MX-8800 PATENTED 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 in-feed roller pulls material into the chipper head using a powerful, high quality, Danfoss hydraulic motor. This motor is powered by the chipper's self-contained hydrostatic pump and reservoir. Two (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 patented.

STRENGTH IN DESIGN

WoodMaxx 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.

MACHINE 95% ASSEMBLED ON DELIVERY

WoodMaxx MX-8800 wood chipper comes shipped to you in in a wooden crate and is 95% completely assembled. Simply attach the MX-8800 wood chipper to your tractor, attach the in-feed bin, raise the discharge chute, size and attach the PTO shaft (included), and fill the oil reservoir with 2 quarts of 10-W40 motor oil. The WoodMaxx MX-8800 wood chippers are manufactured and assembled right here at our facility and are given a comprehensive 22-point inspection, and are serviced prior to leaving our warehouse. Simply follow the user-friendly operator manual and you will be chipping in no time at all.

200 LBS 24.5" DIAMETER FLYWHEEL - IDEAL WEIGHT

WoodMaxx 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. Through thorough testing and experimentation, WoodMaxx has discovered that the 200 pound 24.5" flywheel is ideal for this size wood chipper.

REVERSIBLE MADE-IN-USA KNIVES

The WoodMaxx MX-8800 wood chipper is equipped with two USA made, reversible dual edge knives installed. These knives are attached to the flywheel with made in USA Holo- Krome class 12.9 bolts. Two knives, and they are offset so that with every 180 degrees of rotation, the knife is taking a slightly different cut of material. The reversible knives means that you get twice the work out of one set! Designed for extreme-duty - there is no better material that can be used for superior performance and life than through our hardened, heat treated, A-8 tool steel knives.

SELF-CONTAINED HYDROSTATIC INFEED DRIVE SYSTEM

The WoodMaxx patented hydrostatic In-feed system is comprised of a self-contained hydrostatic pump, filter and reservoir that requires only two quarts of motor oil to power the In-feed 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 ft./min to a full 75 ft./min. with full power through the entire speed range. The Hydrostatic drive system on the WoodMaxx MX-8800 is so unique to the industry that it is now Patent protected.

TACHOMETER / HOUR METER

WoodMaxx 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.

USA "DANFOSS" BRAND HYDRAULIC MOTOR

WoodMaxx MX-series wood chippers are equipped with USA "DanFoss" brand hydraulic in-feed motors. DanFoss is renowned for their high-quality American engineered hydraulic motors.

TABLE HEIGHT IN-FEED BIN

The WoodMaxx MX-8800 PTO Wood chipper attachment is equipped with a comfortable table height in-feed bin. This allows the user ergonomic feeding of material.

TRUE 8" x 8" IN-FEED OPENING

The WoodMaxx MX-8800 wood chipper offers a large 8"x 8" in-feed opening to easily accept those crooked branches. This is the largest in-feed opening available of any PTO wood chipper in its class.

1/4" 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 and rigidity.

EASY KNIFE ACCESS

WoodMaxx 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 knives.

HEAVY DUTY 5/8" COGGED DRIVE V-BELTS

WoodMaxx MX-series wood chippers are equipped with five extreme duty 5/8" wide EDPM rubber 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.
SAFETY AUTO FEED STOP BAR & INFEED ROLLER SPEED ADJUSTMENT

Safety is paramount on WoodMaxx wood chippers. Located on the top of the in-feed bin, the MX-8800 utilizes an easy to activate hydrostatic auto-feed stop safety bar to disengage the In-feed roller in case of an emergency, or to clear the in-feed 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.

8" DIAMETER HARDENED STEEL COMMERCIAL STYLE INFEED ROLLER -

A 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 In-feed 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 In-feed system, for the MX-8800 we have developed a large diameter (8") in-feed 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.

To prevent material like tree bark and leaves from impacting between the teeth of the in-feed 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 in-feed roller as they would on other wood chippers. The exclusive 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 unique and effective that they are now patent pending.

EASY SWIVEL DISCHARGE CHUTE -

The 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.

AUTOMATIC BELT TENSIONER -

The 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.

WIDE FOOTPRINT SUPPORT BASE

Because 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.

HIGH FLOW FLYWHEEL CHAMBER VENTILATION -

WoodMaxx 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!

JIC STANDARD HOSE FITTINGS

The 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.

MAIN SHAFT SUPPORTED BY TWO INDUSTRIAL FLANGE BEARINGS

The 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.

IN-FEED ROLLER TENSION GAS SPRINGS

The 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 in-feed roller to prevent the in-feed 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 in-feed roller to dig into the branches and ensure a smooth entry into the chipper head.

WEIGHT

MX-8800... 850lbs of American made steel!

RUST RESISTANT POWDER COAT

The WoodMaxx MX-8800 is finished with UV stable fade resistant polyester powder coating baked on at 450 degrees. Powder coating finish is thicker and more durable than ordinary paint.

CLEAR VINYL CHIP BAFFLE

Safety 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.

SLEEK HYDRAULIC HOSE CONFIGURATION

The hydraulic hose configuration for the WoodMaxx MX-8800 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.

NYLON PROTECTIVE HYDRAULIC HOSE WRAP

Along 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.

PTO SHAFT

The WoodMaxx MX-8800 wood chipper includes our Premium PTO shaft that retails for $250 if purchased recently.

5 of 5 Assembly, use and storage November 9, 2020
Reviewer: Three Forks Preserve from Carmel, IN United States  
Assembly was relatively easy although some part descriptions and photos need to be updated.  Once assembled, the unit works really well for branches up to about 4-5" diameter.  It is surprising how this chipper manages the larger pieces.  As a PTO mounted chipper, I can take it into the woods and I don't need to move the material to another vehicle.  I made a heavy duty rolling stand on which to store the MX-8800 so I can roll it to the tractor and hook it up on the 3 pt hitch and then adjust height easily for connecting the PTO.  It takes up a small footprint in the garage and is always ready when I am.  Overall, great chipper and easy to use.

5 of 5 Reason to Own a Tractor October 1, 2020
Reviewer: T. Field from VIRGINIA United States  
Of all our implements, the extraordinary MX-8800 has become the most-used.  It goes anywhere the tractor can (warning: it's top-heavy), so we have chipped brush and small trees right on location all over the property... fantastic clean-up machine!  L3301 is a perfect power match, and no premium shaft cutting required.  Adding Pat's quick change did necessitate a longer top link.

The chipper swallows trees as fast as we can cut them, though the feeder gags on right-angle branches (trim them off) and some slippery fresh trunks.  The chips are wonderfully small and easily scattered by swinging the chute.

We always wear chainsaw helmets with face screen (small branches whip around) and hearing protection.  The loud throbbing is fatiguing otherwise.

5 of 5 MX-8800 - WOW! October 1, 2020
Reviewer: Victor Svec from Holderness, NH United States  
This is an excellent machine. I received mine a week ago and cannot stop using it. Pretty straight forward to assemble. I'm using it on a Kioti CK35 and it eats up 6 inch pine and fir with no problems. I highly recommend this chipper.

5 of 5 MX-8800 January 6, 2020
Reviewer: JD-WA from Olympia, WA United States  
The chipper arrive via lift gate with no problems.  Assembly was straightforward.  I turned the input shaft by hand and had some interference.  It appeared that a bolt for the out feed fell inside.  After getting that cleared, I hooked it up to my Kubota L3301.  It's a beast chipping anything that you can get started in the power feed drive.   The  only thing left to determine is the longevity and service support.  I would like WoodMaxx to find a compatible Part Number for an oil filter that I can pick up at my local parts store with the belts.
