Woodland Mills WC-88 WOOD CHIPPER REVIEW Background We run a 137 yr old farm in north central Minnesota that has about 240 acres of woodlot. This was clear cut back in the 1800s and then farmed and allowed to go back to "woods". Subsequent "select" logging only encouraged more invasive species to take root. Part of our Woodland Stewardship Plan is to remove those small invasives and allow the mast trees to re-propagate. This year (2019) also involved Mid Contract Management on 27 acres of 20 year old white and red pine. Trimming and under thinning. Needless to say we are accumulating lots of debris. Enter WOODLAND MILLS WC-88 Ordering Couldn't be easier. Web site explained all, good videos and info for deciding right size. Very nice phone person. boom...confirmation...next day delivery tracking. Delivery 5 days later...(weekend included) the truck guy was a little confused....but got it off the back about on time. Is heavy! Packing Wow, talk about starting off right ... a rigid metal pallet with copious bubble wrap, tape, strapping and cardboard kept everything in good shape. No scrapes or dings. Assembly High quality ...some kind of "metric" fasteners...everything well organized , a little tricky solo with the chute and safety bar assembly. If you watch the assembly video it all makes sense....and there is a set of relatively clear and easy to follow paper instructions too...huh. Took about as long to get it all unpacked as it did for assembly. Only basic tools if you don't need to trim the shaft. Filled with 4.8 (not 5...) gallons of hi quality hydraulic oil and got it hooked up on the quicktach to my John Deere 50 hp Tractor. Spooled right up. Plenty of power with the Yanmar running @ 1250. Learning curve 30 hr test Ran it on some small stuff and then after i got the feel, backed the rate down a bit. I have a bunch of ironwood(horn-beam) that have twisty, stringy tops and hard as rock trunks. The WC-88 will take one of those 6" at the base x 20 footers and chew it right up. She bangs a bit digesting but shreds it nicely. I did plug the discharge chute a couple times when feeding it large wet spruce boughs, but after the first time ( relatively easy to clean out, BRING THE WRENCH and a stick...sticky stuff) you can tell and avoided major pluggage'. Don't Panic...It has reverse feed too...duh. Grinds right thru old white pine branches....and...ash. elm, box elder, birch, popal and red oak so far. Conclusion Easy to use and well built. It is what they say it is. IT IS a pleasure to get such a nice piece of equipment and I hope to use it for years to come. Thanks for a quality product. whk

Decided we were hiring a chipper often enough to justify buying one. Researched thoroughly and went for this one. No regrets. Arrived quickly, easy to assemble and works as advertised. Very pleased with our decision.

Woodland Mills were very helpful arranging for me to contact and visit an owner to view his machine. (I had been very disappointed in the past buying a hedgecutter online without viewing.) I was very impressed with what I saw and appreciated a demo. This prompted me to buy a WC88. It is a very well built machine and I am very happy with it.

We had very good advice on the chipper on a fair in the Black Forest. It convinced us and we bought it very soon after. Since that we only had very best experiences with it and it's fun to work with it. Clear recommendation!

There is an other user of WC88 Woodchipper in my city and he is a maschine mechanic - and every question i had, he told me. Last week an other farmer came to me to see the WC88 Woodchipper, because its a real good machine

Impressed with quality and performance. Nothing can stop it as long as it enters in the feeder. Works great on my JD3720.

This machine is absolutely amazing. All of the reviews are true and correct. I put a lot of thought and research into this wanted but skeptical online purchase. Delivery was in 7 days which is totally acceptable for my location in Maine. I have not been disappointed in any way in its performance. My tractor is at the low end of the power rating at 35 but it will take anything I can cram into the feed chute. I have actually tried to jam it up and it stalled the tractor on a large twisted maple. I was running the in feed fast at 3-4 and could not slow it down quick enough.

Wow! I am so impressed with the quality and performance of this chipper! The hydraulic feeder is so nice. Just get the log or branch started and then walk away to get the next piece. It is surprisingly quiet for such a beast and my 39 horse JD 4400 tractor handles it fine. I can easily direct the chips in any direction. That’s a great feature. Being able to swing the feeder chute up for storage or repositioning on the site is very handy. There are much lower quality options from other manufacturers that are only a few hundred dollars less but they just make this brute seem well worth the price! Delivered to my garage on time in perfect condition. I would definitely buy from Woodland Mills all over again.
