Oh ,
One more thought before I forget. Wh, see if you can get a supersack full of buck to try. I think you might like it. But I do agree with you about the large rice that fithg sells. that was nice too, and clean.

One big thing to consider is , if you can truck a large amount, fithg's breaker house will put 18 ton right on a truck, so it never is handled numerous times.

I am very pleased with the large rice,ain't no way I am fooling with a super sack for stoker coal,i usually get them to load 9-10 tons on the truck. I did get nut coal from Gale in 2 super sacks so it was separate from the loose rice on the truck.

What do supersacks weigh?

Hmmm. Dimensions? I suppose I could do three, one in the truck and two on the trailer. Got a link to said sack?

I have no link,i got the big sack from fifthg at Gale,the smaller sack came from my farmer friend who trucks the coal for me. I would say they measure about 4 foot around when full. They loaded the 2 super sacks in the front of the grain truck & filled in behind with the large rice. We unloaded the rice without tilting the bed up real far & then my neighbor used his big John Deere backhoe's front loader to lift the sacks off. I use a metal bucket to scoop out of the sacks into plastic buckets,i still need to finish emptying the smaller sack.

Gale coal and I get a straight A report card,if I do say so myself.One because Windyhill runs his efm 520 stoker hotter than Hades at 7 feed and max air all winter,which would clinker any crappy coal,and Dave1234 idles his in this shoulder season,and he got equally good result.Another A on pricing.The final A is for tolerating that unnamed guys crap without a personal visit...I have never met him before in my life and would like to keep it that way. Thanks dave1234,and Windyhill for the positive reviews.I will tell the guys in the breaker you like what they do.We are proud,knowledgeable,(and tolerant.)
Do it the hard way.It's easier.
