This one might just be a crazy crack-head. It is listed for $25??? And says it's "cleaned up and in great shape" . And then says "NO TEXTS, CALLS ONLY" but gives no phone number??? No phone number in the contact button either.

"We have 6 million tons of Pittsburgh Steam Coal, which will screen out to at least 3 million tons of high grade coal, for sale. It is already mined and piled up and ready for transport from our location in Westmoreland County PA. We will give you time to truck it out to either the Ohio River to barge it down the river which is about 35 miles away or to the RR which is about 20 miles away. We will make you a deal on it when you contract for all of it. Serious buyers only. Contact us and we will call you back immediately"

6 Million Tons!?!?

I wonder what "Steam Coal" is?

-Don




Steam coal is Bituminous coal of very low to high quality/BTU/low ash
that is either used in walking grate coal stokers or burnt
in pulverised coal boilers for making steam to spin turbines
to generate electricity.

The Subituminous coal mined in wyoming is very low in sulfur content
and "relatively" clean burning.

BUT they have to burn twice as much of it to generate the same
amount of electricity.

Thanks for the clarification.

I don't think that will burn in the stokers that I have.

Darn.

I know we are getting to the end of another season but the price and age is excellent, and a proven stove.
