Coal coke

Just wondering what people know about hauling coal coke. Got an east that 39 ft by 96” by 66” is this a big enough trailer to get 25 ton. Also I’ve heard that this stuff iss hot going on your truck? Does that mean you can’t have a plastic liner? Any advice or pointers are greatly appreciated thanks!

Never have hauled it..BUT has seen the effect on the insides of rail cars..leaves a stain ..and when you try to wash it with a water hose. Looks like a film like gasoline on water...knew people that hauled it..thats all they hauled in the trailer..best of luck ..

I have hauled plenty of coke out of ABC in Birmingham Alabama...this was already cooled off coke that was 4x6. It's pretty light stuff. my trailer is an East just like yours with 60 inch sides. I could get 20 tons. I know the guys with 102 x 70 inch trailers were getting 24. This stuff is very abrasive don't let it near your tarp.
