Where can I go, or who can I call to get Blaschak bagged or bulk coal near breaker. Will be traveling to Pa. from Maine to pick up 5 or 6 tons. I did not think you could go direct to them, maybe I am mistaken. Thanks.

You can pick it up at Mahanoy city, I have. Pull on the scale, the lady will wave you on, then go up the hill to the left and pull under the chute for the coal you want(they are marked) someone will come to the window tell him what you want. Then once you are loaded go back to the scale, the lady will wave you in to pay

From Maine? won't any savings be used in fuel? Or will this be a road trip for fun and not much savings?

I'll bet that is about what it's going to cost you to do it yourself... (for bagged)
not even considering your time.

Lobstah if you are going to drive to PA for coal, I would go to uae harmony mine it is 16 miles from blaschak 150.00 per ton.uae does not have bagged coal , I do not know if you can buy bagged coal at blaschak, coalberner would know.If you go to uae and you want oiled coal, take a garden sprayer they sell oil 8.00 per gallon, spray the oil when they are loading you.

not to put down blaschak but recently i was about out of coal and couldn't get to my usual supplier so i bought a couple bags of blaschak to get me through.( i like to try other coals anyway to compare) anyways,blaschak was one of the worst coals i have ever tried. way too much ash and not the heat I'm used to.looked to have a lot of slate? in it(not shiny at all).said on the bag it was from the old refuse piles so maybe that was it.definitely wont buy again. just wanted to put my opinion in

gumptruck they load you with a skid loader, I think 4 buckets is about 1 ton. I take a 2 gallon garden sprayer and spray the oil as they load me. The one guy at uae told me he uses about 1 gallon per ton.

Personally I have burned a tractor trailer load worth of nut in the last three years, various brands including Blaschak...it all burned great for me.

Well their nut coal is perfectly dry, and the rice coal is usually not this wet, but this year it has been awful. I have burned a bit over a ton now and its not getting better.

I would like to try a different brand of coal but I like the 40 lbs bags and the local supplier is cheapest at $330 a pallet (1.2 tons). I tried a ton of kimmels 2 years ago and noticed no difference in heat output or ash content, and their bags are 10 lbs heavier :) I am in Southern Maine and I use Southern Maine Renewable Fuels, they are GREAT people.

I've gotten to the point where I refuse to buy Blaschak coal in a bag. Way too much water for my system. Kimmels has a lot of water in it too if it is stored outside but unlike Blaschak it will dry out through the woven bag.

Last year the Blaschak rice coal was always soaked and so much of the rice always stuck to the inside of the bag. The bags could be sitting next to the stove in an 80* room for a week or so and it wouldn't dry out. Burning stove coal now and it's a little wet but no where near how the rice was last year.

Where is there a place to buy Kimmel's coal in Mass, or NH?
