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. 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.

I needed a new chipper and was look at the chain stores (lowes, homedepot), and a lot of the reviews said don’t buy junk, get a Woodmaxx. I read up on Woodmaxx and the reviews were high on quality as well as the all important customer service. I bought the DC-650 and so glad I did. It was delivered easy and quick, it was easy to assemble. This thing cuts through every type of wood I have put in it so far and way quicker and easier then my old Craftsman.
Awesome Chipper. After assembly it started with one easy pull. This chipper does a Great job. Wish I had bought it years ago. If you are on the fence about buying this machine, go for it. you will not be disappointed.
The product seems well built, and that is my five star rating. However, the shipping was two days late, and after waiting two days in vain without hearing an update, I called them and they didn’t seem to know why the product was still sitting on their dock, 20 minutes from my house. They couldn’t make up their mind when the product would actually arrive at my home.
Great product, but shipping customer service was terrible.
Should have purchased one of these years ago. Definitely recommend the lift gate delivery service.
Came right to the house, and had it assembled and ready to go within a couple of hours. Plenty of power, and the self feeding feature works really well. Went through a huge pile of limbs and branches that had piled up over several months all in one afternoon. Next time it will be easier to chip when the limbs are fresh cut.
Have over 75 Georgia pine trees and 12 large overgrown Azalea bushes 1 Chestnut trees and a pear tree which I pruned this year. Also took care of all the branches with the recent storms. Glad I had it. The company communicates well and in a timely fashion.
One of the best property maintenance machines I purchased last year.
