Connecticut Coal ???

PostBy: jb96 On: Mon Oct 17, 2011 7:16 pm

Hello all, I am newbie to the coal-burning world just installed a Leisure Line 220 boiler, the boiler is great and the folks at Leisure Line even better. I have called around the state for coal pricing seems to be about the same 6-7 dollars a bag. I am burning Blaschak at this time and do not have anything to compare it to, I think I am going to pick up some Schuykill this weekend to compare. Has any ever thought about doing a coal co-op in the state to see if there is way to get a couple of large deliveries to help reduce cost? I have reached out to a coal broker to see what there pricing is for bagged, I also have spoken to a couple of breakers in PA and the current price for bulk pickup is about 160-170 a ton, a have spoken to a few trucking companies and have estimates of adding about 40.00 per ton for delivery. Anyone with any thoughts on this please let me know :?

A few of my neighbors and I go in on a TT load. We paid $228.00 a ton this year with trucking at $40.00 a ton. I have 2.5 ton of bagged rice I need to get rid of if you are interested I will give you a good deal. Let me know. Ken

NWBuilder what do you want for the 2.5 of rice?
I have had good results from Tri County Coal's bulk coal just over the NY line from Danbury.

We got our coal from Dalmation Anthricite coal I would have to ask my Father in law for who the driver was they use independent contractors to haul for them. I guess the guy who trucks for us is a real good guy and they have used him for several years. The coal has been decent, I have burned it for 2 years and the rest of the guys have been burning it for several years now. I can get more details if you want them.

Ken any information would be great I spoke to a breaker today Schuylkill Coal very nice folks, they use a coal broker and I have gotten some pricing for the coal and trucking, If you could provide me with the trucking company you use so I can get some additional costs for trucking. Has anyone burned Schuylkill coal?

I burned it last year, it was very good. HOCON in Torrington and a few other locations carries it.

Schuylkill is good coal. If you are going to get a truck load, and looking to co-op, let me know. I'd be interested in a few tons.

Afternoon

I have found a trucking company that will bring 20 Pallets of coal to CT for 900.00 I got a price from the coal broker that deals with Schuylkill for 250.00 a pallet so the cost of a pallet would be 295.00 (250 + 45). I believe the coal is selling for 350.00 at Hocon gas in Torrington so it is not a huge savings I would like to get 6 or 7 pallets of rice anyone else intreseted?

I think a pallet of Schuylkill coal is 2500#'s, there should be fifty, 50 pound bags. Twenty pallets would weigh 50,000 pounds. That is a heck of a load.
How about Blaschak? What would their price be?

The only reason why I would stay with the white bag guys is that the rice is washed, pretty low coal dust plumes when moving it. Is this washed stuff?
