Reading bagged coal?

PostBy: Pa papa On: Thu Nov 04, 2010 6:34 pm

Anyone else having trouble getting Reading bagged coal? Or is it just my dealer here in W.PA. I've been waiting since September 29. The story I got was the bagging machine has been broken. I went to another dealer this evening who has Blashack. The dealer said they bag their own......with a shovel. "If it breaks, we just buy another one." Works for me.

My dealer has lots of bagged Reading Coal, but I think he got his delivered late summer.

As a matter of fact that is exactly what I did. Found another dealer that was a little further away but he had Blaschak so i picked up 1200lb from him. Damn that's nice looking coal. I see what you mean. My AHS-130 is happy now.
When I think of all the years I messed around with wood. I could just kick myself. Like my buddy always says" If you're going to be stupid ya got to be tough"

Hey - you are in Clarion! You really should abandon READING coal and drive a dump truck across rt 80 to the UAE mine and pick up 3 or 4 tons.

The cost will be less than half what you are getting robbed on READING and the quality is 2 x good.

I burned READING for 2 years and after one night of burning UAE I am hooked for life. Ill never look back at surface coal.

pm coal berner for directions.

This is my first year. Lots to learn. Lots of good options popping up. Thanks. Buying it loose is my goal in a year or two but I'd like to run a couple years to get a feel for what I actually burn.
The Blaschak is burning really nice in my limited opinion. Although this weather we're having sure isn't asking much of the 130. I think she'd be happier if it would drop down into the 20's. or 30's. She said she was "really bored with these temperatures and questioned me as to why I had to light her off last week?
My Reading order (5T) still isn't in yet and if it isn't in by Friday, I'll get more Blaschak for the winter and be done with it.
I take it the UAE is all deep mined?
I'll be sure to try it someday.
