    I live in Oxford about 20 minutes from Pelletsdirect.....I can fit half a ton in my Jeep but that does not help when you need to buy a ton at a time.

    Take half and tell them you're coming back for the other half. I've done that before. Took half and came back a week later for the other half. I'm sure they'll be fine if you can do it in the same day, even if it's on blow out sale stuff. Seriously, Kevin and his wife are extremely nice. Just ask them.

    Is there a better hint for the newbies? I have no idea what squires had on sale last year. If it's something decent at a great price, I need to make room in my house for more pellets!

    Looks to be, But like Squires. Its too far for me to be worth getting in on the deal. Sure hope a dealer near me gets a deal like this one day!

    Haha, I thought u missed that post. Ya did good ignoring me.

    I got scolded by J. I'm just a guy. Lol.

    Seriously tho I'm burning Pinnacle spinoffs, never have any probs.

    But the first thing I would try is the utility setting if u think ur burn is dirty.

    Later

    OMV if you get yourself in the dog house? You can store your pellets at my place! Free of charge(for a little while then 10% per day after the first month). ;-)

    Hmm. So they still have some? It might be worth renting the Home Depot truck and taking a ride up there this weekend. I don't have a way to pick them up but even if the truck rental is $40/$50 it would still be worth it for the $150 price tag.

    The people who have bought these - are you still happy with them?

    Got them elsewhere, but yes I am happy with them. For the money (and especially that blowout price) I'd say it's a good buy. Pros: good heat, no clinkers, and very little dust when I empty a bag into the stove. Cons: ash, fines (no prob in my stove, but definitely noticeable at the bottom of the bag). They also smell nice.

    If I do head up there to pick some up I will probably be mixing them in the hopper with the Le Crete's I'm having delivered tomorrow.

    Worst pellet I ever used. About 100x worse than Infernos. Stay away. Very far away. Clinkers the size of school buses, ash piles over my roof. My house got colder when I tried to burn them. Stove spit them back out of the hopper.




















    There....that ought to keep em away long enough to go get another few tons :cheese:

    Wow, I almost bought it. But then I though about it(before I read the bottom) and said salty and OMV have plans to buy the whole lot of em!

    Couple of ornery pigs! :shut: hehe

    I burnt them all night house was warm ash was little more than usual. Heat was good. This weekend should be a good test as its supposed to get cold in Rhode island. I figure if I have to clean it a few more times big deal. AND I have used INFERNOs DO NOT COMPARE TO THOSE PIECE OF CRAP PELLETS to these.

    OMV I saw 2 on the first truck, 2 on the second and 2 on the trailer. Can't make out if they have others side by side. So your saying 8 tons per load??

    Nice toys by the way! ;-)
