How do you move it around?

I'm trying to make it easier, at one point I'll finally figure it out.

Shooting the remainder of the coal down my half-assed aluminum siding chute (hey it works!), My bin only holds 1 ton and I bought 2.

Gonna tear it down next year and build an outdoor coal bin. Just have to figure out where to put all the *censored* that's in it first.

You can come over and dismantle it if you want it! :idea:

I was really thinking of building an outdoor bin & going bulk this year, but you don't really save that much in SE Mass going to bulk. Some dealers don't even sell bulk anymore. Just bagged. (usually Reading :down: )

If you look closley, there is a chute between the back of the truck and the house in the window opening. It's made out of OSB but the angle is extreme and the rice coal flows right in the bin. It takes about 30 minutes to unload a 2 ton load.

For the most part I use 5 gallon buckets. I currently have 9 tons of coal on the property. A little over 3 tons is downstairs in the basement next to the Warm Morning Coal Stove in 158 5 gallon buckets. The rest is in smaller 500 pound wooden coal bins that I built that are outside in my back yard. Wherever I gather coal from I shovel it into my 5 gallon buckets, haul it back in my van, and then dump it into the bins and/or take the full buckets directly downstairs into the basement. By the way, this Friday I hope to finish a new outside bin which should hold about 3 tons, and then I will consolidate some of the smaller 500 pound bins.
