    Good Pellet. I burned 2 tons of Maine woods before burning 1 ton of the Turman. I immediately noticed that the heat output of the Turman pellet was much better than the Maine Woods. Ash content was a little higher with the Turman and I did have some clinkers. Only issue is that it cost $340/ton incl. delivery so I thought the price was steep.

    I have been using Turman pellets in my Enviro pellet stove for two years. My only down fall is that i have experienced at least two tons that the pellets were wet. It leaves a black ash in the ash pan also a layer of black burned clinkers in the burn pot. I dont like having to clean my stove every day when i rcve a bad ton of wet pellets. Pleas make sure the manufacturing process is the best quality.Other than that they are nice.

    I have been burning pellets 20+ years and on my 3rd new stove a travis industries lopi, great stove , i should have listen to the many turman users complaining about clinkers, at any feed rate, any damper setting these pellets develope a layer of fused together pellets thus slowing the air intended to fully burn them all in less than 8 hours, the clinkers can be poked to break them up but this is extreamly inconvient, they do have a chemical smell! all this for 300/ton ???

    Not at all impressed with Turman. Many little pieces of pellets that look as if they were chopped up and seems to be alot of fines. Very dusty and the heat output seems the same as Lowes pellets.

    I have used this pellet with Harman Accent rate insert and saw a lot of clinkers. I have to adjust feedrate to prevent the clinkers and allow burning pellets stay in the pot longer. I was not impressed with Turman pellet

    I've used many types of pellets (including the infamous Okanagan). Turmans are by far the best...good heat, LOW ash, great flame. Will continue to buy these.

    I have used New England Wood Pellets in our Harmon Accentra stove as the primary heat source in our home for five years now with no issues really other than the amount of ash. I know what to expect with them at this point and have not had to purchase heating oil in over three years now I'm proud to say. This spring I was recommended to use the Turman brand, did plenty of research and bought 3 tons this year.

    I agree, they throw a LOT of heat and very low amounts of ash BUT they leave amazing amounts of "clinkers" lining the burn pot causing the pellets to build up and fall into the ash bin still burning or unburnt at all while the flame in the burn pot gets enormous! Due to the size of some of these pellets (very long)the flame deflector gets pushed out of place causing the flames to burn towards the glass instead of the heat exchanger causing ash to build up VERY quickly.

    I've never experienced this with New England pellets. Anyone else experience this? I am on the fence on these pellets. Does the higher heat output really outweigh the amount of times I have to empty an ash bin?

    Turman's are great. I've been burning Hamer's up to this point in my Quadrafire Classic Bay 1200 insert. I found the Turman's a little less hot, much less ash and no clinkers. I prefer them over Hamer's and I'm getting them for $50 less a ton. I'm in Downingtown, PA.

    I own a Mt Vernon AE insert and burned a ton of these between the end of last winter and this fall. These pellets burn hot and produce very little ash. My only complaint is the amount of fines in each bag...and they don't smell nice like other hardwood pellets I've burned like Barefoot and Hammers
