Hi all,

Getting ready to by coal.
I am looking for some names of trucking companies in Northeast PA, that might deliver about 10 tons in a tri-axle, to MA.
Anyone have any recommendations on certain companies? Or maybe I should start dialing heavy truck haulers in yellow pages?
I do have a quote on a full 22ton load, but that's a whopping load. Probably too big for my ranch on a half acre. :roll:
(If I could get the pile down and covered, I'd be tempted.)

Brian, I was talking to a guy that had 23 ton brought up to Livonia two weeks ago. He is going to give me his phone number. When I get it, I will PM you. The driver brought up coal and took back grain from Avon.

Coal is amazingly clean.. if it is washed when loaded, there is only a very thin layer of scattered fines on the floor of the dump box... a broom or a hose will clean it right up... cleans off better than sand/aggregate...

After dumping my trailer of 4 tons of Superior pea coal (washed while being loaded)I got about a cup of fines after brooming. Not a problem at all. The next rain washed it.

Hello, Looking for a supplier of bagged buckwheat in the central Pa. area. I live 20 miles south of State College and I am looking for a supplier where I can pick up what I need. Also, this is my first year of burning coal in my Keystoker oil/coal boiler. Does anyone have any idea how many tons I will need?
Thank you

I just took delivery of my first load of coal. It came in a very new aluminum body. I was amazed by how clean it emptied out. No need to wash or sweep it. After he got done dumping it you could have used the floor of that dump as a mirror.

I found bagged coal at Penn for 190 a ton. I was wondering if anyone here was quoted a better price? Also are there any breakers that sell bagged coal? I've gotten good prices for loose 130-140 a ton but I really would rather have it bagged up. It is easier to store and handle.

Someone mentioned Hudson had bagged but the last time I was there they didn't so that was news to me. If they are bagging it themselves it might be at a decent price but I really doubt it.

570-655-4151 , they are not open today.

Just bought my first coal stove and am looking for local coal sources and prices. I can pick up bagged or I could build a bin for bulk delivery, any ideas? I figure I will burn approx. 3 tons this winter. On the other hand I've been told that if I pick up bulk in the Scranton area it's running $130/ton but I would need to rent a dump truck and put $5/gal diesel in it. I have a CDL so I can drive the truck myself but I'm not sure by the time I rent a truck and fuel it I would save anything.

Well I guess it depends on what price it is there. If you can only get bagged its at least double the $130. If it's bulk I'd have to guess around $230+ . If you make the trip might as well fill it up to the max GVW.
