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.

Commercial Quality in a Residential Unit October 23, 2017
Reviewer: Dave from Florida  
I purchased this wood chipper after the crank shaft literally broke from the direct drive of the inferior chipping blades of my big box store chipper.  I realized what I needed was a real wood chipper of commercial quality, but in a residential sized unit.  Enter the WoodMaxx DC-1260.  This unit has all the great features of a full sized commercial chipper, has a large feed opening, and uses a commercial type rotating drum to chip wood, which is belt driven.  It arrived very well packed, so well so, that it actually took me a bit of work to remove the protective crating it was shipped in, but well worth the effort.  Assembly was easy and I did opt for the wheel extenders, which I highly recommend you include in your purchase.  I added full synthetic oil for best protection, and then put it to use.  It worked extremely well, chipping through wood just like the professional tree service chippers.  This is by far the very best wood chipper for residential use on the market.

A step above the competition October 23, 2017
Reviewer: T Bean from Harleysville, PA United States  
Well worth the few extra dollars vs what you'd find in your Lowes/HD.  Was most interested in getting rid of branches less than 2" without having to spend half the day trimming them to fit a small feed chute.  Works great, wide throat in front of cutting knives means this machine pulls in whatever I have with no issues.  Perfect size for the homeowner looking for more than a chipper/shredder.

Best investment October 23, 2017
Reviewer: McKinnon from Delight, AR United States  
We have had our chipper less than a year, and we have chipped all kinds of tree branches for our BTE garden (which also cleans up the property). It performs like a champ every time. The chips are uniform and perfect for our purpose. Plus it is American made!!!
