Even if you were to by a 900kg pallet, Aldi is still cheaper.

I bought 30 boxes after buying one box to try them out last night. Very warm, very long lasting and easy to get going.

Enjoy.

30kgs works out at £9 for the offer I posted??? Sorry if I have read your post incorrectly.
I paid 4,99 for a pack of 4 of these so a good buy.

Post has been deleted now, I guess bootmet got his math wrong.

This is only the second time I have added something, out of interest, at what point are things made "HOT"?
sounds like a good deal, never tried them before but will see if my local Aldi have them in

Yeah, I bought some at that price both today and yesterday. I completed filled the car!

Whilst this is true, you need a saw as well as an axe...then it takes ages to chop up the wood. I got a chainsaw, but when you start it, people tend to ring the police. I'm going to need another plan.

Just a thought -maybe if you started your chainsaw near trees and not people would be a better plan

Price normally around a £4.50 a bag if you buy 12 bags or more but that said the bags are more like 20 kg and if your spend over £50 they deliver to your door form free - a big benefit if you buy in bulk like we do for winter.

http://www.logs2u.co.uk/heat-logs

However I will check in out tommorow if they have any left and compare for weight quality etc.

These give off little smoke creates hardly any ash and much better for your chimney vs burning logs or especially coal. My favoured fuel for our fire for sure aside from the fact they are made from waste wood dust so very good for the enviroment and obviously carbon neutral. So easy to store, start a fire and clean up vs coal and normal logs.

my maths makes it nearer a 60% saving. You can't really base it on the single box price of £10 delivered, as no one in their right mind would buy that - better to do the comparison on the 30 pack price.

Ahhh, the details.......... I promoted it like a supermarket would.

Anyway, it got your attention and whether it be 60% or 70%, it doesn't really matter, it's still a good deal.

There's no chainsaw scene in saw, someone clearly hasn't seen saw.
Why dont you compare real world price to what people actually buy - which is buy the bags in multiples of 12 or more. Per weight the bags have significantly more logs in them as well all be it irregular sizes (Actually better for building fires anyway).

You also have to factor in collecting these vs free delivery. 30 boxes = 300kg. Who can be bothered loading and unloading that sort of weight from your car when you can get similar quantities and more delivered free for less money weight wise.

I'm a complete novice to the Woodburner world, in fact, it was only installed this year but maybe people want logs which seem to have a lot of research behind them (http://www.ukheatlogs.co.uk/faq%27s.html)? How do we know all the logs are compressed to the same density? Maybe people don't want over 200kg's, maybe people want enough to crack on the open fire at Christmas and that's it? I don't know, all I know is what you have linked to is only a fraction cheaper and there is little to no information on them.

Finally, this is a pic of my woodburner in the dining room with 1.5 boxes chopped up ready for when I need it. It didn't take 2 mins to do and now I have my easy to stack pieces.

Yes mate, I know. We move it in the summer to give more room around the snooker table, but it will go back down as soon as someone other than the missus is about to help me move it.

Would burners seem a good idea as energy prices are set to exculate but I can see a time when wood burners become so popular that the cost of wood will rocket in comparison with gas. If you live in the country however these things are a no brainer.

Out of interest I currently have a gas fire fitted with back boiler. Can someone give me a run down on the cost and does it require a lot of rework?

That shows that you don't know much about wood burning. You don't burn green wood (except willow) as it doesn't give off much heat and it just tars up the chimney. Wood should have a moisture content of 20% or less before it is burnt then it provides the most heat.
I think this is a fantastic price for these logs and gets some heat from me. However......

Around here you can buy a pickup truck's worth of logs for around £125. which, having stacked a truck's worth, I reckon is about 2.5 cu m. That's about £50 per cu m. I don't know what the volume of these Aldi logs is, or whether the calorific content is comparable to logs, but the Homefire heat logs talked about earlier work out at about £225 per cu m, or about 350% more than logs.

So, these heat logs are great in small volumes for the occassional fire but I won't be buying any in volume!

I just did the maths as well and I came to the same conclusion! I've fanned the flames to this deal, as for smaller loads it's worth it.

If you want to bring 'real world' into the equation, the Homefire heat logs don't weigh nearer 20kg as they only come in 10kg bags.

12 bags or more Homefire Heat logs @£4.49 per 10kg bag is expensive.

You're getting well and truely taken to the cleaners, paying 45p/kg when buying larger quantities of 12+ bags.

Buy unbranded 10kg bags elsewhere for 24p/kg when buying 25 bags or 18p/kg when buying 50 bags...all prices include delivery.

I've spent £80 on these and have additional wood I have scavenged, so I will see how far into winter it gets us. The fire is not on all the time so my hopes are high. I understand seasoned wood is cheaper, but the size and convenience of this stuff is great, and if I manage to keep the fire going whenever I want it over the winter for £80 I will be more than happy.

I get offcuts from a friendly garden building supplier. I get them for free as it saves him a fortune if he has to dump them. So I have free renewable fuel too. At them moment I have more than twenty, one tonne bags stuffed to overflowing with offcuts.

Madda how do you get these before the go live date 4th November, never known Aldi to release products before their go live date. I have often gone in the day before and even though the signs are up showing new products they are not out on display and have been told to come back first thing in the morning where there as often been a queue for certain products. Which Aldi do you use?

I went to 2, both had them out the front of the shop. In fact, we got the first single trial back on Friday night.

Both stores were Cardiff/Newport area.
Thanks...Are they holding large stocks of them or do they only have a couple of dozen boxes. Having tried them are they worth the price compared to hardwood? How long does a typical log last giving out a decent heat,
