Pellets made entirely of compressed leaves. Made using the Chinese 150mm Pellet mill. The leaves were simply raked into a pile, fed through a yard-machines chipper/shredder and then fed directly into the pellet mill. The moisture content of the relatively newly fallen leaves (on the ground for 6-7 days), appears to be about perfect for pressing the pellets. We did not have to add any additional water or any kind of binder, as the newly fallen leaves contain a good amount of “lignin”, which acts as a natural binder to hold the leaf pellets together and form a nice shiny edge on the extruded pellets.

    Where are you. I’m in New haven and would like to check this thing out if you’re willing to show it.

    @nicenonya3 I bet this stove is big enough to heat over 2000 SF. The stove in the video has a pretty substantial flame and is putting out considerable heat.

    Does it burn any diffrently than wood?
    like the burn hours per load?

    Pellet stoves don’t seem to have near as much flame or heat, as what I get with my 5100 Quadrafire ,and burning big logs.That might work ok heating a big room ,or a small house.

    @lodcomm Did you modify the burn pot?

    I had a Breckwell pellet stove years ago and loved it, but moved and didn’t take it with me. It had a large ash well at he bottom of it which I used to clean out once a week. It ran almost day and night except when it had to be cleaned out. Do you have a similar ash bin setup on your stove? Large capacity? Do the leaves have an odor much different than the wood pellets? Do the leaf pellets cause problems with any of the temperature sensors in the stove? And last.. does the glass fog up quicker?

    @jaryH3

    Actually, since it is a forced air system there is very little radiant heat emitted from the sides, and top. In fact, one can place their hand on any of the surfaces. It will be very “warm” but not hot enough to make you pull your hand away :)

    Wow, does the speaker like the heat?

    Hi Vents,

    Unfortunately there is too much metal-to-metal contact to attempt to put a pyro composition into it!

    Hi,

    Leaf material is very soft.. this 150mm mill at full speed can press out 300 lb /hr. So approximately 6 to 8 hours.

    So how long would it take you to make a ton of leaf pellets?

    @ventsi I dont know it seems like it has alot of metal grindiners and such, but I dunno.
