Oops I think I got to big of chunks

PostBy: Stngllhm On: Tue Jan 01, 2013 11:35 am

So when I went to get more coal I told them the last yard the lump was too small and I ended up with a lot of shake so I told them I wanted bigger pieces maybe I shouldn't have said that. Btw that's a 24 inch level for size comparison. And that's not the biggest piece

Haha dude that is so awesome ! I'm sorry but I laughed so hard when I read this . It should split pretty easy. Are you stuck with it? What did you say to the guy when it brought it?

Between these two tools it seems like I will be able to break it down easy enough the one is a slide hammer splitting maul and the air chisel works once you get them broke down alittle harbor freight is a great store.

Are the pieces real hard like anthracite or do they break up pretty quickly with a single smack of the maul ?
How long do you think it will take to break up the entire load and how many tons is the load ?
How does it compare to splitting wood ?


Sorry for all the questions but I'm not familiar with bit coal.

As long as it burns well, I'd just have at it and smack it into what you want. Nice big chunks is best with that type fuel.

Would a hydraulic wood splitter work on these, They are protected with a pressure relief valve, so it would split or stop when it reached the pressure limit. What type of coal is this? :chop:
