    Dang I have never seen a coal fired heater before. If you tried that here in California they would string you up by your balls and have all the illegals use you as a piñata while the government gave them all your cash.

    I’ve moved a lump or two of that stuff. 5 gal bucket at a time to put it in the coal bin at my grandparents. They had a coal furnace until after my grandpa retired from the mines. Love the smell of a coal fire. Miss that stuff. Kids now will never understand.

    I've got one in the garage. Works really good but unless I'm out there a lot I can't see the sense in keeping it running all the time. It'd be great if it didn't take so long to heat my garage up lol.

    My home had a coal fired furnace, The feed door, shoot, and storage area in the basement are still there. It was changed out, like a decade ago, but it still doesn't fail to find coal dust in just about every nook, and cranny of the room, and it's been cleaned a few times, lol.

    That’s awesome. I burned coal for several years at my place in 5 gal pains until wood became easier to deal with. Scrounged CL for coal removals and moved it in the back of the Explorer. Once I made the switch to wood I gave it all to a friend’s father. He still burns coal exclusively in his house.

    ~3000lbs lasts the winter? That’s great! My friends dad gets a triaxle dumped at the beginning of the season and usually at least half a load by around this time of year to last though the season.

    Backside of a school bus. No one was hurt, but military tires will not stop well in the rain when hauling a load. Sounds like frame is still savable.

    Doesn’t look like much meat left on that passenger side front tire

    I wouldn’t be surprised, heard more of the story today and turns out he’s not at fault from the police report, bus #1 was stopped but bus #2 didn’t see the bus and slammed on the brakes and changed lanes at the last moment, and the bullnose hit the back of bus #2 going below the speed limit, and was completely unavoidable. Truck frame is fine because there was no bumper on it at the time, but truck is likely totaled and well put another cab on it. Likely going to get an obs cab and interior and use bullnose fenders again.
