    Does a near fistfight in TSC over the last few bags count?

    Just joined the forums. I've been using pellets for the last 4 seasons.
    I have a Harmon P38 with OAK in the basement of our Rancher and I use it as our sole source of heat.
    I currently have 3 Ton of AWF, 1/2 Ton O'Malleys, 1/2 Ton of Clearfires stacked in the basement.
    I use my 2000 Ford Ranger with 4.0 V6 and a trailer to haul those pellets.

    As of yesterday...9 tons of pellets, one pellet boiler(Harman PB 105) one bulk feeder (Harman)and one accentra pellet stove(Harman) My truck Volvo tandem (6 MPG) my oil boiler ran less the 50 hours last year and my goal is zero hours this year.
    I respectfully submit my details to become a TRUE "pellet pig" to the "powers that be"....just maybe "boss hog":p

    iceguy4,

    You are faced with the following situation, between you and the last bag of the best wood pellets in the world stands a little old granny what do you do?

    I'll nominate you, but some others are going to have to vote for you. The answer to the question might help you gather votes.

    Then maybe the meeting can take place, I see we have a back log to consider, delays happen when it hasn't been burning season, that coupled with the normal aversion to work evidenced on the farm o_O.

    I don't know who the "boss hog" is this season. I'm not the one my stash is below the level that a true "boss hog" would have.

    Perhaps OMV is the boss.

    First Smokey (not to be confused with the other smoke) the comment about" boss hog" was in my mind the funniest part of my post!!! I was "giddy as a schoolgirl" at the thought of being a "true pellet pig"..(see my signature) So as a "piglet" I want to take my name out of the running for BOSS HOG ;em

    As for your question....that's a tough one...kinda depends (punch line of an "ol lady joke<>)....depends on if I could take her adorable-baby-piglet.jpg

    Ok. So I have 5 tons so far. (Pic below) I had 3 tons of barefoots delivered. I only have one stove (a harman p61a) and I don't own a truck, but I did haul 2 tons of various brands I wanted to try, 10-15 bags at a time in a Ford Fiesta :). Does that count?

    Yeah the 4.0Liter V6 get me 14mpg on a good day not hauling pellets. Throw it in 4x4 or strap a ton of pellets behind it and I can almost watch the gas gauge drop.
    Now I just installed another Harman P38+ at my son's house and I'm the lucky one that gets to haul his pellets! Will probably be hauling pellets for the next few weekends.

    Is it too late for an official application?

    Picked up my 3rd ton the other day in addition to a 1/2 ton left over from last season.

    Stove: Kozy Heat "Woodland" Pellet Stove w/EXCELPellet vent & OAK.
    Truck: 2010 Chevrolet Silverado. Every ton of pellets I've burned have been hauled with this and hand unloaded into the basement.
    My system: Back up to basement window. Setup a piece of plywood in basement to act as a slide. Place some bags on the tailgate. Toss bags through window. Re-stack the bags on pallets. Repeat for as long as necessary.

    Picture included.

    Not this season, but I burnt 2 tons of them last season. I like them and they are one of my favorite pellets. I get low ash and good heat. It also doesn't hurt that they are the best deal in the area (prior to any discounts) at $204/ton.
