From the video it looks like it works quite well. Nicely done!

Maybe a fool question but how do you bring the coal/ant. to the stove? Some have a sort of 45* tube, is it an automated feeder???
Is there a special reason to have an ouside coal bin? Is it for a safer fire proof location?

AA130 is auger feed from the coal bin. My K-6 I have to haul buckets a few feet to the hopper.

I need an outside bin because I don't have room for 24 tons inside :lol:

Yea, the bucket takes a beating. Its been used for firewood, dirt, gravel, rocks, railroad ties, scrap steel, snow, sand, tires, just to name a few. It's to the point it needs to be sanded and painted but that is a project down the list a little.

I maintain the fluids carefully. Paint just makes the tractor look pretty.

This is my bin in the barn. I've yet to cut the access door for delivery as the truck guy hasn't phoned back yet, but it will be on the right side wall in between those far two stringers. The bin is 4'x4'x10' plus the spill over area in the front up to the board is another 6'x4'. It's a backwards L shape. Should hold 5 tons I'm thinking.

That much coal produces a lot of forces that need to be considered. I can't tell from the pics what may have been done to reinforce the outside corners, or to establish a "tie rod" between the front and back faces to prevent excessive bowing. Also, you might consider sheathing the inside of the studs, so the weight of the coal is pushing the sheathing into the studs and is not borne entirely by a small number of nail or screw heads.

It looks great, and I hope it works well for you.

We have 2, 2X6 that run from front to back in middle with a 2x4 in between to keep the "bellie" area from bowing. Now the length we used 2 4X6 on top to run across, should work ;) Didnt get a pic on the inside once it was done sorry guys.

The 4x4x10 = 4 tons Your overspill if it is also 6x410' will hold another 6 tons

Here's my secondary bin (1.7 T) that I built to be moved into the woods to spend the summer with my hillbilly cart/bin (3 -3.5 T).
    1/2" PT ply
    2x4 framing 16" OC
    1/2" PT ply floor on 4x4 12" OC
The new bin didn't get moved this year - stocked up in the spring. Between the two there's about 4.7-5.2 ton right outside my garage pedestrian door. Thought this post might mix up the conversation a little this time of year :)

Clam-shelled the top to minimize spillage when loading with my little scoop. Scoop just clears.

Ash gets dumped, buckets get filled right on the concrete pad. The wind blows any dust in the direction the picture was taken from so it rarely goes back into the garage.

My bin empty and full! 5.08 tons of Blaschak nut. Great feeling. Vig II, that's nice job on the coal bin. Good build and nice design. The clamshell doors are just the way I built my cellar bulkhead doors (3/4" marine ply) except that I added a strip of that thick foam rubber they use under garage doors for a good seal.

Anthony, super looking job on your bin too! Nice to have the "Pop's" help. Looks top shelf. Sheesh it's even sides and roofed! :)

Berner, The overspill area worked out well. I should add one more board to get the "dam" a little higher. Say 16" or 20" versus the 8" is is now. Then I could surely get more in. As is I could have fit another ton easily. I really just wanted to see what 5 ton looked like in there and more importently, how the floor held up to the weight. After all it's just an old horse stall.

Here is my indoor coal bin. It holds 8 ton. I am brand new to burning coal so be kind if I screwed something up...
I've also included pictures of the delivery. It was a big job. There is only one way into the loading area. Earth work was required, unfortunately, I now have a large landscaping project to look forward to... :annoyed:
