I want to get some samples of the good stuff while I am down there...
200 to 400 lbs of each, any place besides the breakers that would have some?
Hate to be a PIA at the breakers for small quantities.
Do not waste your time or money going to LC&N Stick with UAE Harmony mine Superior coal Calvin V Lenig coal Summit Anthracite. Sherman coal co. Some of these breakers will be hard to load Just a few hundred lbs being they are using chute's and the scale is not right there where they are loading the coal at . The scale is either aross the street from the breaker or at the end of it. Alot of work and time going back and forth when you have other people in line getting coal . Superior Summit & Sherman would be the breakers set up like this if you goto these breakers I would ask for a 1/4 to a 1/2 ton load . UAE uses a bob cat frontend loader the buckets holds 500 lbs one scoop then you will have to drive onto
the scale. But the weight will be with in 40 to 80lbs of the 500lb bucket load . Calvin V. Lenig will use a hopper with a
scale right on it they use a big loader to fill the hopper very easy to get the weight you want . Remember not all of these breakers are open on a Saturday yet some will not open until after labor day . Calvin V. lenig is open until noon on Saturday 3 or 4 pm during the week . Summit is open until 2pm on a Saturday 4pm during the week . Superior is closed
on Saturdays until after labor day then open until 12 noon . 3pm during the week . Sherman until 3pm during the week
not sure on Saturdays yet was ntil 12 noon. I would call before you go to any of them to make sure .
If you do decide to goto LC&N the chutes at their breaker are real high off the ground made for loading big high trucks
the coal will be falling fast and hard about 25 to 30ft above you little truck bed hope you have good tires shocks & springs on it. It will squat & bounce the truck. Have fun & enjoy your the coal run .
