Digital Hour Meter

The WoodMaxx DC-650 digital hour meter ensures proper maintenance intervals.

360 Degree Swivel Discharge Chute

The WoodMaxx DC-650 is equipped with a 360 Degree Swivel Discharge Chute, allowing you to direct the chips into a trailer or the back of a pick up truck without having to move the entire machine.

2 Heavy Duty Main Shaft Bearings

The main shaft bearings on the DC-650 wood chipper passes through the flywheel housing and is supported by two industrial flange bearings. This feature, combined with the heavy duty shaft, allows the flywheel to run extremely true, while adding a great deal of strength.

Hinged Infeed Hopper- Easy Knife Access

All wood chippers will require some routine maintenance like adjusting the gap between the bed knife and the flywheel knives as they wear. This gap is essential to proper operation of the wood chipper. The infeed hopper on the WoodMaxx DC-650 swings open to expose the bed knife, allowing the user to access the knife to make adjustments. Simply remove 2 bolts and the hopper will swing open like a door. This feature is exclusive to WoodMaxx. Other chippers require the user to crawl into the infeed hopper to change the bed knife or adjust the gap between the bed knife and flywheel knives.

2 Heavy Duty V-Cogged Drive Belts

The WoodMaxx DC-650 wood chippers are equipped with two heavy-duty Gates brand cogged V-belts. These v-belts are known for their superior performance and reputability. They are easy to find at any auto parts store; SAE standard size AX34.

Safety Stop Bar

Safety is paramount on WoodMaxx wood chippers. Located at the top of the infeed bin, the DC-650 utilizes an electrical safety switch to shut the engine down. Simply push down the safety bar and the engine will come to a halt in seconds.

Rust Resistant Powder Coat Finish

This is high impact, UV stable, fade-resistant polyester powder coating that is baked on at 450 degrees. Powder coating finish is thicker and more durable than ordinary paint.

5 of 5 Great product, disappointed with shipping CS July 30, 2019
Reviewer: Timothy Magill from Kansas City, KS United States  
The product seems well built, and that is my five star rating. However, the shipping was two days late, and after waiting two days in vain without hearing an update, I called them and they didn't seem to know why the product was still sitting on their dock, 20 minutes from my house. They couldn't make up their mind when the product would actually arrive at my home.
Great product, but shipping customer service was terrible.

5 of 5 DC-650 Gas Powered Chipped July 8, 2019
Reviewer: SGH from Simpsonville, SC United States  
Should have purchased one of these years ago.  Definitely recommend the lift gate delivery service.
Came right to the house, and had it assembled and ready to go within a couple of hours.  Plenty of power, and the self feeding feature works really well.  Went through a huge pile of limbs and branches that had piled up over several months all in one afternoon.  Next time it will be easier to chip when the limbs are fresh cut.

Reviewer: MORRIS BOOTH from VALDOSTA, GA United States  
Have over 75 Georgia pine trees and 12 large overgrown Azalea bushes 1 Chestnut trees and a pear tree which I pruned this year. Also took care of all the branches with the recent storms. Glad I had it. The company communicates well and in a timely fashion.

One of the best property maintenance machines I purchased last year.
