UAE vs local coal???

PostBy: BeerMonley On: Sun Sep 16, 2012 9:51 am

ill have access to a dump truck this year for coal (no more 3/4 ton trailer trips for me) is it worth the 2 hr (one way) drive to UAE ??? Locally i can go to agel in about 20 minutes.

Why not go to Hudson? They are right outside of Pittston.

see if you have a UAE suplier nearby and get a small load.Don't know how far UAE is from your home, but 20 minutes for local coal might not make it worth the trip to Mount Carmel

Me thinks Agel gets it's coal from Hudson anyway. Call and ask.

I'd try some of that Kassey Kassa. They aren't too much different of a drive and I've been burning some and others I know have had very good results.

so a few phone calls and Kassey Kassa is definitly cheaper than agel ($20 a ton picked up less).
So my next question is how is there coal???

Hi Beermonley.

I'm right over the hill from you in Factoryville. I got all of my coal from Casey Kassa last year and was very happy with it.
Once you factor in gas and other things, CK works for me. I usually grab a 1/2 ton at a time in my Ford Ranger. I have used Agel also
with decent results but think I prefer CK.

I am from the tunkhannock area so it looks like alot of us are neighbors here, I had 4 ton of rice delivered from Casey back in june for 175 a ton. Driver was very good and helped me out. This is my first year burning coal so I have alot to learn and it started when I thought my bin would hold 4 ton but only held 3 so i had to find storage for the other ton but it all worked out just a little extra work on my part.
