  • Admin Review: 9-16-14 : These pellets were absolutely fantastic last year. I'm going to be burning them again this year. West coast pellets are the best by far.

    Harman P68, runs 24x7 (minus 30 minutes cleaning once per week) in MA just east of Prov, RI.
    Packsaddle pellets, although a bit pricier, are by far the cleanest and longest lasting pellets I've used too date. Very low ash, glass stays clean, cleanup is easy as the ash doesn't stick. I use less to keep an entire 3-story 3900SqFt home warm than with any other pellet, so the price evens out. This year I burned some Easy Blaze (on nights above 35 degrees, and packsaddle for all the nights below that). Burned Blazer last year. Both are no comparison to Packsaddle, and I will purchase 6 tons on an early-bird special again this summer (if I can find a distributor in my area again).

    I have a quadra fire castile insert. What setting on the control box do you recommend for pack saddle pellets?

    I Have been burning packsaddle pellets for two years, This year I have noticed that I have a lot more ash and a coagulated buildup in my burn pot, I have a Harman XXV . On the most part I guess fpr the money they are worth it but Okannagans were much cleaner.

    I switched to packsaddle this year after burning lacrete, New England, north country, and various other brands in past 5 years. What a difference! These burn so clean that I have not yet cleaned my stove once, after running it for a month of heavy use. I can tell it is clean by listening to the stove — when it ignites, the pellets hit the burning pot with a cristal clear sound, meaning no ash left in the pot. The ash tray proves that too. I used to be forced to clean my stove every week, but now....

    Yes it is a little more expensive, but you get what you pay for. Definitely the best. My years long experiment is over.

    I've been burning pellets for 7 years, I've tried a lot of different pellets both hard wood and soft wood. I purchased a ton of Packsaddle pellets and by far they are the best pellets I have ever used. They burn clean and hot so there is very little ash left behind. I empty the ash tray every two to three weeks and my stove runs 24/7. If your looking for a new pellet, you need to buy Packsaddle. The price is higher than the other pellets but it's worth it in maintenance and cleaning.

    These are by far the best pellets I have ever run through my stove. I have used Oakanagan, La Crete, LG's and a couple others I can't think of right now. I went three weeks before emptying the ash pan and it still wasn't full. Harmon Accentra insert.

    By far the best pellet. This is my 3rd year of burning Packsaddle pellets not only do they burn better and completely with no clinkers I have burned less which saves me money and I don't have to transport them Par lumber delivers no charge. Best pellet I have found in 6 years of burning pellets.

    I have a country stoves Winslow model PI40 (now owned by Lennox) that I have been running for about 8 years. I have used many brands of pellets with no problems but have noticed a difference in ash and fines build up from brand to brand. A close inspection of your photos of Saddle back pellets showes the problem that I have with these pellets. You'll see pellets 1/2", 1" and even 1 1/2". These longer pellets clog up my auger which results in low pellet flow that causes my "proof of fire" switch which shuts off my stove (yes I have replaced this switch). And what makes it worse. the configuration of my stove hopper will only allow me to use a 3/4" PVC pipe to vacuum it out which of course clogs up almost immediately with the larger pellets. So I guess the next step is to remove and dismember my stove to clean out these pellets. One positive thing I noticed is that running the pellets through my shop vacuum fractures a lot of the larger pellets. I won't be buying this brand again and I will insist on opening a sample bag before I buy a pallet of pellets.
