The Lehigh is really nice stuff, considering the limited amount of time I have had it. That said, I can already tell the ash is much less. I had bought several hundred pounds of 'Premium Coal' from a friend who had a delivery. Man!, was I ever carrying out ash tubs. But this Lehigh is like a reverse of that. Only two tubs since I fired the Lehigh. I will take a picture of the next tub.
And the heat load comes up very fast. We had a few cold days here in Connecticut early on and I was surprised how fast the TT was satisfied. Now that it is warmed up it seems to be idling fine even though I have yet to get my timer installed so the Axeman is maintaining a fire fine without calls for heat. It went off on a call for hot water but that was it. Sometimes, when I remember (which is seldom), I bump up the TT for a couple minutes to fire her but it generally manages on its own. Especially comforting after 16+ hour work days. Gotta love the Axe!!!!
I am still in the process of getting 12 ton in the basement. With Hurricane Sandy I am working double shifts and can't get stuff done. Just hope my tarps hold till it's through with blowing.
