  3. Place a large box under the chute of the sawdust pellet mill to gather finished pellets.
  4. Feed the sawdust manually into the hopper of the pellet mill and wait for sawdust pellets falling into the large box.
  5. Leave the pellets in the box to cool for a few minutes. Then you can put them in bags and store them somewhere dry.
