I got 3.25 tons back in March in my trailer loose, not bagged. It has great heat but the ash sucks. Compared to UAE the btu is similar but twice the ash....I'm burning it (rice) in a Keystoker KA6. The UAE went to almost powder and the Blaschak is pellets of ask....not a clinker to see but high ash....anyone else have that problem?

Yea but UAE is no better right now. If you haven't been paying attention, UAE went to white ash run of the mill stuff...

I am hoping for some help from you guys.
I started using Kimmels bagged rice coal first, got sick of it being soaking wet, then switched to Reading Anthracite about 5 years ago. I am kinda happy with them,
good burn, I like the poly bags..etc..
I am a local with a stake body and can haul 8 ton at a time.
With me getting older, and a weaker back, Blaschak is looking attractive with the 40Lb bags, problem is, they will not sell to me directly.
Does anybody know the cheapest dealer in central PA for Blaschak?


Btw..called Reading today, about $220 ton of bagged rice coal..
called a local store( I believe selling the same coal)..$288
the price we pay for the middle man!!!

This years bags are super wet! I'm getting a real excess of water out of each bag, enough to put the fire out. Anyone have tips to get the water out without dumping the coal out?

put a slit in them--I picked up 10 bags & they were a lil damp-that's all. Dealer keeps them under cover--just good tarps??????????????? I guess I'm glad I primarily do bulk--never a problem

Yeah, I went from bags to bulk, now back to bags. This extra work drying out the coal is defeating the convenience of bagged.

How hard is it to dump a couple hundred lbs of coal in a container and let it drain?

I used a couple pallets of the wet bags.
Never found it necessary to dump the coal out of the bags to dry.
I just made a very small slit on the corner and stood the bag up vertical and gravity did the rest over night or by 24 hrs. later.
This was w/ rice size and the hole slit was small enough that usually no coal leaked out.

I use an Old Salad Fork , quick and easy way to make drain holes. I must say though, my 6 ton I bought last season was the wettest I've seen.
