    Which Chipper

    I am thinking about getting a chipper for my 1025. Was looking at the Woodmax TM 86 H then found the Woodland Mills WC 46 or WC 68. Both are basically the same price with free shipping and both seem to be very similar in build.

    Woodmax is built in Buffalo NY but have no idea where Woodland Mills is built. Somewhere in Europe I assume

    Anybody have any opinion on the above chippers?

    The decision to get auto-feed or not all depends on how much you intend to use the chipper in my opinion. If the chipper will be used here and there occasionally, auto-feed is purely a luxury. If you have a lot of chipping to do, auto-feed will surely increase your productivity and reduce your level of effort required to feed the machine. I personally am opting for an auto-feed machine due to the large volume of chipping I will be doing. I am going with WoodMaxx after having done all my research.... Best of luck to you on your selection.

    Termite - the chippers you're looking at are both Chinese. Woodmaxx is based in NY and Woodland Mills is based in Canada.

    The Woodland Mills chippers are (I think) a little newer on the scene than the WoodMaxx chippers. Everybody that I've read about that has the WoodMaxx that you referenced seems to love it! For the money, it's supposed to be a great chipper. Also, WoodMaxx imports the chippers and then upgrades the knives and maybe a few other components on them to USA made components. I don't think that Woodland Mills does that.

    The WoodMaxx 9900 that Homestead Joe references is actually made by WoodMaxx in the USA. That's the chipper that I have. It's more than double the cost of the one that you're looking at. It's an AWESOME chipper and I'm super happy with it. If it will fit through the chute, it will chip it!!

    I do believe that the 9900 might require a little more PTO horsepower than the TM86 though. Also depends on your budget and your preferences which way you want to go.

    Regardless of what you get, make sure you get something with a power feed. I had a "self feed" Bearcat chipper before I bought my WoodMaxx. The difference is amazing and I can chip about 3-4x the amount of material in the same amount of time with the power fed unit. That's important to an old guy like me!!

    I'll second (or is that third or fourth) the auto-feed. I've got a bearcat and I'm almost completely stopped using it and burning the stuff instead because it's so much work to feed.
    The woodmax upgrade is on my list when funds become available.

    Get the one that is the best bang for the buck just as long as it has auto feed. Mine does not have auto feed and every time I use it my arms come away all scratched up and bloody. It is also hard to feed if you're trying to chip vines. Another thing you want to think about is while you're pushing a limb into the chipper and it had small limbs coming off of it, it's harder to push it through. With auto feed you just make it grab and walk away and let the chipper do what it's supposed to do, chip everything you give it.

    I especially like the made in the USA feature, I'm willing to pay more for a better made product and if I help employ my neighbors all the better!

    That is a nice chipper but way overkill for what I need. Even the small one is over kill but getting older is tough so looking to make things easier
