Additional Info

  • Admin Review: Sept 2014: My first impression are that these pellets come in the nicest bag I have ever seen. These pellets burned very nice and the heat was good. The ash was average and the pellets fed nicely by not hanging up in the hopper on the walls. There was a little hang up but not too bad. The only thing I noticed was that if I had my air up a little higher, I probably would have has less dirty glass on the stove.
    Nov 2017: Really nice pellet! Burned hot, smelled good, ash was low. Again, the bag is awesome and thick. You can move them with ease without worrying about putting a finger through the wall. Great Product and I recommend these pellets this year.

    I just burned my first bag of the ultra white pine. Over all a good pellet. There is very little fines in the bag. The ash is very little compared to the lignetics that I have been burning most of the year. The lignetics have alot of ash and pouring them into my stove creates a ton of dust. With these i dont have that problem.The pellet also burns more consistent, the only draw back is that as far as heat output, the lignetics burn about 10 degrees hotter, which I can't figure out because everything I have read says soft burns hotter then hard. Not having to clean my stove every few days is worth the 10 degree drop. Quadrafire Santa fe.

    I have a 12-year old Quadrafire Castille insert and this is my first choice of pellet brand because it burns well, produces decent heat, and leaves very little ash and clinkers so the stove can run for multiple days. It also is one of best smelling pellet brands.

    I burnt a ton of the AWF Ultra softwood pellets in my stove last winter and I liked them. This year, however, I bought a ton of these pellets and they simply won't feed into my auger unless I check the stove every few hours and push the pellets down into the feed area. There just seems to be too much dust and the pellets hang up on the sides of the hopper.
    I won't be buying any more of the Ultras - most likely I'll go back to burning the Hamers.

    Have a Harman P61. Been burning pellets for over 15 years. Miss the days of pellets at $109 a ton. Burned a lot of great and crud pellets. A big part of the difference is what your stove likes to eat. But some pellets are just full of crud. Bark, paper, cardboard etc. AWF softwood has been a brand I grab when they are available. They are on the top of my lists to look for. I burned them last in 2016-2017 but can't find them this year 2017-2018. They leave a little creosote residue in the cooler bottom of the stove, but it's not much. They burn ultra clean and hot. I can go days without scraping ash from the burn pot. The ash is light and blows from burn pot easily. And clinkers are minimal. My stove loves them. Top rated in my book.

    Burn very hot, very little ash and I have not have one clinker in over a ton. So here is the problem. These pellets have several holes in each bag. If the place you are buying them from stores them outside you are going to have problems.

    Another thing about these, use your thermostat on your stove and run the feed at a medium setting. It you do that you will not get the black soot buildup, in fact if you have a soot buildup just crank up the stove and the heat will burn it away. It's not rocket science!

    I have a Harmon Accentra and love this machine. I've been using AMF pellets for two years now and have not had a problem with them. I fully understand the anger and frustration when you buy a ton of pellets and they suck! I truly believe that this happens with all brands, premium or cheap ones, at one time or another. But I would be upset if I bought tree tons of a pellet and one ton was fouled! Very little ash with this brand.

    HAHA Who could believe you with this review. It is for a White Pine pellet (what is pictured), but then you describe it as a hardwood ... Am I missing something!?

    I have a Harman Accentra insert and I’ve always burned Vermont Pellets through it. The reason I didn’t buy them this year (2014-2015 winter) was my dealer ran out and wouldn’t get more until January 2015. Wasn’t crazy on the other pellets he carried so I started to look around. I picked up few bags, here and there to try different brands out. Found theses American Wood Fiber “White Pine” at my local Home Depot. I picked up about 26 bags. They burned nicely and decided to purchase 3 tons and had them delivered. When they arrived all 3 tons were shrink rapped and no damage from a fork left at the bottom of the pallet. I started moving them into my heated garage one by one. First ton OK, Second ton OK, Third ton NO GOOD, every bag on that pallet was like concert. The bags had no sign of damage or pin holes that water or snow would get into. Returned the damage ton to Home Depot and replaced it with another damage free pallet.
    I burn about a bag and half on a cold winter’s day. Every bag I opened was loaded with sawdust that I could fill a 12oz coffee mug with. Every bag also had water or moisture in it and made all of the pellets to swell up and fall apart into sawdust. These pellets are by far the worst pellets I have ever burned. I was cleaning my stove every weekend and the amount of soot that was on the heat exchange was like concrete and was hard to scrap off. The side of the house is all covered with soot which I have never had before. I normally never write reviews but felt that I needed to on this product. I hope to save someone from experiencing the issue that I have. These pellets where not cheap and I would not buy them again. Even if someone wanted to give me 3 free tons of this shit.

    I have 2 pellet insert stoves Quadra-fire Mt Vernon and a Harmon. I used the soft wood pellets for the first time this year. They do burn hotter, cleaner with a lot less ash, and seem to last a little longer. The draw back is there are way too much fine particles that they jam the agar up quite often on the Mt Vernon Stove. I do like the fact that I don't have to empty the ash draw as much but its a pain in the tosh to unjam the agar which usually happens while I'm sleeping and I wake up to a chilly house. Not sure if I will burn them again but if I do I will try to find some kind of strainer to scoop pellets out of the bags so the fine particles don't clog my agar any more.
