Additional Info

  • Admin Review: Aug 2017 - Lauzon pellets (Cubex) have had a bad quality issue a few years back.
    Sept-2017 - Going into the hopper now. I know that a few years back they had a really bad run of pellets but i"m sure that is worked out now. I hope they burn like I remember!

    Well want to add what I somehow left out in my review below
    I run two stoves a Harman P68 on the first floor and a P43 in the cellar which I based my review down below on. Still think these are some of the best pellets as far as consistency, quality and heat. Rival much more expensive Softwood pellets in certainly heat output and low ash content pretty darn close.
    If you are not getting the similar results might be time to do a serious cleaning or if your not inclined to do it yourself have your stove serviced by a professional.

    I burn a lot of pellets and use them as my primary source of heat for my leaky old farmhouse. I have 2 stoves one in the cellar and one on the first floor to heat my 2800 sq,ft, 1860 farmhouse . Last winter I had tried a ton of Cubex which i found out were the same pellet as Northern Max. When i found my favorite dealer had these for spring special at $229 a ton I went for it and bought my supply for heating my house this winter 10 ton. I have burned a lot of pellets and these match or exceed any pellet in heat output I have tried including softwoods and yes even Douglass Fir. The ash output is more than Doug Fir but then again all pellets put out more ash than DF, some softies have better or less ash but dont match the heat output. The quality of the pellets are exceptional, dense hard pellets and of good length in not to long or short average between 1/2" and 1". I decided I would do a little more cleaning of the stove and save $1000 bucks doing so as the heat is flipping awesome with these pellets. If you have access to these dont hesitate to grab them, if you typically burn softwoods you will have a bit more frequent cleaning of the stove but they will deliver the heat at a much reduced price if you can grab them in the spring .
    Excellent pellet from our friends up north made from wood waste created in milling hardwood flooring . Good Stuff , great quality .

    I purchase a pallet of these wood pellets and lost 7 bags on the pallet because moisture must of gotten in them. When they are delivered to me I immediately put them in a dry cool place. Can I be reimbursed for the lost bags?

    This is my second year of pellet stove use. Last year I used mostly Curran (didn't care for them) but sampled other brands. This year I did a ton of LaCrete, a ton of Queston, and a ton of Northerns. All are good pellets, but I have been impressed with the low ash output of the Northerns. In addition, my auger squealed a lot with the Currans. Less so with the LaCrete and Questons, but essentially none with the Northerns. The Northerns also seem to feed better and not "funnel" as much in the hopper.

    These pellets were recommended to us by the people we bought our stove from. We used them all last year and I must say their performance was excellent. They had very little ash and clean up was almost nothing every week. The price was about moderate compared to some of the other pallets and we had no problem getting them locally in central Massachusetts. We will buy them again this year.

    I bought 15 bags of these pellets. They burnt great in my harmen p43! They where real hot with low ash. I would recommend these pellets to any haman owner. I know harman can burn any pellet on the market. But these ones were the best!

    This is my first year with a pellet stove so I've been trying a lot of different pellets northern have been the hottest pellet I have tried, the bags seem to have a lot of fines though. I can live with it for that kind of heat, also very low ash. My enviro m55 cast seems to like hardwood pellets much better than softwood

    I have an enviro m55 cast. This is my first year burning wood pellets. I have tried 10-15 different brands and northern have burned the hottest of all of them. They have been petty low ash as well. My stove runs best on straight hard wood pellets. There are a little more fines though than some of my other favorites like Turmans and Barefoots. But over all a great pellet!
