    Harman Accentra since 2005. I hate O'Malleys! Good price but you get what you pay for. Incredible amount of ash and the heat produced is just okay. Thank goodness I only bought 4 bags to test. I used Turman's without problems but the local place says no more this year. I've been using Greenway's and I'm very very pleased with them. Good heat and very little ash! Paying $5.50 a bag in Glen Burnie Md. Lignetics is awful with my stove. Lot's of ash so-so heat. I only use them in a pinch because I can walk to the place that sells them. Hamer's is great but at $7.95 a bag that is way too much money. Love the Accentra. I clean it about every two weeks. Scape down the innards and wipe the sides every two days or so. Hope this helps.

    I have just finished burning my first ton of these pellets in my Englander 25. I am not impressed. Good heat, but lots of ash and clinkers. I have to clean my burn pot more than once per day. Also noticed a lot of dust in every bag... caused my auger to clog twice during this ton. The length of the pellets is also inconsistent and cause some chute clogging issues. This is my third season with this stove and I burnt "hardwood heat" pellets (from Tractor Supply) for the first two season. I had more clinkers in those than I wanted, but not nearly as many as the "O'Malley's" pellets. I tried the O'Malleys as a result of a recommendation from my local stove shop. I won't be buying them again. I will keep looking for a brand that won't make me clean the burn pot twice a day. For now, I'm going back to the Hardwood Heat brand for the rest of this season... and only cleaning my burn pot twice a week.

    These are terrible pellets and the place I bought them charged way too much... I'll never buy them again, all the complaints listed are the reason...

    We have a lopi and burned turmans. they were great. Hot and little ash. We switched to omalleys by recommendation and they are awful. Continually cleaning the pot, lots of out of the bag,around the pot, and very dusty in the house. Will not buy them again.

    Bought these because turmans were sold out. I will say they are much better than the lignetics but theres just to much ash for my liking. I guess I was spoiled with how well the turmans burnt in my harmon advance. I could burn a whole ton and still have space in my ash drawer. I have emptied my drawer 3 times and still have 10 bags left. The cheap price 188 ton is their biggest selling point. Turmans are 230 and are deffinately worth the extra money. I will never buy lignetics again. And if the turmans sell out i would consider buying omalleys again. As long as thy stay under 200. Not worth any more than that

    I burn these in my Central Boiler Maxim M250 furnace and love them. There is very low ash. I initially had clinkers but took the recommendation to give more air and cut back on pellet flow. Worked like a charm and the heat output is great. I won't use anything else.

    I have to agree with the last comment. I'm getting brick sized clinkers in my fire pot every single day. I clean my pot out in the evening before bed and when I wake up a 6:30 there stove is cold there are pellets unburnt in the fire pot. Idig them out and I have huge clinker clogging up the works.
    On a positive note they are probably the hottest pellets I have ever burned. They were cheap.

    I only bought one ton and honestly I won't buy another. Im going to pay a little more for say Hamers that burn really hot and don't clog my fire pot.

    We have a Mount Vernon insert which we've had since 2006. We have used Energex in the past with great success. This year we switched to O'Malley because the price was good and the guy who was selling them seemed like a nice guy so we wanted to give him the business, we paid $205/ton. If I didn't have 5 ton sitting in my garage, I wouldn't complain, but it's going to be a long inconvenient winter with this. Unfortunately, we have had terrible issues with clunkers with the O'Malley. There is nearly no ash but a solid clunker. If we don't open the ash pan and move the clunkers when they fall, the self-cleaning mechanism gets jammed and the stove doesn't function. I wouldn't even describe them as clunkers, it's more a cylinder tube the shape of the fire pot. I have contacted O'Malley with the model of our stove, the way we have run it to attempt to remedy the issue. He apologized for our problem but told me the pellets are 100% hardwood and have a higher BTU than most pellets. Not quite the answer I was looking for, so if anyone has any suggestions they can lend or have experienced this problem, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. Next year, it's back to Energex for us!

    we started using O'Malley pellets 4 years ago because pellets around us were low quality and very expensive. I liked them so much we started selling them the following year. They are the only brand we sell and I know it may sound bias but besides a super premium pellet which around here goes for close to $300 per ton; I think O'Malley pellets are great. I have an insert and they produce what I consider low ash. The clinkers one of you mentioned here I also saw and it was suggested to open my air flow. I now have the air flow wide open with an intense white flame and no clinkers. I was also able to cut my stove down one notch because with that much air the heat is more intense. I concluded that the pellets were so dense it required more air and less volume to completely burn up the pellet. That is just what I have seen and I know all stoves and settings are different.

    We used one ton of O'Malleys in our Enviro Maxx-M multi fuel stove last winter (used when temp was below 35 and it was a mild winter). We heat about 2000 sf of mostly open space rancher with vaulted ceilings. Heat pump also runs but does not kick on electric resistance backup heat. Very little ash. I think I emptied the ash drawer about 4 times. The enviro ash drawer is about half the size of a box of copier paper. I just purchased two tons for this winter from Wood Floors Plus near the DMV in Glen Burnie for $178/ton.
