Purchased the HM130 in November of 2019. We had a few issues with the drive and alignment wheels , our blades wouldn't stay on. After several phone calls with the tech department and trouble shouting we decided to replace the wheels and that fixed all of our problems. We have milled several logs now without an issues. The tech support team didn't stop until we found the issue and fixed it. Many thanks to them.
It exceeded all expectations! Easy assembly and cut greats. The only negative is that the assembly instructions could be updated and detailed better. My only regret is that I would’ve got the HM130. Ive cut about 2000 bdft so far a mix of pine, poplar, cherry, maple, white oak and walnut. Cuts everything I’ve sat on the bed so far with ease.
I have been working my new Woodland Mills HM126 for a couple of months now, and I am quite pleased with its performance. I am a complete newbie to milling lumber from logs and am learning at a hundred miles an hour. I purchased this mill with the 9.5 hp motor on it with one set of the extensions. I am very happy that I spent the extra money for the bed extensions and regret that I never spent the extra money for the 14 hp motor. If I was to do it again, I would certainly spend the difference for the larger motor. Please don’t get me wrong, the 9.5 works very well and starts on the first pull every time. It however limits the speed at which you can produce product. My review on the HM 126 is all positive and I love it. I really wished that I had purchased this mill years ago. I am quite certain that by the time this mill is a year old, I will have more that paid for itself in lumber.
Very nice piece of equipment. Being 80 yrs old I didn’t need anyone to get it going. Easy to assemble, install and operate. In my first try when coupled to a 31hp 36yr old John Deere I produced two cubic yards of chips which I can use for various things. My only hope is that it lasts a long time. Of course, that only time will tell.
We love the chipper. Works very well even with the lower end of the horsepower tractor.
I have used it on a dozen or so stumps so far. Couple of them were monsters. I'm happy with the purchase. Delivery was prompt and the shipping crate was excellent. I hook it to a L3400 HST. It's a good match on that tractor. I use a quick hitch and that gives extra room to get the blade behind bigger stumps. Couple stump learning curve i'd say. No big deal. While I still give it 5 stars, the way you start on a stump buries the rest of the stump in a berm of chips and earth so its hard to see for your next pass. Its a non issue for less than 12" or so. Big ones I found myself making a few passes then getting off the tractor and raking/blowing off the stump to get a good look for the next set of passes. Sometimes I just would let it eat through the berm, you can tell quick if your taking too big of a bite or too little. With HST tractor and a battery blower, probably can't beat this grinder for the money.
Love it! Having so much fun sawing logs into useful lumber to build a fence and deck.
The grinder has worked very well , I have done several large hardwood stumps with no problems, the unit is solid . im running it on a 2018 John Deere 2032R , requires some general upkeep , but very serviceable . I also added a rear camera to the tractor to help with watching progress of the grinder , saves a stiff neck the next day on long grinds . I can recommend this grinder to anyone with a need to do their own stump grinding . I have also done some paying jobs with it with great results ,root field grind is easy with this ,strong consistent grind path. I did a grind on a not less that 47 inch pine stump that had been there long enough to turn for ' fat lighter" very hard stuff, it broke it up very good , cant say it cut it , its was more of a shattering affect , none the less the stump is gone , took it below grade about 6 inches
We live on a small 640 acre ranch in East Texas and brush clearing, especially on fence lines, is always part of maintenance. Before purchasing our Woodland Mills chipper/shredder, we left piles behind to "burn later". Usually those piles stayed for months or years. Now, the piles are gone and beautiful mulch is left to decompose in the soil. This machine is rugged, safe and very well made. I had no idea how much we would use it and enjoy the results. Thank you for putting the best North American materials and engineering into your superior product. Sincerely and gratefully, David from Texas
Using on my John Deere 4510. Works better than advertised. The grinder has paid for itself twice over.
