Approximately 4-1/2 tons of chestnut in the cellar and ready for winter. I get these gaylord boxes from my employer. Plastic resin comes in them. The plastic pallets were also discarded by the company because they had cracked or broken feet. I just saw off the broken foot flush, and screw on a block of 4x4 in its place.

For you guys that built the outdoor box type bins, how did you allow for drainage? Meaning if your coal was wet, how did you allow the water to get out of the bin? I am not seeing any type of drains or anything on these.

I drilled several 1/4" holes thru the bottom. It works.

Still finishing mine up, pics to follow. I used 1x6's for the floor. My coal comes pretty wet, might be slow but should drain between the boards. The bin is 6" above the ground on block.

I recently completed a nice 8 ton bin. Just about done filling it up. There is no bottom to it. It is basically just a simple box, roughly 10x10, made out of old growth dimensional 2x4s, tied together with PT deck planks. Each side has 4 coats of paint on it. The four sides are connected to each other with 4 pieces of 6x8 PT lumber in each corner, and the whole thing just sits right on the ground. I have not taken the time to tarp it yet or build a roof, so the rain has been flowing through there for at least 2 months or so. It works great! I also put slats in the front so I can get the coal out. :-)

Almost finished with my coal bin. 8X8 footprint with 4' walls. Subtracting for the walls interior dimensions are 7' 3.5"X7' 3.5"X4'. I calculated 212 cu.ft.
I'm hoping I can get 6 tons of rice coal in there but am thinking probably closer to 5.
I need to add some wood siding panels to make it look nice for the wife!

Nice bin! Why not just run the auger right in to the bin? :confused:

It is easier to shovel out a drum and move it out of the way to get to the auger or tube If it needs replacing or fixed
then it is to shovel 26 tons out of the way to get to the Auger or tube. You could Just stick the durm inside the bin
and Just shovel coal into it when it gets low move it in before you fill the bin up . ;)

Vandalay, Good looking bin for th emost part, but if those four steel clips on each corner are all that's holding it I fear that it won't hold together. You need some stout steel straps bent around each corner and perhaps 3/8" by 4" lag screws ro hold them. Or, better yet, a steel band all the way around the top. If those brackets are all there is, you are asking four screws, each with 150-200 pounds of strength, to hold tons of pressure.
