    My stove is a Harman XXV and it alone will heat a 2000+ sq. ft. home using the Maine Woods pellets. This is my 3rd year using Maine Woods and they burn hot and efficiently. I burn approximately 4+ ton for my home every winter. As of 2017, they are priced at $225/ton and probably one of the best prices going here in Central Maine. I have them delivered to my house directly from the mill. Only criticism I have is the amount of creosote buildup I get in my burn pot, especially when it is burning low. Otherwise it heats a large house in Maine for about $900/yr. Not too shabby!

    Just bought a ton of these Maine Woods pellets. I have to move them off the pallet to my pellet storage area. Unfortunately at least 60% of the bags either had holes or seams that were not secure, so a lot of pellets were dumped and I spent considerable time taping up the bags. These were not defects from transportation/delivery.

    Also, the pellets did not look promising - most were no more that 1/4 to 3/8 inches long at best. Higher quality pellets should be longer.

    I'm glad my purchase was limited to a ton, out of the 6 tons I use in a year. . .

    How true is this statement??? Hardwood logs burn longer because their density is higher than softwood. BUT pellets are completely different, both hardwood an softwood are compressed into pellets. The density should be fairly close, the only difference would be in the fibers of the compressed wood. Would that make that much difference? I don't believe it will to make one believe that hardwood is the better choice. The softwood burns hotter. It would take someone smarter/more committed to discovering the truth then I. Taking the time to figure the btu's per bag would be the test. Since softwood produces more btu's ( British Thermal Units per hour) can one say hardwood is better, IF the hardwood pellet burns longer is it better? How much longer? What are the BTU'S per bag for each? If hardwood burns 8400 btus/hr and burns 1.6666lbs/hr for 24 hours at setting 3,4 and softwood produces 8600 btu's/hr for 23 hours at setting 3,4 which is better? NOT ACTUAL RATINGS, JUST AN EXAMPLE

    I have always used New England until last year. I even had random pellets getting stuck shutting down my Harman stove. Tried dry Creek and loved the difference in ash content so much easier to keep clean. I just purchased a bag of Maine Premium pellets to try have heard mixed reviews

    I burn 5 tons per season. This year excessive fine particles were a real problem.

    Went from the best to bust. Cleaned, adjusted, changed gaskets and motors.

    Would burn well for a couple of days (bags), then not so good for a week.

    Great pellet for the money.. Been burning these pellets for 6 years now. I burn 18-24 tons depending on the year of these pellets between my 2 business buildings and my house that I heat with only pellet stoves. I get great heat, long burn time per bag and reasonable ash. With a truck load group buy of a 104 tons at $215.00 a ton delivered you cant go wrong and I will keep burning them.

    We have not been able to get these so far this year. We have been trying since the first of Sept. and can not find them. We may this year have to find a new brand of pellets.

    We purchased 3 tons of these last year and didn't like them. Made a lot of ash and seemed to burn faster. Prefer to use Green Team.

    I've used this brand for the past few years in my Quadrafire stove insert. We burn @ 4- 5 tons/season running the stove 24/7. This pellet throws off good heat and is low ash. Our house is kept warm and toasty and our electricity bills are about 1/3rd what they are when we heat by electric alone.

    Didn't realize how much better this brand was compared to some others that I used in the past until I ran out and due to the shortage had to buy whatever i could find. We bought Lignetics brand - after burning 1 bag we returned the rest and got our money back. Then we bought New England Premium brand which we had burned the first couple of years we had the stove. I was surprised at how much more ash and less heat that this brand had compared to the Maine Woods brand. I will be purchasing Maine Woods pellets again this year.
