Trucks doing truck stuff thread. 6.2 version

Hauled first load of wood today with Blue 2.0 since I got her in september. Had to get one before our thaw here in Nw Ohio this week. Many more to come for this truck. It was nice to fill an 8ft bed instead of 6ft.

Thank you sir. I only account for one of those saws. The rest are my buddies who cuts with me. All running on 100LL fuel. Never had a bad fuel problem running that stuff. My saw is a MS310, my buddies are Ms391,ms251 and ms193t. I left my little one at home this trip.

What's your payload on your truck? Is that an XLT? I'm just curious how much a long box cuts down on payload.

I am not yet sure how long that load will last. This was my first try with coal. So far I am getting three times the burn time as an equivalent volume of seasoned red oak wood. During the several weeks of below and near zero weather we had I was going through 3 wheel barrow loads of wood a day. I was going through one barrow load of coal a day after I switched over to it.

My uncle burned both coal and wood for years. Funny story about it. I got coal for Christmas as a joke. Since I was quite young at the time, I didn't find it funny especially being Christmas. He quit burning coal when the delivery company no longer offered the product since he was 3 customers that used it. Those look like some serious sized chucks of black stuff. Wow I take it you break it apart with a sledgehammer or something?

Nope, I just throw the whole chunks in the furnace. The bigger they are the easier it is for me to regulate the heat.

My stove won't take coal. What does coal cost to buy? Some people are paying crazy money for cord wood where I am at. They could heat with propane for what they are willing to pay. 200 per cord?!

It is $100 A ton picked up for the bituminous coal that is mined around here. This has 24 million BTU per ton. Dry red oak as 24 million BTU per cord. These weeks of very cold weather had my wood pile going down very fast, and I was going to have to take vacation time to cut wood or buy some at $75 per long bed for mixed hardwood. I decided that if it would work coal would be a better value, and after burning about half of that load I am pretty sure I was right.
