Assembly went well, little bit of a learning curve sawing but very happy with the mill.
I purchased my mill in 2019. I had a bit of a learning curve but after a few cuts I found my zone, and started producing usable lumber. The plans I have made for the materials I’ve made are numerous. One of which requires many beams. They have turned out beautiful. The projects are only limited by the hands of time, but with the mill the lumber is limitless.
Mounted this to a New Holland TC24DA with 18hp rated PTO. Was worried it would not be enough power but it wasn’t a problem. Don’t take too much material per pass and it works just fine and be ready to raise PTO if it digs in too much. Unit is built very well and very solid. No complaints at all and I’m very happy with it. Just check the hardware and set screws on the shaft, they will loosen up after a while but that goes for any equipment.
I bought the chipper last fall 2019 but didn't get a chance to assemble and use it before the snow came. The instructions for assembly are logical and well presented. I gave it the first run today and I'm very pleased with the performance. I think my family and I will enjoy using the WC68 Woodchipper for many years to come
Purchased the WC88 chipper in 2018 to clean up storm damage around the farm. Love this machine. I run it off a 125 horsepower case tractor after making larger bottom mounting pins to fit a cat 2 quicktach. Makes quick work of willow branches that are snapped off in windbreak rows in my fields. I don’t have to load and haul the branches as I can just aim the chute back into the windbreaks and fire the chips back in there. What would have been weeks of work turned into a few days. Chipped 6-7” diameter branches nicely. The chipper came in an awesome steel crate that is so well put together that I decided to repurpose it into a shelter for the ferrel cats that hang around the farm (and keep the rodent population down).
I purchased the WC68 chipper June of 19, it is powered by a 2002 Branson 3520 29HP at PTO I use the indeed speed set to the middle. I never write reviews I feel obligated to do so with this chipper due to how amazing it performs under consistent hard use. So far I have thinned 5 acres of heavy underbrush on my land. Chipping all 6” and under trees. I have a wide range of hardwoods and pine that the WC68 has chipped. The powerful indeed wheel will grab the entire tree and chip it with very little effort. I still haven’t reversed the blades after all the use, and anticipate not needing to for quite some time. The only thing I have found that is a minor design flaw is the bottom hopper steel either should have been made flush where it connects to the infeed or should be set higher. It’s made to be roughly 1/4” lower, with it being low it does catch the butts of trees when you have an arm full. Other than that I highly Recommend this chipper to everyone.
works great very well made
Sorry guys I'm not a owner of the 130MAX. I currently own the HM130. My wife and I love this saw any there isn't many days that we are not running it. In my opinion its the best affordable mill on the market. Fell free to send anyone my way for a excellent review. Here are some pics of my mill.
I’m very happy with my HM 126. It was a learning curve, but if you read the manual at start slowly it doesn’t take to much time and your sawing like a pro. I saw lumber every day.
