Any recommendations for coal companies near Scranton?

PostBy: MGrunza On: Wed Dec 08, 2010 10:57 pm

Hello all... i will hopefully be installing my boiler in about 2 weeks. I figured i would do some preliminary research on who is burning what coal at what prices?
Does anyone have any recommendations on coal companies near Scranton? I checked with a few places today and most prices were around $200/ton delivered.
I am more concerned about quality. More heat, less ash. If i have to pay $10-$20 more a ton, it's worth it for better quality, well in my opinion. I have seen it first hand while burning pellets. A better quality wood pellet throws more heat, and there is less ash, and less cleaning. With coal i would assume it means more heat, and less unburned coal/slag.

Any coal company names and prices would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Happy Holidays!

As far as i know, most of the local coal drivers are getting their coal from Hudson, that includes Agel. Unless they tell you otherwise, they go to the closest breaker, if you want deep mined, you are going to pay more per ton because it is a lot longer drive for the driver. So you can't blame them. Chances are Hudson has gotten lots of coal this year from Superior, whom no longer deep mines, only strip mines. Call Agel and ask, they should tell you what breaker they were dealing with. A lot of us this year are having lots of ash, i see no problem as i dump it on the driveway. Klinkers in a boiler should be no problem. I would tell the thread starter to drive down to Agel and see the coal first hand before he buys it.
