Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

It probably would but they split easy enough with the tools I got I wouldn't want to pick up some of those pieces to put on a splitter. And it's sub-bitsparkym wrote:Would a hydraulic wood splitter work on these, They are protected with a pressure relief valve, so it would split or stop when it reached the pressure limit. What type of coal is this?
