    Found these at a local TS this afternoon. Little information on the bag. Bought a couple of bags to try out and wanted to know what brand they are and any experience you might have/had with them... MWP_2.jpg MWP_1.jpg

    Very good pellet,Ihave been burning these sincr 2010. I get very good heat and very little ash. Also tried their softwood pellets,this year and they burn super hot in my 55shp22 by englander. I have used up the last of the MWPs from 2009and 2010.They have been a very good pellet for us ,so far.

    I'm burning them now. Good heat, quite a bit of ash, rather strong smell, dusty. For $209/ton, I'm not thrilled, but not complaining, either.

    To really answer your question, the answer is yes, those are MWP blend. I tried them this season as well @ $192 from TSC. Very good in my Harman.

    They are MWP. I hope the ones you have are dry, no open bags, and few fines. All signs of miss handling. I was able to buy mine from a fresh delivery for $167 a ton delivered. The part I like is they don't make clinkers or accumulate as ash in my burn pot for several days.

    Many thanks to you all for your comments! It's the end of season and I need, minimum, 1/2 ton to finish the season. Of course, if these pellets work out for me and I buy a ton, there will be the other 1/2 ton for shoulder work in the fall. :cool: Someone mentioned "blend"... are they both hard and softwood in this bag? (They are getting $219/ton at TS. Local box stores winding down on their supply. I still have a stash of BF and Sets for next season. Pellets Direct has there "spring buy" in force and if I had the room, I would grab 3 tons of BFs.

    Yes they are a hardwood/softwood blend 65/35 the last I knew.

    The Softwood ones say 100% softwood on the bag, and there is no Hardwood only pellet from them as of yet, start a private conversation with ScotL for confimation, seems he has a bit to say about what they do at the MWP mill.

    From what I have seen, MWP will back up their product. They messed up badly in the beginning, but learned a lot and managed to get control of their issues. From what I have around here, their product has worked best for me. I haven't tried the real costly pellets as that just seems too irrational to me when I consider the heat and price point.

    I've been burning them too.

    They are VERY ashy, but otherwise burn pretty good. No where near as good as the easy blazes though. I fill up on ash pretty quick bruning these.

    I would agree about them being a bit ashy, but the heat's been good. Gone through 4 of the 5 tons I bought from my local TSC... Would definitely get them again.

    Gong to grab a ton tomorrow. They burn just fine in the Castille and I can deal with the ash based on their price point. You get what you pay for and I am not complaining. This way, I begin the fall burning season in good shape with the MVP as the shoulder pellet and more than enough good stuff for winter 2013-14. I just have a gut feeling we have fuel spikes very soon and $209/ton becomes tomorrow's wet dream.

    I burn the all softwood MWP and almost no ash 265 ton delivered. after 2 weeks the holes int he XXV burn pot are covered. I have not tried this diffferent labled bag though aweful cheap price for the premium MWP. Its like NEP bags if you get NH made NEP they are awesome but the NY made NEP are aweful. And I do agree MWP have a strong smell if i store them in the basement I can smell them.

    FYI.. MWP doesn't make a 100% hardwood pellet. They make a 65-35 hardwood-softwood blend and an occasional run of 100% softwood.

    I did grab that ton of MVP and will have enough to finish into the beginning of May, with left-overs for the end of September. Boy, the pellet season around here is as long as the hockey season... go figure!
