Hi guys need some help on witch coal breaker to go with. Prices are soaring and I wanna get at the lowest I can.
I was given a price from three breakers.
Lehigh oiled 3 ton rice delivered 435 a ton.
Blaschack oiled 385 a ton oiled delivered or
Mallard/ Mt Carmel for 355 a ton oiled .

I burned Blaschack last year and I thought it had a lot of ash for some reason.
Never burned Lehigh before but I hear it’s the best out there. And Mt Carmel never heard of them.
I’d like to try Lehigh but I’ve been told therecoal is dirty and I won’t like it .
So if you fellas could give me some guidance on what you think before I order 4 ton of rice.
Thanks everyone……

Hello coalman75, I have been burning Lehigh for 6 years now, from rice, buck, and pea and I personally think the rice was pretty clean compared to the larger stuff. I'll say it has never been an issue burning however. Another thing to note is I have never burned the oiled stuff so not sure how that is?
