TM-86H Wood Chipper
WoodMaxx TM-86H is a robust compact PTO driven wood chipper with a self-contained
hydraulic auto-feed system that features an impressive 8" x 6" capacity. This
chipper weighs in at 595 lbs., with a 120 lbs. 24" solid steel flywheel.
Although this machine can handle tractors of 50 plus hp. it was specifically
designed for use on smaller sub compact tractors with as little as 15 hp. at
the PTO such as BX series Kubotas, John Deere 1000 series, New Holland, Massy
Ferguson GC series, Mahindra Max series, and more. The WoodMaxx TM-series
chippers are so unique and innovative that they are now USA and internationally
patent pending. The WoodMaxx TM-86H wood chipper is compact, yet built to
withstand commercial use. The aggressive hydraulically powered infeed roller
grabs and pulls material into the chipper head using a powerful USA White brand
hydraulic motor. The motor is powered by the chipper's self-contained hydraulic
pump and tank. High quality standard (CR12 steel) or optional (made in the
U.S.A. A8 tool steel) knives are available equipment on all TM-series wood
chippers. Check out these features:

WoodMaxx TM-series chippers are the perfect combination of size, weight, and features.
Compact enough to move around, yet strong enough to get the tough jobs done.
TM-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 Q-235 (American standard A-36) structural steel
plate, the strongest plate steel available. Each piece is precisely laser cut
and meticulously welded. The WoodMaxx TM-series chipper exclusive structural
design includes a direct drive 40mm diameter main shaft that passes straight
through the flywheel housing and is supported by 2 flange bearings. This
feature allows the flywheel to run true and adds a great deal of strength.
IS THE ORIGINAL
WoodMaxx is the original chipper of this design. With over 2-1/2 years of development
the WoodMaxx TM-series chipper offers the highest level of quality and
innovation, with many exclusive features not found anywhere else. For sub
compact tractors, there is no other chipper on the market that can do what the
WoodMaxx TM-86H requires a tractor with a category 1 or 2 three point hitch
and at least 15 hp. at the PTO up to 50 hp. Of course chipping capacity is
directly related to horse power and torque, therefore with 15 hp. you can
expect to chip 3" hard and 4" soft material and with 50 hp. you can expect to
chip any material up to 6" in diameter with no trouble. In testing a 25 hp.
tractor gave excellent work to fuel consumption results. Tractors with more
than 50 hp. will not over power and damage the wood chipper since it is shear
bolt protected, but are simply going to burn more fuel to accomplish the same
8" x 6" INFEED OPENING
WoodMaxx TM-86H chipper offers a large 8" x 6" infeed to easily accept those crooked
branches. Although the opening is this size, the material you can chip is
dictated by the HP of your tractor. With a 15hp tractor (at the PTO) you can expect
to easily chip 4" material.
DIAMETER 120 LB. COMPUTER BALANCED FLYWHEEL
WoodMaxx TM-86H chippers use a 24" diameter 120lb. solid steel flywheel to
deliver the energy required to easily chip all types of material. The flywheel
is computer controlled dynamically balanced to ensure smooth running. Through
thorough testing and experimentation, WoodMaxx has discovered that the 120lbs
flywheel is ideal for sub compact tractors. Larger flywheels do not produce
optimal effects when used with sub compact tractors, since larger flywheels
require more horsepower to turn, which reduces chipping capacity and
efficiency. With larger flywheels, horsepower is diverted into turning the
flywheel, instead of chipping your branches!

CONTAINED HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
WoodMaxx TM-86H chipper comes complete with a hydraulic pump and a 5 gallon
reservoir tank to power the infeed motor. The hydraulic motor is 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 15 horsepower at the PTO to operate this machine.
USA White Brand Hydraulic Motor
WoodMaxx TM-86H wood chippers are equipped with USA "White drive products" brand hydraulic infeed motors. White is renowned for their high quality American engineered hydraulic motors.
[SAE] STANDARD SIZE HOSE FITTINGS
JIC fittings are widely used in fluid power applications throughout the USA and
Canada. As a WoodMaxx customer, this means replacement hoses can be made just
about anywhere. The hoses on the TM-86H are also covered in a nylon protective
sheath to protect from damage.
PTO wood chipper is now equipped with a convenient tachometer/ hour meter
allowing 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.
6.25" DIAMETER HARDENED STEEL COMMERCIAL STYLE INFEED ROLLER-
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. After countless hours of research and development on the infeed
system, we have developed a large diameter (6.25") infeed roller that easily
climbs up and grabs the branches to bite in and efficiently pull the material
into the flywheel. 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 now utilize an infeed roller with high carbon steel chisel
teeth. This type of infeed roller is found on larger, much more expensive
machines. We have also spaced the teeth out the prevent material like leaves
and bark from getting impacted between the teeth. This allows the roller to
self-clean and also allows the 125lbs of down pressure to focus on fewer teeth
which increases the bite. This roller, along with the high tension spring
aggressively bites 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 6" with or without leaves. Small, vine type material as well as long
or short needle pine is no problem for the WoodMaxx TM series chipper. Vines,
leaves, and small branches won't wrap around the roller as they would on other
chippers. The advanced design of our infeed roller is a feature that should
not be overlooked when shopping for a wood chipper.
WoodMaxx TM-86H is a high torque direct drive chipper, no drive belts to
adjust or replace. The chipper flywheel speed is 540 rpm, this is why the
chipper uses four knives on the flywheel instead of 2 as our higher flywheel speed
WM-series chippers do. Ultimately the end result is the same... 36 bites per
EDGE REVERSIBLE FLYWHEEL KNIVES
WoodMaxx TM-series chippers now all come standard with high carbon CR12 reversible dual
edge flywheel knives. 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
TM-series chipper was designed to actually help to hold the knives on. This
eliminates knife and bolt breakage that can be found on other dual edge knife
systems. Optional USA made A8 tool steel knives are also available.
BED ( ANVIL ) KNIFE
WoodMaxx TM-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.

SWIVEL DISCHARGE CHUTE
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.
FLOW FLYWHEEL CHAMBER VENTILATION
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!
QUICK HITCH COMPATIBLE
WoodMaxx TM-series chippers are now category 1 quick hitch compatible.
WoodMaxx is the only PTO chipper that works with quick hitch (also works with
John Deere I-match). Save time by never leaving the seat of your tractor to
link up with the TM-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
lease note, you'll need
the Premium PTO shaft or a longer imported PTO shaft if you have a quick hitch
(contact us for more info).
DUTY CAST STEEL BEARING HOUSINGS
heavy duty cast steel flange bearings support the 40mm main shaft, which passes
through the flywheel housing, and is supported by a flange bearing on either
side. This heavy duty, shock resistant cast steel bearings are much more
durable than cast iron - a unique feature of all WoodMaxx chippers.
USA "WHITE" BRAND VARIABLE SPEED HYDRAULIC MOTOR
WoodMaxx TM-86H wood chippers are equipped with USA "White drive products" brand hydraulic infeed motors. White is renowned for their high quality American engineered hydraulic motors. The speed of this
motor can be controlled to variable speeds from (0-75ft. /min) with the
included pressure compensation flow control valve that allows for very precise
infeed speed adjustment. The aggressive hydraulic powered infeed roller and
the design of the sloped infeed bin itself work together to pull material into
the chipper head. This feature allows the user to slow the infeed speed down
to accept large material.
ADJUSTABLE INFEED ROLLER TENSION SPRINGS
WoodMaxx TM-series chipper utilizes a high tension spring 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 125lbs. of down
pressure. This allows the teeth on the roller to dig into the branches and
ensure a smooth entry into the chipper head.

AUTO FEED STOP BAR
is paramount on WoodMaxx chippers. Located surrounding the infeed bin, the
TM-86H utilizes an easy to activate hydraulic auto-feed stop safety bar to
disengage the infeed rollers in case of an emergency, or to clear the infeed
bin if necessary. By simply pushing on the bar, the user can stop and even
reverses the direction of the infeed roller.
