Does anyone filter/remove the fines from their pellets?

    If you are spending more time sifting your pellets than burning them you may have a problem....

    My point exactly

    If my hopper was outside i would dump a whole bag with no regrets:)

    Just hate the dust flying around in the house no matter how slow you would pour them direct from the bag :(

    Besides who wants extra work to vacumn a house more often because of dust<>

    10- 5g buckets for pellets RTB

    Sometimes i feel like i live in a wood shop without a dust/vac system

    I am not passing the white glove test that`s for sure!!!

    no,no,no dump them in and go. do not find to many fines in my Somersets.
    maybe because we buy direct from the factory and eliminate some handling??

    Threw together some scrap wood and screen. Fines are from 4 bags of pellets. House is MUCHO less dusty by sifting out the fines!

    To each his own!

    Dexter went a little overboard (IMO) with a lot of extra plastic piping. It can be made much more simple and compact:

    Just got this finished tonight. Took and hour to build and about 30 minutes to tune. Sifted 7 bags of cheat rivers and when i dumped some into the hopper not a bit of dust. Before this contraption there was dust everywhere.
