Description Warranty Information


The WoodMaxx DC-1260 is a self-feeding gasoline engine powered wood chipper that features a large 12" x 6" infeed opening and can handle material up to 4" in diameter. 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. Optional electric start is also available as an upgrade.

Awsome Chipper May 20, 2019
Reviewer: William R. from Dushore, PA United States  
This machine is well built and eats branches up and spits them out into chips approx. 1/2" to 1" in size. No need to trim long branches down as the auto feed chute works great and pulls branches of any length right through. It also chips branches up to 4" diam  without missing a beat. The optional electric start is a nice feature and  glad I got the extended wheel base for greater stability on uneven ground. Great customer service and the chipper arrived in 10 business days. There was quite a bit of assembly required but I had it together and ready to use in about an hour. I have already recommended the WoodMaxx chipper and to two of my friends.

Excellent Machine for mid scale jobs May 15, 2019
Reviewer: MIC MARYANSKI from Hudson, WI United States  
Machine performs as promised, though chipping of green brush and small trees is easier than chipping of dry dead wood.  Engine boasts plenty of power for chipping to 3-4 inch range.  Easiest use is long straight members for chipping, which will go straight through in a single effort, but have a short saw handy for curved branches.
Things I would improve - send units with inflated tires, provide bolts and hardware of all the same size, and perhaps a larger hopper opening to allow  for larger "brush" size.  The machines self feed action is often overcome by friction of the brush at the top of the hopper, which causes one to have to force the feed for chipping.  Still, a 5/5 star rating!

Awesome!!! May 6, 2019
Reviewer: Sam from Houston, MO United States  
I have 300 acres of most wooded property and started clearing some underbrush along the road to the house, when the DC-1260 arrived. Although the very good assembly instructions state you need two people to complete the assembly, I was able to do it with just me very safely. Easy assembly if you follow the instructions. I had worked two days clearing brush and took the DC-1260 to grind away. Be sure to clean the 4 inch stuff as the limbs will cause feed problems. Took me about 4 hours to completely grind two days of chain saw work and generate three mounds about 3 foot tall and 6 wide, which I will use in various places around the house, shop and barn. Great piece of machinery and does not use a lot of gas to do the job. Highly recommend the DC-1260!

Great product! May 6, 2019
Reviewer: Chip n Dale from Kelowna, BC Canada  
This is a fantastic chipper! First, some not so good observations: While I paid for tailgate delivery to my home the shipper would not deliver it and I had to pick it up at the transport terminal. Second, the crate was damaged as has been the case for many reviewers. It seems the product is not bolted to the crate pallet and all 500 lbs shifts around With no internal padding! Fortunately is was only scratched paint and some torn decals which the company will address with free touch up paint and decals.
On the plus side, the machine is very well made and sturdy. The engine fires up on the first pull every time and has more than enough power to chip 4 inch stock. That said, the greener the better as it does bog down on dry wood which does not feed automatically like the green stuff does.
Customer service is responsive and pleasant and I look forward to many years of brush clearing with his tool. Oh, and the free shipping anywhere in the US and Canada is a real bonus! Thanks Woodmaxx!

Excellent customer customer May 6, 2019
Reviewer: Tim Davis from Grass Valley , CA United States  
Received my chipper today assembled in about an hour. This makes getting rid of the limbs so much easier. I feel a lot safer since the fires here in California and outdoor burning is getting sketchy. Shipping company was excellent, I am very satisfied with my purchase. Thank You WoodMaxx.
