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-8M MECHANICAL AUTO FEED CHIPPER…

The WoodMaxx™ WM-8M mechanical auto-feed chipper is a robust self-feeding PTO wood chipper. This wood chipper is compact, yet built to withstand rigorous use. Dual in-feed rollers grab and pull material into the chipper head using a belt driven gear box and drive axle system. High quality (A8 tool steel) made in the U.S.A. knives are standard equipment on all WM-series wood chippers. Check out these features. The WoodMaxx™ WM-series chippers are so unique and innovate 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.

BELT DRIVEN GEAR BOX AND DRIVE AXLE SYSTEM

The in-feed system on the WM-8M utilizes a belt driven oil bath 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. CLICK HERE FOR PICTURE.

EZ-HITCH 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 A 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

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

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 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.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 BEARING TECH DRAWING

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-8M…950lbs

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 (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 WM-8M 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. 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.

WoodMaxx is tops! August 28, 2014
Reviewer: Franklin Canada from Collinwood, TN United States  
First, let me say that the machine is wonderful. It does everything we expected and more. And it arrived in perfect condition, thanks to the best crate I've ever seen.

We cut down several trees near our house to reduce the shade in our garden area. We cut up the trees into fire wood. And all of the small limbs we fed into the chipper. When it was over we had approximately half a dump truck load of chips. And that we used as mulch around our fruit and nut trees, which saved us a lot of money, not having to purchase expensive commercial mulch.

Having previously owned another brand of chipper, I can say without reservation that WoodMaxx is tops! We could not be more pleased with our purchase.

Thanks for a top quality chipper. And thanks for the best crating I've ever seen.

WM-8H Chipper August 4, 2014
Reviewer: D Dickinson from Wolfeboro, NH United States  
What a machine!  Had a few weeks now, and it has exceeded my expectations.  Took it off the truck with my tractor bucket and chains.-very well packaged for shipping. About 3hours too unpack and assemble, a 2nd set of hands is a big help.  It made short work of all the brush piles I had around.  The TC 33 tractor hardly knows it's there. My son can't wait to get it in the woods for his wood lot harvesting.  Thank you WoodMaxx for a great product at reasonable price.

"This is a quality Item." July 25, 2014
Reviewer: Robert Benny from Killarney, MB Canada  
We are VERY pleased with the (WM-8M) chipper.  Delivery was fast and painless.  Set up was fairly easy.  Hooking up and unhooking from our 33 hp tractor is a cinch. We have cleared out about 500 feet of overgrown hedge on one of our acreages.  We (my wife Ruth and I) cut most of it down last fall.  We were able to chip about 50 feet of it before winter set in and stopped us.  We chipped the rest this spring in about three medium sized days.  I now have the unit back home, have serviced it and found no problems.  I'm not a big fan of recommending things to others, but believe I can truly say this is a quality item.

This thing is awesome! July 8, 2014
Reviewer: Robert Moore from Cypress, TX United States  
Late last year as a Christmas gift, my Mother bought for me one of the WM-8M chippers.  An amazingly nice gift, but then again, I "hold her grandson hostage" and she gets first right of refusal for mulch.  Anyway, she said it would be the last big Christmas gift I would get from her.  And that's alright because this thing is awesome.

It arrived as scheduled and remaining assembly was easy.  I've already made significant headway in clearing a lot of underbrush and good-sized hardwoods.  I have named it "The Mediator".  Stuff you might struggle with goes in one end.  But after a quick session with The Mediator, no struggles come out of that chute!

We filled 4 truck beds w/out a single clog or jam! June 19, 2014
Reviewer: David VanSloun from Andover, MN United States  
My wife and I finally had the chance to use our WoodMaxx Chipper after a long Minnesota winter. We had to remove 2 very impressive cottonwood trees. After cutting what we wanted for firewood the WoodMax was put to work ... I have to say I was impressed. v. The WoodMax has moved to the top of the list as our favorite implement, well worth every penny.

I am a retired engineer so I am always looking for ways to make things better ... Only one suggestion for the WoodMaxx ... Use grade 8 washers on the cutoff tool steal plate so they do not deform and the block comes loose. I have never had only one suggestion. Good design, well done!
