That would be a smart practice. I'll bet those huge dump trucks probably hold 8 gallons of oil in the crankcase! :lol: :o Not to mention hydraulic oil & gear lube -- they'd have plenty.

It handled it o.k. We had 1340 lbs. in the back. I am used to carrying that much but this time I had an extra 175+ lbs in the truck. That was good because Chris was a very good co-pilot and worth the extra weight. The only thing I was not counting on was that Short Bus won the last post wins and now I will gladly give him a bucket of coal for his victory. :lol: also I will with great pleasure give the winner some Balut. If you don't know what that is ask New Hope Engineer, Mark!

They only heat a couple of small rooms. Office, bathroom and the break room. Proabably less than 500 sq ft.

I know this thread is old but does anyone know the phone number for Hudson? I can't seem to find it.

Im guessing this is the yard in pittston. Anyone know the price per ton? Yeah im that guy who didnt fill the bin. Made a rather large bin, but couldnt quite commit to filling it until I had the first coal fire established. Wanted to keep the investment low as could until I could justify.
