As the cost and price instability of  fuels keep growing, and as the environmental problems get worse and worse, the conversion from traditional fuel to green one is urgent. As one of the green fuel, biomass fuel gets huge market. The pellet production can provide affordable fuel, and chances for jobs and at same time ease the environment pressure by lowering the carbon emission.
More and more people start to make pellets for industrial purpose or household use. Then here comes the first and foremost question before start making wood pellets: how to buy a cost-effective pellet mill?
While in the international commercial wood pellet mill market, there are countless pellet mill manufacturers and suppliers. No matter where you are planning to buy a pellet mill, the following considerations need to be focused:
Quality comes first. Quality is the core of pellet production. At least, you need to choose a  certified pellet mill.
Cost is one of the decisive factor. Ideal situation would be buying proper pellet mill from the manufacturers or suppliers with the lowest price. Here you should pay attention, the proper pellet mill does not mean the best one. Other words, you should choose a pellet mill after considering your budget, the capacity for large, medium and small scale pellet production, pellets application ( for business or self use, for feed or fuel, for boiler or stoves, etc,), power condition ( electricity, gasoline, etc) and serving life, etc.
Pellet mill operation and utilization affects the purchasing of the pellet mills. If the machine is too complicated to be operated, it may cause extra expense, such as cost for operator training and potential cost of machinery maintenance and operator securing which may be caused by wrong operation.
After sale service and spare part supply are also important for choosing a pellet mill manufacture and suppler. It’s better to choose pellet mills from a manufacturer or supplier who could provide satisfactory after sale service and consistent spare part supply, any of your problem can be solved at a phone call or an email.
After these consideration, here comes the second question: where do you buy a pellet mill? You may find a local distributor from the business directory, that's ok, but as there is always a huge mark-up from the distributor and the after service cannot be guaranteed, I suggest you choose from internet.
