is their coal premium or from the tamaqua area


i just checked their site and they get their coal from blaschak coal which is not premium, but not bad, you only get what you pay for, like fuel for your car

Maybe so but Im also not one to put high octane in my car when I can get low octane for .60 cheaper a gallon and the car runs the same. I’m not trying to keep up with the Jones's and say hay look at my coal it from Tamaqua aren’t I grand LOL The whole idea of burning coal is to save money the coal I get from them is always clean, no rocks or twigs , burns super-hot and burns down to a fine powdery ash. Now if you can show me some scientific evidence that buying coal from Tamaqua will yield me enough additional BTU's to make up for the 40 a ton extra, I might think about it. As we all know the testing reports are severely flawed and may not even be the same the deeper they mine the coal. Whats the ash content of your coal?

call south tamaqua coal pockets for ash content, i do not have an updated test sheet infront of me right now, but from what i hear is the premium burns better and you get better heat from it, we hauled from there once and had many complaints but have not had any complaints from the south tamaqua coal pocket coal, our clients tell us that they can clearly see that they spend less on the premium compared to the price diff. from the un premium.

Ok, in all fairness, I have nothing to compare the coal to that I get from the coal your delivering from Tamaqua, I have been burning coal for 3 years now and have always got blaschak delivered so maybe I just dont know any better, whats your minimum delivery to the Mt Pocono area, I would buy 2 tons and give it a try, it maybe worth the 70 or 80 dollars price difference to see if it does actually burn better but Im not going to fill my whole bin.

i would put money on it that they are not delivering premium coal from where it is found to be the best and hardest in our hometown of tamaqua,


mlchelp wrote:Wow 220 a ton, thats about 40 - 50 more than everyone else I around here, what happened to very cheap LOL


I think the title of this thread is a little misleading. The words "Very Cheap" tend to bring in folks looking for the coal dealer with the "lowest bid". After reading a few of the most recent pages of this thread, it seems that you (butchthecoalman) aren't claiming to have the lowest price, but rather a better than average product. That's fine, but perhaps if you titled your ad as "Premium coal for a reasonable price" people wouldn't be surprised if your quoted price is higher than the cheapest guy in their area

butchthecoalman wrote:where is your location, if out of pa, it is very reasonable for the type of coal you would be buying i can guarentee you wont find better coal


I haven't burned any of your coal, so I can't comment on the performance. I have certainly observed differences in btu & ash content in the different coal sources I have used, so I think it is fair to say that the cost to buy, and the cost to use can be different. Lastly, the word "guarantee" is a strong word, and the words "best" & "better" are subjective. If you are going to market your coal as the best someone can buy, you better get some fresh specifications posted and deliver a product that is as-claimed.

It's marketing 101 at work. Meaningless terms. If you want to buy coal that will perform to your needs you need to buy to a measurable specification. That's a coal analysis. Something done by the coal mine or coal breaker company. Never done by the residential coal seller. Even if you buy coal to a specification how do you know if it meets specification? The only way is to test it with a laboratory analysis. That costs money, so it's not done. What is done is a sample of the coal is taken on delivery. Actually two samples, one is kept by the seller and one is kept by the buyer. Then if the buy is not satisfied with the coal he has the sample tested at his expense. If it doesn't measure up to the agreed purchase contract specs the seller has legal recourse over the seller. If the seller contests the testing results he can have his saved sample tested. It's a pipe dream to think any thing like this would ever be done for residential coal sales. Bottom line it's all marketing BS.

My guess is that if you want coal, and you can agree on a price, this
man will bring you some. If you want to get it somewhere else, please do so.
