Buying Coal?

Buying Coal?

PostBy: thecarver On: Mon Oct 28, 2013 12:15 am

Been away a while. Hope all are well. My computer went down. I lost the book mark to this site. Took me an hour to find it. Has anyone here ever thought about getting a group together of those burning coal , buying say 10 to 15 tons and sharing it? Coal is getting to expensive in my opinion. I may just change to a wood stove. I get all the free wood I want.

If it's not cut,split,hauled,stacked it's not free. Several trips to Doctor's office for back pain and lost of work for soreness will bring you back to coal. :P

tc, it's a real good sounding idea until people start thinking about the space to put it, pallets of bagged or bulk--machinery of some sort to move it/distribute it, guestimating weight????--hell, if you're talking a shovel & buckets or just throwing bags around, probably be real comparative to DOING WOOD LOL

don't forget building a warehouse roof to cover it all!
I agree that getting together to bring up 20 ton from PA is a great idea, the problem is logistics and how we distribute it all to those pitching in :cry: (I wonder how much it cost to rent a large coal truck with chute and how large do these trucks get?)... if we all had bobcats or at least a john deere front end loader sitting in our driveways it would be a perfect plan! :clap:

Buy a truckload yourself. you gotta know somebody/place to put it . Cant afford it you say? How bout getting an energy loan on a payback term equal to the # of months supply your buying? The savings per ton and yearly price increases would easily offset the cost of the loan,no? Or maybe sell some of that free wood your gettin ? :notsure:
