Mammoth Coal issues

PostBy: dtzackus On: Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:58 am

Hey, I bought a ton last winter and I had no problems, so I bought another ton this past summer, I switched over to Mammoth coal and noticed a lot of fines while I shoveled it into buckets. Seems like I am not getting a good heat out of the coal and a lot, I mean a lot, of iron out of it.

Anyone else have any problems with the coal?

I started burning Mammoth nut Friday afternoon and it burns like it did for me last year it's clean the size is not so consistent(on the bigger side but thats ok with me)clean,good heat, and low ash. Now I'm not sure where he got it from(I forgot to ask him)and I'm sure it was mined this winter so maybe you just got some from a different part of the vain.

This is the ash from 45Lbs of coal in a 24HR period.

Yes Rob R it shakes real nice, so far my Hitzer loves it but we will see with temps below zero again. I also got 600# of that in stove size to mix but I will need a shovel I don't think my scoop will handle softball size pieces :D . Dammit Fred you spoiled my secrete :lol: Keepaeyeonit

This pix is the last 4 buckets from the second of my 3 bins--2 down, one to go--we're going to be just fine & I'm thinkin I won't have to touch those 80 some bags I picked up a couple weeks ago---nice stash though :D DAMN, I forgot to put a pencil in that pix :mad: :(

My dad and myself each are burning it this winter. I am still going strong and he just ran out. He bought a couple bags of kimmels from the local agway and is having good results with that too. Contrary to what most say, I feel that my harman plowed through harmony coal faster than mammoth coal by quite a bit. My dad has a Mark III for what it's worth. I will be filling up this spring for next winter. Plus at 150 a ton you can't beat it. Ash looks the same as when. I burned harmony deep mine coal. On a side note, a guy I work with has a EFM boiler and has not had good results( a lot of fines), but the old hand-fired jobs seem to eat it up nicely. At least in my family's case. :)
