    looking to get an idea on pricing / availability of pellets in the greater akron ohio area. am doing a donor install in august and am looking to see what i will need for pellets expense wise, and i need to know if i need to wire money ahead to the donor reciepient to purchase the pellets , i'd really not like to have to ship or carry fuel from here in Va up there if i can avoid it.

    any input would be appreciated.

    My friend just bought his at the Ravenna Ohio Tractor Supply store. They had a special $179.00 a ton. The problem is that delivery is not available. Lowes offered delivery last year, but wanted $250.00 a ton. Most of the stores (Home Depot and Lowes) do not have their pellets available until September. Some of the local dealers have offered pre-orders but are having trouble getting shipment. If you can find them, delivery will be your biggest issue.

    Seen the plant and shook the hand of the guy that designed my stove. Only thing I missed was the stamping room and seeing sparks fly. I'll catch that part some day maybe.

    The next stove will be the pellet stove to go in the fireplace where the 30 hangs out. I am feeling the end of the days I can whack those trees and lug them up the hill coming up real soon. Getting old was fun. Being old sucks.

    well corie did an insert version of the EP, looks sharp but the BTU output isnt quite on par with that 30, i'll see if i can dig up a picture of it , i have a few from the atlanta show that show it in a "mock up" that the maintenance guys built for the show, it actually looks pretty authentic even though its wood, they found a spray that looks like granite or somthing , pretty kool stuff.


    here's the pic...
