    I hear it takes on to know one! ==c

    I only charge the Harman owners, The other stove owners get more pitty. If you have a Harman you must be rich, ey?

    Dont know about that. This is one purchase that I can thank the big O for. If it weren't for the tax credit, I dont think it would have been a Harman.

    The only way to achieve that is with the feed rate on 6 and the stove temp on 7. ,If you haven't done that, you haven't been using 68000 btu's

    Yup. I looked in 2008 but didnt bite. Also I did hold out on Bush's 300.00 credit in hopes that there would be a better one. Probably the few times I gambled and won.

    Based on the stash you have your sig, you shouldn't have any problems no matter what the temp.

    Even with my beast's horsepower, I have the darnedest time with less BTU pellets. Wish I could do what subsailer is doing. Guess I am scared the Mrs will get cold. The PTL's have done a nice job for me. But I just have to and I can't resist tossing in the heaters once I see single digits or less.

    What really sticks is I only have so much room. I have 50 bags of Hamer's-35 bags of Cubex and I just got 50 bags of Turman's. Its about all the room I have(200/225 bags). Leaves very little for shoulder stuff(I'd like a full 2 tons). I just can't burn the good stuff when its warm! So next season I'll be hauling shoulders as needed basically. I got to stop buying good stuff if I can't bring myself to burn them.

    I agree to this extent MWP hardwood blends are now at 259 a ton ( Ithink ) when you figure the extra BTUs of say the LaCretes or simular pellets are you really saving ? Just sayin ! The above was my Post! HARDWOOD BLENDS" You read MY POST :)

    I just checked his website and it says cash price $224/ton for what he calls MWP hardwood, which is the blend. I still say the $259 is the softies price.
