The outside coal bin is now has 2/3 full with buckwheat, what a comfortable feeling knowing that is out there ready to provide warmth! :onfire: :)

I feel so inadequate with my wimpy little coal bin that might hold a ton on a good day.....

I live in New York State near PA border (Elmira) and I've tried to buy Blaschak coal by the bag and can only get it from a dealer - they won't sell retail. Currently $5.39 per 40 Lb bag, or $269 per ton. Ran out of my main bagged supply last year and burned 1/2 ton of that coal - ashes were much finer from the Blaschak but not sure if the yield was the same as the other Anthracite coal I burned.
Any place that delivers this by the bag?
Thanks!

These hold 3300# ,a liitle to large . I think I would try the 1 ton bags next time . They are tall when fully extended. My tractor loader arms were almost fully extended when carrying them . But otherwise worked well . The guys at the coal yard loved them they have never seen them before . Dave

There are a couple of eBay auctions right now for these type of bags, around $5, 1500 lb or 1 ton.

Currently I'm using a plastic tub that fits in the back of my station wagon. I fill it at a local landscaper 2-3 X a week. There is a steel bin in the garage that measures 35 X 33 X 83 inches. It has coal residue, and I'm thinking I should clean up a little so I can refill it.

Questions then:
How much coal should I order delivered?
They offer a "2 man or wheelbarrow" delivery for $63. Do you think that means they'll haul it to the back of the garage, around the 1/2 wall that's there (looks like an unfinished conversion) and up into the bin?

thanks

Is that little wall up off the floor? I'm guessing that the coal flows under it to where you can scoop it out?

looks nice

No it's not off the floor. I added that second removable wall, so that once I used the coal between it and the door I would be able to fill my bucks with the door closed. I am trying to keep some of the dust down, I will be able to go inside my bin and close the door behind me while I shovel it into 5 gal buckets.

Here's my coal bin with my "new" antique coal shovel. Bin holds 4 tons. It's right next to my hopper so it's easy to fill it 250 lbs. at a time. All but two guillitine boards removed now.

The coal comes out under the bottom board into an area that I can use a shovel in. This bin holds 4 ton of rice coal. I back my pickup up to the basement window (not visible in picture) and shovel it in.



Nice design!
