Is it the crate of kiln dried beech for €169.95 that people are ordering from C&D/TJ O'Mahonys? 450kg.
Their 5 x 10kg bags are almost as good value. Works out 50kg for €20. That would be €180 for 450kg, but you don't have to commit to the large size.

That's not bad at all as I don't have space for a big pallet to be honest, will probably pick up a few bags so

Is that a 10kg bag or 10 kg of dried wood in a bag?

Tinner that seems excellent value provided it is a 1m3 crate and not a ton bag and it is the ash and oak they promise. €199 is the cheapest this thread has thrown up for a 1m3 crate so €180 delivered sounds a great price.

Looks like a great deal but clarify what hardwood it is and how it has been dried. If air seasoned check it has been at least a year drying, otherwise the logs could be full of moisture and they will not burn well or hot enough.

Some body gave me two bags of kiln dried Bord Na Mona fire logs before for Christmas, just left thim in the shed as had no immediate need for them. Opened them this morning to find moss still on some of the cut logs..... Put the moistiure meter on and gave reading of ove 50 per cent moisture. How the fcuk can Bord na Mona sell these as Kiln dried as still have moss growing on them or am I missing something?????

Very much doubt (hope) they wouldn't sell anything above 20% as kiln-dried. Much more likely that someone stored them outdoors for s period. IE the reseller. Air dried wood sitting a year would be down to 30ish.

There in plastic Bord Na Mona bags, moss evident on logs seem to suggest it was never near a kiln. Even if they were stored outside the plastic would protect a bit against the moisture. These look freshly cut to me. I know if I had bought them, they would be going straight back. Some one is chancing there arm.


These are what they look like.https://www.topline.ie/plumbing-heat...-hardwood-logs
Not saying anything against Topline, no idea where the person who gave them to me got them
