Product Description

Woodland Mills is pleased to offer our newly designed and exclusive 8” (20cm) PTO drive wood chipper with auto hydraulic feed. The WC88 was designed to offer acreage owners an economical and well engineered wood chipper. This is a serious wood chipper, with a huge 8” (20cm) chipping capacity. It was built to be the best valued wood chipper in its class. From the powder coated structure, to its industrial pillow block / flange mount bearings and 4 “V” belt drive system, this wood chipper will exceed your expectations.



Capacity

The WC88 operates on tractors with 30-100 HP. It utilizes a large 23” x 27” (59 cm x 69 cm) infeed hopper opening that tapers down to an 8” x 8” (20 cm x 20 cm) opening where the 8.25” (21cm) diameter hydraulically driven infeed roller grabs the branches and feeds them through the chipper. Branches as small as ¼” (6mm) diameter and as large as 8” (20cm) diameter can be fed through the WC88. To chip full 8” (20cm) diameter logs, tractors with over 60 HP are required.



Hydraulic Infeed System

Branches are pulled into the WC88 via the large 8.25” (21cm) diameter infeed roller. The roller is hydraulically driven via the chippers self contained hydraulic system. The roller is adjustable in direction and speed making it easy to feed branches of all shapes and sizes. The hydraulic pump is direct drive from the lower shaft, meaning there is no need to worry about wearing or loose drive belts. The roller down pressure may be adjusted via the two large springs ensuring it grabs branches and easily pulls them in, eliminating the need for manual feeding.



Flywheel

The dynamically balanced 24” (61cm) diameter, 1” (25mm) thick, and 120 lb / 54 kg solid steel flywheel runs on a 2” (50mm) diameter shaft and is supported by 2 industrial and greaseable flanged bearings. It features four CNC machined pockets to hold the reversible blades. The flywheel features four large fan blade paddles that spin at over 1,100 RPM ensuring maximum airflow.



Drive Belt System

The drive belt system is encased by a ¼” (6mm) thick steel guard which can quickly be rotated forward to access the drive system. Simply pull the pin at the top and the guard folds forward, providing quick and complete access to the entire drive system. The PTO shaft (included with chipper) connects from your tractor to the chippers lower 2” (50mm) shaft. Four heavy duty cogged BX series drive belts run up to the flywheel main shaft. These belts are standard off the shelf replacement parts. They are automatically kept in proper tension via the self tensioning system. This system dramatically increases belt life, reduces belt slippage and saves the user from manually adjusting for belt tension. Changing belts are also made easy as the tensioning system can easily be pulled back out of the way allowing the belts to be changed out quickly.



Chipper Blades

The WC88 chipper utilizes four high quality hardened steel reversible chipper blades. These blades are 90 degrees apart and are offset from one another. They can be flipped to take advantage of having two cutting edges on one blade. Each blade is held onto the flywheel with two countersunk M10 bolts and locking nuts. Changing blades can be made very quickly thanks to the clamshell flywheel housing design. Simply undo one bolt and the upper flywheel housing rotates open, providing full access to the flywheel and chipper blades.



Folding Infeed Chute

The infeed chute on the WC88 wood chipper has a large 23” x 27” (59 cm x 69 cm) opening, making it easy to feed branches with multiple limbs effortlessly. The infeed chute can also be folded up which decreases the footprint of the chipper during storage or transport.



Infeed Opening

The opening in the flywheel housing is a large 8” x 8” (20cm x 20cm) square making it quite easy to accept branches with several limbs. This reduces the need to trim your branches down before feeding them into the chipper.



Adjustable Chipper Base

The WC88 chipper has a heavy duty chipper base made of 1/2″ (12mm) thick laser cut steel plates. This base can be adjusted so that the PTO shaft sits at 15-5/8″ to 21-5/8″ (40 cm to 55 cm) off the ground to suit various tractor sizes. Simply hook the chipper up to your tractor and lift it up so it is suspended in the air. The four bolts that hold the base to the chipper housing can be removed and the base can be raised or lowered to suit your tractor configuration.



Discharge Chute

The discharge chute was designed to rotate 360 degrees by simply loosening the eye bolt and spinning it by hand to the desired angle. This makes it possible to direct the wood chips in any direction regardless of the location of the chipper. The end of the chute stands at 73” (1.9m) off of the ground, making it quite easy to direct the wood chips into the back of a truck or trailer if desired. Located at the end of the discharge chute is a rotating deflector, which allows further control of the location of the wood chips. Simply point it straight for maximum distance or angled down to deflect the chips directly down to the ground or into a trailer.



PTO Shaft

Included with the WC88 chipper is the PTO shaft complete with a shear pin.



Assembly

The WC88 chipper will arrive in a steel crate and can be up and running in as little as one hour. The infeed chute and discharge chute have been removed during shipping to eliminate the possibility of damage. The chipper will require 5 gallons (20L) of ISO 32 hydraulic oil in the tank which is not included, but can be purchased at most farm or hardware stores. Lastly, attach the PTO shaft that comes included and trim it to length for your tractor as per the manual if required.



Weight

The WC88 was designed for property owners, but built like a commercial wood chipper. It weighs in at 1,050 lbs (476kgs).



Warranty

The WC88 is covered by a full 3 year warranty against any manufacturing defects. If a part breaks, we simply ship you a new one from our fully stocked warehouse. Warranty parts can be shipped out same day or next day. Wearing parts such as belts, bearings and blades are not covered under our warranty.

  1. Hi Janice, Started using my woodchipper, WC88 this past week and really appreciate how well the unit operates. At the beginning of the month we had a thunderstorms with severe windshear pockets that knocked down a good amount of trees.  I live in the woods and one the size of three football fields took all the trees and snapped them at 20 foot or layed them on the ground.  Needless to say your unit will get a big time workout this summer.  I like how well its built and have confidence it will do the job I need. Thanks Mike

  2. Here are some pictures of the chipper. It works very well and we are very pleased with it. Thanks. Regards, Gary

  3. A GREAT Chipper. I am soooooo glad I did NOT buy the chipper my neighbor sold for more than my new and delivered Woodland Mills chipper. And this chipper is much nicer and better built than that orange second owner one. I tell him every time I see him how glad I am that I did not buy his. And how well built this Woodland Mills one is.

  4. Hello Lori, Here's a photo of our chipper going flat out on our Cedar and Hemlock branches.
    We love it and it works beautifully! Thanks, Rhonda and Russel

  5. This is a picture after about 20 hours on the chipper. It is awesome and of excellent quality and durability. I looked for a long time for a great strong, easy to use chipper that is safe and long lasting. It works great.

  6. Hi Lori. Love the chipper, wish everything was made this well. 
    I started clearing a hillside to get our view back but because of the almost daily rain that project is on hold. 
    Very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone. Greg

  8. Hey Melissa!..just wanted to say thanks again and show you my chipping setup. My chipper has been great.  I have about 30 hours on it and have it mounted on a 90hp 5520 John Deere tractor. I run the tractor in econo pto (1700 rpm versus 2400) and have no problem chipping full 7 inch wood.  This chipper has definitely exceeded my expectations and has made short work of our fence row clean up project this year.  Plus we've been selling woodchips to neighbours and local landscapers and have almost enough saved up to buy one of your awesome looking sawmills!...can't wait!
    Sincerely
