Heating Pellet Selection

HeaterBitz LLC features quality wood pellets from Rib Mountain Bio. All are produced right here in Central Wisconsin.

All pellets come in 40 lb. bags/ 50 bags per one ton pallet. We sell by the bag or the ton. TRY a few bags, and see if this isn't a better product.

Special Order Super Sacks!

If you have a forklift, skidsteer or loader with the capacity to lift and move a ton of pellets at once this may be something to consider. With a bit of lead time, I can bring in pellets in large totes, or super sacks. They can be unloaded a shovel full at a time or with a suitably sized pail. Pricing is $10/ton under the price of those pellets in the 40 lb bags.

Rib Mountain Bio

I have been selling these premium pellets since 2012, and folks keep coming back for more. RMB uses the CLEAR bags… you always SEE exactly what you're getting.


BLEND is a mix of hardwood and softwood sawdust that makes a great burning pellet for most any stove. Awesome quality and value!


RMB Softwood is a premium pellet, giving the most BTUs per ton. Softwood is produced as time and availability of ingredients become available. Call for availability.

Wood Pellets - Hardwood or Softwood?

Wood Pellets

Left to Right: Hardwood Pellets and Softwood Pellets

Many people believe hardwoods are superior, since hardwood logs do burn better than softwood logs. This is not necessarily the case when raw material is processed to form wood pellets. Hardwood logs are much drier than softwood logs and the low moisture content results in a hotter, cleaner burn. But, in the process of manufacturing pellets - whether softwood or hardwood - the moisture content of the wood is reduced to a narrow range of approximately 4%.

Once the moisture has been removed, the two remaining components of the pellet are cellulose (wood fiber) and resin (sap, which is essentially a natural oil). Cellulose has the same heating value, whether originating in softwood or hardwood form. Resin has a higher heating value than cellulose and the resin content of softwoods is higher than that of hardwoods. Therefore, softwood pellets burn hotter than hardwood pellets, and give a bit higher heating value (BTU's) per pound.

Heating values are difficult to differentiate across almost all pellets; as a result, what consumers tend to care most about is ash content. The main factors that impact ash content are the cleanliness of the raw material (tree bark and other impurities) and the quality of the manufacturing process.
