The WoodMaxx DC-650 is equipped with an adjustable bed knife to ensure the proper knife gap is achieved. This feature allows the user to adjust the distance between the flywheel knife and the bed knife so that the required distance is maintained after knife sharpening. Proper gap is important so that even the small material is chipped as it passes through the chipper. Click here to learn how long your chipper knives will last.
The WoodMaxx DC-650 digital hour meter ensures proper maintenance intervals.
The main shaft bearings on the DC-650 wood chipper passes through the flywheel housing and is supported by two industrial flange bearings. This feature, combined with the heavy duty shaft, allows the flywheel to run extremely true, while adding a great deal of strength.
All wood chippers will require some routine maintenance like adjusting the gap between the bed knife and the flywheel knives as they wear. This gap is essential to proper operation of the wood chipper. The infeed hopper on the WoodMaxx DC-650 swings open to expose the bed knife, allowing the user to access the knife to make adjustments. Simply remove 2 bolts and the hopper will swing open like a door. This feature is exclusive to WoodMaxx. Other chippers require the user to crawl into the infeed hopper to change the bed knife or adjust the gap between the bed knife and flywheel knives.
The WoodMaxx DC-650 wood chippers are equipped with two heavy-duty Gates brand cogged V-belts. These v-belts are known for their superior performance and reputability. They are easy to find at any auto parts store; SAE standard size AX34.
Safety is paramount on WoodMaxx wood chippers. Located at the top of the infeed bin, the DC-650 utilizes an electrical safety switch to shut the engine down. Simply push down the safety bar and the engine will come to a halt in seconds.
This is high impact, UV stable, fade-resistant polyester powder coating that is baked on at 450 degrees. Powder coating finish is thicker and more durable than ordinary paint.

This woodchipper works great! This is one of the best investments I have made. Easy to operate and perfect for getting rid of brush and branches. I liked this woodchipper so much from Woodmaxx I just ordered a snowblower from you guys as well!
My experience with Woodmaxx has been really good. Ordered my WM-8M on a Monday and received it on Friday. Packaging for shipment was great with no damage… just be ready to transport the package from curbside to wherever you want it. Assembly was pretty straightforward and did not take very long. Having used the chipper now for several hours, all I can say is, “Wow!” This things is amazing and works very well. I am using it with my Kubota L2501, which seems to have everything it needs. All in all, very satisfied with my purchase.
I bought an 8600 backhoe and am using it on a TC-45 New Holland tractor. Recently the main pressure hose started leaking. The hose was out of stock, but Ron Szpylman of Woodmaxx parts and service notified me when it came back in. He was easy to contact personally and I ordered one. I made sure it would fit my system and I mentioned to him that the hose was leaking around the crimp, not the joint. He made the suggestion that if that were true it would be covered under warranty. I thought this was great personal service, something difficult to find these days. Thank you Woodmaxx!
I have been thoroughly enjoying my WoodMaxx DC-1260. It makes quick work of a big pile of brush and rarely struggles to keep up with the brush I’ve been processing. It’s powerful engine and in-line cutter design means practically no down time whereas the old chipper I powered off the PTO of my tractor clogged all the time and I spent more time cleaning out the cutting blades than actually making wood chips!! Awesome product!
The feed system on the MX-8500G works great: elegant in it’s simplicity. A powered feed would only be one more thing to pay for, to maintain, and to repair. Since I have the I-Match system on my John Deere 3720, the PTO shaft fit perfectly without alteration.
