Yes it will, forum member Greg White who lives about 40 miles from me burns Bituminous in his SF150 Harman.. It has to be tended every few hours, like most Bituminous hand feed fires, but it will burn the coal well..

There are several techniques that Greg and I have tried and used to mitigate the issues with burning Bitum. coal in a large hand feed stoves.. most of these issues are the result of the swelling and bridging of Bitum. coal.
