford (south side of town just off Hwy. 20 and Alpine Rd.) Call them and ask for Brad, the owner - absolutely a first class guy. I've been buying rice from them for two seasons now. Prices are quite good considering how far away we are from NEPA.
