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. The material is fed into a sloped infeed bin and fed into the 10" diameter 53 lb. chipper drum that acts as a power feed assist system pulling the branches in at up to 50' per/min. Although the chipper weighs over 400 pounds it is perfectly balanced and can be easily moved to the work site by tipping it back and pushing it around with the included handles.

5 of 5 Dc-1260e March 20, 2020
Reviewer: Steven from Salem, CT United States  
This machine exceeded my expectations.....well built and plenty of power.  Some minor issues, but I would suggest watching the YouTube videos out there on this unit by Redbarnboats, he does a great job explaining what you need to perform upon assembly of this unit.  Enjoy this equipment addition!

5 of 5 How much wood can a WoodMaxx chuck December 19, 2019
Reviewer: Warren from Maple Valley, WA United States  
Ordered it on Veterans Day for the discount, and it arrived on 12-4-19.  The trucker was kind enough to lower his lift gate down to my trailer and transfer it.  Box looked like it went to Mars and back, but lifting it up showed the chipper rapped in it's foam cocoon and in perfect shape.  But be careful when you remove the foam as there is no interior strap and everything starts falling over.  Had to reset the oil seals on the wheels (not fully set and dragging) and adjust the anvil.  Everything else was fine, but reading the reviews here I will go check everything again.  I'm about halfway though the piles I have on my property, and must say that it can "chuck wood" with the best of them.  I did a video series on my YouTube channel and you can see the first of four here.

5 of 5 Worked better than I was expecting for the price December 19, 2019
Reviewer: James Rautmann from PLYMOUTH, WI United States  
I've had this chipper now for 7 months and it has worked fantastic.  I wasn't sure that the gravity feed would really work but it is great.  I clear a lot of brush and small trees and I can cut a 2 to 3 inch tree and just drop it in the chute and it chips it up as fast as I can reach down and grab another branch.  I bought the electric start and it is great - I'm too old to pull - pull- pull. I thought the price was great also.

5 of 5 Well worth the money December 17, 2019
Reviewer: Emory Jones Jr from VA United States  
I got the model with the electric start Briggs and ordered the axle extensions also. The initial adjustment of the anvil was a bit of a pain but assembly was pretty straight forward. My biggest complaint is that some limbs would hit the stop bar on the feed chute and stop the engine causing wood in the chipping chamber to jam the rotor. Opening the chute and unclogging the chamber was relatively easy but would have been easier if the chute had over center clamps instead of nuts and bolts. The rubber gasket under the chute dropped out of place and  got torn. I have since glued it in place with rtv. Check ALL of the bolts and nuts on the machine. The engine mounting bolts  had the nuts started on the bolts and not tightened. Same thing with the battery hold down nuts. Aside from those things, the chipper worked very well and exceeded my expectations. So far, customer service has been exceptional. All of my questions have been answered quickly and shipping was much faster than expected.

5 of 5 1260 wood chipper December 6, 2019
Reviewer: John Anderson from Fordland, MO United States  
Chipper was shipped to me in 10 days after ordering and arrived with only a small rub mark on paint... the chipper works perfect and could not be happier. I also ordered the wheel extender kit to keep it stable pulling over my hillside. I looked at a lot of chippers and found this to be the Best Buy for the money and the quality of this chipper is fantastic.
