Coal Quality: Lehigh or Tamaqua?

Coal quality: Lehigh or Tamaqua?

PostBy: gorpot On: Tue May 14, 2013 10:45 am

I am going to have 22 tons of rice coal delivered soon. I have prices from both Lehigh and Tamaqua. Both prices including delivery are the same. My question is, who do you think has the higher quality coal? Thanks

Been burning the Lehigh coal for about a week. My 520 likes it, white ash, good steady fire.

Lehigh puts out a good product, and they advertise on this forum...give them a call.
