TM-86H Wood Chipper

The 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:

  1. Randy

    I use a Kubota L4701 with my unit (47 HP and 39 HP at PTO). I take care of 45 acres with about 35 acres in grass/tree combo. We trimmed close to 90 trees about 30 days ago. Since then I have been chipping (about 3 trees daily) and this unit performs. Running close to 25 hours now only a few issues have surfaced. First was a sheared PTO shaft bolt, quick fix. Second, bolts supporting the Hydraulic roller pump worked lose but again it was a quick fix. We have thrown pine, oak, sycamore, ash, cedar, sweet gum and popular in that chute and never a problem. I tire out from trimming branches and feeding before machine does. Would includes pics but site does not have that option. Know that buying this machine is a win-win if you want to get the job done.

  2. Kevin Davidson

    Works good with my Kubota BX1850, low end of HP range (13.7 PTO HP). I’m not chipping anything much over 2 inches in diameter, so the engine keeps up. No issues with 3-point lifting. The front bucket and mid-mount mower are installed, no problems with the front wheels getting light.

  3. Alex Armga

    I have seen quite a few reviews now saying the 86h is a slow chipper. Well here is some proof that it is not. This tractor is 25 PTO horsepower and it is going full speed ahead and yes this is hard wood. https://youtu.be/hqrcVG_GL48

    I spent quite a bit of time researching a wood chipper that could handle larger diameter branches and settled on Woodmaxx. I could not be more pleased with the chipper! We’ve already put several hours on it and it has chipped everything thrown at it. We are using a Mahindra EMax 22 which has plenty of power except for the largest hardwoods. Slowing down the feed rate helped with the large wood. The wait was not that long (as is for everything these days) but completely worth it. I Spoke with company representatives during the purchase process and everyone was extremely helpful. I’ve had no problems with setting the chipper up or adding the oil ( 15w-40 motor oil ) to the hydraulic tank. Although the opening for the reservoir is quite small.
    Great overall experience.

    I could not be more pleased with our chipper! We’ve already put several hours on it and it has chipped everything thrown at it. We are running it on a John Deere 1025R which has plenty of power except for the largest hardwoods. Slowing down the feed rate helped a bunch.

    I spent quite a bit of time researching and settled on Woodmaxx. The wait was long (as is for everything these days) but completely worth it. Spoke with company representatives several times during the purchase process and everyone was extremely helpful.

    A few notes:
    1. It took longer than the manual said to get the hydraulics working. The oil foamed up twice (over 2 days) but has been fine since. I chose Traveller brand from Tractor Supply and perhaps there are better brands.

    2. The 1025R needs to be at full throttle to lift the chipper on the 3 point hitch.

    I anticipate this chipper lasting us quite a long time!

  6. Richard Simonelli

    Ron O was great to work with ! After extensive research and review we selected Woodmaxx and are very glad we did. Everything went as Ron described, we ordered tailgate delivery the truck arrived on 5/20/21 as planned and communicated little hiccup we live on a dead end dirt road with gravel driveway and the steel wheel pallet jack was not going to do it. It was ok had dropped at the end of the driveway and assembled it there. Assembly was a breeze. The next day I ran a few trees through it with no problem. Live Oak, Orange, and Acacia. From 1 inch to 6 inch the machine took it all with no problem. I forgot to ask from my veteran discount so be sure to ask for one when buying one of these awesome machines!

  7. Richard T

    after talking to Ron O. and my review on the internet I ordered the WM-8H. After some help from Jessica, Joel and Kiara I received the machine. I put it together by myself and it took a lot longer than the manual said but my 6 year old grandson Silas has nick named me dubber so it fits. I looked the chipper over when I assembling it. Impressed with the size of bearings and shafts. My first trip out I was chipping 5 inch beech trees full length. I was impress. The machine chipped anything that I needed it to. About an hour on the chipper and a joy to run. Very good buying experience and a great machine. Hope Woodmaxx don’t want shipping crate back. 4 caster and a little fabrication and I can roll it around in my shop when not in use. Great overall experience.

  8. Chris A.

    Seems to be a great match in terms of size and performance for my Kubota B7800 (30hp/22pto). Ordering and delivery went smoothly. $35 for lift gate service is a great deal. I?ve paid much more in the past. Setup was straight forward. Unbolt from crate, bolt on lift arm pins, mount to tractor, and add oil. I had no issues re-sizing the PTO shaft to fit. I purchased the standard shaft. Although it is a basic no-frills shaft, it appears to be of pretty good quality compared to others I have received with equipment. I highly suggest downloading the manual online and reviewing it prior to delivery. Seems to be very well built. Nice finish and welds. After 3 hours of run time I?m very impressed. The flywheel and driveline are very well balanced. It spins up effortlessly and there is no noticeable vibration or noise. If it wasn?t for the tach (a nice feature), you would barely know it was moving. If you have ever used a manual feed chipper, reversible automatic feed is a dream come true. Just load it and walk away. If it doesn?t feed right, just back it out and re-position. The feed roller does a great job on big and small. I was even able to rake up the twigs and debris from the pile and toss that in. It easily chewed through some 4 inch hard stuff. The chute does a great job of putting the chips where you want them to go. I directed them into a small utility dump cart attached to my lawn tractor. Overall I?m very happy with my purchase and plan to get quite a bit of use out of it.

    I recently moved to a new place with 15 acres that has not been maintained in over 15 years. I need a chipper to allow me to deal with all of the material that needs to be cleaned up. After researching I selected the TM-86H. I have an older tractor (1988 White Field Boss 37) with plenty of power at the PTO. During the pandemic everything is constrained and I have been on the waiting list for some time. The purchase process was very straight forward and smooth. Delivery was also smooth; I opted for the lift gate option and recommend this if you have any doubt about getting the chipper off of the truck yourself.
    Setup was easy as the chipper is fully assembled and only required removal of 2 bolts securing it to the shipping pallet, install of the lift arms, unfold the feed chute, install the PTO shaft, and add oil the hydraulic reservoir (note it takes 15w-40 oil and not hydraulic oil). The instructions are clear and easy to follow on all points.
    I opted for the premium PTO shaft and it mated to my tractor without having to modify in any way. The shaft is balanced and I could tell the difference vs other PTO attachments I have as there was less vibration.
    During the first use I chipped a variety of material sizes from large to small. I set the feed speed at number 4 which was perfect for what I was doing. The resulting chips are uniform and will be good for paths or mulch. I am very impressed with the build quality, the paint finish, and the overall design. Highly recommend.

  10. Benjamin P.

    Delivery and setup was super smooth and my initial impression of the quality of the machine is that it is superb. The machine shipped very quickly and I received a call from the trucking company (Old Dominion in my case) within about 1 week from when I ordered the machine. I scheduled a delivery time for later in the week and the driver called about 20 minutes before his arrival. I paid for lift gate service and he lowered it down to the road for me at the end of my driveway. Unboxing was quick and easy. Basically just lift off the cardboard cover and then remove 2 bolts that hold the machine down to the steel pallet that it gets shipped on. The last thing to do was install the lift arms and then I was ready to hook it up to my tractor within about 10 mins of when it was dropped off the truck. Then, I was able to drive it up to my garage to finish the setup. There?s not much else to do, because the machine is fully assembled. I unfolded the infeed bin from it?s folded transport position. Then I added the required 5 gallons of oil into the hydraulic reservoir. I purchased this in advance so I?d be ready to work on day 1. The machine takes standard 15W-40 motor oil. Make sure you?ve got a funnel with a nice fine tip because the opening for the reservoir is quite small. Finally, the PTO shaft for me was essentially plug and play without need for shortening. I got the standard PTO shaft and this worked fine with my LandPride QH15 quick hitch on my Kubota B2650. I must also mention the WoodMaxx ?standard? PTO shaft is actually a fairly nice PTO shaft. Definitely just as nice, if not nicer, than a PTO shaft you?d get at Tractor Supply or the PTO shafts that came standard on my other LandPride implements. Once everything was done, I was basically ready to work in about 1 hour from when the truck dropped the machine off at the end of my driveway. My initial impression is that the machine is very high quality. My first few hours of chipping were smooth as butter. I?m hoping to get a lot of years of service out of this machine!

  11. Richard Wherley

    Orange and green (John Deere 2320 )look pretty good together. I can’t wait to get started using it on my timber. set up and delivery was extremely easy.

  12. Kevin F.

    My tractor is a Kubota B2320 with a 23 HP diesel and 18 HP at the PTO.
    After comparing the various models and particularly a competitors copy, I decided on the Woodmaxx hydraulic feed chipper. From comparison of the flywheels, blades, and construction, the Woodmaxx was the best value, in my opinion.
    The chipper was easy to assemble and connect to my Kubota.
    It required 5 gallons of standard hydraulic oil.
    I was pleased to find that the reversible hydraulic feed is easily activated. No problems with limbs up to 4″ in diameter. I feel that the safety bar could easily stop the feed, in the event of a clothing snag.
    I have used the Woodmaxx on cedar, pine, cherry, and Bamboo with good success. Bamboo requires a bit more persistence due to the smooth surface.
    It’s a pleasure to use, and piles of wood chips are so much more appealing than rotting limbs, or a burn pile. I highly recommend the TM-86H to anyone who is interested in purchasing a quality piece of hardware.

  13. John Anderson

    The chipper quality is great and it works very well with a 16 hp PTO for soft woods up to about 3 inches and hard woods up to about 2 inches. I have had to add significant weight (over 160 lbs) on the front of my compact tractor to balance out the weight and plan to add at least another 100 lbs. The chipper is a bit heavy for my tractor and the 3 point hydraulics struggle to lift it. Other than the weight I am very pleased and look forward to continued use.

  14. Lee

    Got my PTO chipper, seams to be quite well made, very rugged, I have a JD 2025R with 18 HP at the PTO, only trouble I had chipping was 5 inch hardwood, just need to get the hang of slowly adding wood to chipper, once thru the thickest end, no problem pulling the rest of the branch through, you do need to watch the nuts holding the feeder, had one that kept falling off, other then that very happy with machine

  15. Lawrence Barr

    Love this chipper. Works great in my avocado/citrus grove. Have it attached to a John Deere 1025R. The power feed pulls in brushey branches easily. Previously used a self powered DR chipper. The Woodmax does the job 10 times faster. Wish I would have had this product years ago.

  16. Richard A.

    I have a TM-86H Chipper and I wanted to let you know how much I love it. It is everything you say it is and more. I have had it for almost two years and it is wonderful. I could not be happier with my purchase. Keep up the good work and if need someone to advertise for your company just call me!

  17. Michael Kizer

    Awesome chipper, I put 8 hours on it the first two days. It was easy to hook up. Assembly was straight forward. A well built chipper, it took everything thing I could fit in it and made fast work out of it, great design, this is exactly what I needed for my 2.33 acres.

  18. Stephen Schulte

    The upgraded PTO is the BOMB. It is so easy to put on and off without cramping your fingers pressing the Spring button. The Chipper is really, really heavy duty. You need to really start with the PTO very low and bring it up to speed. I have an old JD that needs to be almost at stall mode when i engage the PTO, and then speed it up slowly. I sheared a few shear bolts learning the technique until i got the hang of it. (Order a few extra shear bolts). Once up to speed, the chipper really eats larger diameter material. I am so glad i bought the hydraulic feed. Old saying-“Buy the best tool and your never unhappy with it” ! Very Happy with this purchase (other than it being orange).

  19. Jeremiah

    This chipper is definitely a solid machine. Very well built, and has done a great job for me so far. I’ve used for about 10 hrs now and it’s still chipping like butter. The hydraulic infeed is an absolute must, so glad I spent the few extra hundred and got this unit. I couldn’t imagine chipping without it. My John Deere 1025R works pretty well with it. A little under powered if you’re trying to chip dense wood at the full 6 inches, otherwise its powered through everything else. It will do the denser stuff, just have to go slower.

    All in all, I love this chipper and I am glad I went with woodmaxx.

  20. tim hartman

    Wish I wouldn’t have put off buying this chipper. It is a beast. Handles a 4 in. Limb without bogging down my 25 hp tractor and chews through wood like it’s going out of style the bigger the better. Chips work great in the flower beds as well. Quick shipping and easy set up. You wont be disappointed

  21. Daniel Kowalski

    I’ve had this unit for 4 years now used primarily on a B2920 and I can say that it clearly stands well above the other options. I’ve used other chipper units on similar or slightly larger tractors and those chippers are louder and more jarring on the individual feeding the unit. This unit with its larger chute and hydraulic feeder is almost effortless at times when operating. Fantastic well built product and I highly recommend.

  22. J Payne

    This machine is amazing. I have put 5 hours on it and have gone through a ton of brush. I am absolutely amazed at how powerful it is on a small tractor. I am using a BX2380 and can go through about 4 inch branches before it stalls.

    The chute does plug up a lot, though just with vines, green leaves and twigs. If you stick to larger, bare logs, it does great.

    I did have issues with the premium shaft, but WoodMaxx stepped up and replaced it, so all good. There are a couple of other things I would like to see changed, mainly involved with clearing jams, but all in all, it’s great.

    This is an impressive and mighty machine and just amazing attached to a subcompact. It is definitely the most effective and productive attachment I have. I recommend completely.

  23. Bill

    Just put this chipper in service and it works fine. I’m clearing old windbreaks and overgrown trees. A lot of limbing with smaller 3 inch branches.The hydraulic feed is wonderful and necessary.
    Delivery freight went well and arrived in good condition. Liftgate service was worth $35.00. I ordered a Quick Hitch and I neglected to order the premium PTO. The regular PTO shaft is too short. Also I was missing a retaining pin that holds the infeed bin. A replacement pin is already on the way. The best thing about Woodmaxx is the company and staff. Quality business.They are friendly and know their products. Sometime I may upgrade to the US made MX-8800, but for now the smaller TM-86 will do what I need it for. Fast Forward after using the TM-86H for several hours of continuous chipping…I am really impressed, and I’m cancelling my plans to buy a MX-8800. The TM-86 is up to the task.

  24. Marty in Wisconsin

    Had the chipper for a few years and finally used it to chip up branches from 2 large oaks and 3 large maples. Did not have manual so it took a bit to get things figured out. Chipped my large dump trailer full over 2 days. Only issue was a loose hose (easily fixed) and a little fluid bubling out the vent in the cap on real heavy stuff. Took a minute to figure out stop and reverse by pushing stop bar a little further down. Other thing I learned was rotating slipping piece enabled them to grab n rollers and get gobbled up. Very happy with the purchase. Ran on Kubota B2150 tractor 21HP

  25. Rob G

    Just got the chipper and these are my first impressions. Build quality and finish looks good. I did some test runs and connected to a JD2305 it will eat through 4″ pine pretty easily. I was surprised. The hydraulic feed is a must have. So far this has exceeded my expectations and not having to drag huge piles to the burn pile is fantastic. I can go out and trim for a couple of hours and be done. The extra large opening works well, while it is bigger than what can be chipped whole, it makes for easy feeding of odd shapes branches.

    There are a couple of minor nits that prevent it from being perfect but what is. As others have stated the control bar could be moved in about an inch or two so the branches don’t shut off the feed. The oil fill could be larger, and finally they only had orange ones in stock. These all seem pretty minor except for the color. 😉

    Very happy so far with the purchase. Unit came quickly and very happy with my purchase.

  26. Kevin Wheeless

    I recently purchased this chipper along with the premium pto shaft upgrade to go behind a John Deere 1025R. The chipper is well built and actually out performed my expectations. It is a load for the 3 point lift using an iMatch quick hitch but it will lift it. Only thing I would change is the oil fill opening on the tank could be bigger. Ronald in sales was super friendly and knowledgeable. Machine was delivered on time in great condition. I have used it very little but have no reason to believe it will hold up for years to come.

  27. Mark

    The machine is a perfect mix of power and size; excellent for the DYI property owner.

  28. Justin

    We are running the WoodMaxx on our Kabota b2650. The chipper is very well built and is easy to operate. It makes tree trimming a lot shorter and not as hard on you. Thank You for a great Product!!!

  29. Troy Hart

    I have over 25 hrs on it mainly chipping old piles of hardwood and lots of cedar.
    It is amazing that it can almost chip anything that fits. Great product, only complaint is the feed handle loosens up often, only a minor issue though. My BX23s is enough power for it. Adjusting the feed speed is important!

  30. Bruce Glowac

    Wow, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this chipper. Well made and works like a champ. Very reasonable price for what you get.

  31. Jeffrey Edwards

    I was looking at a wm-8m which my buddy bought. When I was ordering the staff said it was to heavy for my ford 8n. They advised me that the tm-86h would be a better match. I was not happy the way the 8n was acting so I bought a kioti dk4510,45hp compared to 20 .Holly Cow what a difference, This chipper is a monster. It has taken everything that I throw in it .The adjustable feed is a big deal.
    Thanks for the referral with the tm-86h

  32. steven

    High quality and made to last. Ran it with my mahindra 24 max. It chipped everything I have put through so far without an issue. I would highly recommend it to anyone that is in need of a chipper. It will do anything I need to do.

  33. Alex Armga

    I can not even tell you guys how amazing this little chipper is! I was looking for something small but yet it is so big on power and performance! This thing not only impressed me but everyone that gets a chance to use it. 100% satisfied customer right here. Do not forget the customer service is pretty good also.

  34. David V.P.

    I’ve had the TM-86H chipper for a few months now and have about 15 hours on it. I have it on a 17 hp(PTO) TYM compact tractor and it has performed great. I have chipped hardwood up to 4″ and softwood up to 5-6″. The only thing I have found is that if you put in rotting wood in the early spring (full of water and frozen) it will bog the chipper down. Other than that I am very satisfied with this chipper and it is getting a very good workout on my logged 20 acres.

  35. Rafael Cortada

    I have had my chipper for over a month now and could not be more pleased with it. It is well built and comes well protected. Expensive yes but you get what you pay for. I had quite a bit of limps to dispose of and some of them were 3-4 inches in diameter. The TM-86H performed like a champ. Paired with my 1025R I am sure I will have years of excellent service.

  36. Robert Clews

    So I took delivery of my new machine after selling my Wallenstein BX42 hooked it up to my Kubota BX25 and what a machine !!
    It tore up what used to be a royal pain with my other chipper, the auto feed is outstanding and the overall quality is first class, if you have a compact tractor this is definitely the way to go.
    I have over 800 pines around my property and chipping fallen limbs used to be a real chore, this monster is fun, it eats up 5 inch limbs with ease, The only limitation is the weight of the branches you try to feed in, but once you get them in the hopper away they go, the machine is flawless. If you are looking at chipper options, look no further, I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

  37. Jonathan B

    Very powerful chipper and the added features of the adjustable shoot and hydraulic feed allow you to chip up your pile of branches in no time. I have mine hooked to a New Holland Boomer 20 and it has plenty of power to eat up Pin Oak branches up to 4 inches. Anything bigger than that I cut up for firewood. So far I have trimmed up 6 trees and have hauled away 12 cart loads of wood chips after having it about a month.

  38. Michael Sember

    I have this chipper mounted on a Kubota BX2370. I ordered the standard PTO shaft with it. Keep in mind that the PTO shaft will need shorted for a Kubota Sub-Compact. I ran the chipper about 5 hours so far. I’ve been incredibly impressed. It’s been able to handle about 5″ pine with the tractor barely breaking a sweat.
    Hands down, my favorite feature on this chipper is the hydraulic feed roller. This is an absolute must.
    If I had to list ANY negatives,it’s this.
    1) The feed/stop bar sit forward of the feed shoot. So when feeding branches, it frequently hits the bar stopping the hydraulic roller. I can (and will be) fixing this.
    2) The oil fill hole is TINY. You will need a very small funnel. It makes dumping 5 gallons of oil into the reservoir very tedious. Take note WoodMaxx, in your next revision make that filler hole larger!
    Overall, I’m beyond happy with my purchase. It’s been a life saver so far! Honestly the only two “negatives” I’ve found aren’t enough to drop it to 4/5.

  39. Kim K

    One little startup bump: the feeder would not run in the forward direction without me constantly pulling up on the safety bar. Turns out the link between the safety bar and the hydraulic control valve was binding. I flipped the link to the other side of the safety bar mount to give it a straighter line to the valve and it now works perfectly.

    It chips everything I can fit in the feed opening. Brush, branches, twigs, whole trees – everything goes through easily. So far only a few gnarly branches had to be broken down to get them to feed. Reverse comes in quite handy.

    I am running the TM-86H on a JD 1026R. My tractor is just a bit underpowered for the biggest (5″-6″) trees. But they will still go through at a slow enough feed rate. Everything else goes through in a breeze.

    I’ve had the TM-86H for a few weeks now. It is amazing to me how fast my brush piles have been cleaned-up. I am so far very satisfied and highly recommend this machine.

  40. Michael Franchino

    Purchased chipper for use on an Isiki/Bolins G152 tractor. I was a little concerned about power needed to run chipper. My small tractor is more than enough to run this chipper. The TM-86H is excellent! It far excedes my expectations. This is a well built machine. I am chipping a variety of woods, including oak. After a few hours of use I inspected the cutting knives. They looked exactly as new. Based on this machine, I will consider other products from WoodMaxx!

  41. Glenn B

    The entire transaction from ordering to shipping was perfect. Using the chipper was a pleasure after struggling with other type/brands. Highly recommend WoodMaxx.

  42. Jim Roberge

    This chipper will do everything as advertised. I have it on the back of a JD-2025R and no stall /bog down issues at all. Had a few issues with the chipper and what that resulted in was I quickly learned WoodMaxx stands behind there product 100% and (Joel ) in the service department is top notch. All issues resolved. If your looking for a great 6″ chipper / and the all important great service, this is it.

  43. Todd – Production Manager

    I ordered this chipper in hopes it would help me take care of a very over grown and over planted yard I purchased. I cut down over 70 trees including a hedge of 4″ diameter Lilacs and 2, 55′ high black ash trees. This is more than a chipper. It is a tree limb eating a machine. It is more than I anticipated. I am a fabrication supervisor and I am very impressed with the quality and performance of this chipper. I have a John Deere 1025R and this pair works great together. Highly recommended.

  44. LEE RUPERT

    The shipping crate has sharp edges that will cut write through nylon straps if you opt to pickup the.

    The assembly process was easy, although the crate is now different than what the manual shows. The oil reservoir takes time to fill with such a small fill hole

    Upon completion of the assembly process it was time to try it out on the 75 ft hemlock that fell within inches of my house. The main reason I purchased this unit was to deal with the disease that is killing my hemlocks.

    The unit worked great and handled the hemlock branches with ease. But, I had one problem that was not address in the TROUBLESHOOTING guide, under Problem: “unit won’t feed limbs properly”. The in-feed roller lifted high enough that the locking pin engaged and locked the roller in the up position, I needed to remove this pin as it got damaged and I could not pull it back out.

    Great unit.

  45. Jacob Pratt

    I did a lot of research before finally deciding to go with WoodMaxx and I am very happy with the TM-86H. I have a 38hp tractor and I can chip anything that fits in the hopper! The chute was damaged during shipping however the WoodMaxx Customer service was great and took care of the problem promptly. I would certainly recommend this chipper to anyone looking for a solid well built unit.

  46. Paul Castle

    An American made product that performs as advertised. Had it set up and running in a couple of hours, then fed knotted twisted elm branches into it all day without a hiccup. I would recommend this product to anyone, and have already told a few of my friends about it. Thank you and keep up the great work at Woodmaxx!

  47. Tracy Lynch

    Perfect size chipper for my John Deere 1025r – works great.

  48. David Gray

    Just got my TM-86H yesterday and I am chipping today. Just finished chipping my Oak tree trimmings and this chipper went thru them like butter! The set up was super easy and the delivery was spot on. I hooked this up to my LS MT-125 tractor with 17.5 hp at the PTO and set the switch to 7 and it ate thru the oak like nothing. I bought the Delo 15-40 oil at O’Reillys and it works great. Another thing I like about this chipper is the easy storage you just lift up the bin and it makes a almost perfect square. I recommend this chipper and I gave it 5 stars!

  49. Michael M

    I purchased the TM-86H to use behind a John Deere 670 tractor. I have 10 hrs on it now. the chipper works great. The blades are still sharp and we were chipping one to three inch pinon. I think the 670 is rated for 16 HP at the shaft. I was worried this would not work very well. I was wrong, the chipper works great, never bogs down. If you guys could cut me a deal I might spring for one of the backhoe attachments. Very happy with the chipper, thanks

  50. Happy Customer

    Totally a five star piece of equipment. I am using this chipper with my Massey Ferguson GC1720 (25 HP with 19HP at the PTO). I have chipped 5″ dried pine, and up to 4″ maple, oak, beech and birch limbs. Eats them for breakfast! Totally rips right through anything I have fed it thus far with no discernible stress. Absolutely fantastic chipper worth every penny. Delivery was perfect. Packaging was perfect. After a ton of research, I settled on the WoodMaxx TM-86H and I could not possibly be more satisfied. Great design, built like a tank and customer support is superb. It feels so good to say something positive about a product and the company behind it. The best – no BS!

  51. Todd Dutil

    I purchased the TM86H just recently, and already it has exceeded all of my expectations. It was purchased to be used on a choose and cut Christmas tree farm to chip both fir trees and hardwood brush. The chipper was coupled up to a Massey 1742 which is 38 horsepower at the p.t.o. and it was able to chip anything from a whole 8 foot fraser fir with a 5 inch trunk to a hard maple top which was also 5 inches at the base with very minimal trimming. Would highly recommend this chipper.

  52. Michael Callaghan

    I bought the TM-86H Wood Chipper last summer. I am totally satisfied with the unit. A true work horse. Everything was packaged well and really all that was needed was the 5 gallon’s of fluid to fill it.

    Just for anyone out there wondering the size tractor you can use for this unit. I have a Kubota Grand L3540 with a factory cab. I was worried the tractor would be to big for the unit, but it works perfectly with it. It is also easy to maneuver with while on the tractor, b/c it is a small unit. I believe the biggest diameter we put in was 4 to 5 inches. It went thru it with no problem. The hydraulic feed makes things much easier as well.

    Also, Woodmaxx recommends checking all the nuts and bolts, to make sure they are tight and didn’t loosen in shipment. I did exactly what they recommended, and I ran into no problems. No tightening was needed.

    I would definitely recommend this unit. Most likely will buy another attachment from Woodmaxx.

  53. Brian Perry

    Great chipper. I have a older Kubota 275 with 23hp pto. Did have a issue with a oil leak at the tank that was taken care of by the great service team at WOODMAX. Just chipped a dead pine that was over 60′ tall and it chipped all of the branches with no problem!! I have a hour 1/2 on it no problems at all. Great chipper, would highly recommend

  54. Jerry Erbe

    Received the the TM-86H in perfect condition and in green! After following the setup instructions, we went to work on a gnarly brush pile. This is without a doubt the best chipper I ever ever used ! The combination of the John Deere 2025R with the TM-86H attached decimated that mess. Can’t wait to use it again; but not to soon! LOL

  55. Kevin

    I used this chipper on a BX2660 tractor with 19.5 hp at the PTO and a landpride quick hitch QH05. The shipping crate did not have a metal top but was wrapped with carboard and shrink wrap. It had only a small place where the paint was rubbed. Setup was straight forward and took about an hour. I started using it the next day cleaning up an old brush pile. I started feeding it larger and larger branches to find the limit. The tractor stopped on a 3 1/2 inch dia. dried red oak branch. Everything smaller went through without any problems. The hydraulic feed is awesome and works just as explained on the website. The only issue is my quick hitch does not go low enough to hookup when the chipper in on the floor. I just carry a couple of 2X6 to put under the chipper before lowing. A side benefit of this is the PTO drive is straighter when running the chipper. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a quality, well-built chipper. Also, it was nice doing business with a veteran friendly company.

  56. Tim

    Received the chipper with some paint scraped off from shipping, otherwise it was in nice shape. This unit is very solid. After reading the manual, setup was very simple and straight forward. I have a Kubota BX 2660 and I had to cut the pto shaft to size. I do not have a quick hitch so it was a little time consuming to hook the chipper to the tractor. I’ve only used the chipper for about an hour so far, but it worked very well. The unit is very well built and seems very solid while in use. I chipped mostly spruce and balsam bows and some branches up to about 3 inch and the chipper had no issues. I also chipped some small 2 inch or so cherry without a problem. I’m very impressed so far and am looking forward to many years of use.

  57. Mike

    I struggled to decide which PTO driven wood chipper to get. Read all the boards on this one vs that one and was still not sure. I have a Kioti CK3510HST with 28 HP at the PTO. I could have gone with the WM-8M but storage of implement is a problem for me so I went with the TM-86H. I Could not be happier! it transports through tight areas of trees and stores on my covered barn porch perfectly. With 28 HP I can chip pretty much anything I can put in it. I Have lots of 4-5 inch 30 ft (hard and softwood) trees that I can just cut down and stuff into the TM. Only issue I’ve run into is that trees with branches sometimes stop the hydraulic roller by hitting the bar. no big deal I just reach over and hold it past the branch. Great service too! Did not realize the Kioti (with Pat’s quick connect) needs a longer PTO Shaft. Called them up and they got me the right size in a couple days. They also answered all my dumb newbie questions with great interest. I Couldn’t be happier with my purchase!

  58. Rick Heisler

    I’ve had my TM-86H for a week now and have already put 8 hours on it. I was concerned my 18 HP PTO would be a problem, but was very happy to see that was not the case. I was able to chip 5 inch cedar with no problem at all. The variable speed feed was a big help with the larger logs. I was able to put branches in the hopper and walk away. The self feed is very reliable and strong enough to fold small branches as they pass into the hopper. Have fun

  59. Breck McDonald

    An excellent chipper. I use it on a MF 1547 approx. 50 horsepower. It has chipped ever thing from twigs to 5 inch cedar and pine with out slowing down one bit or getting plugged. Very satisfied with the purchase and the customer service

  60. Ed C

    This chipper is everything I expected. Works great on my JD 1025R. The hydraulic feed is a great feature. This machine has no problem chipping 4″ diameter logs. Used 2 weekends in a row, no problems, the machine is a beast. My only complaint is I ordered a green one to match my tractor, and they sent me an orange one.

  61. Thomas J Decembrino

    Have a Massey Ferguson 2410 that I use with the TM-86 Wood Chipper.Works very good with my tractor. It’s a little tight getting it mounted on the 3 point because of the bracket for the back-hoe but it makes it. Bought the USA drive shaft and is a prefect fit. Chipper works great and does as advertised. I would recommend this chipper to any one owning a sub-compact tractor. Weighing at 600 lbs I can still get around in my woods, but one needs to to careful of the hydraulic lines getting snagged, I secured mine out of the way a little bit. After a few times using I needed to tightened up a few fittings but that was about it as far as any problems. I chipped one day in the rain and the shoot clogged up with wet leafs but was easily cleared, I wouldn’t recommend chipping in the wet until after the leafs fall. I would buy this again.

  62. Kevin N

    This is the question I asked myself upon using my TM-86H for the first time. This machine is EXTREMELY well built. It is definitely worth the money. I am using it with my Kubota BX24…and it works beautifully. Just make sure your infeed speed is set for the type of material you are chipping, and away it goes! It’s nice to find an American-made piece of equipment that is THIS exceptional. All I can say is I love it! (If you’re debating purchasing it, go ahead…you won’t regret it.)

  63. Paul E. Crandall

    Worth every penny. It continues to exceed my expectations. VERY durable. Eats everything I can fit into the feed. Great engineering.
    I use it with my Massy Ferguson 19 hp PTO model GC 1710. A perfect match.
    Don’t hesitate to make the investment.
    I give it a 10 out of 10.

  64. Craig Lucca

    I have been researching PTO mounted wood chippers for my JD 1025r for several weeks. I went to my local power equipment dealer to ask his advice and he said he heard a lot of good things about Woodmaxx so I thought I would give it a try.
    I put about 12 hours on the chipper between a saturday and a sunday and was floored by how much I could run through it, how consistent it chipped, and how fast I could work with the power feed option. Even my wife was amazed at how much of our property was cleared after just one weekend. We’ve been taking down trees for 2 years and while we can burn a lot of the bigger stuff, most of the little stuff was in huge piles. No more, they’ve been chipped and have made great footing for our chicken and turkey pens. I was previously renting a unit for almost $200 a day, at this rate the TM86 will pay for itself after 8 more uses.
    Thanks Woodmaxx

  65. Robert

    I bought this chipper to help with maintaining our property. All I can say is AWESOME! This unit took a pile of brush down to a large yard cart full in about 15minutes. With the smaller unit I have it would have easily been an hour or more. Great Unit Woodmaxx!! Thanks!

  66. Richard Kinder

    Delivery was perfect, shipped on time. Chipper took some time to fill with hydr fluid so get a funnel. This chipper is excellent. Used on a JD4100 and it made short order of piles of tree parts. Ran for hours had no problem with big or small branches or trunks. Nice to have a chipper that has a hands off feed system. Love this thing!

  67. Chad Kraft

    After purchasing this chipper I wish I would have got sooner. I have 15 hours on it now and run it on a John Deere 1025r and love it no problems with it at all. Makes small work of brush.

  68. Mike

    I did a lot of research before purchasing the TM-86H. I got it originally after seeing it was the biggest bang for the buck. But let me expound on that. I have only had the chipper a couple of months now and already put 20 hours on it. I have yet to find something it can’t get through. This machine is awesome. I must also say that WoodMaxx has the best customer service that I have ever dealt with. They are extremely helpful and take the time to explain each product to you to make sure your are really getting what you need. For me Jim took the time to explain the chipper, its capabilities when paired with my JD 2032R, and key pieces to consider when conducting maintenance. It was by far one of the best buying experiences I have ever had.
    Due to this experience…..I am buying a backhoe attachment through them as well. THANKS WOODMAXX!!! Keep up the great work.

  69. Robert Goodman

    I researched this chipper pretty thoroughly before ordering. Works great with my 2016 JD 2025R. No surprises. 3-year warranty, so I’m not worried about future surprises either. I have the iMatch, so I also ordered the USA made PTO. No modification of the PTO shaft was required for my setup. Just add oil, attach the tension spring, verify that the flywheel is clear and everything is tightened. Works as advertised.

  70. Bill

    After owning a BearCat PTO chipper for years I knew the hydraulic feed would be a great improvement. But still I am amazed at just how much easier, safer, less violent and less tiring it is to not have to stuff material into the hopper by hand. I am also pleasantly surprised that even with only 16.4 PTO HP my Kubota BX2230 powers the 86H with no problem. Even 3″ – 4″ pine goes through at the fastest feed rate. For garden mulch I slow down the feed which makes finer chips, but to just dispose of brush in a hurry I set feed speed to max and this machine eats it alive as fast as I can stuff it in with no noticeable engine loading. Another surprise was only needing the front loader on the tractor to counterbalance the chipper.

    The build quality is great and I found only a couple of minor adjustments were needed. The new electronic tach and hour meter are great features to ensure correct PTO speed and keep track of maintenance.I just wish I had found this machine sooner!

  71. Jeff

    I love this chipper but a little more information that doesn’t seem to be shown. This chipper will take trees with branches and ones covered in leaves and needles perfectly without having the feed roller slip or clogging. My only regret is I didn’t take a video of it swallowing up those so I could post it. It will eat the non perfect branches with ease. I have used several of the pull behind models with 30hp engines and this one feeds better and with my 18pto hp I don’t really see where it is much slower than those. With a little more hp I would be going faster than those other models.

  72. Gary Romberg

    I wish I would have bought this about 10 years ago. It makes the job of brush removal much easier. The design, construction and materials are all very good. The hydraulic feed makes the job so much easier. I have rented a few different chippers and owned 1 other one. This is the best one I have used.

  73. Ralph Frazier (verified owner)

    This chipper works really good hooked up to my John Deere 2320 tractor. I can chip 4″ trees with branches and leaves with no problem. Just set the proper feed rate and off you go. The hydraulic feed does all the work. The people at WoodMaxx are very good, you can’t ask for better customer service. I have 2 acres of woods that I am cleaning up. The TM-86 was the right choice. Very high quality machine.

  74. Roger King

    This does a great job up to 3.5 inches with a Kubota BX. The hydraulic feed takes the scare of push feeding away.

  75. Doug

    I purchased the TM-86H and couldn?t be happier. I work this machine often in steep/rough terrain removing conifer from oak woodland areas. Can access many areas I could never get to with a pull-behind chipper. The unit requires 15 HP min. at the PTO, whereas my Kubota B8200HST 4X4 tractor is only rated at 14.5. That being the case, I was at first skeptical of how much production I would get from this combination. I rarely have to feed at a rate less than 75 fpm. Have operated my TM-86H a total of 752 hours under extreme conditions with no more than normal wear and tear. Did have a sticking feed valve handled promptly under warranty. Also had issues with internal pitch buildup, which has been eliminated by fabricating/installing a bio-diesel injection system. Am contemplating the purchase of a larger tractor/chipper combination and will look no further than the MX-9900 if I decide to upgrade.

  76. david graham

    This is an awesome chipper! Thanks to the help from Jim in customer service, I purchased the TM-86H for my JD 855. It really eats though branches 3-4 inches with ease. I have 8 acres of large fir trees to clean up after winter storms. This machine is well built and easy to use. Thanks WoodMaxx.

  77. Virg

    Ordering-easy on line.Questions answered quickly by phone/email.
    Delivery-12 days after order,easily scheduled,on time & lift gate service w/pallet jack put unit where needed.
    Workmanship-everything in place, welds smooth and full with no slag. No sharp/rough edges.Be sure to check everything before operating as instructed.
    Operation-18hp PTO,does a good job after using ~6 hrs. Chipped green logs up to 4″, but did notice slow down so keep them short. Hydro lever could use more travel between directions.In feed works well, but controls do get hot. Have issues with oil leaking around fill spout,particularly if unit slants to that side. In feed has slight misalignment where it folds and meets roller housing, so small limbs tend to get hung up.
    Knives-No local machine shop could sharpen. Lancaster Knives, maker of A8 set, sharpens CR12 & A8 sets for $50. USPS shipping of ~$7 each way, total is ~$65. Still cutting well on first side, but being careful to limit the larger dry limbs.

  78. Steven Pecenka

    I’ve used my chipper 5+ hours since receiving it last week. Great packing job- it was delivered in the rain, but was barely wet when I unwrapped it, and not a dent or scratch to be found. I’ll admit I was worried that I might not have enough tractor (JD 1023E) but even though it has the minimal needed hp, it works great as long as I keep the size of the branches below 3-3 1/2 “. Since it is primarily honeysuckle and other brush I’ll be chipping, that’s fine. Anything bigger I’ll burn in the wood stove. Being able to adjust the speed of the hydraulic feed helps a lot. I’m impressed with the strength and quality built into this machine, and would recommend it to anyone thinking about getting a chipper for a small horsepower tractor.

  79. Guy

    Set-up was straightforward and well explained. I appreciate getting a solid piece of machinery that performs as advertised with no fuss, no tinkering, and no excuses. Machine performed flawlessly and is perfectly sized for my Mahindra 2015 4WD; reducing a large pile of small trees to chips in no time! I would definitely recommend this machine.

  80. Bryon G.

    Set up was a breeze once I figured out that the hydraulic feeder had to be lowered to get the spring attached. Kubota BX 2200 lifts it using a quick hitch and powers it, no issues. Did not have to cut the pto shaft as the quick hitch extends lower 3 pt arm length from 20 to 24 inches. Used it for about 60 min so far on 1-4 inch oak branches. The hydraulic feed was set at 3 which seems plenty fast. It didn’t bog the tractor down, no rpm reduction, just perfect chips.

    This is a well thought out and engineered chipper. The ability to control the speed of the hydraulic feeder and the bar to stop, engage or reverse is a great safety feature. The folding hopper and small footprint make it easy to store in the garage. It’s light enough to set it on an inexpensive 1 ton furniture dolly to move it around for storage.

    Count me impressed, it gets an A+ rating.

  81. Gail

    NC suffered an ice storm (a while back) which prompted us to order a TM-86H because our Case IH 1140 couldn’t take a larger chipper. What a wonderful choice we made (two little old ladies)! We clocked about 13 hours getting the house and barn yard tree-damage free. It took everything. With the 360 degree chute, all was neatly condensed into the tree lines. There?s a learning curve about any trees with aggravated angles and how best organize your areas into work locals because you feel as though you need to be efficient in feeding the chute ? in other words, it will work you to death before you know it. Very well made and substantial with top quality components. People stop in the driveway while we?re using it to ask about how well we like it and we always give them the highest of praise. We cannot say enough about the people working there ? they are super nice and helpful.

  82. Max

    The TM-86H… has worked very well. Servicing the knives is a dream, takes less than 30 minutes to reverse of change the blades and is a one man job! The hydraulic feed is also a great feature and allows me to change the in-feed rate when chipping a large limb and to reverse in the rare case when we plug the chipper. This machine is very well designed and manufactured and well worth the price. Before you purchase another brand be sure to compare the method of servicing the knives!

  83. DOUGLAS WILLS

    I just received my wood chipped a couple days ago. It was very easy to set up and get running. I ended up putting a 3″ block under each side of the base in order to keep the PTO shaft straight with the tractor shaft.

    I chipped wood with it pretty much all day. With the exception of having to clear a few branches out once in a while and fixing a minor bend where it clogged up (from putting too large of a branch in), it worked flawlessly.

    Definitely recommend!

  84. Wayne B.

    I purchased one of your TM-86H chippers for my 24 horsepower Kubota in late May and I must say that I am delighted with the machine. I was able to clean up lots of storm damaged fallen limbs and it was so easy that I found some other work for it. No more brush piles for this guy.

  85. Kevin

    Last month I bought a manual feed chipper (made in China) from another company. The chipper had design flaws and was poorly manufactured, so I returned the unit. After searching for another unit, I decided to buy the Woodmaxx TM-86H hydraulic feed chipper which is made in China too. Unlike the chipper that I returned, the TM-86H is well engineered and manufactured to strict quality standards. The hydraulic feed feature makes chipping safe, easy, and possible on a small tractor. All you need to do is set the branch in the hopper, and machine does the rest. The controlled speed allows you to chip larger branches than a manual feed unit. Without a feed, a small tractor may bog down or kill because the branch is pulled through too quickly. The chipper works well on my Kioti 19HP PTO. The tractor easily chips 4″ limbs without bogging down. If you need to do serious chipping using a small or larger tractor you should consider the TM-86H.

  86. Mark V.

    I researched all the options out there for my Kubota BX25 and I can’t believe people would even consider a gravity fed machine…I basically bought a wood chipper because i’m making quad trails on my 24 acres and i like things neat and clean, I know a bit over the top however once its all chipped i put the chips on the trails…I chip up everything up to 4 inches then I use the rest for firewood fantastic little machine that gets into all the trails no problem.

  87. Kevin

    My tractor is a Kubota B2320 with a 23 HP diesel and 18 HP at the PTO. After comparing the various models and particularly a competitors copy, I decided on the Woodmaxx hydraulic feed chipper. From comparison of the flywheels, blades, and construction, the Woodmaxx was the best value, in my opinion. The chipper was easy to assemble and connect to my Kubota. It required 5 gallons of standard hydraulic oil. I was pleased to find that the reversible hydraulic feed is easily activated. No problems with limbs up to 4″ in diameter. I feel that the safety bar could easily stop the feed, in the event of a clothing snag. I have used the Woodmaxx on cedar, pine, cherry, and Bamboo with good success. Bamboo requires a bit more persistence due to the smooth surface. It’s a pleasure to use, and piles of wood chips are so much more appealing than rotting limbs, or a burn pile. I highly recommend the TM-86H to anyone who is interested in purchasing a quality piece of hardware.

  88. K. ORR

    farmed for 30 years, and have been a machinist for 20 years, I’ve had a few pieces of equipment that I thought were made the way they should be, but this chipper is above and beyond that. The 86h is one of the finest pieces of equipment that I’ve ever owned, well made , simple, and does just what it’s supposed to do. I’ve got it on a john Deere 1025r, and it’s taken 6 inch limbs without even pulling the engine down. I’ve had it since February and chipped at least 10 pickup loads with it. High quality piece of equipment, just keep it greased and knives sharp and I think it will last a life time, thank u for the quality product .

  89. Ralph F. (verified owner)

    This chipper works really good hooked up to my John Deere 2320 tractor. I can chip 4″ trees with branches and leaves with no problem. Just set the proper feed rate and off you go.

  90. Scott Mccutcheon

    I own and live on a ranch with 220 ac. of timber in N. Idaho. I burn wood for heat and own a small sawmill to make my own lumber. I use the chipper for reducing my slash and brush as well as chipping the bark from the saw logs. My wife uses the chips for landscape and driveway.
    This chipper has worked wonderfully for me and has reduced my slash burning (I still burn the rose bushes because they tend to grab me with their barbs when I try to chip them).
    I did have one problem with a part braking, but Woodmaxx sent me a new part under warranty (shipped the same day I contacted them). Even though the part broke two years after I purchased the chipper, it was covered under warranty. GREAT SERVICE!

  91. Ken Carter

    The WoodMaxx chipper is a well designed unit, I have worked it very hard this (past) spring. The TM-86H works well on my Kubota BX2370, you have to have front counter weight on the front of the tractor, so when you are going up a hill. The TM-86H is easy to work and to transport around to the work site, I have not ever had any problem with this unit. WoodMaxx support keeps you updated on any changes. I tell all my friends about this chipper, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a trouble free and easy-to-operate piece of equipment. The purchasing experience with WoodMaxx is very smooth. Thank you WoodMaxx for making my work easy!

  92. Kenneth Hamilton

    I rarely write reviews, good or bad, but after running my TM-86H chipper (for the first time) this weekend I had to say how great this chipper is.

    I hooked it up to my 2320 24 HP John Deere Compact Utility Tractor and couldn’t believe how easily the hydraulic feed pulled in the 4″ logs and how easily it chipped the logs with and without branches. The guys helping me (who knew nothing about the chipper) were in shock when they saw what the chipper could do. Setup was minimal and the online descriptions and videos are accurate. This is an incredible machine at a great price…well done WoodMaxx!!!

  93. AAR

    The TM86H required virtually no assembly and I was able to connect to my ?93 Kubota B7100 with 16HP. I was very concerned that my tractor would not be able to support this but it can lift it (without the quick connect hitch) and operates just fine. I used to rent a Vemeer chipper in prior years, this year, we were hit very hard with the ash borer so I had 3 large brush piles each 8 foot high and 10 foot wide filled with stick ash trees, large branches 2 to 3 inch diameter, large grape vines, twisted Hawthorne branches, vines, you name it, the TM86H was able to mulch all of it. I did have to pause it every now and then mostly to let the tractor engine keep up, but overall the pile required no more prep than it would have for the Vermeer. I log everything larger than 3 inches for fire wood, The angled feed bin worked much better than I expected with 15 ft long stick trees, and the bin worked great for quickly gathering and throwing in the small sticks and mulch them as well.

  94. Terry Potter

    I did a lot of research before deciding to buy a TM-86H from Woodmaxx. Since receiving my chipper I have not been disappointed. I can’t add much to all the glowing reviews about this unit except WOW ! This is a wonderfully well designed and built piece of heavy duty machinery that does exactly what Woodmaxx says it will.

    I am using my new chipper with a small, well used Yanmar tractor which has a 19HP diesel. I’ve alreadly fed it a nearly 6″ diameter limb by slowing down the hydraulic feeder rate a bit and it barely slowed down the the tractor ! This monster chips stuff faster than I can feed it and does it without needing to trim off anything other than large side limbs.

    I’ve only had this unit for 2 days and in a couple hours use, I’ve already generated a huge mound of chips that would have taken me a couple of days and a lot of sweat to create using my old 10HP Troy-bilt. What a time saver ! I expect to continue enjoy using my TM-86H chipper for many years to come.

  95. Max Young

    We are nearing the first winter using the TM-86H and it has worked very well. Servicing the knives is a dream, takes less than 30 minutes to reverse of change the blades and is a one man job! The hydraulic feed is also a great feature and allows me to change the in-feed rate when chipping a large limb and to reverse in the rare case when we plug the chipper. This machine is very well designed and manufactured and well worth the price. Before you purchase another brand be sure to compare the method of servicing the knives!

    I took delivery about 2 weeks ago. Assembly was ok — you definitely need to be able to move the pallet around.

    I am totally impressed with the performance of the machine. I am using a JD 2305 to drive it. I have used it for close to 12 hours of steady work. It easily takes 4″ material. I am feeding multiple branches through at the same time. The worst is sumachs — very knarley and they get stuck in the chute. But I am very pleased with the performance. The hydraulic feed is worth its weight in gold. I was considering a Wallenstein with gravity feed. So glad I found WoodMaxx.

  98. Kenneth M. Carter

  99. Eric Hoffman

    The instructions [for the TM-86H] were very clear, and set up a ‘snap’. It has been a delight to use, and cleaning up all the brush piles and making mulch and compost in minutes is terrific. Helpful friendly staff, and shipping to Canada!

  100. Peter Rupert

    After several weekends reviewing numerous PTO chippers and concerned that my 23HP wouldn’t be powerful enough I was relieved to find the TM86H! It arrived 2 weeks after purchase and we were able to use it that weekend! We’re very pleased with it’s performance as it has exceeded our expectations. We’ve been clearing piles of branches on our own property & our neighbor’s as well. We’ve fed through hard & soft woods and have consistently received uniform chippings. I like the auto feed’s speed adjustment as well as the safety bar on the in-feed bin. Neighbors who’ve witnessed it’s operation are all impressed and are looking into purchasing their own. The quality of the unit and it’s ease of setup/ operation have more than made it a good investment. We’ve burned out many smaller units in the past, but see this one lasting for a long time on our farm. My wife and I have nothing but praise for the people who built our unit, as well as those who answered our questions before & after the sale.

    I was a bit skeptical about ordering this kind of equipment over the internet but my fear went away as soon as I started to put together the “branch cutter” TM-86H and started using it. It was very easy to assemble (less than 30 minutes) and the user manual was easy to follow. I used it on my 32 hp tractor and I was able to chip logs of 4 to 5 inches in diameter.

    The maintenance and cleaning is very easy since you only have to unscrew one bolt to have access to the fly wheel and knives. Speaking of knives, so far I have used the machine for about 32 hours and the knives were still pretty sharp. Overall, I would highly recommend this wood chipper! Well designed, well made and very tough. Thanks Woodmaxx.

    I can’t speak highly enough of your company or product. From the ease of ordering, to the customer support answering questions, I couldn’t be more satisfied.

    I purchased the WoodMaxx TM-86-H chipper, which is a fantastic machine, to use behind my Simplicity Legacy XL garden tractor. I was concerned that my Simplicity XL wasn’t going to be enough tractor to handle the TM-86-H, but after 150 hours of grinding limbs, my Simplicity hasn’t skipped a beat with this chipper. The chipper blades needed to be rotated just over 100 hours. The largest wood diameter that I chip is 2 inches because I burn as much usable firewood that is available.

    We had a severe ice storm early this year. Lots of trees down, ultimately I cut and split over three cords of wood. Mostly walnut. What made the cleanup possible was the Woodmax chipper (TM-86H). Purchase and assembly was easy. Make sure hydraulic lines are all tight Before you spin it up.

    The product arrived a little banged up, but only cosmetic. The final assemble and installation was simple. This unit has chipped anything I have put into it that fits through the opening. I am impressed. In the past week I have chipped up a bunch of bark from our firewood splitting area, thinning slash, and thinning branches off walnut and fruit trees. It has handled it all very well. One benefit I have already found is I chipped up a bunch of dry apple tree branches and used some of the chips in my smoker. From now on, I will save a few bucks every time I fire up the smoker!

    I was a little reluctant to order a model that had not been out for very long. After using it , I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I was with it’s performance. I’ve been involved in the heavy equipment, construction, and farming trades for most of my life. This chipper is amazing. It out performs towable/self powered models larger than it. It is easy to load, and the angled chute is at a great height. Because of the compact size and weight, I can easily get it to where the work is, instead of dragging limbs to it. My John Deere 790 runs it just fine.You guys have been great to deal with. I spent a few weeks researching chippers and calling you, as well as other companies. Your service was great. My order was delivered as promised. You really came through in every aspect.
