I don't mean to offend anyone, or say anything other that what I have seen myself. Yes, I have gotten black water baths every time I handle a bag of coal. Do I get upset? You damned right I do. I also will be the first to admit if I erred making a comment or post, but guys, I have been there and seen it myself. As recently as last weekend. The blowers are so powerful that they will blow you off balance.....even though many of you are already off-balance (cheap shot, I know).
I do hear you about the issue....however I did pick up 3 tons of Blashak Rice from a guys baseent who sold the home and the next owner "Mr Greenie " went to corn pellets. He and his wife did NOT want to increase the carbon footprint
they already have. I bought the coal for 150/ton...50 lb bags...in a basement. Lots of bags to handle throwing them UP the stairs. Not a GD drop of water from 136 bags. None broke.....a successful trip. 203 miles round trip, so 88 dollars in fuel, tolls.....I'm in it for...no labor for 4 bucks a DRY bag. That Santa on the bags even made me smile!
Now last year I 'rescued 7 tons of rice from another company that had been stored outside for 8 years. Bags were rotting away, under plywood and a tarp. Dryer than a popcorn f**t!!!! However, between the time I rescued it and burned it it picked up some moisture because I did not cover it well enough and my tarps blew off twice in huge rain storms. I got the black spew for 350 bags ( thawed out frozen bags in heated garage and shared the wonderful black shower for too long.)
So Paulie, it is dry when it is packaged, dry when it leaves and I have no answers for where it picks up moisture.
I've not been able to go to a meet and greet, but would look forward to seeing faces to associate with screen names, and go to whatever bagging operation will have us to show you I am not deaf, dumb, or blind!
I buy in bulk primarily and will tell you that there have been many frozen coal piles before I smartened up and heated the storage area. I remember wet coal and fines issues with AA's, none with AHS's(different auger approach) EFM's(technically EBM, they really have one hot air unit..and it's a good one, too.) The AA ones drove me freaking nuts....water and coal fines make a sticky paste that plugs every damned auger I've ever seen. Murphy's Law says that a malfunction will not occur in daylight hours on a weekday, only after midnight of a holiday weekend when nothing is open, not even a 24/7 Dunkin-Donuts.
Enough people pi**ed of on this topic......better get to the Meds....quickly. Wonder if the baro's at .02 or .09?
Perhaps my shorts are too tight Tiger...... I heard Elin has sent Lorraina Bobbett a round trip 'Vacation Trip Ticket'.......Try a Tesla tiger, that Escalade isn't fast enough...or safe enough. Damned airbags must have been defective....or they switched to 'fools gold' sensor tips. Did anyone see the NHRA Sponsored Castrol Top Fuel Golf Cart?
0 to infuriated in 1.3 seconds......Stoker Scott has been furiously working on an A-dust model.....but his bagged coal was too wet to get it to fire up. He calls it the '0 to 2500 PSI A-Dust Stealth Greens Monster'. It can be driven only by a woman, no man can handle that much rage and not explode. I know...back to the 'home', I saw the Suburbans drive by slowly...
