I absolutely love this grinder. I only wish I had purchased it years ago instead of renting the portable stump grinders. It's a very well built product that should last for years. I even liked the metal shipping crate it came in. I put casters on the bottom of it and now I can easily roll it around for easy storage.
The Woodlander XL trailer went together flawlessly. I have a HM126 now and it’s a great mill. It’s handled everything so far that I needed. Now with quick level adjustments and mobility it seems to be the machine to have.
I love my HM122! I bought it in the spring and just now got around to setting it up. I got the smallest one because I don't have a means of easily transporting bigger logs. I just sawed some dead Elm about 16" diameter and a few Red Oak logs around 14" diameter. The Red Oak had been down a few years, the bark is coming off but the wood looks spectacular. My little 7hp motor cut the logs with ease, you just have to take your time. Right now it is set up on my blacktop driveway. At some point I may move it into the woods. I am happy! Thank you for a very well-engineered product. Tom Manson - Rockford IL
I have a small tree farm and purchase this unit to remove stumps before planting. I works beautifully. I have a John Deere 3046 R tractor and it removes any stump without any trouble regardless of size or wood species. If I had to remove 1000's of stumps I would look elsewhere. So far I have removed 75 stumps each taking about 2-6 min per stump. Remember to adjust the slip clutch as described in the owners manual.
I purchased the WC68 chipper in July 2018. After a year's use. I have to say I'm pretty impressed. The chipper handles good sized pine, oak, maple, and ash branches and barely breaks a sweat turning them into chips. Build quality is excellent, and the unit seems pretty rugged. The steel pallet and cage that the unit arrived in was "over the top". I have found that when I chip sappy pine branches with long needles, the discharge chute sometimes clogs. I don't store the owners manual in the plastic tube on the unit, but I do keep a ratchet with a 24 mm socket and an aluminum trowel in there to speed up unclogging of the chute and the housing. I also keep a 16 mm combination wrench in there for adjusting the power feed opening, and two 13 mm wrenches for the shear bolt (haven't needed them yet!). My previous chipper had a manual feed, and it was exhausting to keep it fed. Love the power feed on this unit. It's like being on vacation. Twisty, branched tree limbs get drawn and crushed in with little effort from the operator. I sometimes chip gnarly mountain laurel, and the power feed pulls this in fine too. A couple nits/suggestions: The machined slot for adjusting the deflector on the top of the discharge chute should be a little longer toward the top to allow for a straight discharge for those of us who blow chips right into the woods. I spent a little time with a drill and a grinder to extend the slot, but it'd be nice if it came from the factory that way. The clevis pin for the safety bar actuator rod (which gets removed/installed frequently) is kind of a pain. I changed mine to a pin with holes on both ends with two spring clips, so that no matter which side of the chipper I approach the pin from, I have a clear view of the clip. Way easier. It'd be nice to have a way to add some pressure treated 2x4 feet to the bottom of the unit. Unfortunately, my unit lives outside year round, and keeping the legs off the ground would be desirable.. Some drill holes in the base and some angle iron clips would do the trick. But other than that, I really like the unit.
I purchased my saw mill a couple of month ago. I started out with a knotty pine log and was very happy with the nice looking boards I was able to produce. I cut a cherry log today which turned out great and I am going to cut an oak log next. I am very happy with the results I am getting with my saw mill and I am glad I purchased it.
I apologize for taking so long to respond but I have been very busy. I have been pouring a concrete slab for the mill and building a millhouse but did manage to set it up to give it a try and I am VERY IMPRESSED with the quality of this product! The instructions are very well written and easy to follow which made the setup a breeze. I will be sending a video at some point and can not thank you enough for the quality of this mill.
