WoodMaxx WM-8M FEATURES INCLUDE:

STRENGTH IN DESIGN

WoodMaxx™ WM-series 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. 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.

TRACTOR REQUIREMENTS

The WoodMaxx™ WM-8M requires a tractor with a category 1 or 2 three point hitch and at least 19 hp. at the PTO up to 100 hp. Of course chipping capacity is directly related to horse power and torque, therefore with 19 hp. you can expect to chip 4” hard and 6” soft material and with 50 hp. you can expect to chip any material up to 8” in diameter with no trouble. In testing, a 30 hp. tractor gave excellent work to fuel consumption results. Tractors with more than 50 hp. will not overpower and damage the wood chipper since it is shear bolt protected, but are simply going to burn more fuel to accomplish the same results.

TRUE 8” x 8” INFEED OPENING

WoodMaxx WM-series wood chippers offer a larger 8”x 8” infeed to easily accept those crooked branches. Other 8” chippers open 8” wide, but only 4-1/2” high.

200 LBS FLYWHEEL – IDEAL WEIGHT

WoodMaxx™ WM-series chippers use a 24" dynamically computer balanced 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 for this size wood chipper.

MADE IN USA KNIVES

All WoodMaxx™ WM-series 3 pt. hitch mounted wood chippers are equipped with made in USA knives and made in USA Holo-Krome class 12.9 knife bolts. These types of wood chippers are 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.

TACHOMETER/ HOUR METER – NEW FOR 2016

WoodMaxx™ WM-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 logs 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.

DUAL EDGE REVERSIBLE CHIPPER KNIVES

WoodMaxx™ WM-series wood 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 wood 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 INFEED ROLLERS WoodMaxx EXCLUSIVE

Another WoodMaxx™ exclusive! Designed by WoodMaxx, copied by some. 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 wood 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.

BELT DRIVEN GEAR BOX AND DRIVE AXLE SYSTEM

The in-feed system on the WM-8M utilizes a belt driven oil bath heavy duty gear box that increases torque and transfers power to the upper feed roller through an extreme duty drive axle. For long life, the drive axle is machined splined (similar to the PTO spline of your tractor), and the U-joints are protected from debris by a rubber boot. The clutch mechanism is precisely machined from solid steel to ensure proper function. This in-feed system will feed material at a rate of 58 ft./min.

QUICK HITCH COMPATIBLE 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. Please note, you'll need the USA PTO shaft or a longer imported PTO shaft if you have a quick hitch (contact us for more info). 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)

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.


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.

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™ PTO wood chippers are able to accommodate tractors that have a PTO height from 18” to 30” high.

HIGH FLOW FLYWHEEL CHAMBER VENTILATION

WoodMaxx™ WM-series wood chipper attachments 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!

HEAVY DUTY CAST STEEL BEARING HOUSINGS

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.

MAIN SHAFT SUPPORTED BY 3 BEARINGS

The 2” main shaft on the WM-series PTO wood chippers 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.

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.

WEIGHT

WM-8M…950lbs (shipping)

More weight = more steel

More strength and stability…period.

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.

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 infeed bin to hold the head of the bolt, while someone else turns the nut from the backside of the flywheel.

ADJUSTABLE BED [ ANVIL ] KNIFE

WoodMaxx™ WM-series wood chippers are equipped with an adjustable bed knife to ensure that the proper knife gap is achieved. This feature allows the user to adjust the distance between the flywheel knife and the bed knife so that the required distance is maintained after knife sharpening. Proper gap is important so that even the smallest material is chipped as it passes through the chipper.

HEAVY DUTY 5/8” COGGED DRIVE V-BELTS (STANDARD BX-SERIES)

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!

SAFETY AUTO-FEED STOP BAR

Safety is paramount on WoodMaxx™ chippers. Located on the top of the in-feed bin, the WoodMaxx 8" PTO chipper utilizes an easy to activate 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. This safety bar can be actuated and left in the off position, hands free, so that the operator can use both hands to clear the in-feed bin. This feature is safer because it allows the user to start the chipper without the feed rollers turning. Other chippers require a hand on the safety bar to keep the feed rollers in the off position.

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.

HORIZONTAL INFEED HOPPER

The in-feed hopper on the WM-series wood chippers is horizontal and approximately table height for easy material loading.

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.

3 YEAR WARRANTY

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

PTO SHAFT

WoodMaxx wood chippers include a standard PTO shaft, but for an additional $150.00 charge, we do offer a very high quality made in the USA PTO shaft. The USA made shaft retails for $250 if purchased separately from the machine. NOTE: The USA shaft does not work with BX-series Kubota tractors. Have a quick hitch? The USA PTO shaft is compatible, or ask about our longer imported PTO shaft

Oh Man! October 12, 2016
Reviewer: Rick Van Leeuwen from Colorado  
Now this is the tool you need if you have a tractor with 3 point hitch and trees. Started limbing Ponderosa Pines and got carried away. Looked behind me and piles and piles of wood. Got a WM-8M and turned it all into wonderful piles of wood chips. Even ran a full 8" downed dead sapling into the in-feed bin. The roller grabbed it  and it gobbled up all 20 feet of it with ease. Wonderful machine. Strong, substantial components. Took about 2.5-3  hours to assemble just like the very clear and well written instructions in the fully illustrated color owners manual said. Couldn't be happier. Now I'm going out to wash and wax it before I start limbing again!

This chipper is the BEST I've ever used August 2, 2016
Reviewer: Pete from New York  
Your chipper performs better than expected! I have used (another brand's) chipper in the past - this machine out does it by 3 times! I have chipped some pretty big limbs (and) it just eats them up. This chipper is the best I've ever used. If you ever need a good refferal for someone thinking about buying one - I'd be more than happy...

(The WM-8M) has met all of my expectations! July 18, 2016
Reviewer: Lawrence S. from Maine  
The experience with the purchase and use of the WoodMaxx Wood Chipper has been one of the most unusual and pleasing equipment purchases I have ever made.  I discovered WoodMaxx via a search of the web for wood chippers.  After reading numerous manufacturers' literature, I was quite impressed with the information Woodmaxx provided.  Although I had not heard of WoodMaxx prior, the product seemed to fit my requirements and I was influenced by the fact that it was manufactured in upstate New York and close to New England.  I placed the order over the phone using a credit card, and I was advised that it could be shipped the next day!! Within a matter of a few days, the Chipper arrived and was unloaded into the bay of my barn.  I was extremely impressed with the "packaging" of the chipper in a steel-frame "shipping crate", complete with a very detailed - easy to understand set of instructions with a DVD for "unwrapping" and assembling.  While I can't say that I was able to meet the stated estimate of time for assembly, I was very able to complete the task single-handedly with minimal effort.

Operation of the Chipper has met all of my expectations.  Attachment to my Kubota utility tractor and set-up in the field is simple, and the supporting frame provides a rigid base for operation.  I am extremely pleased with the efficiency of entire process of order, purchase, and delivery of the Chipper; and the assembly and operation of the Chipper has been a good as I could have ever expected.  That being said, I cannot say that I have "enjoyed" using my WoodMaxx Wood Chipper - only because there's too much work involved!!
