Woodsman 20X Chippers

Model 20X

The Woodsman Model 20Xtreme boasts the largest chipping drum available in a handfed chipper today. This workhorse is at home on the street doing residential removals as well as in the middle of a forty acre land clearing. This versatile machine can be configured to your application with options like our knuckle-boom loader, folding infeed conveyor, and wireless remote controls.

ImageThe 20Xtreme is the ideal choice for contractors that need to dispose of high volumes of material, quickly and efficiently. This model can be configured to meet your specific needs by equipping it with a loader, winch, conveyor bed, or as a hand-fed capable unit.

In addition, it can be outfitted with a wireless remote control that allows you to operate it from a distance or from an auxiliary piece of equipment. Compact and easy to maneuver, the 20Xtreme is a must for serious contractors. Available with engines from 200-320 horsepower.


Rear Pivoting Feed System
  • The extraordinary design of this feed system uses mechanical leverage to unlimited down pressure on the feed roller. The down pressure transfers more energy, or torque, to the feed wheel which in turn creates less slippage of the teeth on the material for a more positive feed. Our rear pivoting feed system is designed so efficient that there is no need for troublesome springs or a bottom feed roller on many other chippers.

    Woodsman utilizes a single feed wheel to efficiently and effectively feed all types of material. With our rearward pivoting feed wheel design, the need for down pressure springs is eliminated. As wood is fed into the machine, mechanical leverage is created. The pivot point of the feed assembly in conjunction with the rotation of the feed wheel causes a downward force proportional to the resistance from the material being fed.
Hydraulic System
  • Woodsman also uses a hydraulic system which includes O-ring face seal hoses. This ensures a clean, dry hydraulic system.
Feed Wheel Assist Cylinder
  • A great feature which is standard on all Woodsman chippers is the feed wheel assist cylinder. This hydraulic lift cylinder is designed to use down pressure to break crotches and limbs and it has lifting power to assist operators when feeding large diameter short pieces of wood. With the feed wheel lift bar position on both sides of the infeed, it is also very user friendly.

Drop Door
  • Our drop door on the discharge chute is for easy inspection. The easy access chipper anvil can be adjusted by one person without having to enter the chipper feed area, and the hydraulic feed wheel lift cylinder can be operated from either side of the machine.
Dual Valve Auto Feed
  • A dual valve auto feed not only stops the feed, but also simultaneously locks the feed roll for a quick response.
Main Frame
  • Woodsman chippers are solidly mounted on tubular steel frames for extra strength. The frame rails extend underneath the feed tables, giving additional support in the area of the chipper where the majority of work takes place. This feature virtually eliminates the incidence of cracked welds in the feed area.
Battery Compartment
  • Our battery is out in the open for convenient easy access. This makes any necessary maintenance a breeze.
O-Ring Face Seal Hoses
  • Woodsman also uses a hydraulic system which includes O-ring face seal hoses. This ensures a clean, dry hydraulic system.
Double Ended Pigtail
  • We use a double ended pigtail that makes it convenient if the wire lead is damaged. A simple plug and replacement is all that is needed instead of a complete rewiring.
Double Spherical Roller Bearing
  • The one feature that sets us apart from the competition is our rear pivoting feed system. Woodman uses a large double spherical roller bearing that attaches to the shaft by use of a taper locking adapter sleeve. This ensures a good fit, 360 degrees around the shaft versus the set screw style that locks tight against the shaft in only two places.
