I ran some this past winter. It was excellent. Low ash, high heat. Seemed to get pretty good mileage out of it. They post specs on the website. :)

Blaschak can ship fill/ship supersacs, and I bet there are other breakers that can manage them.

Then you will need someone with a liftgate or a cherry picker with forks, seems that would be another expence, I thought we were trying to save $$$. Build your own portable box or super sacks and go bulk delivery.

Do whatever works for you. I think the idea was that Super-sacks would be somewhere between the cost of bulk coal, and bagged. You need equipment to unload a TT load of bagged coal either way, and if the super-sacks are the right compromise of cost and convenience compared to bulk/bagged...it might make sense for some people.
