I do not own pellet mill but done lot of reserch on them. A lot of the smaller mills are made for makeing feed and grass pellets and do not hold up well makeing wood pellets. I have found place that sells several types of mills. I think for personal use you should look at a pto or diesel powered one the ones tht run on eletic motors are going to cost lot to run. I feel light industrial model would hold up best for wood pellets best price I have seen on one is from this web site. http://www.stakproperties.com/index.php?p=3_20 they are not cheapest ones. they do have several types. this might a place to take a look at if you are going to get one.
