What does that brown bottle have to do with a coal bin, :confused: Does it help the coal slide easier?

Hi guys. Here's some pics of what I came up with after much thought and looking for ideas. Currently holding 3 ton. Will hold 5 but I want to see how much I use the first year plus I want to add plywood to the inside next year even though its not bowing at all. Currently 7/16 osb screwed every 4 inches and anchored to the wall and floor with 3/16 tapcons.

I put a bead of silicone all around the bottom 2x4 and drilled 3 holes through the slab for drainage. I used an 8" driveway culvert pipe, 45 elbow and cap. The chute door works perfectly. When the coal drops below the chute, I'll open the door and shovel the rest. Thanks to all for the ideas and information!

this is the funnel I made to get the coal into the basement bin. I plan to fabricate one out of stainless next year.

Thanks! I really apprecieate all the pics and ideas I got from this forum.

My original plan was to install a masonry bin in the bank right outside the basement door and run an auger through the wall so the coal would dump right into the hopper. Still might do that someday but for now this will do. Needed to get it done before I get busy in the fall.

Here's mine with apx 6.4 tons of rice in place. 88" x 88", comes up 48" or so.

For 20 yrs, I would tape around the door with shipping tape when shoveling bituminous coal in, and still get some dust around the hinges and such. This anth was three loads on my trailer, and one of the loads was shoveled in without a door even on the bin room. Still no dust [rice was just a tad moist]. :D

Btw, I installed the pulley on the auger [pics on page 39], and I can fill a 5 gallon bucket in about 1 minute turning the pulley by hand. I hope to get the auger powered up this week. Have to find a pulley for the somewhat uncommon 7/8" output shaft on gear box [limited selection of 7/8" bore pulleys in stock locally].

Almost finished with my new bin, closer to the driveway in the basement with a new access window, and directly across (3') from my stove. just have to add the removable slats for the door. It's about 4' x 11' x 5' tall, should hold around 5-5.5 ton, usually a dump load is around 4.5-5 ton. should work. Pics to follow...

We build custom bins for our customers, specific to their tonnage requirements for the year, and accessibility.

Just completed a bin that was delivered yesterday. Holds 3 ton of Nut. Half doors make it easy to open, scoop a bucket full, and close. Built to spec for our truck, so we can back right up to the bin and dump, wihout having to chute/auger the coal off. Makes it much easier for us, and saves our customers money in the long run.

Have also done custom sheds, and basement boxes similar to some posted here.

It is not pretty, but there is 24.56 tons of Harmony Nut in there!!

Image

A 40x60 foot tarp goes all the way under and then back over the top to cover everything up good!! 3400 pound concrete retaining wall blocks keep it where it belongs on this side.

I expect to keep a weeks worth in 5 gallon buckets in the mud room by the stove and I have 2 tons in bags in there for when I don't feel like carrying in any from outside so I should be good to go for at lest a couple of years!!

Well, I did get two ton of coal in my bin with a couple inch's to spare. Here is a before and after pic. One problem though. When filling it the inside walls got all black. (LOL) I painted Dryloc inside and my wife is going to white wash the outside.

I just (almost) finished my indoor bin just need a top for the fan. It holds 260# of coal ,took 3hrs to build,and $50.00 + the fan cover(not sure what it will be?) I just fill it with a 5gal buckets or bags so, I hope it helps with the black dust, just not sure how long the filter will last?I like the wagon Idea but it would not fit through my narrow a-- doors so this is what I came up with.The next will be the outdoor bin, maybe this winter or next spring.
