Yep and if you got it at the coal breaker's down here bulk loose you would of paid 6.50 Per hundred to 7.00 per hundred
lbs 130.00 a ton to 140.00 a ton ;) also looks like a good place to put a outside coal bin with a hinge top of course and
a gelatine door on the side


Agreed but I'm pretty far away & once you add in the transportation charges vs the convenience I'm still a happy man! :D

Have you called anyone yet a member from Maine Just called Superior coal and got a Price for coal deliverd for 207.00 a
ton so I would call them Now remember that would be for 20 tons or more Read the link below

I actually just bought about 2.25 tons of bagged Blaschak coal that should last me about a winter & 1/4 but I would really like to try Superior Coal after reading so much about it here. I don't have a coal bin, but could build one pretty easily. Does anyone near SE Mass. use Superior Coal that would be willing to sell me a little to try it out? (If I like it...which I'm sure I will.....I would be looking to split a load at some point)

I just did a quick check on the UPS website and I can send you a 50lb. bag of superior nut for $28.78 UPS ground, $252.00 for next day air or if you need it today, it will be between $600.00 and $1,500.00 to arrive later today. The coal would be on me. Let me know which way you'd like to go. ;)

Thanks for the offer coalkirk but I wont be relighting the Harman until mid October or so, so there's no hurry. ( & I have a few tons of Blaschak I just bought)I actually would like to get enough to try it (Superior) for about a week (maybe 200 lbs or so) to see if it is better than Blaschak. (I burned 3 bags of "mystery" coal (unmarked bags that I got from Eastern Ice & Coal last winter) that turned out to be Reading Coal & had no problem with it until I bought a ton of the crap & had burned it for about a week. After a burning for a number of days, the Reading jammed my stove all the time. If I can find someone local that would sell me enough ZSuperior Coal for me to try it for a week, & then find a way to split a large load with someone, that's what I'd like to do.
The Blaschak is good stuff but I've read so much about Superior that I'm curious!

You would see the light like Mr Blaschak coalstove did Once you burn it you will won't more It is cheaper Per ton It is
Always Consistent in Qaulity Now it will have More ash content Then Blaschak But The BTU's Per lb will make up for that you will get the hottest fire you every had it will give you a longer burn time you will like if it was not any better I would not drive 23 miles one way to get it when I can go to blaschak 6 miles one way Blaschak ash content runs 11 to 12 % with there nut coal 13.000 to 13.100 BTU's Per lb white & Red ash Superior Nut will be 14% ash Content and will be 13.500 To 13.600 BTU's Per lb Red Ash I have been burning it since 1997 i have Burned every ones coal in a 45 mile area and by far it is the best for the heat out put and Cosistent in Qaulity My second choice would be UAE Harmony coal For it's low ash content Third would be Calvin V, Lenig more More BTU 's per lb then UAE but has more ash content then UAE But It still is not as hot as Superior Plus Calvin V Lenig Will Not Be as Consistent As The other Two and there are 40 miles one way form me all you have to do is burn it once and you will see the differents between good clean Deep mine coal & Surface mine coal like Blaschak I will say this if I could not get anyone else's Then I would buy Blaschak But until the time comes I will stick with Superior UAE or Calvin V. lenig I also will tell you this Next to member gaw I am the longest burning Superior coal member on here I started burning coal in this house since 1996 before then I took care of both
grandparents coal stoker boiler and hand fed furnace Plus three of the neighbors stoker boiler and hand fed boiler so it is not like I just started burning coal Plus half of my family members worked in the deep mines So believe me I know the differents Between good coal and bad coal and where to find the good coal there are way to many members on here to list that I either took or help to get the good coal So don't think I am giveing you a line of B.S. when comes to coal anyway when you are Ready for the good stuff let me know I will help you get the good stuff take care :)

Thanks for the offer of help with Superior Coal. I'd love to try it out for about a week & I'm sure you are right..... that I'd like it. (Then, the problem is how do I get reasonably priced loads up here in SE mass?)
Like I told Terry, if I could get a few hundred pounds (to try it out for a week) that would be great!

call them and ask for a Tri Axel load price I know a member Just called this week from Maine and got a price for 207 a
ton delivered for 24 tons you would need to order 20 or more tons before they will deliver

Since I only use maybe 2 tons per year I guess I would be looking for a bunch of people in SE mass. who would like to split a large load. If anyone is interested let me know. (I'd probably take 6-8 tons)

I see people on here asking if people want to split a large load like 20 tons or something. How would the driver do this? Dump it all in one location and then the people that chipped in all go and get it from there? Or would the driver actually dump partial loads at different locations?

Just curious :D

That would cost a lot more and would be extremely difficult to do without a partitioned dump body. I believe it would significantly impact much of the savings. That process could concievably double the truckers time and fuel costs depending on the distances and number of stops involved.

Anyone have any experience with the Harmon DVC Direct Vent 500 Coal Stoker? Looks like a great stove and I like that it doesn't need a chimney. Also seeking a source in Maine/NH for Rice coal - any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks in advance.


Think you will have better response if you move this question to the stoker thread.
