    I have a Harman XXV.Bought these in a pinch at Wal-Mart, as there is a pellet shortage in my area . My usual ones are Crabbe.

    Contrary to the experience of others ,I'm getting excellent heat and less dust than the Crabbes

    I would rate these pellets 7/10. I think they have low fines, moderate ash and my Harman invincible insert seems to love them. Only pellet I like better is Energex.

    These pellets are horrible!!!!! Worst pellets ever. They used to be very good. I dont know what happened. They dont burn, alot of ash, alot of burning ambers that could cause a fire, alot of smoke, and they also jam the anger which you then have to spend time un jamming.

    Harman P61, I totally agree with Ingram's post on the performance. His experience is identical to mine. Have only had the stove for two years and had great luck then but these two tons are going FAST! Lots of ash and obviously not as much heat as before. Too bad, good price but will have to do some more web search to find the next brand of pellets which will not be the Maine Woods brand.

    Bought 2 tons Maine Woods Pellets from Home Depot for 2014/2015 winter and sorry that I did. Quality seems to have gone downhill from the 2 tons I bought last year. Same place, same brand. This year's loaded with fines (1 1/2 cups per bag when I sift them), Low heat, lots of ash. Will not buy Maine Woods Pellets next time and myself and others have notified Home Depot in our area of the low quality of this year's pellets. Although it says, "Premium" on the bag they definitely are not "Premium".

    Well, I guess that my comments regarding Maine Woods Pellets must not mean anything because never posted. What I said in my comment would definitely help out other wood pellet users decide. So, I guess my time writing the comment was wasted.

    Quadrafire classic bay insert. Will never purchase these pellets again! So much - so heat, ash like I've never seen before. ...

    I burned almost two tons of Maine Woods Pellets during the winter of 2013/2014 and found them very clean, low ash, good heat. Bought another two tons from Home Depot in Ellsworth, Maine in November 2014 to burn for this winter 2014/2015. They absolutely suck compared to the previous two tons. I sift and get two cups of fines this year. After 12 hours of burn I have to shut stove down and clean a huge ash buildup. The heat output is a lot less than before. Maine Woods Pellets must have changed their mix formula to almost 100% softwood which makes them much less quality. I am going to make sure I never buy Maine Woods Pellets again and several friends of mine and I are going to try to get our local Home Depot to not carry them again. I just tried 5 bags of Fireside and hardly no fines, high heat, very minimal ash. This will be my choice from now on. Home Depot says they can get them and do have them in other stores here in Maine. Goodbye Maine Woods Pellets!

    Bought a ton of Maine pellet company LLC pellets for $ 269 a ton from Bensons Lumber in Londonderry NH (delivered early, polite and easy to deal with) Dodge grain has jacked thier prices and is out of pellets often
