Coal Prices and Quality near Scranton

PostBy: MGrunza On: Mon Nov 21, 2011 10:46 pm

Hello everyone,

This is my second season burning coal. I have a Keystoker KA-6. Last January I ordered 4 tons of rice at $190/ton. The quality was pretty good also. This year I ordered 4 tons in early September, it was $205 a ton and that was for mixed Rice/Buckwheat. They wanted $210 for straight rice. The quality is quite poor. I took a few handfulls, and washed it and looked through it and found about 20% of it to be slag.

I was so excited last season to be burning coal. I am still very happy that I am not forking out money to the oil pirates, but I am a little discouraged with the sudden hint of the price and demand of coal going up. I live about 20 minutes outside of outside Scranton. Can anyone close to the area give me an idea of how much you are paying a ton, and what the quality is like? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

where did you get it from? I sometimes got it from agel and sometimes from back mountain heat, the latter is more expensive, this is my first year burning rice and I got it from agel (170 a ton picked up) and I guess its burning ok, I have nothing to compair it to though. I used to burn nut coal and it was def different coal from each place, burned different and made different ashes.

Hi MGrunza.

I just returned to burning coal last year and was buying bags of nut at Agel. Nice people and it seemed to burn ok.
This year I am trying Casey Kasa from down near Pittston in Laflin. Just started burning last week so it's a little early
to give a full assessment of their coal, but so far, so good. They do not deliver to the Factoryville area or have bagged, so I've been
picking up a 1/2 ton at a time with my Ford Ranger. $170 a ton picked up.
