I went yesterday to Middleton Ohio and got bagged nut for $275 a pallet (2400#). It's an Amish seed and hardware store. They said the price would probably go up to $290 a pallet July 1st. I unloaded 3 1/2 ton onto my 2-wheeled cart, wheeled it into my walk-out basement and stacked it onto two pallets. I thought I felt fairly good handling a total of 7 tons of coal in one afternoon. Apparently as I slept a tractor trailer ran me over then backed up and did it again! Needless to say, I was more productive yesterday. :stretcher:

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.

I saw that also, so i called last friday. They gave me a number of a place for delivery from Wilkes-barre Ashley. I called and asked how many tons can you haul and the guy said 6 ton. So i said how much to here? 35 miles the short way, 60 minutes, up a few big hills. They said $155/ton delivered for pea. I called him monday, left a message, told him to get me the 6 ton. They called back last night said it was now $160 cause it went up but i said go ahead, it's all in the bin as of now.

mozz, Have you burned Hudson coal before, and if so how do you like it? I am thinking of buying a 25 ton load of rice.

Quality from Hudson will either be "good enough" to excellent if you get lucky. They have a lot of state contracts so they can't mess around.

Split a load with mr1precision up here in central Ma ending up costing $245/ton delivered for bagged Kimmells
Good think he had a fork truck, 9 tons was enough to unload from my trailer couldn't imagine if I had to load by hand and then unload into the cellar and stack :cry:
Cheapest I could find it last year (although I started looking in October) $300/ton by the end of the season it was closer to $340

I haven't burned their rice coal so i can't say. Unless it was the coal i got when i ordered it from a place in Scranton. I have burned the pea coal before and i don't have much to compare it to, it burns, leaves ash, heats the house. I would call and see if they will sell 25 ton, that is if you can get a truck lined up to deliver that far to you.

I had 12 tons delivered earlier in the spring in 50# bags. I threw each and every one in my basement window and after every 3/4 ton or so I walked down there and restacked the bags to clear room to throw more down. After 12 tons I was done for the week. :pepsi: I paid $250 a ton which is up quite a bit from last year, but last year I got the previous year's price so really it went up from 2 years ago. I figure 5 hours of hard labor is worth a year of comfort.
