Weighing in at 408 lbs. this drum style chipper is equipped with a Professional grade Briggs & Stratton XR2100 gasoline engine that boasts 13.5 HP and 21.00 ft./lbs. of torque.

DC-1260 Gas Engine Powered Wood Chipper February 12, 2018
Reviewer: Rick Miller from United States  
This wood chipper is perfect for what we were looking for. We use this to grind brush and saplings in a walking trail we are cutting, and the chips are perfect for walking trail bedding.

Great chipper January 12, 2018
Reviewer: Casey Lokan from Live Oak, FL United States  
Let me start with one thing that bothered me. The only flaw I have found is the safety shutoff switch is way to sensitive. If you throw in a branch and while the blades are pulling it in, it will some times hit the switch and shut the machine off. As far as performance I am extremely happy with the chipper and would recommend to anyone. I have only had it a couple weeks but I am extremely satisfied.

DC-1260 Gas powered Chipper December 22, 2017
Reviewer: Bruce from Aguanga, CA United States  
I'm very impressed with the quality of this chipper. It arrived complete and with no damage. I like the fact that for assembly most of the bolts are in place where they go instead of just coming in a bag and having to sort them. This is going to be so much better than renting a chipper so i can do the chipping at my convenience. I won't be wasting time driving to and from the rental yard. I would  recommend this chipper to anyone in the market for an affordable chipper..

DC-1260e December 22, 2017
Reviewer: Ed C from Prague, OK United States  
I received the wood chipper a day earlier than the freight company said, but that worked out ok.  

Assembly was straight-forward and I was able to do everything myself except get it off the pallet base, and I was warned of that in the installation guide.  A couple of items could be better clarified in the instructions, but I've already notified WoodMaxx of those items.

The machine fired up the first time, feeds itself beautifully, and makes such quick work of the brush!  

The axle extensions are great, as our property is rather rough and they make traversing the area easy and stable.

I did have to call customer service with one question during assembly and they were knowledgeable, friendly, and resolved my question promptly.

Thank you WoodMaxx!

Worth it! October 30, 2017
Reviewer: Randy from Yankee Hill, CA United States  
The DC-1260 has no peers. USA made knives, Briggs & Stratton engine, rectangular steel axles, the wheel extenders, & the heavy-duty support stand! Even the loading chute is very heavy!
After adjusting the knife gap I put the DC-1260 to work. I went through two piles of manzanita. Most of it  +/-2 inch? size range, & the DC-1260 had no problem with these.
The belt cover is held by 4 bolts & they have to be completely removed to get the cover off. Slotted holes would be nice.
The chute gaskets are difficult to keep in place. A few small dots of Shoe Goo got them to stay put.
Unless you live on level ground, get the wheel extenders!
If the safety bar stops the motor, be sure to clear the feed chute before restarting. If you have a jam, use a long, stiff branch as a lever to rotate the drum in reverse to clear the jam before restarting the engine.
Spending this much on a piece of equipment was a bit worrisome, but after today I am sure I made the right choice.
