sorry to ask but is this the thread for watching prices now that we're in '09 ?

Can I ask also where I could source coal in northeastern Mass ?
I would be looking for bagged but would settle for bulk dumped in the driveway.

Thx
John

Hi,
I recently had a Harman DVC-500 Direct Vent Coal Stoker installed. I got Blackshak Coal, bagged, at $340 a ton in Fairfield NJ. I live in Morris County NJ and a I am looking for cheaper alternatives. Since I do not have a coal bin, I would need bagged coal only. I would prefer delivery but I can pick up a ton at a time. I live about 45 minutes from Pennsylvania. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.

Price for rice coal on December 2, 2008 from Millcreek Coal in Lancaster, PA was $212/ton picked up at their location.

For those of you without coal bins, a simple, low cost storage method is to use 35 gallon trash cans.
Each can holds about 225 to 250 pounds, depending on moisture content. One ton ususally fits in 8 or 9 cans.
I store the cans along the back wall of my garage and park my car up against them. I can easily move these
by myself with a cheap hand truck (two wheeled) from Harbor Freight.

I also use 55 gallon poly drums that have their tops cut out. I find these around here for $5 to $20 each,
depending on how badly the company wants rid of them. A 55 gallon drum holds more than 400 pounds of
rice coal. I can move these myself with the same cart mentioned above but I ususally need help tipping
the drum back on the cart until I get it balanced.

When I can locate the Rice Coal that I need here in Western Massachusetts...I can buy it for $6.59 a bag if I buy 60 bags at a time from the hardware store, but I still have to pick it up. That makes it $329.50 per ton and the good news it is good coal being Blaschak coal. There is a Farmer supply that is supposed to get it to me for $290-$300 a ton Bulk but since I placed the order in late October they have yet to come through for me and they are the only other supplier in the area. I have a 2 ton bin waiting for the drop but nothing yet. So, I originally bought a 60 bag load from the hardware store and am down to about 20 or so now. So, bring on the cold... well, for another 18-22 days anyway! Anybody know where I can get some more rice coal? Hmmmmmmm :)

Here in Rhode Island I can get pea and nut for just under $290 per ton delivered. $30 less per ton if I pick it up. Bagged is just under $300 for pick up.

I mostly run wood, but I ran out and unless it's deadwood that I cut/split/stacked out of the rain for the whole summer, it's to wet to burn (unless I clean my chimney every week) I had a hell of a time burning coal until I found this forum. Now it's been running for 1 week straight!

Anyway, local dealer has coal from Haggan that I been buying for $7.50 per 50 lb bag, and I am burning 1 bag per day. Now that the cold snap is over I am going to switch back to the heat pump tomorrow. (he only has Nut, everyone here says Stove is what I want for my Jenson 24)

Anyway, Local guy wants $230.00 ton for Nut. (Honeybrook). A little further away (New Holland) I can get nut for $190 ton for something called majeto. Nobody down here seems to have stove coal.

I am looking to buy 1 or 2 tons , and I got a dump trailer. Since I live 1 hour south of "where coal comes from" I would be willing to drive to pick it up (as long as I don't need to drive back a long snow covered dirt road since I only got a 2wd 3500 truck).

Any of you guys got a place to suggest? I am 1 hour south of Cabelas, and we make as many trips up that way just so we can stop at the restaurant named smokey bones in Reading :)

Since I don't have a bin, I might wait until spring to build it, Is coal cheaper in the summer?

Holy Canolies
I stopped to get some coal on the way home tonight and the price at the Agway jumped $1.50 per bag
Ton went from $313 to $360 I asked why the jump she said that's the price
Just got fuel oil today @2.17 / gal I told the lady behind the counter at her prices oil was cheaper she said oh well

BTW at this point in the season we would have had our 3rd fill at 170+ gal per fill
1st fill in 2 months and he squeezed 150 gal

I guess I gotta get coal in the spring for next season.

Anybody want to truck to central MA

Here in western New York I can still get coal for $234/ton plus delivery. I've been running my KA-6 since the beginning of October and I still have close to a ton and a half left out of the original 4 tons I bought back in September. I haven't changed a thing that I am doing except maybe keeping the thermostat up a degree or two warmer than in the past since I went to coal. Should have seen the look on the face of the propane delivery guy when he stopped to fill my tank and it hadn't changed since the last time he was there in September. I'm loving every minute of it. :up:

I was told the NEW price of bulk pickup rice for 2008-2009 was 245/ton. This was over the summer.

I just paid $270 for 1 ton of bulk rice!!!

Next year I will be trucking it in!!



Oops, I rechecked the receipt. I paid $260/ton. I got a little more then a ton so the bill was $270. Still $15 more then I was expecting. I don't like suprises....
