    Woodmaxx MX-8800 wood chipper

    Last week Monday my Chipper finally showed up.

    During assembly I had one small issue. The 3 point pins, which I'm sure Woodmaxx does not make themselves, are poor quality. One of the lock nuts broke into 2 pieces and the nuts are undersized.
    The nuts are supposed to be 1 5/16 but a 1 1/4 box end worked on one of the nuts and a open end fit snuggly on the other one. So the nuts were very sloppy when using the proper sized wrench.

    A minor thing I know.

    After I got it running I cleaned up a bunch of brush piles I had laying around.
    The tops are mostly popple (aspen) with some hickory, ironwood and maple mixed in. All this stuff was down at least a year before I chipped it up this week.
    So it was dry stuff, not green. Altho most of the popple was in worse shape than green stuff.

    I ran the chipper for 9 hours and managed to make about 16 yards of chips which I spread on my trails in the woods to make it easier to drive on them.

    I chipped all the stuff into a trailer that I rigged up.

    So pictures.

    I would note that while chipping I have found that I'll need to "prep" the tops better than just cutting them into small enough pieces so that I can toss them on piles for later chipping.

    It was not hard to defeat the self feeding with crotches and branches that would catch on the edge of the chute.

    Congratulations on the chipper.

    9 hours, that is some sweat equity.
