Agway, Oakland MD - $115.00/ton dumped in your truck or trailer from the Lower Pittsburgh Seam is what I am told. I have to burn Oak with it to get it to burn completely to ash and it has a lot of fines in it.

Picked up a couple ton of run of mine from Grove City PA. $70/ton
Rusnak 724-967-5589 says open Saturdays 9-3 and appointment.
105 Old School Rd Grove City PA
Had a steady stream of people when I was there couple weeks ago.
Good mix of large lump to fines. Did find a couple rocks in it. I don't have much experience with Bit but seems to burn pretty good in my OWB. Does put off a ton of heavy smoke at first. Burns down pretty complete after arranging the coals a couple times.

Unfortunately I live near Boston, Mass & unless I was to tow a trailer to Penn to get it at a dealer or from the mine it has to be bought in bags on a pallet or a large sack wrapped & strapped to a pallet. I could buy a 20-25 ton load to cut costs but I live on a small size piece of property. A 950 mile R/T to Clearfield, Penn last summer to get one ton and haul it back cost $600. Still looking for & working on solutions, any help would be appreciated.

Not to change the subject, but I live in North Dakota near the lignite coal fields. It is used extensively in the coal fired power plants. It's shipped by the train loads, so was wondering if anyone has used it. I can buy stoker coal it's about 60 miles one way.
How much should one expect to pay.

They have prices on their website and its cheap. I think they give BTU ratings too. You can get it any size you want it I think. I do have a local selling it here now but at a higher price of course. There have been a few members here from North and South dakota and i think? Canada that use it.

Its low in BTU compared to Anthracite but once you get the price you can compare it to your other heat choices with those BTU for cost savings. theres a calculator on this website https://coalpail.com/fuel-comparison-calculator-home-heating

You can change figures around for comparison.

I'm looking here in Southern WV. I feel like I shouldn't have to work this hard to find usable coal around here...

At the present time, Bramhi Coal, Wellston, Ohio has #6 Bit coal on hand. They have lump, stoker, and what appeared to be 3" -4", I guess you would call stove coal. There was also a pile of finer, off to the side, but was nice and clean. Here is a link, for their information.https://www.mapquest.com/us/ohio/bramhi-inc-353161113 They don't open until 9:00 a.m.,and believe they close at 4:00 p.m.

I called Bramhi coal this am and they said they had Ohio lump coal for 100.00 a ton. They also have Kentucky coal for 120.00 a ton as well. That Kentucky coal they have got is really good coal. I will be disappointed if they do not keep getting Kentucky coal.
How does the #6 coal burn?

How does the #6 coal burn?
I've only done two test burns with the 6 coal, but so far pleased on how it burns. I start with a good bed of wood coals, then add the coal. I put 4 small lumps the size of 5 lb.bags of sugar, along with some finer pieces to help get them going. I got stove temps of 500º-525º, with upper flue temps of 300+º just idling along, for a steady 4 hour burn, before shutting it down for the evening, in the shop stove. Easily kept the shop at a comfy 68º that day. Looked the next day day approx. 10:00 a.m., and still pieces plenty big enough to add some wood, and get it going again. Wasn't working in the shop for a few days, so just let it burn out.

Built another fire today. Shook it down, before starting, and was pleased to see mostly ash, with a few pieces approx. 3"-4" left, that had not completely burned, with bottom damper completely closed. So far, I'm loving it.
