Hi everyone, I made my second trip ever to the UAE Harmony mine in Mt. Carmel today. I got 2.5 ton of nut coal (should have got more). Once again no problems - pull on scale and weigh, got loaded with a skid loader, weigh again and thats it. The nut coal I got is very clean and equally sized, it is a little on the dull side and not overly shiny. I made a small fire tonight like several other nights this season and I have already noticed at least a 50 degree temperature increase over the leftovers I bought last year to get me through the season! It once again seems like very good quality coal!

Very nice!!! I'm planning my 2nd ever trip to UAE Harmony this coming Saturday!!

EDIT : Has anyone noticed that UAE's coal seems to be sized closer to the published specs for Nut coal? I have found that Superior and Blaschak Nut sized coal is sized *way* too big.

YOU cannot break coal way too big! You must by law keep it within a certain spectrum, some break at the lower end of the spectrum and some at the larger end of it.

The Harmony Pea that I'm burning this season appears to me to be a bit on the larger side vs. the Blaschak Pea that I burned last season.

Nice stack on that sweet rig there. 8-)

I'm going to have to look into boxing off a section of my car hauler, so I can use it the same way in the future. :idea:
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ...Such laws make things worse
for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man."

Has Harmony ever published analytical spec results for their coal?

My second trip was today.

I like your trailer. Seems to be much more efficient and better riding that putting it in the back of a dump.

Nice looking truck! By the looks of that stack i'd say it runs on coal too :)
