If the stoker coal is anthracite that would be prefered. But either way, 15 tons would heat most homes about three years. You can't beat a deal like that. I would find out which coal to go with and start shopping for a unit.

it's not going to be anthricite. it's going to be subbituminous where he's at. however if you could get lignite, it tends to burn with some fairly nice properties, however with a lower btu content.

And they call it stoker coal? Can it burn in a stoker or is that left over from some railroad thing?

yea, it's made to burn in a chain grate spreader stoker more than likely; basically almost a nut coal, not as clean and with more fines, but much more uniform than ROM. what were u thinking it was ?

When he said stoker, I thought perhaps it was imported from PA. Silly me. :)
