I wish I knew as much as the people at harmony know about coal. no disrespect was ment in any way

There was 3.5 tons left up and the top pile they bought it down and put it into the bin don't doubt them or me ;)

If I could figure out a way to put some 5 gal buckets on the roof of my car I would :D


:gee:
No need to put buckets on the roof. Remove the front passenger seat, rear seat and add a couple of custom cut sheets to the floor and right door panel on the inside to protect it.

USE YOUR SUNROOF TO LOAD IT bop2

In fact you could use some plywood to make a chute big enough for the loader to load it !!!!

Why do I have to think of solutions all the time. Geez !!!! :rofl: :funny:

I forgot about the sunroof.....A Masterpiece,Rick! Shield off the drivers seat and floor area and load......Now,to unload it as easy??...Trapdoors or slider plates unloading on the move onto a runner tarp? Use the railcar unloader and do a clamp and roll upside down?.....Gotta give his back a break...

Either a trap door or open the passenger side door and tip it over. After all it's only a sunfire......can't weigh too much. :funny:

If it is, hook up a come-a-long to the side of the house to help.

Of course, Brock would have to shovel a bit more snow from the side yard. But it would be well worth it. Think of the time savings. Besides it wouldn't be any tougher on his back or shoulders.

C'mon Brock, give it a shot and take some pics for us !!!!!!!!!!!

Hell, I'm starting to sound like whistlenut............ :bag: :crazy: :whistle:

I made another trip out to harmony today for some more pea coal. Picked up another 720 lbs in the Pontiac "coalfire"

just a couple pics, and when I was there I asked the nice ladies at the window if they had a list of coal delivery guys and they gave me a paper with some names on it. Thought id share it with everyone.

because I bet they want at least 180 a ton delivered, or more. I could be wrong, ill have to call and find out.

I only pay about 163 a ton when I factor in gas money. So if any of the delivery guys can do it for under 170 a ton then ill let them deliver it for me. Plus im unemployed right now and have some free time. I sort of like the drive to harmony, just not all of the work associated with it. I also like saving money

Just make sure you take your time and smell the roses on the way. A blown stut tower or broken stabilizer makes the cost of the coal go up to 3 or 4 hun per ton ;) Long money for coal when the work isn't there. Your right Brock,it is a nice ride :)

well I do take my time on the way back, sort of .. but hauling this coal is no different then having a full car load of people. So I don't see what the big deal really is

Doing what you gotta' do :!: Keeping the home fires burning is what it is all about. Many many years ago my coal hauler was a Chevy Chevette, and then a Dodge 024 before the first Chevy S10. Driving pickups ever since. Upgraded to a GMC Sierra 1500 with a homemade dump trailer capable of 2.5 tons of payload. We all do what we can with what we have, until time gives us the ability to do more. I am proud to see others doing what I once did, kind of like carrying the coal torch!

Making a coal run continues to be a good time. I just last week returned from Harmony with 2800#.The bonus is that harmony coal is about one half of the ash removal that I was used to.That alone is worth the trip.Glad I got it done when I did however because now they say 6"-12" more of the white stuff coming beginning tomorrow.Got to go gas up the Gravely now.
