What you can do is knock the corners off on the inside so it has like a funnel shape. That's inside the house.



Problem is, the cinder block I'm knocking out is about 6 inches below ground level. I'm building a 16" x 16" x 16" 3 sided box to go up against the wall. Inside the box will be a slanted chute with aluminum that will go into the hole I will knock out. I built the box and chute today, i juste have to put some aluminum sheeting on the chute yet and I'll take a photo. I'm going to make a hinged lid for the box with some weather stripping to try and keep all the bugs and spiders out (to please my wife, who, as we all know is the true boss).

I'm also going to keep the chute level in length with the inside wall so that I can mount a door on the inside as well with some weather striping foam.

Does this sound reasonable? Is a 16" wide chute into the basement wide enough? I have about a 30 degree angle on the chute and the chute itself is only about 20" long. I also have the top of the chute setting down inside the box by about 6 or 8 inches. I'll try to post some pics tomorrow.

The width of cinderblock. :idea: Having said that if you can't make something that big the dealer should have smaller chutes. I had a short chute that went down too about 5 inches that was like a funnel.

If it's underground the the pvc pipe might not be a bad idea. Be a lot easier to seal off.

Good point, an opening below grade can be troublesome.

Hey Guys,
This is my first post. I usally speak through CoalBerner(JC). I use those plastic totes with the metal cage around it for my coal bin. I have a couple of them. Some with the tops cut off and some not. I get my coal from Superior in my pickup and load it in the totes with a corn-vac and a shop vac. It takes a while but I have a messed up back. I also put one of the totes with the top cut off on my 4 x 8 trailer and go to the breaker and get it filled. They hold about 1900 lbs. to 2000 lbs. Then I just double up a vinyl tarp to keep it dry and scoop it out with a cut out laundry detergent bottle. When it gets too low I either use the corn-vac or climb in with a small ladder. They work great and last forever and are CHEAP! If anyone is interested, corn-vac has some good things on their website including plans for a bin with a trap door (BLAST GATE). Also the totes have a valve in the bottom where you can screw in a pvc tee and drill a hole in the end cap to put an auger bit through to fill your buckets. Sorry for the lengthy post and thanks to all for their knowledge and ideas.
