    I have burn all top grade pellets and so far the O'Malleys have burned the hottest of all that I tried with a discharge temp of 400+ degrees , Barefoots were 2nd on my list of 350 degrees discharge temps, and they all make a lot of ash when outside temps are cold be your stoves run a hell of lot more !!!!

    Well, after reading a good section of the posts, I feel better that it's not me. This is our first time using O'Malley's and I do no like them, I feel we wasted our money, all of the negative reports that I have read is happening to us, very low heat, very high ashes. You have to sit directly in front of the stove to feel the heat. I'm cleaning the stove two to three times a week. we only purchased them because every store was sold out of other brands and this store was the only one with pellets left, I can now see why, nobody wants to buy them. I really hate them, and we will never buy them again, I brought 10 bags of them and now I have to suffer.

    We bought this pellets never again they clogged my upper auger. we found rubber in the auger. The pellets were up to 3" long. They didn't burn hot & produced lots of ash. I had to clean the stove twice a week.

    Harman Accentra since 2005. I hate O'Malleys! Good price but you get what you pay for. Incredible amount of ash and the heat produced is just okay. Thank goodness I only bought 4 bags to test. I used Turman's without problems but the local place says no more this year. I've been using Greenway's and I'm very very pleased with them. Good heat and very little ash! Paying $5.50 a bag in Glen Burnie Md. Lignetics is awful with my stove. Lot's of ash so-so heat. I only use them in a pinch because I can walk to the place that sells them. Hamer's is great but at $7.95 a bag that is way too much money. Love the Accentra. I clean it about every two weeks. Scape down the innards and wipe the sides every two days or so. Hope this helps.

    I have just finished burning my first ton of these pellets in my Englander 25. I am not impressed. Good heat, but lots of ash and clinkers. I have to clean my burn pot more than once per day. Also noticed a lot of dust in every bag... caused my auger to clog twice during this ton. The length of the pellets is also inconsistent and cause some chute clogging issues. This is my third season with this stove and I burnt "hardwood heat" pellets (from Tractor Supply) for the first two season. I had more clinkers in those than I wanted, but not nearly as many as the "O'Malley's" pellets. I tried the O'Malleys as a result of a recommendation from my local stove shop. I won't be buying them again. I will keep looking for a brand that won't make me clean the burn pot twice a day. For now, I'm going back to the Hardwood Heat brand for the rest of this season... and only cleaning my burn pot twice a week.

    These are terrible pellets and the place I bought them charged way too much... I'll never buy them again, all the complaints listed are the reason...

    We have a lopi and burned turmans. they were great. Hot and little ash. We switched to omalleys by recommendation and they are awful. Continually cleaning the pot, lots of out of the bag,around the pot, and very dusty in the house. Will not buy them again.

  • Comment Link jeremy Monday, 21 January 2013 20:07 posted by jeremy

    Bought these because turmans were sold out. I will say they are much better than the lignetics but theres just to much ash for my liking. I guess I was spoiled with how well the turmans burnt in my harmon advance. I could burn a whole ton and still have space in my ash drawer. I have emptied my drawer 3 times and still have 10 bags left. The cheap price 188 ton is their biggest selling point. Turmans are 230 and are deffinately worth the extra money. I will never buy lignetics again. And if the turmans sell out i would consider buying omalleys again. As long as thy stay under 200. Not worth any more than that

    I burn these in my Central Boiler Maxim M250 furnace and love them. There is very low ash. I initially had clinkers but took the recommendation to give more air and cut back on pellet flow. Worked like a charm and the heat output is great. I won't use anything else.

  • Comment Link Ken Thursday, 22 November 2012 14:00 posted by Ken

    I have to agree with the last comment. I'm getting brick sized clinkers in my fire pot every single day. I clean my pot out in the evening before bed and when I wake up a 6:30 there stove is cold there are pellets unburnt in the fire pot. Idig them out and I have huge clinker clogging up the works.
    On a positive note they are probably the hottest pellets I have ever burned. They were cheap.

    I only bought one ton and honestly I won't buy another. Im going to pay a little more for say Hamers that burn really hot and don't clog my fire pot.

    We have a Mount Vernon insert which we've had since 2006. We have used Energex in the past with great success. This year we switched to O'Malley because the price was good and the guy who was selling them seemed like a nice guy so we wanted to give him the business, we paid $205/ton. If I didn't have 5 ton sitting in my garage, I wouldn't complain, but it's going to be a long inconvenient winter with this. Unfortunately, we have had terrible issues with clunkers with the O'Malley. There is nearly no ash but a solid clunker. If we don't open the ash pan and move the clunkers when they fall, the self-cleaning mechanism gets jammed and the stove doesn't function. I wouldn't even describe them as clunkers, it's more a cylinder tube the shape of the fire pot. I have contacted O'Malley with the model of our stove, the way we have run it to attempt to remedy the issue. He apologized for our problem but told me the pellets are 100% hardwood and have a higher BTU than most pellets. Not quite the answer I was looking for, so if anyone has any suggestions they can lend or have experienced this problem, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. Next year, it's back to Energex for us!

    we started using O'Malley pellets 4 years ago because pellets around us were low quality and very expensive. I liked them so much we started selling them the following year. They are the only brand we sell and I know it may sound bias but besides a super premium pellet which around here goes for close to $300 per ton; I think O'Malley pellets are great. I have an insert and they produce what I consider low ash. The clinkers one of you mentioned here I also saw and it was suggested to open my air flow. I now have the air flow wide open with an intense white flame and no clinkers. I was also able to cut my stove down one notch because with that much air the heat is more intense. I concluded that the pellets were so dense it required more air and less volume to completely burn up the pellet. That is just what I have seen and I know all stoves and settings are different.

    We used one ton of O'Malleys in our Enviro Maxx-M multi fuel stove last winter (used when temp was below 35 and it was a mild winter). We heat about 2000 sf of mostly open space rancher with vaulted ceilings. Heat pump also runs but does not kick on electric resistance backup heat. Very little ash. I think I emptied the ash drawer about 4 times. The enviro ash drawer is about half the size of a box of copier paper. I just purchased two tons for this winter from Wood Floors Plus near the DMV in Glen Burnie for $178/ton.

    Burned the O'Malley's all last winter.

    My stove is an Englander Model 25 PDVC.

    These pellets burned very well and provided a reasonable amount of heat.

    Last year we were able to get them for $159.oo a ton, this year they are $189.oo a ton, but we think that the price is reasonable considering what other brands are selling for in our area (Central Maryland)..

    good heat but LOTS of ash. I have to empty the stove 3x as often I have a St. Croix stove.

    Have a Quadra-Fire Bayview insert stove - 3 seasons of use. Have used O'Malley pellets for the last 2 years as they were best available price for premium hardwood pellet (I paid $209/ton - picked up at local dealer). Have used Energex before and Treecycle mixed in last year. The O'Malley's seemed to put out a little less heat than the Energex or the Treecycle and have more ash & produce more clinkers. Having said that, it's not really that significant. I would buy them again but would choose something else if I had a choice

    I have a Quadrafire Santa Fe insert and the O'Malleys very hot but do produce significant ash. I tried Lignetics and while they made much less ash they really caked up the firepot making it VERY hard to open and dump out. Plus, the Lignetics put out noticeably less BTUs. Bad batch? Maybe. But they seemed normal and dry. Overall, I like the O'Malleys better.

    Burning O'malleys in a England Stove Works 25PVDC
    (these are sold as Timber ridge,Summers heat,and Englander) by Home Depot,Lowes and others..
    The O'Malleys do burn at lower BTU and produce more ash compared to Lignetics and other more expensive brands....BUT...at a cost here (southern NJ) of $255/ton..They are what I'm using and am satisfied with them.

    I tried O'Malley wood pellets in my St Croix stove. The burn great, very little ash, plenty of heat. I would recommend them.

  • Comment Link Attila Saturday, 18 December 2010 09:38 posted by Attila

    Am a newbie to pellets and stoves. Recently installed Enviro M55 FPI - a 'lucky' stroke! M55 with it's pot stirrer is a HUGE help with O'Mally pellets. No matter what settings, O'Mally leaves a very large amount of ash with only a moderate amount of heat from what otherwise is a VERY highly rated stove. M55's pot stirrer at least helps the fire from being choked by the ashes. I would NOT recommend O'Malley. Based on reviews here and hearth.com, I purchased 2 tons of Okanagan pellets for the remainder of the '10/'11 heating season. WOuld have preferred CUBEX but not possible/available here Annapolis, MD. I was luck to find one (1) dealer that carries Okanagan - courtlandhearth.com! Hoping for much better fuel performance from Okanagan.

    Why would people vote on these and not leave a comment as to why. At least we could understand why they are rated 3 out of 5.
