Hi Westy, I am a veteran truck driver of 22 years of experience. There is no such thing as a backhaul. If someone needs freight moved than they need to hire a truck. The word backhaul implies that someone is willing to work for a much lower paycheck than someone else. Now having said that, 37.00 a ton is an excellent price for bit, I live 50 km. north of Philadelphia, and will go in on some if you are interested. I can use about 2 tons. also Jeremysdemo from new Jersey is also interested in some bit. Pls. pm me if you want to share the cost. 2x2 is good but 4x4 or bigger is better in a hand fired stove.Westy wrote:Robby wrote:Purchased 5500 Kilo (12125lbs) yesterday for $222.45 Canadian including tax.
2"x2" bit. High volitiles, extremly low sulpher.
Easy to burn.
Robby, which mine is that bit from? I have a friend who is a load broker, and may be able to arrange a backhaul into Ontario for me.
If my calculations are right that works out to about $37CAD/ton.
