In order to get a good price I had to buy what I hope is a three year supply. But I don't believe coal or diesel is going to go down in price so I guess this is controling my future costs.. For a while anyway.

Bought all the trucker could haul from Pa to Michigan, he brought me 29.5 tons, I paid $120/ton for the coal and $46/ton delivery. So that is $166 delivered 575 miles to my backyard. He was about 12,000# over legal. :o :) Of course he charges by the ton, so he mad extra by hauling extra.

It's in a temporary coal bin, while I rebuild and enlarge the perminant bin. I'll post photos over the weekend when I get home.

EDIT: this was a 'one-time-only' deal. It is the result of contacting friends. Pulling some strings, calling in favors etc. The best I could do today would be about $194/ton delivered to me in Michigan. Probably about 23-24tons max.

Do you really use almost 10 tons a year?

Last year I burned around 15-17 tons. I burnt hand load from November through January, then installed a stoker feed to my boiler. I used less with the stoker, but still burnt a lot. This is for domestic hot water too.

This was still a huge savings over my propane use that would have been in excess of $6000. And I would have had the house at a much cooler temp on propane. [60*-62* instead of 68-70*]

I used 2.5-3.5 tons per month in a cold month. I'm heating a drafty ~4000sqft farmhouse with 41 windows and 5 exterior doors. little of which are newer than the '40's or '50's. Some sections of the house need some 'bulldozer renovation', some have been renovated and updated. All windows have mylar film 'storms' and three doors are caulked shut.

This year with my newly aquired AxemanAnderson 260M boiler, I'm hoping to keep the use under 10 tons for the season, but this is pretty iffy, considering my past burn quantities. Time will tell.

I'll be posting progress on the AA boiler and it's use and performance all season.

Had 4 ton of rice delivered last week. Paid $135.00 per ton.
Will be installing a Harman DVC-500 in late Sept.
Hope that 4 ton will be enough for the winter.
Burned coal many years ago and am looking forward to burning again.
The last time I burned coal I purchase it for $ 80.00 a ton 15 years ago.
The DVC seems like it is a real heat machine.
I previously burned a dixon coal stove.

I just got 6 ton of buckwheat coal delivered today, @ $208 a ton. There was a $13.50 deliver charge per trip. There were two trips, all total $1275. This should carry me through the heating season. The last year I used propane I spent $3300. for the heating season. :)

Do you deliver to Dickson City?

I was in Dickson City today, picked up 1/2 ton bagged pea coal for $120. The options where I live are limited, the only supplier that delivers loose coal here charged $260 per ton and I had a lots of problems last year due to impurities in the coal (I still have a small amount of that coal I won't burn).

I called all over north-western/central PA today and I came up with $155 ton (bulk rice anthracite, picked up) to $185/ton. The places that deliver averaged about $50 per load (from 20-60 miles one way), 5-6 ton max per load. In Western NY it varied from $180/ton to $260/ton (!) for bulk rice anthracite delivered.

I just purchased 7 tons of pea, oil treated, delivered for $167 per ton. I am in Schuylkill County, PA.

There are ads in the local paper from a supplier in South Tamaqua, PA for $145/155 per ton (depending on size) that includes local delivery.

Hey bob did you get it where i told you if so they charge a Extra 5.95 per gal for oil if you got the oil because of dust remember you can get it wet with water no charge oil is good in cold weather you do not need it in warm weather just order wet coal it is all washed at the breaker anyway the oil is for when it is cold out it will help the coal from freezing up so next time order without oil you will save some $ take care talk to you later :)
