Showed up today with 2 tons, looked at the bin and said "no problem!". 30 minutes later of jockeying & blocking the truck around to get the box to go up straight just didn't have enough angle to get it into the bin. Even he was suprised - truck sure looked level but soon as the bed went up it tilted a few degrees to the low side. Being the first load off didn't help either, all that weight in the box.

So now I've got 2 tons of nut/pea mix on the front lawn :oops:

Nice evenly sized stuff tho, very clean.

Well if he had a real High Lift Coal truck instead of a Drump Truck He would of not had any problem chuting the coal in
He does not have a Auger Feed on that Truck .

Old-timer who hasn't said 4 words to me in the 4 years I've been here came out and started going on and on about the "old days with coal".

I think most people here don't know what the pile of black rocks in my front yard is.
