stove coal prices

PostBy: lzaharis On: Sun Jun 17, 2012 1:07 pm

Happy fathers day,

I have yet to ask my local supplier how much they would charge me for
sacks of 25 pound weight for stove coal- I am under a low exertion/25 pound
lifting limit due to my health.

I am looking for a list of coal breakers and bulk prices for small tonnages stove coal,

I have a two ton dump trailer that I can carry the bulk in or load the small
herd of five gallon pails(40 plus) with stove coal.

I enquired early in the spring froma supplier in Pa and I was told 300 a ton+-picked up at their yard in Pa.

thanks much

I would think $ 300.00 per ton picked up is too much. I know someone near me a couple hundred miles from coal country getting a bulk delivery for the price you are being quoted.

Hello Fred and good morning to you,


The supplier I inqui9red of for price was Keystone Coal,

the price was $375.00 for each 1.25 ton pallet of bagged coal.

I am beginning to think that simply buying local and picking it up

with my dump trailer will be easier to pay for even in bulk and

shoveling it into my own buckets.

I see you are in the Fingerlakes Region...very pretty area, my wife grew up on Keuka Lake. What town do you live in/near?

There should be a coal dealer nearby that can work with you. I did a quick search around Penn Yan, here is what I got: http://www.yellowpages.com/penn-yan-ny/ ... +yan%2C+ny

I am looking for a list of coal breakers and bulk prices for small tonnages stove coal


I think it will be more economical for you to source the coal close to home, but if you want to go for a ride here is a map with the breaker locations.

Google maps with coal breaker

You will need to call the breakers and make sure they have stove size available, not all of them handle it.

Stove coal generally is more expensive than the other sizes. At Hudson it was $20 but they didn't process it. I think over Casey's they were charging about $10 more but that was 15 years ago.

When you say "stove coal" do you mean the large chunks of coal that go in a stove, as opposed to "nut coal" (medium chunks) or "pea coal" (small pieces)? Or do you just mean "coal to put in the stove"? Make sure you use the right terminology when you place an order, because you are likely to get what you ask for. :!:

Regardless, you mentioned the restriction of not lifting more than 25 pounds. Maybe you could buy 50-pound bags and hire a high-school kid to come in every week or two and fill your smaller buckets. (Good luck finding a high school kid that wants to work. ;) ). Incidentally, a two-foot length of 6-inch stovepipe holds between 21 and 25 pounds. That's what I use to carry in my coal and feed the stove. I don't know how much a 5-gallon pail full of coal weighs, but I would guess more than 25 pounds.

Good point. Stove coal is a specific size like nut or pea, about the size of baseball.

Last year I bought 5 tons of Blaschak bulk nut coal from my supplier. It was a bit on the small side but not as bad as the nut they bagged last season (also small). This year I have 6 tons coming and it's a mix of 3 tons nut and 3 tones stove coal. Both my stoves do quite well on this diet. No extra charge for the bulk stove or mix either.

Richard, Why is stove coal more expensive? Any idea? It would seem to me to be easier to produce.

I'm not Richard, DJ, but I can tell you that of the two brands
that we are familiar with, Kimmel and Blaschak, there is no premium on 'stove'.
Kimmel, however, does charge more for 'rice'....

Dan, This makes sense, you have to run tighter sizing on rice so it would make sense to be more expensive. I've always paid the same price per ton for stove,nut and pea. But I don't buy from down in PA. I do notice that stove coal is harder to find. Not sure why that is either. I've heard several times that the price of stove coal tends to be a bit higher, like Richards statement above... But can't figure out why that would be...

My supplier charges the same for nut or stove coal (Blaschak). My Yukon-Eagle furnace likes either nut or stove coal. For the 2012 heating season I paid $360 per 2400# pallet. Not bad considering I'm in Michigan. I've only bought small quantities of stove in the past to see how my furnace liked it, and since it does, I have four pallets for this year.

May not be the case everywhere but I know it was always a little more, they didn't make much of it so that may have been the reason. On the other hand the barley was always cheaper, there was a lot of it and no demand.

As far as the rice costing more that's a new one on me but I would imagine it's the demand.

Once they crush it down they get whatever they get. They only want to crush it once because they make a lot barley/dust.
