    I have a p61a and the Vermont's put out great heat and hardly any ash. The only problem I have is that they blacken the inside of Harman. Glass, firebricks, and stove walls. This is the only pellet that does that for me. I've burned Spruce Pointes, Northern, and Lg Super Premiums this season and I'm only getting the black inside my stove with the Vermont's. It cleans easy, just not nice to look at.

    I have Harman XXV pellet stove,. The stove is awesome and this s my second year of burning pellets. I had two wood stoves for 20 years and a pellet stove beats them by a mile.
    The first year I burned 3 tons of Vermont Pellets and was amazed at the low sh and the great heat. I had to supplement with a ton of Cubex in April(2012) and I was not impressed with them. For this heating sason I bought 4 tons of Vermont pellets from my Harman dealer. Many of the bags(29) were poorly sealed and broke as we carried them up to my closed in back porch where we keep them. Four tons do not even take up half the porch area. I e-mailed the factory and contacted the owner. She explained they had gotten new equipent and I must have gotten a bad batch before the realized the issue. She told me she contacted the dealer with my problem. She said they would take care of the problem whatever that meant. I was not lugging almost 30 bags back 20 miles to the dealer and I am sure they were not going to deliver them. They charge $75.00 for the four ton delivery. Many of the sealed bags had pellets that crumbled in my hands and were almost white. None of the bags are burning as well as the previous year so in my opinion the quality has gone down. At about $379.00 a ton plus delivery they are far from cheap. I am retred and clean my stove weekly. To be honest I have no idea what I am going to burn next season.
    From what I have read about most of the manufacturers their pellets are all not as good as previous years. It is like everything else you buy now a days.

    Second year Quadrafire Santa Fe

    I burn nothing but Vermonts (bought 6 ton this heating for this heating season) High heat low ash. I tried a couple others brands. Less heat, more ash, more work no thanks.

    Stove Harmon Accentra Insert located in our living room:
    We received a free ton of Turman hardwood pellets with our stove. Since then I have exclusively purchased Vermont wood pellets. The main difference is the softwood seems to stick to the hopper walls, meaning I have to push the pellets to the center of the hopper feed about 4 times a bag load. the Hardwood made a bit more noise in the auger, which was noticeable in our living room. As far as heat, they are about the same. Ash was less with the Turman hardwood but the ash particles were large which made it seem like it wasn't burning efficiently. We ended up cleaning un-burned dust from the softwood pellets in and around the hopper as they seemed easier to break down. The Vermont pellets price was a bit less ($5/ton), could be because I live in VT. Overall I am very happy with the VT pellets quality and consistency.

    My stove burns 24-7 when its under 45 and I only like to clean my stove once a week. This pellet burned very dirty in my stove, black soot, clinkers had to be removed from burn pot daily. Not sure but maybe I got a bad batch, I burned 25 bags and returned the rest for New England pellets. My stove is a Breckwell insert, this was my 5th season burning pellets.

    1st yr with a mt.vernon quadra-fire ae insert,i have burned approx 60 to 70 bags from home depot and lowes hardwood/softwood mix they were ok seemed to burn hot and kept the glass clean,then a co-worker gave me 10 bags of vermont super softwood pellets,"THEY BURNED VERY HOT AND LEFT ASH TRY WITH LESS ASH THEN THE OTHER STORE BAGS" i will order 4 to 6 tons of vermont super softwood pellets this year before season is over...very impressed how much more heat it put out of my stove and less cleanings..

    Going into my fourth winter with the Quadra-Fire MT. Vernon AE insert... Vermont Wood Pellets are the third brand I've used and the first softwood brand. I'm sold going forward!!! HANDS DOWN - these kick a**!!!
    I took a chance with these and I'm glad I did. They burn hot, almost no ash!!! Again almost no ash. I'm thinking I've burned 10 bags so far and my ash pan had maybe 1/4 cup of ash. 10 bags of the past brands I've used would have filled my ash pan (easily 3-4 cups). The glass does get a bit more dirty vs. the past hardwood brands I used, but I'll trade that for reduced cleanings and better heat.

    ok heat, seemed like more ash than they advertised, lots of soot while igniting, lots of ash caked in the fire pot, lots of sticky fines that made a mess in my hopper. Based on the number of positive reviews I'm thinking I may have gotten bad bags. I bought 4 bags to try, only used 2, going to mix the other 2 bags with something else so I don't throw them away
