TIP, paint the inside of the gravity wagon with slip paint. It makes life easier. I have the extension to make it 8 tons. Boy is that heavy to move around.

With that many stoves, either go big, or don't go at all ! :D

Some posters are bigger but OK, I will bite.

I guess I am getting the third degree about stove layout --- well for my coal brothers I will oblige...

Main house 7000 badly insulated sq ft. LL AA180 in the basement. Power goes out a quick change to a Jotul 507 so everything runs with no electricity (don't ask). RC Garnet #48 In the back room where we live in the winter. Wings Best ( or the flavor of the day) front upstairs. Separate building 5000 sq ft top floor only heated. Keystoker 90,000btu that needs a little help. Barn appt DVC (Piece of crap). Barn heat - LL Pocono 110K. Other stoves for fun and mixing.

Winter use 12 -20tons. Go big with the black rocks or go bankrupt.

Nothing to write home about but I had to set up a little bin for 5 ton of buck. Rob has given me ideas that I need to try out this winter. Big blocks, palettes and cheap plywood. Justin is coming Monday.

I think the regular sized tote (275 gall) is just over 1 ton of anthracite.

Anthracite is about 40 cu ft per ton (your mileage may vary but not by that much). Hmm, what am I missing? OK, now I am reading your old posts. So you have added 2 totes to your 3 to 3.5 ton bin, yes? So I guess you are close.

and another thing .. in this video is the evidence of a poster (probably) picking up Lehigh with a tote in the back of his truck (17 secs in) ... sneaky ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cw48S6aF6l8

This was recorded by Clinton videos and they say it was not a tote just a solar reflection. The guy in the blue truck committed suicide later by burying his head in a pile of anthracite. Poster Lehighanthracite commented... it's not our fault that people around us just seem to die. As this is the 22nd person who has committed suicide this way, the FBI was called in. 126 agents poured over the evidence for 6 months and could find no evidence of wrong doing.

Just one more pic to keep the coalies amused. Justin just dropped off 5.35tons of buck into my 12x12 bin. If you are considering bin size this works out perfectly. A nice tight dump and run and bingo.
