WC88

Love the WC88! I use it non stop for 3 hours or more each time I work with it out in the woods. It’s a great product. It is attached to a 1975 John Deere 2630 with 75 PTO HP. The WC88 has no problems with chipping full trees. It’s a monster!

WC88

Drove down to the business in Port Perry to pick this little number up. I was conflicted between the WC68 and the WC 88, but talked with Neil about my specific needs and ended up with the WC88 and couldn’t be happier. I was worried that it would be too much machine for my tractor (I have just under 40HP at the PTO) but I wanted the larger infeed and the infeed offset that’s on the WC88 so I could chip right into my dump trailer. So far, I’m thoroughly impressed. It eats anything and doesn’t bog down the tractor even when chipping larger branches (up 6” tested so far). A my son said, “it does what they claim it’s supposed to do.” High praise from him!

I have ran limps and saplings through this chipper for about 8 hours so far and it works flawlessly. I am very happy with it.

I am thoroughly enjoying my Woodland Mills WC88 Woodchipper! Before getting this one, I did a comprehensive online evaluation of tractor three-point hitch wood chippers, and it seemed like the WC88 was a cut above the next closest competition. I have not been disappointed with either the wood chipper or with the Woodland Mills people. Because my tractor only delivers about 34 HP at the PTO, Woodland Mills sales asked me if I knew about the WC68 and thought maybe it might be a better fit for the size of my tractor, but I decided to stick with the WC88 to make it easier to chip awkwardly shaped branches--anything larger than 3-1/2 inches becomes firewood here, not wood chips. And when I spoke to the support team to get help with shortening my PTO driveline, they were awesome to deal with. Anyway, even with our 34 HP PTO, our tractor did fine powering the WC88. We only had to slow down or reverse the feed if the piece was large hardwood. Performing maintenance on this machine is a dream because everything is so easily accessible. We chipped the trees we removed from nearly 3/4 acre on an overgrown hillside. Most trees were in the 1 inch to 3 inch range, but some were much larger. In the first picture, you can see the huge pile of trees waiting to be chipped. The tractor and chipper are on the far right tucked in the woods. The second picture is the after (with some boulders removed, too). Thanks for reducing the huge pile of trees into useful wood chips for my garden!

I'd like to start by saying that if you're willing to take that much care wrapping and packaging a piece of industrial equipment, I'm coming to Canada for Christmas. The presents there must be absolutely spectacular. The steel framework, pallet and individually wrapped pieces is something to behold. I was a little apprehensive about purchasing a chipper for my project. Not because it wouldn't perform as described. I was pretty sure it would chew up and spit out tree limbs and straight material. No, my concern was would it be able to draw in brush that twists and turns without the need to cut it into small pieces. My intended use for the chipper is to clear 15 acres of Autumn Olive. For those unfamiliar with Autumn Olive the best way I can describe it is, if a grape vine and a Crab Apple tree had offspring. It's a twisty thorny bush that can grow 15 feet tall, 6 inches in diameter and travel horizontally indefinitely. The Set-up: I started by fitting it up to the power plant which in this case is a John Deere 2630 a 70 horse power diesel. I followed the directions for set-up and had a couple of issues. First, I couldn't get the stated clearance between the base plate and cutting knives. The best I could do was .240 so flipped the plate and tried again still no go. I had ordered a spare set of knives and base plate, so I simply replaced the base plate with the spare, problem solved. I'm not sure if I'll ever need to replace the base plate so I'm not worried about it. If however, your experience has been that they occasionally need to be replaced, a replacement would be pretty cool. Second was the grease. The manual says to grease at 40 hours. It says nothing about greasing the new unit or what type of grease to use. I pulled the grease fittings and found no grease in the Zerk fittings so I greased the unit careful not to blow out the seals. Due to the fact these bearing turn so slow any quality grease will do so I chose a polyurea grease. At 40 hours I pulled the unit apart to check all the components. When I initially looked over the unit I was a little concerned about some of the welds and potential for cracking in critical areas. We'd always taught our welders to weld up hand. The welds on this machine seem to be a quick down hand. After 40 hours everything still looks good. The only thing I found was the drive sheave lock nut had come loose. There wasn't a keeper on the lock nut. Other than that the blades were sharp and everything else was tight. I gave everything a shot of grease and went back to work. So, what have I learned after 60 hours of chipping? First this WC88 is a beast and will chew up anything you can drag near it. Second, regardless of your tractors horsepower you want the largest chipper your tractor can lift. More often than not when chipping brush that has a lot of branches that twist you will exceed the chippers inlet capacity long before you tax your tractors horsepower. Third the hydraulic infeed is a must. With the hydraulic feed you can control the feed rate which is very nice when dealing with thorny brush and it makes it easier on the tractor when grinding larger brush. The most important advantage of the hydraulic feed is it will flip and roll the branch as necessary to allow for a much bigger piece to pass than one you could feed by hand. Which in turn makes for much less cutting with the chain saw. This is a quality product that over delivers. It's not often that you make a purchase with high expectations and then have them exceeded. I would recommend this product to anyone. A very satisfied customer, Wes Maddix

Love my WC88! I'm selectively clearing a site for our home build in Vermont, and have untold mounds of limbs, tops, and slash to deal with. I really thought dealing with this mess would take me years, but this chipper is taming this mess way ahead of schedule - it really is a well-designed beast. My tractor PTO is 42 HP, and it has no problem with 6" hardwoods. Will definitely have to consider a WM sawmill to process everything that won't fit into this chipper. Thanks guys!

I reside in the state of Maine. I spent countless hours on line looking at reviews to help make an informed decision on a woodchipper for my 7 heavily wooded acres. Your video demonstration helped make my decision easy. I can honestly say that this product has been one of the best purchases I have ever made. What a time saver! If you are thinking about making the purchase, just stop and do it. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for such a great product ! Ken
