If your wanting to go into a coal delivery business,you should talk to the mayor Richard,since he and his family was in the business.He had 2 high lift trucks for sale also,not sure if he has them still.As for a non-CDL truck(under 26,000 lbs) your only wasting time and fuel as the payload will not be enough, as in you can only carry a few tons and make more trips.
To obtain a Pa.CDL linense,you will need a class B,and any truck over 26,000 lbs. should have air brakes,witch you will need a air brake endorsement for that,along with a medical card. Go to a Pa. liense office or a notary or tag service and they will have a commerical drivers manual with all the required info for obtaining the CDL license.The general knowledge test is 100 questions and the air brake endorsement is 30 questions,and are simple common sense answers.After the test,you will be issued a learners permit,and only a properly endorsed CDL liense holder must drive along with you. I think after 6 weeks you a eligable for a test at the Pa. motor vehicle dept,witch will be a walk around pre-test,then a obsticle course of parking and backing into a space,then you will be able to take the on road test with the Pa.DOT officer.And don't get upset when you fail the test,everyone does I think it's part of the process
Good luck with the new business
