WoodMaxx ™ MX-8800 HYDROSTATIC AUTO-FEED WOOD CHIPPER
The WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 hydrostatic auto-feed chipper is a robust self-feeding PTO
wood chipper. This wood chipper is extremely compact, and built to withstand
commercial use. The hydrostatic drive system infeed roller will grab and pull
material into the chipper head using a powerful hydrostatic pump & motor combination. The hydraulic motor
is powered by the chippers’ self-contained hydrostatic pump and reservoir. 2-High
quality (A8 tool steel) made in the USA knives are standard equipment on all
MX-series wood chippers. The design of the WoodMaxx™ MX-series chipper is so
unique and innovative that it is now patent pending.

LBS 24.5” DIAMETER FLYWHEEL – IDEAL WEIGHT
MX-8800 wood chippers use a 24.5" dynamically balanced 200 pound flywheel
to deliver the energy to quickly and easily chip all types of material.
Competitors use a wide range of flywheel weights, but through thorough testing
and experimentation, WoodMaxx™ has discovered that the 200 pound 24.5” flywheel is
ideal for this size wood chipper
MADE IN USA KNIVES
All WoodMaxx™ MX-series wood chippers are equipped with made in USA chipper knives and made in USA Holo-Krome class 12.9 knife bolts. Designed for extreme duty – there is no better material that can be used for superior performance and life than our through hardened, heat treated, high chromium, high carbon, A-8 tool steel knives.
2 DUAL EDGE REVERSIBLE CHIPPER KNIVES
WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 wood chipper comes standard with two reversible dual edge
knives installed. The reversible knives mean that you get twice the work out of
one set of knives! These knives are securely bolted into a pocket that is
milled in the flywheel using American made Holo-Krome bolts for added security,
this design utilizing a new flywheel pocket design developed by WoodMaxx™. This
eliminates knife and bolt breakage that can be found on other dual edge knife
systems. WoodMaxx chipper knives are made right here in upstate New York of hardened, high
carbon A-8 tool steel.
Designed for extreme duty – there is no better material that can be used for superior performance and life than our through hardened, heat treated, high chromium, high carbon, A-8 tool steel knives.
SELF-CONTAINED HYDROSTATIC INFEED DRIVE SYSTEM
pending design the WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 wood chippers are complete with a
self-contained hydrostatic pump that requires only a two quart oil reservoir
tank to power the infeed motor. Unlike a standard hydraulic system, a
hydrostatic drive system is so powerful that it is the same type of drives
system that is used to drive bulldozers, trains, excavators, skid steers, and
even ride on lawn mowers. These hydrostatic systems use standard 10W-40 motor
oil, a spin on oil filter and are so efficient, generate so little heat, that they require only a
fraction of the reserve oil as a standard hydraulic drive system. This type of
system also allows for complete speed control from 1 RPM to a full 75 ft./min.
with full power through the entire speed range. The Hydro-static drive system on the
WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 is so unique to the industry that it is now Patent Pending.
Hydraulic remotes are not required from your tractor. The hydrostatic motor is
a standard SAE 2 hole “A” mount. What does this mean to you? Down the road if
there is a need to replace the motor, it can be found just about anywhere.
Please note, you will need at least 20 horsepower at the PTO to operate this
HOUR METER –
NEW FOR 2016
MX-series wood chippers are now equipped with a convenient tachometer/ hour
meter. The tachometer allows the operator to see the actual RPM of the flywheel
to ensure that the chipping head is running at the optimal recommended speed.
Proper flywheel speed is important to develop the inertia required to chip hard
material and evacuate the chamber effectively. The hour meter is helpful to
ensure that proper maintenance intervals are kept in accordance with WoodMaxx
recommendations. This all-weather meter is water proof and weather tight.
"WHITE" BRAND HYDRAULIC MOTOR
WoodMaxx™ MX-series wood chippers are equipped with USA “White drive products” brand
hydraulic infeed motors. White is renowned for their high-quality American
engineered hydraulic motors.
HEIGHT INFEED BIN
WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 PTO Wood chipper attachment is equipped with a comfortable table
height infeed bin. This allows the user ergonomic feeding of material.
8” x 8” INFEED OPENING
The WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 wood chipper offers a large 8”x 8” infeed opening to easily accept
those crooked branches. This is the largest infeed opening available of any
PTO wood chipper in its class.
THICK FLYWHEEL HOUSING
The WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 PTO wood chipper is manufactured using heavy gauge 1/4” thick (American
Standard A-36) structural steel plate for the flywheel housing. Since the
flange bearings are mounted on the flywheel housing, this gives added strength
MX-series wood chipper knives can be changed easily by one person in as little
as 10 minutes. The entire top of the blower housing opens like a clam shell.
This allows for easy access to the flywheel and knife changing. Other chippers
require you to reach into the infeed bin to hold the head of the bolt, while
someone else turns the nut from the backside of the flywheel
DUTY 5/8” COGGED DRIVE V-BELTS
MX-series wood chippers are equipped with five extreme duty 5/8” wide cogged drive
v-belts that are made specifically for WoodMaxx™. Cogged V-belts run cooler,
and transfer more torque than plain smooth V-belts. Although the OEM belts are
very high quality, if the need arises, the standard size BX belts allows you to
purchase replacement v-belts at any auto parts store. Other chippers use 15mm
belts—try to find those in the USA!
AUTO FEED STOP BAR & INFEED ROLLER SPEED ADJUSTMENT
is paramount on WoodMaxx™ wood chippers. Located on the top of the infeed bin,
the MX-8800 utilizes an easy to activate hydrostatic auto-feed stop safety bar
to disengage the infeed roller in case of an emergency, or to clear the
infeed bin if necessary. Simply pull the bar forward to increase the speed,
and push it forward to decrease or reverse the in-feed speed and direction. The
hydrostatic drive system is so refined that the in-feed speed is fully
adjustable from 0-75 ft./min.
MX-8800 wood chippers are the perfect combination of size, weight, and
features. Compact enough to easily move around, yet strong enough to get the
tough jobs done. MX-series chippers are loaded with features typically found on
much larger commercial machines that are much more expensive. The strength of
our machines starts with using heavy formed (American standard A-36) structural
steel plate, the strongest plate steel available. Each piece is laser cut, on a
precision CO2 laser and meticulously welded by highly skilled American welders.
WoodMaxx™ MX-series chipper exclusive structural design includes a 2” diameter
main shaft that passes through the flywheel housing and is supported by two flange bearings. This feature, combined with the 2” shaft, allows the
flywheel to run true and adds a great deal of strength. This design sets WoodMaxx™
chippers far apart from the competition, and it is a design feature you should
not overlook when shopping for a chipper.
MX-8800 wood chippers are extremely robust, and can handle very heavy use.
Designed and manufactured in upstate New York, each machine we offer is
thoroughly tested on our 18 acre proving grounds before being offered to the
public. With years of experience and thousands of machines in service today, we
are confident that this machine can handle even the toughest projects that you
have. Our machines are currently in service in several commercial applications,
such as: the Army Corps of Engineers, college campuses, municipalities, tree
farms, golf courses, apartment complexes, and thousands of residences.
WoodMaxx™ chippers are also represented around the globe, with machines as far
away as Hawaii, and Alaska, as well as several countries including: Chile,
Russia, Panama, Colombia, Poland, United Arab Emirates, Israel, west Africa,
Greece, Norway, Iceland, Ecuador, Honduras, Ireland and of course Canada.
DIAMETER HARDENED STEEL COMMERCIAL STYLE
INFEED ROLLER – WoodMaxx ™ EXCLUSIVE
WoodMaxx™ exclusive and patent pending design. Everyone knows what happens to the
branches when they reach the flywheel knives of the wood chipper, but getting
the material to pull into the wood chippers effectively and quickly is the
trick. Many factors must be considered when designing an effective infeed
roller system: the overall diameter, knife spacing, tooth angle, type of steel,
hardness, down pressure and infeed speed. After countless hours of research and development on
the infeed system, for the MX-8800 we have developed a large diameter (8”)
infeed roller. This exclusive design allows the chisel shaped teeth of the
roller to grab and climb up and over the branches to easily bite in and
effectively pull the material into the wood chipper flywheel at speeds up to 75
ft. /min. In short, the larger the roller, the easier it rolls over the material.
The smaller the roller, the more likely it is to slip and spin on the branches.
Similar to how the small wheels of a shopping cart stop when contacting a small
stone in a parking lot. WoodMaxx™ MX-series auto-feed wood chippers utilize
high carbon steel chisel tooth infeed rollers. This type of infeed roller is
typically found on much larger, much more expensive commercial machines.
prevent material like tree bark and leaves from impacting between the teeth of
the infeed roller, we spaced the chisel teeth out. This spacing allows the
complete down pressure of the high-tension gas springs to be focused on one
chisel tooth at a time increasing total down pressure. Additionally, this
spacing allows the roller to self-clean. These rollers, along with the high-tension
gas springs aggressively bite into any type of material. After welding, these
rollers are hardened to ensure that the teeth stay sharp for many years to
come. The advantage of this type of roller is that is aggressively grabs any size
limb with or without leaves up to 8”. Long or short needle pine, as well as
small, vine type material is no problem for the WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 wood chipper.
Small branches, leaves, or vines won’t wrap around the infeed roller as they
would on other wood chippers. The exclusive advanced design of our infeed
rollers is a feature that should not be overlooked when shopping for a wood
chipper. Our infeed roller designs are so unique and effective that they are
now patent pending.
SWIVEL DISCHARGE CHUTE
– WoodMaxx ™ EXCLUSIVE
WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 PTO wood chipper is equipped with a 360 degree swivel
discharge chute. With easy two finger operation, we have incorporated a
convenient handle that effortlessly allows you to swivel the discharge chute
360 degrees so that you can direct the chips into a trailer or the back of a
pickup truck without having to move the entire machine. Simply push down on the
handle and swing the chute, when you release the handle a spring-loaded pin drops down to lock the chute into position. No tools required.
– WoodMaxx ™ EXCLUSIVE
hydrostatic pump belt tensioner is automatic on the MX-8800 wood chipper. This
feature keeps consistent and correct pressure on the drive belt. If the drive
belt is too tight then excessive bearing and or pump failure is likely. If it's too
loose, the belt will slip. This feature eliminates the need to adjust the
belt, ensures that proper tension is achieved, and increases the longevity of
the pump and bearings. It also saves you the hassle of constant adjustment.
FOOTPRINT SUPPORT BASE
of the extreme weight of this chipper, we have provided for a wide footprint
base that distributes the weight of the chipper over a larger area to prevent
it from sinking into soft ground during operation.
FLOW FLYWHEEL CHAMBER VENTILATION
– WoodMaxx ™ EXCLUSIVE
MX-series wood chippers incorporate a series of precisely located ventilation
holes in the flywheel chamber. This feature creates a strong vacuum that draws air
into the flywheel chamber and in combination with the fan blades on the back of
the flywheel forcefully ejects the wood chips out of the chamber. This keeps
the discharge chute clear, and reduces the chances of a jam. The WoodMaxx™
patent pending hole pattern is specifically designed to bring the air into the
chamber at the optimal volume and location. Other machines have tried to copy
this feature, but have not achieved the same results!
STANDARD HOSE FITTINGS
WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 wood chipper utilizes JIC (joint industrial council) hose
fittings that are rated for 5000 psi. For you this means that if you ever need
to replace a hydraulic hose, that your local tractor supply or auto parts store
can make hoses while you wait. JIC fittings are widely used in hydraulic fluid
transfer, the military, and are typically very easy to come by. No trying to
chase down an adapter because of mismatched threads.
SHAFT SUPPORTED BY TWO INDUSTRIAL FLANGE BEARINGS
2” main shaft on the MX-8800 PTO wood chipper passes through the flywheel
housing and is supported by two industrial flange bearings. This feature,
combined with the 2” shaft, allows the flywheel to run extremely true, while
adding a great deal of strength. Competing machines use a 1-3/4” shaft in
conjunction with two pillow block bearings, and the flywheel is cantilevered
beyond these bearing. With this setup, there is a possibility of breaking a
bearing housing if the machine jams.
ROLLER TENSION GAS SPRINGS
WoodMaxx™ MX-series wood chipper utilizes high tension gas springs. These gas
springs maintain the same tension throughout the entire range of motion. This
feature also slows and dampens the downward motion of the infeed roller to
prevent the infeed roller from slamming downward ultimately increasing the
longevity of the components. These high-tension gas springs achieve 175 lbs. of
downward force that allows the teeth of the infeed roller to dig into the
branches and ensure a smooth entry into the chipper head.
MX-8800…850lbs of American made steel!
RESISTANT POWDER COAT
The WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 is finished with a powder coating that is baked on at 450 degrees. Powder coating finish is thicker and more durable than ordinary paint. Additionally, prior to powder coating the steel is prepared by shot blasting, (similar to sand blasting but with steel shot instead) which slightly scuffs and textures the steel to provide for a superior bonding surface. This is a more costly process but is superior to simply chemically cleaning the steel as most other will do.
VINYL CHIP BAFFLE
is paramount, therefore the WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 is equipped with a clear vinyl
baffle feature that protects the user from chip blow-back, while allowing the
user to see what is going on in the hopper.
HYDRAULIC HOSE CONFIGURATION
hydraulic hose configuration for the WoodMaxx™ Mx-9900 requires only two streamlined hydraulic hoses. This is possible because of the patent pending
upgraded hydrostatic drive system that eliminates many of the components and
hoses of traditional open hydraulic systems. This feature makes future
maintenance a breeze.
PROTECTIVE HYDRAULIC HOSE WRAP
with the simple two hose configuration, the MX-8800 includes the additional
protection of nylon hydraulic hose wrap for long life. This hose wrap reduces
chaffing and protects the hoses from abrasion and environmental damages.
The WoodMaxx™ MX-8800 wood chipper comes with a standard imported PTO shaft. For an
additional $150 you can upgrade to a premium quality USA made PTO shaft if
purchasing with the chipper. When purchased separately, the USA PTO shaft will
be $250. Have a quick hitch? The USA PTO shaft is compatible, or ask about our
longer imported PTO shaft
