Purchased 5500 Kilo (12125lbs) yesterday for $222.45 Canadian including tax.
2"x2" bit. High volitiles, extremly low sulpher.
Easy to burn.

There is a federal GST (goods and services tax) 5% on damn near everything. I think grocerys, kids cloths, maybe presciptions are exempt. Some province's also have sales taxes. Alberta does not. I kinda don't mind the GST if they leave income taxes alone. At least this way your only taxed on what you spend, not what you make. Private sales, (smaller stuff), not houses etc. are not taxable. That's only cause they know they can't catch you.

This last load of coal, larger, more uniform pieces, about 2"x2" to maybe 2"x3" made huge difference in ease of burning. basicaly just fill front half to the top, wait an hour, fill rear half, come back in 8 hours. I Like IT.

Robby, which mine is that bit from? I have a friend who is a load broker, and may be able to arrange a backhaul into Ontario for me.

If my calculations are right that works out to about $37CAD/ton.
Hi Westy, I am a veteran truck driver of 22 years of experience. There is no such thing as a backhaul. If someone needs freight moved than they need to hire a truck. The word backhaul implies that someone is willing to work for a much lower paycheck than someone else. Now having said that, 37.00 a ton is an excellent price for bit, I live 50 km. north of Philadelphia, and will go in on some if you are interested. I can use about 2 tons. also Jeremysdemo from new Jersey is also interested in some bit. Pls. pm me if you want to share the cost. :) 2x2 is good but 4x4 or bigger is better in a hand fired stove.

For the people in east central Il or west central Ind you can buy coal at Black Beauty Coal in Ridge farm IL. $53.25 a ton 3 weeks ago. Mine run so a lot of fines. I had to sift it through some hardware cloth before I could burn it. It has been all I can find so far. I called over 20 places and they were the only that sells to the public. 8:00 AM to noon mon through fri .I would be willing to drive 150 mi or so for something better if anyone knows any place I can buy.

yes, rebos supply in elma does sell bit coal, but it's coking coal with unfavorable properties, and, last I knew, they were not selling it for a reasonable price; something like $350/ton. If you want good bit coal only a few hours drive take 219 south to punxsuatawney (valier) and go to valier coal yard in penn. they have nut bituminous for $75/ton - very good coal and one of the closest (reasonably priced) sources to the buffalo area that I know of. Tonawanda coke will also sell you coal, but once again it's met coal for coking and will cake horribly, trust me you don't want it unless you have a stoker and even then it's a pain.

I called rebos supply in elma this morning and now they're asking $380/ton picked up!! lol :roll:

Thanks for that info. The location in Elma said they only coal they sell is Anthracite so guess I will have to go to Penn to find something easier to burn.

I finally got the thing going today. I loaded it up yesterday and now it is glowing nicely in the front 1/2. I am finding it will not work well if it is below 20 degrees out side. The chmney must not be getting hot enough.
The stove pipe never gets real hot either when I burn coal, only when I use wood does it really heat. I have to leave the lower door open to get enough air threw it.

I am just about ready to give up on the coal

I would say that your problem is Definitely draft/chimney related based on what you said. i'm not sure that bit coal will help much. wood tends to give higher exhaust gas temps which probably allows enough draft to burn properly, but with coal and lower stack temps the chimney setup you have won't allow enough draft. do you have any pics/description of your chimney? this might be easier to fix than you think. If you have any pics etc of your chimney/venting setup, start a new thread on it and we may be able to help
