now thats messed up! seriously... Hanson Coal & Oil (check it), Williams Coal & Oil (check it), North River Farm & Feed (check it).... its a frigging conspiracy around here :mad3:

Im going to get an old rust bucket trailer... duck tape it and bungee cord it together (like my friend Smitty) ....kidding but not really :D and im driving to the closest place to buy 1 ton bagged of Blaschak (Im in Duxbury Ma. if anyone near RI, Cape Cod can tell me where to go??? )

@capecoaler (i will drive on cape for 280 bagged (do you know what brand name coal?) ....also i burn Nut.

I sure wish Rich would make a run or two a year to all his members in MA/NH (ill even unload the bags and serve him soup in front of the stove) :punk: does he still have a 10-20 ton truck or know anyone in PA who wants a new england run once or twice per season with pre established loyal route in place already? I try to think of how much in fairness a driver can make if they can hold 20 ton bagged coal (buy for $140 maybe? sell for $280 maybe?) ....idk maybe its not worth it and thats why coal is so expensive here :cry:

I could ship coal back to you from MN at my cost and it might still be cheaper for you toothy

Im betting you will find a solution, even if it is tunneling a path to PA to dig your own

No one is buying bagged coal for $140./ton. You can't even buy bulk coal at that price. If I had to pay $400./ton, I'd either just burn oil or I'd find a way to buy less expensive coal.

Blaschack 40# bags, $298 ton delivered, from Squire lumber in Monson to Southwick.

Maybe Cornwall Coal out in NY would put together a trailer for us if we had enough of a buy?

I'm pretty sure Squire would do that for us Mass. Boys

Squire is where I get mine - quite a haul from Doug's place there though ... but *censored*, at $300/ton vs. $400, it's worth the drive!

There's also that place in Three Rivers .. CSM .. they're usually close to Squire's as far as pricing goes.

You would have to bag your own on The Cape...
That was a bulk price but they do have bags for you...
Agway has some decent prices but looks like they are doing kimmels...
They used to do Santa Coal...
Liked the plastic bags...

You definitely need to form a cooperative with a couple of guys reasonably close by it is what I have done. Split a TT load and you will be amazed how much you can save. There are obviously some logistics to work out but they are worth the effort.

Doug, Get or rent yourself a tandem axle grain tight trailer and head on over to the "region". Think of it as a vacation that pays its own way. OR hire up a tri-axle to do it for you. If you have to pay $400/ton there and could buy at the breaker for $170/ton ,that's $130/ton to defray hauling charges. X 20 or so tons ,that is 2.6k. Whatcha waitin' for? Mike

I've worked in the Chemical industry all of my adult life, and TT always meant Tank Truck (as in liquid containing tank truck) for us. If we want to refer to a truckload of dry goods or drummed goods (or nigh on anything other than bulk liquids) we always use "T/L".

Problem is T/L could be on strait truck,So use semi-tanker,semi load would better clarify than T/T = Tractor Trailer,come to think of it they probably could haul rice coal in a pneumatic tanker & blow it into a bin just like lime,feed,etc,doubtful on blowing nut or bigger tho

thanks for the clarification guys... fyi, there was a thread here with vids and photo's of tankers delivering and "blowing" in pellets toothy , so im sure rice coal is doable too
