Hello .. I have used the same coal supplier (Russell A Kresge & Sons) for the last 5 + seasons, in fact they have been the only suppler of coal I ever got.
Well this all changed this season, they were unable to get me 6 tons of coal when I called in September, they said it wouldn't be until late November and for me to look else where if possible.
OK I said ??? Then I looked at a supplier in Easton PA (Aerni & Hitzel Fuel Inc), they were able to get me coal within two weeks of calling, one of the problems is their truck only holds four tons. Oh, well I guess I will get some more delivered later in the year. They tell me it is from the Blaschak mine. Is that good?
I think I might have been getting shorted from the previous supplier because four tons looks just a little less then the six tons I got before. Another is ash..
I have used the same 38# Tidy Cat buckets to top of the hopper, the biggest change is the ash, less then half of what I took out perviously.
So is there that much of a difference ? Oh and to top that all off it is $30 cheeper ..
Great message board.
