Not really far enough, but I guess I can understand the draw to all that flashy city stuff. :clap: toothy plus, no barn chores ;)

Matt, unless you like to leave the garage doors open...that S260 is going to be chomping at the bit for most of the winter!

My cousin runs a farm in Oneonta, nice area.

Saranac Lake here. I'll be starting my first coal fire soon. I'm still installing my stove. Everything is ready to go, just have all the red tape to get through. I'm hoping to have at least a wood fire going by the weekend. I'll be posting pictures soon enough. I went through exactly 1,500 gallons of fuel oil last winter so I'm hoping the TLC will drop that number down to 300, still need it for the hot water but if all goes well those days are numbered too.

Good evening, just found this forum, while researching coal info for a friend.
I'm in Saranac Lake; been burning coal since late 1970s, when fuel oil jumped up to $0.57 per gallon. I heat with a Keystoker boiler. Keeps my 100 year old 'cure cottage' cozy and warm all winter. I use about 6 ton of oiled buckwheat per year.
Where is Saranac Lake?????.....just look at your nightly local news weather map; we are always featured as the coldest place in NYS.

adk, welcome to the FORUM my friend--since the 70's?? wow, you must be old. toothy You'll find much info on coal burning plus just about anything else you can imagine here :) I think this winter may be a tad chilly for all of NYS. Hopefully we'll get enough snow to bank this old farm house. Again, welcome my friend.

I am a coal newbie living in Lafayette NY- 20 minutes south of Syracuse. We have been city dwellers for 21 years. In April 2011 we moved to our country home. A 2500 square foot ranch. As I type, our new Leisure Line/AA 110K-165K Coal/Oil combo boiler is being installed!!! I will post before & after pictures of the installation ASAP. I also have built an indoor coal bin big enough to store 8 ton of coal...
