    Up date on my impressions went to Lowe's last week for something and you know what [ most of you with the sickness can relate ] the pellet voices start going off in your head "we're in the garden area come look at us" so I did soo 10 bags of Timber Heats found their way on my truck. Clean stove put Heats in the hopper.

    Not as many fines in this batch, pellets were more normal length, burning hot ,colder outside now than my 1st test. Maybe a bit more ash than 1st batch. Bottom line if you see them try them.

    i've burned about 30 bags of Timber Heats.... i've found the same thing. lots of small pellet lengths in most of the bags. I had to adjust settings for this, i was burning through pellets like crazy. But since i've adjusted, much better. These were the first pellets i've burned in my new stove, i have 3 tons of SETS to burn next, so i'll give you a comparison when i get to them.

    I picked up 20 bags at my local Lowes. I'm very impressed with the heat output. A little dirty however. Short pellets. I'm not sure if they are softwood or hardwood. It doesn't say anything on the bag. I definitely feel they burn hotter than Green Team and Green Supreme. One sign that they burn hotter is the top of my stove is warm when usually it is cool.

    I purchased 5 bags at lowes in October and they had black pieces mixed in looked like plastic so I used them for my fire pit just my observation

    I burned about 5 bags back in Dec. They are the same pellet as Dry Creek, and I really liked them. If Lowes has them again this year, I'd have no problem using them.

    They are pretty good pellets...only thing is they fed very fast for me, which gave me too much heat on my lowest setting.

    I don't argue with the sign on the stack of pellets. It said $4.18/bag if you buy 50 or more. Also came up that price on the register.

    Bought 3 tons of the Timber Heats and had them delivered by Loews. Have not burned any yet though. But I did have to return 9 bags from the 3 pallets due to water damage. One bag was so saturated with water that it was like a cement block. All of the damaged bags were from the bottom of the stack. What ever company is making these needs to rethink how they are wrapping the stacks, especially around the bottom of the pallets. I really need four tons to get through the winter and I'm thinking that I will off load the entire pallet right there in the parklng lot at Lowes so if some of the bottom bags are wet, I can exchange them right there. Glad to hear that overall people are happy with the Timber Heats.

    It's not how they are wrapped it's the morons running the fork lift who pook holes in the bottom bags
