I'd say it will not work w/ fist size coal.
Hopper bottoms are usually used to haul grain, but can be used to haul other materials.
Live bottom trailers have a conveyor belt on the bottom of the trailer tub that pushes the load material out of the back of the trailer. The tub does not have to be raised to deposit the materials.
Here is a guy w/ a live bottom
and he has hauled coal for members here:
