All the Coal is in !

PostBy: Kungur On: Sat Sep 07, 2013 5:04 pm

The last few days I have taken a bit of time to move 5 tons of coal from my stock pile to the bins in my basement. This involved shoveling into the wheel barrow then wheeling it about 100' to the chute, that goes into the basement, then shoveling it into the chute. So actually I handled 10 tons! No wonder I am a bit tired!
Cold weather!! I am ready!!!

Do you think a shop vac would move pea sized coal?

And keep in mind that you didn't have to cut it down, cut it to length, stack it, season it, move it again, etc.
