I know Junior had some bulk stove delivered & talked about getting rice but I don`t think he would let you know who gets it for him for fear of competition.

Hey Folks,
I am new here - but do love this informative site!
I live in Chesterland with a son and family living in Auburn. We are looking for an alternative heat source for next winter. We have been looking for a couple of stoker units. Apparently for the price, the Alaska stoker looks hard to beat at around 2 grand with a thermostat. We know absolutely nothing about the different brands as to reliability/serviceability ect.
So this is a whole new adventure for us.
The price of local anthricite coal is a little pricey too as we are a litte ways from the nearest mine. Has anyone ordered any bagged anthracite from Keystone Coal? It is apparently from the Williamstown #1 mine.
I have asked for a quote on 24 ton delivered to Geauga County. We'll see how it compares with local prices.

Hey Ken, I have a brother in Thompson - he is one of your local farmers.

Would love to hear if anyone has any suggestions/recommendations on units and coal supplies.
Thanks
Ed

Simply type in a subject and it will bring up relavent posts on that topic that are from the Board.....Again,Welcome!.....Hambden Bob

Hello fellow Buckeyes.

Just finished moving from Huron County down to Washington County. (New Matamoras, OH)

Been heating with anthracite for the past five years. Now I need to find a new source down here in southern OH. I have an outside coal boiler that I use to heat a greenhouse and a small shack. I just finished plumbing all the lines and ready to fire it up once the cold air arrives...

Glad to see there is an Ohio board here...

Welcome,Dave !
Enjoy the Board. Sorry about you having to leave Huron County. Hope things work out better for you down South. Check with a gent on the Board named Coal Berner. He's an amazing source of just about everything Anthracite. Ask for a tri-axle quote. Take Care...Bob

Hi Folks,

I'm bigfoot2 up in Northeast Ohio just outside of Youngstown. I don't own a stove yet, but I sure am learning a lot about burning coal here on the forum. I've been leaning towards a Harman TLC 2000 or any of the Harman "Mark" series. Any advice from experienced coal burning people is always appreciated.

unclegreenthumbs, being so close to eastern KY try some eastern KY coal in your boiler, less ash, more heat, and less $$

I've got to go with Berlin on that one. BkSaun is another Kentucky Coal Brother that may have a wealth of info on his state's Kentucky Bit Products. When you don't have to haul it a million miles,or,better yet,when you can pick it up at the mine,I think you'll hit your true savings on using coal. Heck,Brckwlt built the Coalfire to haul the black gold from UAE Harmony,just think of what you could come up with. Do your homework,research the threads on this board. There is a treasure trove of info,experience and opinions on how to burn it safely and wisely. A stove or boiler is simply a tool...period. Learn how to use the right tool before you buy it,and your savings and security will rise. :D

Newbie here from Sunbury Oh outside of Columbus using a Hitzer 30-95.
Learning the ropes in my first burn season. Grew up burning wood so I need to learn patience!

I have a heat pump that is primary as I learn to use this thing. Trying to figure how much coal I would use if I burnt this more consistently . I just got 800 pounds to start out with to try burning this. I can see myself going through that without much difficulty!

I live in the Wadsworth area. Is there any good source for 'economically' delivered anthracite in my area? How about bituminous, does anyone deliver that around here?
