The price I got was $385/ton, I think that's high. I found a place in central Ct about an hour and a half from me for $295/ton bagged.
I think you misheard or someone was answering the phone that wasn't a regular. It's $285/ton regardless of what size. I got my delivery just after Thanksgiving. $40 for delivery.

And whereabouts is "Bridgeton"? I know we have a lot of little towns, but I never heard that one before.

Bridgeton is northwest Burrillville, a little past Pascoag.

I need a ton of Chestnut Coal. Who has the best price? I'm in N.RI. With all the coal in this country you would think we could get a more reasonable price. Thanks

With all the oil in this country you'd think that would be cheaper too.

Not many options here. I think Cranston only goes as low as rice.

He has a Keystoker K6 heating that place so he has it on hand.

Price of Coal? Since Peoples Coal closed and what a shame! I have always bought my coal from Cranston Coal. Found them to have the best price every-time. Right now I think their at $287.00 a ton picked up.

No dealer in our area carries buck. Cranston Coal has some Rice/Buck mix in bags. My boiler didn't like it at all! Very high ash and low output. I had to pick up a couple hundred pounds before I could get to NEPA and picked up from Jeddo when I ran out of Blashak. Man that stuff made me wish for Blashak, I nearly doubled my usage and quadrupled my ashes.

What is the amount of 'Buck' you guys need? Bulk TT load? TT load of 18 pallets, 2400 lbs each? How about a 50/50 mix? You CAN get what you want, if you know who to ask. :idea: :!:
Some of us know who and what to ask.

Has anyone tried Tony Lopes at Fairhaven Coal? His coal is a very big step above the stuff I see at other dealers. He will not stock coal till ha has done the chemistry of the coal. the result is very high quality.
