My name is Freetown Fred.I'm from Freetown,NY,imagine that,we are 1/2 way between Binghamton & Syracuse off Rt. 81.I got sick of blocking & splitting firewood after 50 yrs.I picked up an old Hitzer 50-93 last yr.rebuilt it & am in the process of learning how to use it.Between this website & the willingness of Dean at Hitzer to offer suggestions on how to do that,I think I'm doing OK.This stove is much like an old Shovelhead.It's got a combination & we're gaining on it.Thank you all for your help.

That's universal,it's good that God gave us the ability to sort through & use what's pertinent to our personal circumstances--but,I hear what you're saying!

COOL!!! Not only are you a fellow Hitzer user, but you have an old tracor! Any others? Most of mine are green but I do have a Allis "U" to go with them, among other colored tractors.

My name is Chris and would like to say this is a great site,I've learned so much on how to burn coal.I am a rookie & just started to use coal this year.So many people told me how dangerous coal was" you can blow yourself up". So I did some research and found this forum ,all summer long I kept coming here reading all I could and finally in early fall decided to install my Waterford Coal stove that had been sitting around by house for ten years collecting dust.When I purchased my house 10 yrs. ago it had the stove hooked up. I took it out because of lack of knowledge and everyone telling me I was going to blow the house up.Wow can't believe I suffered for 10 yrs. freezing every winter. Thanks again to all the people that post here. By the way it's been a toasty winter with low utility bills.

Hi Chris, welcome to the coal forum. Whereabouts do you live in Hunterdon County? I've lived here all my life and lived in many of the towns here.
Heres a good link to see how many of us burn coal in NJ.

There should be alot of us Jerseyites out there
