I just started burning coal and set up an auger to lift the rice coal from my bin on the ground to my 1st floor deck using an 11' long 4" diameter auger I got from Tractor Supply. It dumps into a tilt truck then I just wheel in the house near the stove. Works really well. Good luck!
Yep, same thing, I bough mine at farmer boy ag, it was $80 cheap than tractor supply. I made reversed it's direction, did some modifications to the shaft to reverse it and put a 1 1/2 HP ag motor on it with a switch. Not that fast but it doesn't make a mess and is better than shoveling
. I think it takes about 20 minutes to unload 3-4 ton.
