Greece, Norway, Iceland, Ireland and of course Canada! WoodMaxx Power Equipment Ltd. was started in the spring of 2009 by Kurt Schie, a military veteran of 14 years, husband, and proud father of five children. The idea was conceived when Kurt was looking for a compact yet strong PTO chipper that could hold up to the rigors of clearing a 15 acre parcel he owned. Unsatisfied with any of the machines available on the market, he set out to develop his own.

Kurt comes from a family of fabricators and machinists, and together they knew that they were up to the task of building a superior PTO wood chipper that would include features found nowhere else. Many people thought Kurt was crazy, but he stuck with the idea, and the WoodMaxx chipper soon became a big hit. Having over 20 years of experience owning a real-estate development company, he had plenty of business experience to launch the new chipper to market.

With the understanding that the needs of the customer are always first and foremost, WoodMaxx has taken the success of the PTO chippers and has integrated the same principle of quality build and exclusive features into their new line of products. WoodMaxx now offers: PTO snow blowers, skid steer mounted snow blowers, PTO backhoes, PTO flail mowers, PTO tillers, and WoodMaxx is actively working to innovate new and exciting products for the PTO market. WoodMaxx has a solid foundation built on hard work and integrity that will stand the test of time.

WoodMaxx is a forward thinking company. We have an 18 acre parcel in upstate New York (Akron, to be precise, located between Buffalo and Rochester) that we use as a proving ground where we: cut, chip, grind, dig, scratch, snow blow, and thoroughly test each product before we offer it to the public. We are always looking for the next innovation to incorporate into our machines. WoodMaxx employs 10,000 square feet of warehouse space and a full time staff. We stock what you need and, will always pick up the phone. We look forward serving you for many years to come.

Update 2013, this fall (2013) we will be unveiling our new TM-86H PTO wood chipper that is specifically designed to meet the needs of smaller tractor owners. This project has taken us 2-1/2 years of design, development, and testing, but the end product is amazing. We are excited to offer it to the public soon. Thanks to everyone who trusted us and purchased from us up to this point. WoodMaxx is now the # 1 provider of PTO wood chippers in North America. You have helped us grow this business to a point where we now have plans to build a new 30,000 square foot facility on our current parcel. WoodMaxx is a profit share business, which allows our employees a stake in the business. This help to ensure that everyone here has skin in the game, and that every detail is attended to. We now have departments that include full time positions in; sales, engineering, marketing, parts and service, and several experienced shop technicians.

Coming soon. We are working on a new 'monster chipper.' The prototype will be done soon, and we will beta test it this fall. Our goal is to launch the new design in the spring of 2015.
