WM-8H WOOD CHIPPER IN ACTION


WM-8H CHIPPER ASSEMBLY VIDEO
WM-8H WOOD CHIPPER WALK-AROUND


NEW FOR SUMMER 2014

SLEAK HYDRALIC HOSE CONFIGURATION

The hydraulic hose configuration for the WM-8H has been streamlined to eliminate the possibility of snagging a hose and offers a sleek new look. CLICK HERE FOR PICTURE

NYLON PROTECTIVE HYDRAULIC HOSE WRAP

Along with the new hose configuration, the WM-8H now includes the additional protection of nylon hydraulic hose wrap for long life. This hose wrap reduces chaffing and protects the hoses from environmental damage. CLICK HERE FOR PICTURE

PRESSURE COMPENSATION FLOW CONTROL VALVE

The addition of this valve allows for very precise in-feed roller speed without causing back pressure on the hydraulic pump. This allows the user to regulate the speed of the in-feed rollers to exactly match their tractors capabilities while increasing the life of the hydraulic pump. CLICK HERE FOR PICTURE

WIDE FOOTPRINT SKID TYPE SUPPORT BASE

Because of its robust weight and to prevent the machine from sinking into the soft ground during operation, the new WM-8H offers a wide footprint skid type support base. This base is angle upward on the end to prevent digging into the ground while transporting. CLICK HERE FOR PICTURE


THE WOODMAXX™ WM-8H HYDRAULIC AUTO FEED CHIPPER…

The WoodMaxx™ WM-8H hydraulic auto-feed chipper is a robust self-feeding PTO wood chipper. This wood chipper is compact, yet built to withstand commercial use. Dual powered in-feed rollers grab and pull material into the chipper head using two powerful hydraulic motors. These motors are powered by the chippers’ self-contained hydraulic pump and tank. High quality (A8 tool steel) made in the USA knives are standard equipment on all WM-series wood chippers. The WoodMaxx™ WM-series chippers are so unique and innovative that they are now patent pending. Many attempts have been made to copy this machine, but there is only one WoodMaxx™! Check out these features:


STRENGTH IN DESIGN

WoodMaxx™ WM-series 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. WM-series chippers are loaded with features typically found on much larger commercial machines, that are much more expensive. The strength of our machines start with using heavy formed Q-235 (American standard A-36) structural steel plate; the strongest plate steel available. Each piece is CNC plasma cut, and meticulously welded. WoodMaxx™ WM-series chipper exclusive structural design includes a 2” diameter main shaft that passes through the flywheel housing and is supported by 3 bearings: 1 pillow block and 2 flange bearings. This feature, combined with the 2” shaft, allows the flywheel to run true and ads 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. CLICK HERE FOR BEARING TECH DRAWING

EXPERIENCE

WoodMaxx™ chippers are extremely robust, and can handle heavy use. Designed 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.

WOODMAXX™ FEATURES ALWAYS INCLUDE:

MADE IN USA KNIVES

All WoodMaxx™ WM-series chippers are equipped with made in USA 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 life and performance than our heat treated, through hardened, high carbon, high chromium, A-8 tool steel knives. .

DUAL EDGE REVERSIBLE CHIPPER KNIVES

WoodMaxx™ WM-series chippers come standard with reversible dual edge knives installed. This means you get twice the work out of one set of knives! These knives are bolted into a milled pocket in the flywheel, incorporating a new flywheel pocket design developed at WoodMaxx™. Unlike most other reversible knives, which are only held on by bolts, the flywheel on the WM-series chipper was redesigned to actually help to hold the knives on. This eliminates knife and bolt breakage that can be found on other dual edge knife systems. And, as always, these knives are made right in the USA of hardened, high carbon A-8 tool steel, right here in upstate New York.

6.25 DIAMETER HARDENED STEEL COMMERCIAL STYLE IN-FEED ROLLERS - WOODMAXX™ EXCLUSIVE

Another WoodMaxx™ exclusive! We all know what happens to the branches when they reach the flywheel, but getting the material to pull into the chippers quickly and effectively is the trick. Many factors come into play when designing an effective in-feed roller: the overall diameter, blade spacing, tooth angle, type of steel, hardness, down pressure and speed. After countless hours of R&D on the in-feed system, we have developed a large diameter (6.25”) in-feed roller that easily climbs up and grabs the branches to bite in and efficiently pull the material into the flywheel at up to 75 ft./min. 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. We equate this to the small wheels of a shopping cart stopping when it contacts a small stone in the parking lot. WoodMaxx™ auto feed chippers utilize in-feed rollers with high carbon steel chisel teeth. This type of in-feed roller is found on larger, much more expensive machines.

We have also spaced the teeth out to prevent material like leaves and bark from getting impacted between the teeth. This allows the roller to self-clean, and also allows the 165lbs of down pressure to focus on fewer teeth which increases the bite. These rollers, along with the high tension springs aggressively bite into any type of material. After welding, these rollers are induction 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 up to 8” with or without leaves. Small, vine type material as well as long or short needle pine is no problem for the WoodMaxx™ WM series chipper. Vines, leaves, and small branches won’t wrap around the roller as they would on other chippers. The advanced design of our in-feed rollers is a feature that should not be overlooked when shopping for a wood chipper. Our in-feed roller designs are so effective and unique that we now have patents pending. CLICK HERE FOR PICTURE

QUICK HITCH READY – WOODMAXX™ EXCLUSIVE

All WoodMaxx™ WM-series chippers are now category 1 quick hitch compatible. WoodMaxx™ is the only PTO chipper that works with quick hitch (**John Deere I-match requires a special top link that we make for this purpose, please call to specify if you need this). Save time by never leaving the seat of your tractor to link up with the WM-series chipper. Attaching the chipper to your quick hitch takes only seconds. Check out our video tab to see the quick hitch in action! No quick hitch? No problem. The chipper will easily attach to a standard 3pt hitch, just back in and insert the pins. No need to force the draw arms of your tractor around the draw pins (as with many other implements). CLICK HERE FOR PICTURE. CLICK HERE FOR A VIDEO.

EASY SWIVEL DISCHARGE CHUTE: WOODMAXX™ EXCLUSIVE

360 degrees of rotation and 2 finger operation. We have incorporated a convenient handle that effortlessly allows you to swivel the discharge chute so that you can direct the chips into the back of a truck or trailer 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. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE CLICK HERE FOR A VIDEO

AUTOMATIC BELT TENSIONER – WOODMAXX™ EXCLUSIVE

The automatic belt tensioner on the WM-8H hydraulic pump drive belt keeps consistent pressure on the belt. If the drive belt is too tight then excessive bearing and or pump failure is likely, too loose and 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. Also saves you the hassle of constant adjustment. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

ADJUSTABLE BASE LEGS

You asked for it and we delivered! In 2012 WoodMaxx™ developed the first adjustable chipper base legs. These adjustable legs will help accommodate a larger variety of tractors. This innovation allows you to more easily meet the required PTO shaft angle (less than 15 degrees) on larger tractors. Simply insert the adjustable legs, and then slide the pin into the hole for your required leg height. WoodMaxx™ chippers are able to accommodate tractors that have a PTO height from 18” to 30” high. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE.

HIGH FLOW FLYWHEEL CHAMBER VENTILATIOIN – WOODMAXX™ EXCLUSIVE

WoodMaxx™ WM-series 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 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! CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

JIC STANDARD HOSE FITTINGS

The WoodMaxx™ WM-8H wood chipper utilizes JIC (joint industrial council) hose fittings and hoses 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. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

200 LBS FLYWHEEL – IDEAL WEIGHT

WoodMaxx™ chippers use a 200lbs flywheel to deliver the energy to deftly chip all types of material. Competitors use a wide range of flywheel weights, but through thorough testing and experimentation, WoodMaxx™ has discovered that the 200lbs flywheel is ideal.

HEAVY DUTY CAST STEEL BEARING HOUSING

Three heavy duty cast steel bearings support the main shaft, which passes through the flywheel housing, and is supported on either side by flange bearings. This heavy duty, shock resistant cast steel bearings are much more durable than cast iron—a unique feature of the WoodMaxx™ chipper. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

MAIN SHAFT SUPPORTED BY 3 BEARINGS

The 2” main shaft on the WM-series chipper passes through the flywheel housing and is supported by 1 pillow block and 2 flange bearings. This feature, combined with the 2” shaft, allows the flywheel to run truer, and adds a great deal of strength. Other chippers use a 1-3/4” shaft, 2 pillow block bearings, and the flywheel is cantilevered beyond the bearing. With this setup, there is a possibility of breaking a bearing housing the machine jams. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE.

SELF CONTAINED HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

WoodMaxx™ WM-8H chippers are complete with a self-contained hydraulic pump and a 38l/7 gallon reservoir tank to power the 2 in-feed motors. Hydraulics are not required from your tractor. Hydraulic motors are 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 19 horsepower at the PTO to operate this machine. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

VARIABLE SPEED DUAL HYDRAULIC IN-FEED MOTORS

Variable speed (0-75ft. /min) aggressive dual counter-rotating hydraulic powered in-feed rollers work together to pull material into the chipper head. This feature allows the user to slow the in-feed speed down to accept large material. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

FULLY ADJUSTABLE IN-FEED ROLLER TENSION SPRINGS

The WoodMaxx™ WM-series chipper utilizes high tension springs in conjunction with a unique adjustment mechanism that offers a full range of variable down pressure, since all branches are different – some soft and some hard. This feature allows the user to increase to decrease the upper roller down pressure to suit the situation. Crank up the tension to achieve up to 165lbs of down pressure. This allows the teeth on the roller to dig into the branches and ensure a smooth entry into the chipper head. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

WEIGHT

WM-8H…990lbs

More weight = more steel

More strength and stability…period.

TRUE 8”x8” IN-FEED OPENING

WoodMaxx WM-series chippers offer a larger 8”x 8” in-feed to easily accept those crooked branches. Other 8” chippers open 8” wide, but only 4-1/2” high. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

8mm THICK FLYWHEEL HOUSING

WoodMaxx WM-series chippers use heavy gauge 8MM thick Q235 (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 and rigidity. Other chippers use only ¼” steel. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

EASY KNIFE ACCESS PANELS

WoodMaxx™ WM-series chipper knives can be changed from the side of the machine by one person in as little as 10 minutes. Other chippers require you to reach into the in-feed bin to hold the head of the bolt, while someone else turns the nut from the backside of the flywheel . CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

HEAVY DUTY 5/8” COGGED DRIVE V-BELTS

WoodMaxx™ WM-series chippers are equipped with extreme duty 5/8” wide cogged drive v-belts. 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 BX size allows you to purchase replacement v-belts at any auto parts store. Other chippers use 15mm belts—try to find those in the USA! CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

SAFETY AUTO FEED STOP BAR

Safety is paramount on WoodMaxx™ chippers. Located on the top of the in-feed bin, the WM-8H utilizes an easy to activate hydraulic auto-feed stop safety bar to disengage the in-feed rollers in case of an emergency, or to clear the in-feed bin if necessary. By simply pulling down on the bar, the user can stop and even reverses the direction of the in-feed rollers. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

HANDY FEED ROLLER ASSIST HANDLE LOCATED ON TOP OF MACHINE

This feature allows the user to access the handle from either side of the machine. The center lift point allows the WM-series chipper to use stronger tension springs, increasing the in-feed ability. . CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

RUST RESISTANT POWDER COAT

The powder coat finish is baked on at 450 degrees, and is thicker and more durable than ordinary paint.

CLEAR VINYL BAFFLE

The clear vinyl baffle feature protects the user from chip blow-back, while allowing the user to see what is going on in the hopper. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE

3 YEAR WARRANTY

This robust chipper comes with an equally robust 3 year warranty. Our service department also stocks a full line of replacement parts.

Better than expected September 23, 2014
Reviewer: Capital Area Greenbelt, Inc from Harrisburg, PA United States  
Received the chipper on time and assembly went well. Two people are a great help as the panels are heavy to hold in place. Took a few hours as we were careful referring to the video. Setup on the tractors JD4600 and JD3720 went well and the unit is interchangeable with only the height to adjust. We replaced the bolts with pins to make the swap easier. We have about 10 hours on the unit now with no problems. We are clearing along a pedestrian/bike trail that has a lot of tangled small vines and saplings. The unit handles both well with only occasional wrapping of the vines, reversing the feed rollers clears the wrap. We have tried several large logs and the chipper handled the well with out slowing down. They must have been near the 8" advertised capacity.The hydraulic feed rollers are a must and a real time saver.  We are very satisfied and would recommend this chipper without hesitation.

One of the best buys I have ever made! September 9, 2014
Reviewer: Carl Kemme from Allendale, MI United States  
One of the best buys I have ever made!  We have the Emerald Ash Borer in our area and it has killed all of our ash trees, so the wood is hard and dry, but the chipper eats it up with no problem. In order to get a burning permit in our township you must be 500 ft. from any building. So, the Chipper has been the answer and it makes great mulch for our flower beds.

I would buy it again! August 28, 2014
Reviewer: Kevin J. Foust from Farmersville, OH United States  
I bought a Woodmaxx (8H) chipper last year and am very pleased with it. It was better than expected which was a nice surprise for once! It's done all I have asked of it and I'd buy it again which states all you need to know about my experience. It was delivered promptly and they answered all my questions I had. It is a great option for a land owner at a decent price.

I'm impressed with how fast & efficient it chips! August 20, 2014
Reviewer: George Wall from Kentwood, LA United States  
I was very pleased with the purchase experience.  I spoke with Amanda when ordering, and she was very helpful and answered all of my questions.  I also received it sooner than I expected.  My WoodMaxx wood chipper works great.  I am impressed with how fast and efficient it chips.  The hydraulic feed makes it easy with large limbs.
