I have 3; capacities are 5 tons, 7 tons and 8 tons. Now that I've worked out indoor storage, I'll probably sell 2 and keep 1 for the loading operation.
I got these (plus 2 others already sold) from Craigslist and eBay. If you're interested in any of mine, please let me know. Depending upon where you are, I might be able to work out something reasonable for delivery.

As you can see I'm just south and west of Schenectady myself. I get my coal in Cobleskill or Berne which aren't too far from you. There is at least one coal dealer in Albany as well. A couple of the guys up this way have bought a trailer load in the past and then split it up. This is the cheapest way to go if you can swing it.HanSoSlow wrote:I have a truck, but I'm looking at 5 ton as well (I'm guessing) since I burn 6 cord of wood per year.
I was thinking about building a bin outside and filling buckets or something that would make it easy to shovel out of (tupperware bin or something like that).
I'm just outside Albany NY.
