Additional Info

  • Admin Review: Oct 2014: High heat, low ash and great looking bag that is solid and thick. What else do you want from a pellet. These pellets burned great so they are absolutely added to the "best" list.
    Nov - 2017 - High heat, low ash and great looking bag that is solid and thick. What else do you want from a pellet. This year the ash was just a slight bit higher but still very low. The smell was great and the pellets were really dense. Great heat and overall a very nice pellet. I'm going to add them to the best list.

    I have an Englander 2200 and tried these pellets. I will not buy them again. There was so much ash that I had to clean the stove every day (sometimes twice a day). They also built up a lot of ash in the chimney. They are just not worth it.

    I have two pellet stoves one is a Pelopro 60 and the other is Pelpro Steptop multi-fuel. I purchased a ton of these pellets at Menards. The 60 on very cold days of -10f to +16f burns one to one and a half bags. The pellets burn efficiently but I have to clean the klinker out twice in a 24 hour period along with the ash. The pp-60 is heating a 1200 square foot shop/garage. The Pelpro Steptop is heating a 2000 square foot house with a using the same pellet. The stove auger set at 2 burns about two bags on very cold days and it also has to be cleaned no less than twice a day. The pellets have alot dust and anywhere from 1/4 to 1 cup fines per bag. Also have a lot of ash and klinker buildup. I like the heat they put out seem to burn better in pp-60. During a normal average winter day in Missouri the stoves burn about half the amount or less. There is some amount of clouding and soot build up. Overall I think for the price I paid for these a week ago 199.00 a ton there not to bad for the price. So as long as you clean your stove once or twice daily they'll burn. Just looking foward to a pellet that's a bit less labor intensive.

    pellets small, lots of fines. used in a Harman insert. Have used several brands and American Wood Fiber is the worst I have used. So much dust and fines that pellets have to be pushed down the sides of the hopper. The quality is way down this year. Have had to clean the insert 3 times and only burned around 40 bags
    of pellets.

    three year old Harman P61a, typically run w/thermostat (room temp mode) set at 70 deg, blower set to high running a feed rate of 2 to 2-1/2.

    Pros:
    I average between 350 - 375 deg surface temp. Pellets burn relatively clean. No clinkers (I clean the stove 100% after every ton). If I shift to manual mode and run at max stove temp, I can hit 425 deg at a burn rate of 2. Price was in the neighborhood of 225/ton

    Cons:
    Pellet size inconsistent. VERY dusty. out of 70 bags, three or four had significant sawdust. Some bags weaker than others. Several had holes from the processing plant (in the middle bottom layer of the skid). Other bags had weak spots and I found my fingers breaking through the plastic as I was unloading the ton from the truck by hand.

    Overall Review after 70 bags:

    Full cleaning needed with 15 bags left from the first ton.

    I have found burning a ton will fill the ash bin. Ash is a bit darker than the light fluffy gray I would expect. I find that the ash cakes in the corners of the burn tray but with 0 clinkers. I have noticed when cleaning the inside of the burn box, the ash was very granular and gritty.

    Burning in auto mode (using the room temp probe) will give me a hump that must be chipped away in the middle of the burn box that forms within 5 - 7 days. I have heard similar reports from others that run their P61a with the thermostat in room temp mode.

    1000 pounds into my second ton after a full cleaning, I have a bit of clouding on the glass and significant ash on the side shelves and a half full ash bin.

    I do not get a lazy flame as long as I knock the ash accumulation out of the tray every day or two.

    I would rate these pellets a 7.5 out of ten.

    Picked up about 40 bags at Meijer in Fishers, IN on clearance. Never had tried these before, but thought it would be worth a try. They burn real hot and I had to adjust the fuel feed down on my US Forrester stove to keep it from overheating. I can do that because I modified the electronics system for that. There are clinkers of hard ash...but very little fly-ash. Overall ash is less than SIH or Somerset. I do like them and more-so because of the great economy of them.

    I bought a few bags from Tractor Supply at a low price that came out to about $220 a ton. These pellets tend to give off a strong burnt wood smell. I have a Harman Accentra stove. They seem to produce clumps of hard ash.

    I bought a ton of these on the word of the store that sold me my quadrafire pellet insert. The pellets burn ok But way to much dust in each bag and low heat along with high ash. The stove was cleaned out two days before I got them and it is a year old insert I am going through twice as many bags a week as I did with another brand from last year and it is not as cold here as it was last year. I will not be buying any more of them.

    I purchased a ton of the soft wood pellets last year. I have a Breckwell P24I insert that is cleaned faithfully. These are some of the worst pellets I have ever tried to burn. Very low heat and as much ash and soot as Inferno's. I plan to burn the 30 bags that I have left early and late in the season. I can't wait until they're gone, tired of cleaning the stove daily.
