Hayhay everyone.


Iv been behind the ball on getting coal this year chasing work. (Carpenter) And I went to call LeHigh Coal and navigation and there numbers are down and I was reading some articles on them. Does anyone know if they restructured? Changed names? Or just closed down? I really like there coal for the last few years. Burns hot, with little ash. And my father and I split between our house hold's about 10 tons a year. If anyone has any info on this breaker that would be great, or if you have suggestions on were to go for comparable coal.
I live in OC NY. and have always enjoyed the trip. Dont mind a ride, just looking for the better of the coal :-) I'm just not sure were to turn now. I was viewing the google map that had breaker listed, but saw alot of them were dated in 2009.
Any pointers on this would be greatly appreciated!

There are plenty of other breakers, choose another.....

I don't know where OC is, but I'm assuming Orange County.....and in that case I do know you area a little.
What size are you burning? What kind of stove, boiler or furnace? How much do you need/use? You can look over the posts on suppliers/ breakers or just head down I 84 to I81. Blashak is excellent, UAE is excellent, and many others in the general area. Superior, Lenigs.......
