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.

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.
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.
