Remember, it's not a job, it's an ADVENTURE! (acknowledging all you current and ex-navy guys, too)
60 lbs a hour....Do you have a rail spur design ready for implementation? 100 ton loads would be great. Get a skid steer in the basement to play with....and a Vactor Truck to do the ashes.....
Love to see that home.....someone was very affluent, and it is nice to preserve that part of history.
The 85R will 'set off the satellites', they will think some "Thermal Event" is in progress!!! Just send them off to 'Alice's Restaurant' for a 'Sit long, talk much' session.
The pics can wait, but the 'voyeurs' on this site sure love them. Hope the move is effortless and that you can stay very comfortable in the 'new digs'.
Yes, running flat out it's a gross input of something like 1.1 million btus/hour. I've been running on 12 teeth, which equates to about 60 lb or 780,000 btu/hr. I've been told the Mills 350 likes to be run hard - maybe I'll crank it up a bit when the cold weather arrives.
Tomorrow I'm planning to take a measurement of actual consumption - could be scary. Local terrain for a rail spur is difficult, but I probably should be looking for someone with a dumper for a transload movement.
