    I received my WoodMaxx MX8800 and it was in excellent condition! The packing crate it was shipped in was A-1 ! I assembled as instructed with no issues. I ran 3-4 in birch through it with ease ! Very happy with it! Veteran owned company and Made in the USA 🇺🇸!!!!!!!

  2. Jonathan Hart

    I’ve put about 10 hrs on my MX8800 now and absolutely love this machine. I’ve chipped a huge amount of brush way faster than I ever thought possible. In the past I’ve rented commercial units but the MX8800 does better than most of those and is incredibly durable. I have it behind a 37 hp Kubota and it chips everything that is smaller than firewood with ease. My only regret with this purchase is not making it sooner!

  3. Dan Nixon ,Victor MT.

    This is year 3 with my 8800. If you buy any other pot chipper you are nuts. I do land tree and dead brush clearing with 36 pto np ant this machine chips everything I can throw at it. Most impressive is the hydronic auto feed, no fuss, it gust sucks everything right in.

  4. Jeffrey Seranko

    Picked up MX 8800 at factory on Friday September 23, got it home and assembled it in no time. The instructions were awesome. I have a John Deere 2038r and the 8800 is a beast on this machine I put it to the test right out of the box ran 6 inch cherry through it and handled it with no problem. My wife was like a kid in a candy store running around looking for the next piece to put in it to chip up. We have a 65 acre farm with a lot of very invasive trees on it so it will get plenty of use this winter. Every one at the factory was awesome to deal with from the office to the warehouse who got me loaded and back on the road. Keep up the good job and professional service.

    What a fantastic machine! I have mine hooked up to my Kubota 100hp tractor and it makes super fast work of all the trees I’ve been cutting down. And since I’m chipping up fresh trees, it makes amazing mulch for my vegetable garden. I just have to get faster at cutting those trees down to keep up with this beast! And the customer service was great when I had to call them about the freight company dumping my first chipper off the back of the truck… they had a replacement out the very next day!

    – Easy setup
    – Top quality construction
    – Prefect woodchips for mulch
    – Great customer service

    – Haven’t found one yet!

    Listen, you need this chipper. I used to waste so much time dragging branches across the yard to a pile to be burnt. Hours of my work day lost cutting things to smaller chunks just to get it back on the fire pile. Now, I’m running the MX-8800 on the back of a Bobcat CT2040HST. It is a game changer for property management and land clearing. This chipper is commercial grade manufacturing!

  7. Keith C.

    The MX-8800 chipper is a Beast! I bought this early summer ’22 and don’t usually write reviews. But… now that I have nearly 30hours on the chipper, I couldn’t be happier and wanted to share my experience. I run this Chipper on the back of a Kubota LX2610. I was torn between the 8800, 8600, and 8H because I wasn’t sure what my “Little” LX2610 could handle. I called customer service for guidance and the rep was knowledgeable and put me at ease. To date I have gone thru quite a few piles of limbs and brush without issue. If you are using a 2610 you will want to bump the RPM’s a bit when starting the chipper to prevent stalling. If I had to do it over again I would not hesitate to buy the 8800 again. Definitely the right decision for me. The hydraulic forward and reverse feed is a game changer.

    Once that fly wheel is up to speed there seems to be no stopping it. You will find yourself looking for large limbs that fill the shoot to watch this thing eat. I have gone through some hard wood(red oak and cherry) but most of my chipping has been pine or cedar. I have managed to jam/stall the chipper twice. Both times were my fault. First time I had a large Y shaped branch that I knew I should have trimmed. Second time I tried to feed a large piece of dry oak through faster than I should have. Clearing the jam is straight forward once you know how to do it. This is a great piece of machinery that I’m sure will last for many years. If you are in doubt, buy it you wont regret it.

    Been using this unit for 2 seasons now. Attached to a 40hp Kioti, this machine takes all I have given it in stride. Haven’t pushed it to the 8 inch limit yet as I usually burn anything over 5 inches. We use the chips for mulching so chip quality was a big issue for us – no disappointment there. Overall very pleased with the unit and seems to be a good value for the money. Being made in USA an added bonus.

  9. Larry Killien

    I received my MX 8800 a few weeks after my Dr. told me I could begin to move again; I had spent 3+ months in a back brace after a 7.5 hour fusion surgery. It took me a few days of sitting under it and slowly putting it together, it would be a piece of cake for someone in normal condition. A few days later I chipped for about 10 minutes, it was VERY easy but it was all the bending I was allowed. In the next few days/weeks I used it a few more times in short sessions. Using it really helped with my recovery from my surgery, I am now able to bend and lift, ( still limited to 35 pounds) but I’ve chipped enough of the down branches and brush and small trees to fill a pickup with chips!!

    We’ve mulched a few gardens, used the chips as lawn edging and are keeping weeds in check along a fence line. I am very impressed it is Safe and Easy to use!! I love the fact that once the wood is in the feeder I can go and get the next piece and keep chipping; and there is no manual feeding/pushing involved!!

    I should have bought this 10 years ago it would have saved me hours of work and made my home construction/maintenance a ton easier.

  10. Chris Busch

    A family friend has been helping us clear our new home site which was full of huge mature hardwoods. His WM-8H was so impressive that my wife and I ordered our own MX-8800 to speed up the clearing and to have for continued property maintenance of our 12 acres. We have over 30 hours on the MX-8800 and have been chipping 5” and under oak, poplar, beech, birch and hickory. Both the MX-8800 and WM-8H at operating RPM are more than capable of handling everything we have thrown into the feed chute. We chose the MX-8800 based on the hydrostatic feed, minimal oil requirements and ease of long term maintenance. The hydrostatic feed is extremely smooth and infinitely adjustable for speed and direction. We could not be happier with the decision to purchase this chipper, it is amazing

    Another friend that has a professional tree service helped us feed some small trees into the MX-8800 the other evening. Before heading home he told us that he is ordering one for himself to use on remote jobs where he cannot get his large “trailer style” chipper into the work area….

  11. Aaron and Rhonda

    We were very impressed with the power and the size of the chips made our life easy Thank You

  12. Ken Dixon

    I love my MX-8800! Assembly was not difficult and the separate 10-40 oil system topped up easily. I have 26 acres of small forest timberland and there is lots of chipping to do. I just spent a number of hours chipping branches from several large maples I removed and tonight I start on an enormous mountain of large branches from 15 large Douglas firs I trimmed up to 30’ to clear a mountain view. And the chip quality is very nice – friends want them. Another review said the MX-8800 is a BEAST. I’d like to second that comment. It works hard and well. I have a Kubota L3301 and that provides plenty of power for the big stuff with my Woodmaxx. Now if I can just save up enough to buy one of their backhoe units…

  13. kirk.voeckel

    I had started a long review suitable for a magazine article but then I realized that I don’t read those so nobody would read mine. Here’s the short version.

    I did phone order because I had some questions before ordering. Phone sales were knowledgeable, pleasant and easy to deal with.

    When the unit arrived sooner than expected the packaging was well constructed and the unit was well protected and arrived undamaged

    After unpacking and finding the full color, photo illustrated instruction book (Yethes book. Not the stapled together copy paper kind) assembly commenced. Follow the instructions in the order given in the instructions and the chipper went together flawlessly. The metal parts all seem to be heavy gauge nicely made pieces that go together well.

    Once assembled the drive shaft trimmed and the unit connected to my Kubota LX3310. The tractor specs are 27 PTO HP and a lift capacity around 2000 pounds. A little throttle is needed to engage the PTO or the engine will stall but once up to 540 RPM there are no power issues that I have seen so far. In two hours of operation I’ve put pine and some assorted hardwoods through it. The pine was tested up to the largest diameter that would go through I had. There were no power issues. The only comment I have on operation is if trying to chip a really large piece of wood proceed it with a smaller piece to get the drive roller higher. Otherwise, you will have issues with the drive roller not wanting to open wide enough to take the large pieces.

    Overall so far a good machine so far. It shows American craftsmanship and pride. If anything happens to change my mind I’ll post that too.

  14. Matthew Bahn

    Monsterous machine for the size of it. When they say 8”, I expected it to bog and stall its way through it. That wasn’t the case at all. It took a piece of 8” chestnut oak and swallowed it up. It wasn’t as fast as the smaller stuff. I like the speed settings on the infeed bar to suit the diameter of the wood. My only complaint is it bottoms out when loading into the dump trailer.

  15. Ryan Sherry

    Chipper showed up within a few days of ordering and was easy to unload off the truck. Assembly was very quick and easy along with very nice and well written directions with nice color photos. Due to terrible weather and ice I was not able to send but one branch through it the first day for testing but yesterday I finally got to do some real chipping. I but about 3 – 4 hours of time on it behind my JD 5065E and it worked flawlessly. It made easy work of the mountain of brush I had been collecting from clearing. I chipped small items to about 7” log that all went through no problem. I dod not have a single complaint about the chipper and would highly recommend it to anyone. I have few acres of 2-6” small trees that I am clearing out and am looking forward to making it all disappear with this nice machine. It is clearly made very well and I suspect it will be in use for many years to come. Thanks!

  16. Greg Erickson

    While doing research into the best rated woodchipper, I found the WoodMaxx website. There are definately higher and much lower priced models. I like the quality of USA made items and I wanted a company that was helpful to answer questions and to be able to discuss the workability of the machine. Review comments were very helpful in my decision making. I have not been disappointed once I decided on the correct model for my needs. I received the woodchipper between storms and was able to start working on assembling the chipper. One bolt was the wrong size for the three point and customer service sent the correct pin immediately. The WoodMaxx MX-8800 should be a good match for new Kubota MX-6000 diesel tractor.

  17. Allan and Jeanette Kremer

    Prior to the purchase of this chipper we shopped for sometime and several brands. When we were close to making a decision we called WoodMAXX to talk with a representative. That was really helpful in making our final decision on this brand and the MX8800 for our farm in the mountains of Virginia. When the chipper arrived it was well packaged and the driver made sure we opened the box to make sure there had not been any damage in shipment. The assembly was straight forward and took maybe an hour. That was a first positive sign for us. Our John Deere 5420 is plenty big for this chipper. Our use so far has been wonderful. We would highly recommend this model. Our journey to improve our farm has now gone from piling brush in huge piles to sawdust … happy customers who brag a little to friends and neighbors about this chipper!

  18. Ron Schneider

    My MX-8800 arrived recently intact and went together as described in the manual. I used it for the first time last week, chipping quite dry material from twigs to 6″. It worked well, was easy to feed and control, producing nice chips. Next I will try some 8″. I am powering it with my Kubota MX5200 tractor and it joins a WoodMaxx SB-72 snowblower I bought last year.
    The manual is comprehensive and well-written, but it does not show the latest hour meter / tachometer included with the machine.
    All-in-all it appears to be a good machine.

  19. Jerry W Hauser

    It took a while for my name to reach the top of the waiting list, but once it did, shipping was prompt. It arrived in less than a week, on a lift gate equipped semi.
    I was looking for a high quality product, Made in the USA, and this is it.
    I had several interactions with Customer Service and always found them to be knowledgeable, patient and highly professional.
    You can’t go wrong with this company, or it’s products.

  20. David Coles

    My 8800 arrived yesterday (Friday) and I had it up and running today!! Works great. It replaced my 17 year old ?chinese chipper? that finally gave out after our February ice storm?. which I am still working on the cleanup. We have 14 acres of mostly forest that got hit hard.

  21. Kelly Downing

    We just got our new 8800; finished assembly and started using it today. Assembly is simple; the two-hour estimate is reasonable. It takes a bit longer if your wife helps. ???? I had to shorten the PTO shaft, but it was a simple task with a chop saw.
    I decided to do some experiments right away, so I tried to push the limits a bit right away. Naturally, I managed to get a chunk of mulberry wedged in the feed. One quick call to a helpful service guy quickly guided me to a rapid resolution. So far, we are quite happy. We have lots of assorted trees nearing the end of their natural lives, so this will really come in handy. Plus an in-house source for mulch.

  22. Robert Karp

    This chipper works great. The heavy flywheel makes the difference. I live in ponderosa and pinyon forest and it does the job. Seems very well put together, not junk. I recommend it.

  23. Douglas Schaller

    Positives: (1) Customer Service; (a) Spoke with a live and very knowledgeable person every time I’ve called thus far (b) WoodMaxx allowed me to choose the carrier that has a hub near me, which allowed me to take actual delivery on my schedule (2) Product (a) Packaging was good (b) Assembly was easy to understand because of the nice manual that is included (c) Usage of so far has been flawless

    Opportunities: (1) Product (a) Assembly – make sure ALL fasteners are checked! I’m glad I did this, as one of the knife/blade bolts was only threaded in a few threads. Also, a couple of bearing setscrews were able to be tightened more too

    Overall: I would absolutely recommend this machine and this company!

  24. Michael Persell

    Using this chipper for farm cleanup. Attached to a Massey ferguson 5611. Plenty of hp even when running on economy 540pto.

  25. Brian Lindberg

    Great machine. Running it with my Kubota L4701. Love that it is USA made. It literally eats through the small stuff and does not even slow down chewing through the big pieces. It was more than I originally planned to spend but you get what you pay for. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a workhorse.” Will wear your apparel proudly and send customers your way. Thanks. Brian Lindberg- A very satisfied customer.

  27. Dennis

    Great quality machine, I’m 62 years old and worked at a county highway department 36 years so I’ve used several brands and this comparable to large commercial units. Also farmed and repaired equipment my whole career and this USA made chipper is great! I have worked,built,repaired equipment my whole career and this a fine piece of equipment.

  28. Bob Snavley

    In searching the internet for a PTO wood chipper, the Woodmaxx 8800 caught my eye. It meets and exceeds all of my needs, it is made in the USA, (which is very important to me), and the owner is a military veteran! Every person that I dealt with from sales to service was very personable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this awesome company.

  29. Michael

    I researched multiple brand chippers and landed on Woodmaxx made in USA MX 8800 as my top choice. It is a bit more expensive than competitors or the non-usa versions but it is worth every penny and the wait….. I was afraid that my John Deere 850 with 22.5 HP PTO wouldn’t be strong enough to handle 6″ limbs but I was wrong! I’ve got about 15 hours on this machine now. This is a very high quality MADE IN USA product. Highly recommend and would buy again! Thanks for a great product!!

  30. Harry

    Bought this chipper to use with my Kioti CK 2610 25 hp tractor running 21.5 hp at the pto. I am amazed at how well the MX 8800 works with my tractor. Easily doing six inch or less branches, and 4 inch or less as fast as you can as you put them in the hopper. Great unit, super well made. Glad I bought it. American made.

  31. Ryan

    Chipper has 4.1 hours on it and have about 10yards of chips for mulching. It is working great and I am glad I paid a bit extra for the USA built MX8800…the hydrostatic is nice because I tend to put in 15foot tree tops (4″ and smaller without chopping side branches) which sometimes need to be backed up and rotated a bit to get through. If these tops don’t snag, they go through at top speed!!

  32. Elvin Scheuring

    After researching all of the chippers and comparing specs, I decided this was the one for me. I like that it is made in the USA. Very well designed and built. I have 1.5 hours on it so far and it has worked excellent. The people at Woodmaxx were pleasant and helpful . Very pleased with this machine.

  33. Amanda carter

    Easy to assemble! Great quality and even greater price!

  34. Alan Vochaska

    If your looking for a chipper this is the best value available. A high quality, robust build with thoroughly engineered components is evident from top to bottom. Add in fast shipping and great packaging on top of being USA made you can not go wrong.

  35. Casey M.

    I got the MX-8800 chipper after doing some significant research. I have a wooded 20 acre piece of property with significant relief and bordering a stream with a series of spectacular water falls. The woods are a mostly hardwoods with lots of beech and oaks trees, but also some maples, pines, gum, dogwoods, tulip popular, sycamore, and redbud, among others. We had a direct hit from hurricane in 1996 that took out several hundred trees and left a tangled mess that left no part of the property walkable—even my long driveway. I decided to clean up the property myself, working each winter when able. Cleaning of many large trees, building trails, clearing brush, and thinning for forest management and to improve the views have all been a part of the project. To be sure, this is a hobby and my day job takes most of my time. Over this period of time, my equipment has improved and slowly but surely the work has gotten done. As a part of this effort, I bought a DR PTO chipper 20 years ago for my Kubota L2350 tractor (20 hp at pto). I have also rented several chippers over the years up to large diesel powered models with 100+ hp. So, I have worked with chippers quite a bit over a long period of time. The DR chipper couldn?t do most of what I wanted to do. The large chippers were difficult to maneuver over my terrain and had to be kept to a few level, wide trails, and they were expensive to rent and didn?t really fit my pattern of working an hour or two a day. Being in the final cleanup and thinning phase, I decided I would benefit from another chipper solution. I did a lot of research, and I landed on Woodmaxx as having the right sort of equipment for my job. I was impressed by the videos and the reviews. I decided to get the biggest chipper that my tractor could handle and having worked with a lot of chippers decided the hydrostatic feed for a heavy use machine was the way to go. So I order the MX-8800, and a WM-7600 backhoe while I was at it (review also posted).

    The chipper and backhoe arrived in a semi with a lift gate and were delivered and moved smoothly. The chipper is mostly already assembled. One just needs to assemble the feed shoot, hydrostatic controls, and put some oil in it. The manual is clear, methodical and easy to follow. The pictures could be updated with better quality images on the next printing. I did have to cut the PTO shaft to make it work and this was the most time consuming part of the set up. It wouldn?t have been bad if I had better tools; I definitely don?t recommend using a hacksaw as I did. For bigger tractors, this won?t be an issue and the shaft will work as delivered. I did beef up the shipping pallet and installed six heavy duty castors on the bottom to ease the hookup and storage in my crowded garage. With this addition, changing out the chipper is quick and easy.

    This is a substantial piece of hardware, but my tractor handles it fine. I have done a bunch of chipping with it already, probably 10 hr of hard steady work with a team of helpers feeding it. I found that matching the speed control to the size of material being fed allows my smallish tractor to drive this chipper just fine. I have fed hardwood material up to 8?, although most of my work is probably 4? and smaller. The larger material is useful for firewood, so I don?t need to go real big on the chipping. I am sure that for much larger tractors tuning the hydrostatic feed speed to the size of the material wouldn?t be necessary. The hydrostatic feed is great, and I am glad I opted for this model. I am well on my way to a final cleanup and thinning of the entire property, and the combination of the power, capability, and maneuverability of this chipper make it absolutely the perfect tool for my largish project. Once I am done, probably in a couple months at the rate we are able to work, it will be stored in my garage and used a couple times each year for maintenance that always arises. I can see this gem providing many years of service. I couldn?t be happier with this chipper and am absolutely delighted.

    My overall review summary can be provided with a little story. The first time I put the MX-8800 to work on a big pile of brush and small trees, my wife passed by while walking the dog. Her comments was: ?that?s a real honey.? And, so it is.

  36. Scott Makowski

    My MX-8800 came right on time from when they told us and took me and my wife about 35 min to assemble as simple directions with detailed pictures made it easy. Worked perfectly with Woodmaxx quick hitch and PTO shaft fit like a glove. Surprised how quiet and smooth it runs. Ran all sizes of branches thru and it just ate them up. We love this this new chipper.

  37. Justin Cooper

    I received my MX-8800 ahead of schedule. It took me about 20 minutes to complete the assembly because of the very detailed instruction booklet. I let my wife run the first branch log (4 inch) through it. It was super quiet with no rattles anywhere. She was having such a blast that it was hard to get a turn running anything through it. We had a pile of limbs from 4 big trees, from a storm, that we were waiting on the chipper to arrive. We knocked them all out in about 20 minutes. This thing chews branches up like they are cotton candy. I have it attached to a Mahindra 2565 with 52HP at the PTO. I had no stalls or stutters and ran at full speed. I maintain 40 Acres of wooded area and cant wait to start clearing up the trails next. I am so happy with this new chipper from WoodMaxx.

  38. Joe B.

    I purchased my MX-8800 and was finally able to use it after a snow melt. The chipper is wicked awesome to say the least. I never expected this kind of performance after researching chippers the last couple of years. I chewed up a 6 inch maple and plenty of small poplar & pine and it performed great. Nice small chips that I will add to my trail system. Fit great on my Kubota L3901. I do think they should start selling “Grapples” as that is my next purchase to make my clean up easier! The quick arrival and great design make this a very reasonable purchase to clean up my acreage. Thanks!

  39. Three Forks Preserve

    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.

  40. T. Field

    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.

  41. Victor Svec

    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.

  42. Stephen F Lowe

    Great machine was easy to assemble my Mahindra 2810 HST handles it well with 22 and 1/2 PTO HP the hydrostatic auto feed works great

  43. JD-WA

    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.

  44. David Buchholz

    Just finished using our new Woodmaxx chipper for five hours. My wife and I cleared branches and cut trees that were removed for our perimeter fence project.

    We have many more hours to work through the debris piles. This unit is really effective at chipping up large diameter branches and will allow us to get this work done easily.

    Thank you for designing and building a heavy duty implement that works well.

  45. T Michael Cobb

    The chipper arrived this week and I was surprised at the great quality; both material and construction . This is, no doubt, a quality chipper. Very well constructed. Assembly was quick and instructions were very easy to understand. If you have any mechanical skills whatsoever you’ll have no problems. Will update further.

  46. PhilIp Wojcik

    Received my MX-8800 chipper in just a week after ordering. It arrived in perfect condition and the build quality and gauge of the metal is very impressive. Can’t wait to try it out. This is my second purchase from WoodMaxx having bought a SB-60 snowblower a few years ago that works great.

  47. Ryan Robinson

    After over 50 hrs. of use this year I can say this machine has already proven its worth. Runs flawlessly, makes small chips, and takes everything I throw at it.
    Fast shipping and great customer service.

  48. RT

    Setup does take a couple sets of hands to get everything in place correctly. It is not hard but it does take a some time to get the chute put together and the 3pt connections on. The MX-8800 is connected to a John Deere 3046R with Pats quick hitch on on the 3pt. I found that even with the 3pt connections as close to the machine as possible and my top link extended fully to 32″ the top link was still 5-6 inches short of being able to connect to the chipper. I happened to have a floating top link connection that I could use as an extension to get it hooked up and seems to work fine.
    I have now used the machine for about 2 hours chipping freshly fallen cottonwoods. I have ran legitimate 7 1/2″ branches through the chipper and it chews them up easily. The tractor just hums along, does not seem to be taxed at all by the chipper. The convenience of the hydrostatic infeed is very useful and simple to operate. So far so good.

    The MX-8800 arrived Wednesday afternoon and easily got it up and running after a couple of non-rushed hours on a Sunday afternoon. Note – you’ll need an extra set of hands for some of the assembly and managed to turn that task into some good laughs. We added 2 quarts of 10W 40 conventional oil and hooked it up to my 2018 John Deere 2032R tractor via a Woods quick hitch from a previous tractor we ran on our property. Note: we did not have to cut the premium PTO shaft for this setup. Spent 1.5 hours chipping 1 to 3 inch diameter branches from one of my many piles of willow, cherry, elderberry, ash, and oak branches cut from around our property’s fence line and drainage ditches. The chipper functioned flawlessly and the little tractor never missed a beat. The MX-8800 is a very well engineered and solidly built device made by hard working people from small town America – highly recommended!

    I purchased a Woodman MX-8800 wood chipper on 06/23/2017. Upon receipt of the machine I completed the assembly according to your excellent instructions. After that it was placed in my barn and remained there unused until just this past weekend when it was attached to my JD 2150 tractor. It worked like a charm beyond my expectations, and I look forward to many hours of successful chipping. It was a pleasure to do business with you and will be in touch when I am in need of service.

    I am really impressed, unloaded put together and went to work. I have 25 mulberry trees around the house and they need trimming every year, this makes the chore 10 times faster. It is not cheaply built and definitely one of the best investments I’ve purchased. Well worth the money.

    I have 3.2 hours on it and this machine has exceeded my expectations. I am a 65 year old retired machinist. In my opinion this is a simple but very effective design and the quality is second to none. It should provide many years of service. It makes me feel good that there is still a USA company that has pride in what they produce and are not using foreign made parts. Overall I would rate this as excellent. Thank you Wood Maxx.

    This review is about the delivery of my chipper from WoodMaxx. I haven’t yet used the chipper so I can’t comment on the machine itself but I would like to mention the EXCELLENT customer service I’ve received from WoodMaxx through my many calls and emails to them about technical questions and delivery options.
    Speaking of delivery, although their website says about five to seven business days it only took a day and a half to deliver my chipper to Canada, customs and all.

    Great service, WoodMaxx.

    The chipper arrived on a sturdy pallet wrapped in cardboard and plastic wrap. The packaging was not cheap but also not over the top. It was what I would expect to be used to protect a multi thousand dollar purchase. It was almost completely assembled. The assembly instructions were simple to follow and took maybe 30 minutes to complete. The chipper arrives bolted to the pallet. That consideration by Woodmaxx was appreciated. The operation of the chipper is just as advertised on the website. It performs well beyond what I expected and would highly recommend it to anybody. The hydrostatic feature is a very nice feature to ensure operator safety. The adjustable chip discharge chute works wonderfully and is a great feature. The MX-8800 is an all round excellent product.

    It took a while for the weather to cooperate enough for me to use the chipper, but it has been working great! I’ve got it connected to a Kubota L3830 and it handles it very well. I have a pretty big clearing project that I am working, and it’s chocked full of softer wood such as pine, poplar, sycamore, and cedar, which the chipper just gobbles up. I love the auto feed, too! Having it be able to work one in while I’m getting the next is a big time saver. Made in the USA Thanks, Woodmaxx!

    We have wanted a chipper since we retired on 11 acres of forest, but even used self powered chippers big enough to tackle the amount of branches we have to deal with run around 8-10,000 dollars with no warranty. This machine, at half that with three year warranty is awesome! On our 35 pto hp Kubota, this thing just keeps asking for more. Really well made in USA. Just what we needed.

    Did not want to write a review until I had put the chipper on test. I am well pleased. It has been used in my orchard to clean up apple, pear. Goes though 6 inch stuff with no problem. Have not done anything bigger as that goes for firewood. Will be getting a workout with all the Ash trees dying.
    Using it with a Mahindra 3540 with 31 HP at the PTO.
    Good company to deal with.

    Originally I was going to purchase the WM-8H which I’m sure is a great chipper. However I moved up to the MX-8800 with the American made PTO shaft when a buddy offered to “chip” in some money in exchange for occasional use. The MX-8800 and my Branson 3725R chew through the branches with ease and spit them out farther than I expected. The MX-8800 keeps up with two of us feeding the chute. The combination feed control/stop bar position is quite convenient ensuring safety while operating the chipper. The tachometer is nice feature as well to optimize performance of the chipper. I would recommend this model to friends.

    Put my MX8800 chipper together and took it out in the rain today to try it out. I had a substantial brush and limb pile up to 5 inches in diameter. Didn’t even phase this machine. It is on a Ford 3910 42 HP PTO and neither the chipper or the tractor cared what I put through it. I have a lot of Ash trees, Locust, and large Oak limbs that will be put through it and the ones I ran so far sailed right through. Tried some 3 inch diameter Honey Suckle that is aged and that sailed though also. This machine is quiet and does not vibrate. It is built heavy and with quality and I am super pleased with it. All the parts fit with precision and well finished with no rough edges. I will be telling my friends about the quality and design of this chipper. Way to go WoodMaxx! Made in USA and Veteran owned. Semper Fi!

    We purchase this awesome machine to clean up after we had 14 150′ fir trees removed that threatened our home. I have to admit that even after the research indicating it would work I was skeptical. Well after this initial project I must say it is everything advertised and more. I’m using a Kubota 26.5 HP diesel tractor and the pair is working flawlessly. I had a plan to sell it following the initial project but will now keep it in my attachment inventory. Great Machine!


    I bought the chipper to clean up our family ranch and was very apprehensive about spending this much money but I needed something durable that was going to get used quite a bit. I have had it over a month now and have really put it to the test. This thing is a BEAST, I seriously cant believe how well it works. I would say I have about 20 hrs hard use give or take and it hasn’t slowed down a bit. Knives still seem sharp as the chips are really nice. Soft stuff like cedar, hard stuff like dead dried up oak, doesn’t care. You can tilt the deflector all the way up and spray the chips all over for coverage or tilt it down and have a pile at your feet in no time. I am extremely pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone. Used on a JD 4044m with 35 pto hp which is plenty. Stop thinking and just buy it already.

    I got my chipper about a month back but due to schedule just have had a chance to test it. I had several large limbs and a tree top that came down earlier this year. they were dried out and hard. Most were about 2 inches they went through with no problem. I had a tree top that was about 6 inches. I decided to put it to the test. I slowed the roller down and put the top in. The roller grabbed it. The tractor did slow a little but the chipper was able to handle it no problem. It should handle the area I am going to clear with no problem. The assembly was no problem. I did get my wife to hold some of the panels till I got the bolts started. I did have a small leak in the Hydrostatic hose I tightened the connect will check again after I use it more..I am using a 1987 Massey Ferguson 240 tractor. PTO is rated 37 to 41 horse power.

  63. James Brogger

    Final assembly is straightforward. Put to work two days after delivery. Ate everything I fed into it with ease. Extremely pleased with this purchase. Only complaint is the manual. Lubrication is recommended every 10 hours; would have been nice to have a diagram showing the grease fittings. (WoodMaxx response, we will update the manual to show location of the grease fittings, thanks for the feedback)

    Chipper arrived yesterday. (Driver insisted I open it, not because it looked damaged, but because he wanted to get a look at it). I started to unpack it late in the day and decided it was better to leave it until this morning. Wow. I didn?t have the courage to even imagine the 8800 would actually work as described and advertised. Great work on the part of the engineers there. The heavy steel construction makes it vibration-free and it does indeed haul fir tops right in as I’d hoped it might. So far I’ve run stuff up to 4 inches in diameter just to work up my nerve running it. The speed it takes the wood through is just right for a one-person operation, without worrying that the tractor is running with nothing to do.

    The chipper was quite simple to assemble and check out. At start-up nothing was loose and there was no banging, etc. The chipper was really smooth. I have about 3,000 trees to process. The MX-8800 has been used for almost 4 hours now and it has performed perfectly. The output is exactly as I expected and the chips will be perfect for retaining rain water and shielding seeds for regrowth of our burned area. Throws chips as specified and the 360 degree rotation of the chipper output makes it convenient to spread the chips. I am chipping dry, burned Pinion and Juniper trees and they are not quite as easy as recently cut trees, but the chipper has taken up to a 5? tree trunk. I have a hard time keeping up with the feeder giving it 3? and down limbs. I have used other chippers including Vermeer commercial units. The performance of this unit is perfect and when you compare it to the price of the competition you will certainly find that the value is there.
