Can't comment as I have never even heard of one. Does it dry any other wood or just mountain wood?  :D  Sorry, I couldn't resist. Tell me more about this kiln if you don't mind.

the company is called mountain firewood kilns. they are out of new hampshire. the company says you can dry green firewood in 3 to 5 days using a boiler. i just wanted to know if anyone has used one or what they have herd about them.

Sounds a little too good to be true.

Wasn't  there a guy a few years ago that kilned his firewood for a short period of time then got busted as the interior moisture came out?

Looked at their site, looks good. Maybe too good. Would not want to say.

Welcome aboard anyhow. Pull up a stump and have a seat.

  • Best way to make the most money with a portable mill is to cut the least lumber you can.

Ohh my gosh!
I didn't know it was illegal to let the interior moisture out,,  crud, I've been doing that for years.
(sorry, I couldn't resist either) :D

But to APF- What size dryer are you needing?  Unless its huge, I'd consider building one, especialy if you mill.
Track load, roll in an end door, ground recycled styrofoam insulated, wood fired water heat is easy to make and very safe  (sans steam pressure).

Before I say much at all I should announce to all concerned that I work for a company that makes lumber, pallet, & firewood kilns (not Mountain).  The reason for my comment here is that I wanted to post a link to help anwser basic questions about drying firewood, the energy required, et al.  It is a very good website to answering questions that regard drying of just about any wood product.

http://www.kiln-direct.com/content/firewoodenergy/index.html 

Mountain has been around for some years-they have recently joined up with another Lumber kiln company to raise their visability.  My only N.B. is that anyone considering kilning firewood really do their homework in terms of BTU's needed to dry firewood properly- as some folks seem to be underpowered in the criticial energy production and transfer capability (BTU) versus their claims of realisitc drying times.
