there's 4 ton in there. i will use my shop vac to suck it up and then load the hopper. also have another bottom part of the vac. so i can fill 2 at same time. i bought 1/2" foam air cleaner (you can wash) to wrap the tube ( suction part inside the vac) and womens knee high panty hose to hold it in place. :D all i need is somebody to come over once in awhile when it gets low and push more over from the other end of the bin. wasn't to happy bought cutting my floor up. gota do what ya gota do. :D

My concrete bin with a galvanized cover. Holds two tons right outside door. Was cheaper than building a pressure treated one. My neighbors thought it was a bomb shelter or something.

No I think it will out last everyone on this forum WoW nice did you put drain holes in the bottom or the bottom sides
you will need somewhere for the water to go the coal will be wet and if it can't drain it will freez up soild in that
outside cooler Oh forget it it looks like you have a dirt floor and the wood slates on the bottom of the door is open :oops:

Concrete floor with a couple of drain holes to the rear. I guess it will be a selling point when I decide to move out the this wonderful state.

heck, if you ever decide to not burn coal, you could probably make that one heck of a bar-b-q pit toothy but I love the whole setup... even the shroud of turin look on the under side :doh: seriously clean and neat setup.

Hi All!
I just hooked up a Harman Mark III in the lower level(walkout basement). I did a google search and found this thread. The information here is excellent. I couldn't believe all the pics posted of coal bins....what a help! I've been burning wood since 1990 and I was getting tired of getting up at five a.m. :( to stoke it on really coldnights, and humping :cry: the wood up a flight of stairs. Now with the Harman Mark III in the lower level, I should only have to deal with it once a day compared to loading the woodstove every 4-5 hours, and no more steps. :D Thanks again for all the pics, now I have lots of ideas now on how to build my coal bin! :D

I started burning coal in 2005.I use this reusable storage system. in the past I have had 4 of these stored in the garage next to the boiler. this year I only have 2, Too much other junk to keep under cover this year I have 16 stored outside with tarps tied around them. I use the outside totes up until we have heavy snow, then I will use out of the totes inside. when there empty they will be folded and stored away for next year.
