I was going to fill my gasifier up for another run but checking on my supply of charcoal I only have a little over a half barrow left. Unless I have miss placed a couple of barrows which is possible when I put everything under cover for winter. Oh well, this turn of events got me started on my Charcoal fuel tanks. My Father in law works at the car wash and is always being home 55 gal. and 30 gal. plastic heavy duty narrows. That’s my storage for my char charcoal.
You have two threaded bung holes, one course and one fine. I took the course threaded and making a barrow anger. If you tip the barrow it almost comes out on its own. It needs a little at times. Here are some pictures of what be built so far.
I marked with a marker pen where I ground the fitting down and cut a hole for to go through the bung cap.
Not sure of what kind of slow drive I will use, might try a cheap 12 volt drill, then I can just use 12 volt from the vehicle.
The paint stiring rod works great for a anger in the pipe, it will not grind up the pipe when turning.
This will make it easy to refill the hopper, and for going for longer mileage trips. Kinda like the luggage racks on top of the WWII vehicles, is my idea. If it is on top of a truck with a construction rack who would notice. Just hauling suppies. Right.
