thank you Chris for the pics....
Please include the model of your stove in your review of these pellets.
Worst pellet I’ve burned. I have a free standing Avalon Astoria that burns damn near everything really well. These had tons of soot and really poor heat output. Got 5 bags at Lowe’s and definitely NOT getting more. They’re labeled “hardwood pellets but had a Very strong odor of pine/evergreen when I loaded them in the hopper.Report
Total garbage!! Pellets made for horse bedding works a hell of a lot better then this junk.Report
Worst pellets ever. This is Industrial Pallets little side gig in the backwoods of Eastford, CT. Don’t let them fool you. These are junk pallets that aren’t usable. Which means all softwood, pine, hemlock, fir. Think of the state of a pallet at the end of its life. Thousands of wet damp miles dragged in who knows what. That’s what your burning in your stove. Good business idea if your in the pallet business, bad product if you want to heat your home with it.....Report
These pellets are the worse pellets I've ever burned. The amount of ash is ridiculous, I need to do a complete cleaning every 3-4 days. There is also a lot of black soot. I purchased 2 tons so I'm stuck with them but I will never buy them again. I have a harmen p43 stoveReport
Low heat, high ash, and black glass . I wouldn't take them if they were giving them away.Report
We have a Harmon Centra free standing pellet stove, we put a bag of Still River pellets in last night. Temp. Was 10 degrees, we had to turn the feed rate all way up just to get the same amount of heat. We normally use New England Wood Pellets and unless its extremely cold we usually go through a bag in 24-30 hrs. The Still River lasted maybe 18 hrs. So glad that we only bought 5 bags, we thought we would try them, we bought them at Walmarts in Amherst, NH. Will not buy these again.Report
I love a stone's throw from where they make these and was excited to try them although not happy they don't sell direct. I was a little Leary since the place they are made also makes wood pallets so I was wondering if that is where the pellets came from...ground up junk pallets? Anyway...I bought 4 bags at Lowe's to try. I have 2 stoves. Both are Englanders. These pellets are HORRIBLE. Both burn pots clog up with lava flow within an hour and the glass is completely black even after a full clean of the stove and exhaust pipe. Lazy flame too. The heat output is ok but it's not worth all the cleaning I am now going to have to do. Too bad because I can see 50 billion tons from my living room almost....Report
This years offering seems to burn poorly. Lots of soot, and lazy flames. Last years pellets were awsome. No so much this year. Harman xxv.Report
In the 11 years using a pellet stove these are the worst pellets ever burned. So many fines in the bag! And they turn everything black, even after a complete cleaning.Report
I have a Freestanding 25-EP made by England's Stove Works. This is my third winter using it, I haven't had any problems with the stove and it works great. This year I bought 2 tons of Still River wood pellets. I have noticed lots of fines in the bag and in my stove upon use. The fire burns bigger but blackens everything in the stove with a heavy black sooty ash, also the burn pot fills quickly and doesn't burn as long between cleanings and the pellets back up into the chute and clog it causing more shut downs and cleanings than I've experienced with other wood pellets in the past. I would not recommend these pellets nor will I purchase this brand again.Report
