They are bagged for Agway but what are they?

At one time I heard that the were Lignetics but I don't know if theat's still ,or was then,the case.
Thought maybe Maine Woods, but not really sure with them being 100% Hardwood.
lol....I thought these were made by Hamer.......
Thats what I heard. Some Agways have been rumored to be NEWP's but they ain't 100% hardwoods either! My moneys on them being Hamers and they are a nice pellet IMHO.
May I ask how much?
There's a place on 202 in Lebanon, Me that carries these. A guy that works there said New England Wood Pellets. But he didn't sound 100% positive.
They are $255.00/ton. I would like to figure out what exactly they are because this place is 3 miles from home and will have them year around. They told me they were 80/20 but clearly the bag says 100% hardwood.
Green Supreme is NEWP correct?
If they are 80/20 mix then they be NEWP's. Not a bad pellet, But not as hot or as clean as the Hamers. NEWP's are pretty much middle of the road average ish, Where Hamers are up the the scale a few notches(actually quite a few).
Try some, You'll know if they are Hamers as they will blast lots a heat at ya. NEWP's not so much. If they are NEWP's head to HD-Lowes-TSC and get the Green Supreme's for less. Usually they fetch $209ish per ton.
Keep us posted.
Where are Hamers from? I will ask the dealer if they can find out from the supplier whey are.
West Virginia. Plant is in Elkins IIRC. Office is in Kenova.
The Agway`s around here used to carry Dry Creek but that probably is meaningless.
they are wood pellets, says it right on the bag.......................
First thought was NEWP as well, but the 100% hardwood kind of nixed that thought
I burned agways last year and if they are the same ones I got they were junk imho. Lots of ash and not enough heat to justify it. However, they may be completely different from what I burned. I wouldn't commit to thirty tons until you try a few bags....as always...but I gave up on them after a ton. My experience may be completely irrelevant but just my .02.
Came home for Easter weekend to clean the stove after burning 20 bags of Green Supremes (which I will not do again) and an burning these mystery pellets now. Ran the stove on 3 for the last 24 hrs (burned 2 bags so far) and here are their pros/cons
Seem to burn very hot
Ash is pretty low so far
Bags are filled with fines/dust
Did you ask at store what they are or would they not tell you?
I'm not home right now but when I asked they really didn't know.
Even the Wife commented to me on the phone they are hotter than the Green Supremes
isn't most EVERYTHING hotter than the GS's though? lol
