Blaschak Coal

PostBy: NH Fire Dog On: Sat Sep 24, 2011 7:52 pm

Picked up a pallet of Blaschak Rice Coal today. Took two trips in the SUV to get it home (she was sitting low) Decided to stay with Blaschak because I like the fact that it comes wet. Keeps the dust down, and the Leisure Line stoker doesn't mind a bit if some wet rice ends up in the hopper. I know I paid more than some of you but if I had to rent a truck or a trailer to travel to some distant dealer or breaker to save $30 or so it would of been a wash. So I paid $319 a ton. Still a good savings over oil. :)

Started burning rice coal in '97 and retired my LL in the spring of '09. Got my coal from a few different dealers during that time but never paid attention to the brand or where it came from. Some was wet, some was dry, some was dirty, some was not, some even had a lot of dirt in it from being stored outside. Put in another stoker this fall and have all my coal purchased from a new dealer that I had never dealt with before. Learning what I have on here the last couple of years, I paid attention to what this guy was selling, and it is Blaschak. Not the reason I bought it, but now know enough to know the difference and will pay more attention and see how it goes. Already like the idea of a lot less dust. Besides, the family I bought the coal from was not only the cheapest place around, they were very nice and a pleasure to deal with.

Get it from Henry?
Honestly, if you are in that area, I don't know where you would get it cheaper...
There is a guy about 10 minutes from him that is around 400.
Anyone that got it a little less, just a week or so ago, missed the increase from Blashak.
Pellets went up too...

My dealer was ahead of the Blaschak price increase. He normally gets about two to three (tri-axle dump truck)loads for the fall then another two to three loads after Christmas. This year he ordered 10 loads right off the bat! So I'll be getting my last load for the same as the others...$265 a ton.

I got 5.08 tons of Blaschak nut coal about 2 weeks ago. Looks beautiful too me! Actually yes it looks like a very consistent product as Blaschak usually is known to be. Some one said they blend their coal for consistancy and I believe that. I will say that their nut coal slightly smaller than Readings. I had a few bags of Reading nut and the pieces seem a bit larger eyeballing it. So i don't know if the Reading is larger (than normal nut) or the Blaschak smaller? It's not a big difference but noticable.
