    1. Lignetics: (5stars) great pellet little or no ash (priced out of my league in NY
    2. American Wood Fibers:(4+stars) I rate it as good as Lignetics because it is so much cheaper in NY. I can live with the little ash I get, and it also does not burn as hot as #1.
    3. New England Wood: (3 stars) Not as good lots of ash could not run stove on low or medium settings, would shut off due to ash buildup. if it was the only pellet I could buy then i would use it.
    Again, for the money A.W.F. does well in my stove I will be purchasing another 5 tons again this year
    I have a Quadra-Fire stove (I like the Round Fire Box, easy to clean)

    The worst pellets I have used so far. I have a US Stove Hearth Focus, and burn about 4-5 ton a year, usually use Michigan Wood Pellets, but since they are all sold out, I got these. The ash is very course and abundant, sticks to the inside of my stove and clogs everything up. I was doing bi-weeky maintenance once or twice a day, and annual major maintenance weekly.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Nice pellet. High heat, low ash and no haze on window after three days of burning. 4.19 per bag or 179 a ton from TSC. Going to get more for the rest of the season. Stove: Savannah Westpoint cleaned daily of ash, window as needed.

    This is first year I've used AWF pellets. I consider myself a journeyman pellet burner by now. Been so for 14 plus years. I use Harman XXV and P43 pellet stoves. Low ash and VERY good heat output from this pellet although too many fines in each bag. Will use another brand next year.

    I purchased 2 tons of these thinking I purchased ligistics (which I was very happy with)well out of 10 bags my auger got stuck with a piece of wood. Fixed that problem quickly but 4 days later a klunk and stove shut down like it should. Looked up to correct problem it took a whole day for my insert to be pulled out from wall to find a big chuck of wood that jammed my auger tight. Called the store where I bought them from and told them I had these 3years ago and they were terrible would they take them back the reply was yes but at another 60.00 to p/u the rest of 2 tons. I have to screen all the bags for wood pieces.The rest of the bag had slivers of wood my grandchildren and I picked out. I was told I could strain all my bags. I should be putting up Christmas decoration or baking cookies with my grandchildren not picking through pellets. Very Very unhappy

    I burned approximately a half ton of these last season in my Whitfield stove. Burned very hot and had moderate to high ash. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again, just not my favorite pellet yet.

    I purchased a ton of this American Wood Fibers and it is nothing but cardboard and burns way to fast. I thought it was the same as last years that I got from Home Depot but not. Stove is a Heatilator 35000 btu after burning 10 bags we had to dimantle the stove to clean it.

    I have an Englander 2200 that I bought last season. I burned 20 bag of these last year. The price was great and they burned slower then the bags of soft wood okanagan's I burned. I noticed little difference maybe less ash with the soft wood but it wasn't that much of a difference. I couldn't find these this year I have a few bags left in the garage from last season. Bought 12,000 pounds of Green Supreme waiting for the weather for cool. Had the stove on one morning this season but that was two weeks ago.

    I own a Englander 2200 Sq ft Pellet stove. American wood fiber Pellets are inconsistant I bought a ton at the beginning of the year loved the heat from pellets but high ash! I bought a second ton at Tractor Supply. Still high ash but the heat wasnt there! a little disapointed in the difference. I probably will do some more research for next year before buying another ton!

    I have a Harman PF100 and have had no problems with PFW pellets, bought them at early season sell at Lowes $189 a ton and then 10% off with military discount. The only negative I found is that they are dusty out of the bag, but I will buy again at the right price.

  • Comment Link Norm Saturday, 10 December 2011 03:10 posted by Norm

    I have an Avalon Astoria and this is my 2nd year burning wood pellets. I've burned every type of wood pellets I can find that are under $5 a bag and most are $4. I've noticed almost no difference in any of them. I clean the stove about every 3 days and never adjust it. This brand burns as well as any other and the price is right.

  • Comment Link Scott Kozar Monday, 05 December 2011 22:04 posted by Scott Kozar

    I've got a US Stove model 4041. These pellets don't put out a lot of heat and they create way too much ash. They are cheap and can be used in a pinch but I wouldn't buy them if any other brand were available.

  • Comment Link rks130 Saturday, 29 October 2011 18:16 posted by rks130

    Picked up a dozen and a half bags at our local HD. I am new to pellet heat but they seem quite fine and superior to other brands I have burned.

  • Comment Link Dennis Saturday, 05 February 2011 14:35 posted by Dennis

    They burn very well with the feed turned down and the blowers turned up on our stove. Took a while to figure that out. We were getting a pot full of ash after one bag. But after changing the blower and feed settings we get less than a 1/2 pot of ash per bag.Im guessing that means the pellets are very hard and packed takes along time to burn each one. Although they dont produce as much heat as Summerset pellets they do last longer.

    The very best pellets I have ever utilized. Very low ash and high burn. I will try and find them next year. This year purchased at Farm & Tractor Store.
