This year, I put in a Hitzer 82FA and used the spot under the house to keep my wood, which I planned on burning mostly. As there was a misunderstanding when I priced out the stove from our dealer (really nice husband/wife business but he just recently passed away and she is kinda new to running things), she gave me 1/4 ton of nut coal to try but it was to come in bulk. I didn't want to bag it myself there so I took one of our feed bins in the back of my pickup and had them fill it there. When I got home, I unloaded it with our skidsteer and forks, onto my front porch. If it works out well, I will do something different next year. Like I said, she gave me a 1/4 ton but I had them fill it, and found it holds about 1650 pounds.
HEYYYYYYY! Thats a nice coal bin! Does the top open on hinges? Really nice! Looks good, too.
