Features & Benefits

Self-adjusting hydraulic dry clutch

Self-adjusting, push-button, hydraulic dry clutch provides consistent engagement — helping to prolong clutch life, lower maintenance costs and reduce operator error.

Easy knife change-out

Knife setup is fast and easy. Knife position is set with two small bolts — no babbiting needed. Bite size is adjustable in 1/8 in (.3 cm) increments from 1/8 in (3 mm) up to 5/8 in (16 mm) via shims. Makes knife change-out on the jobsite easy and helps reduce cost of operation.

Variable chip sizes

Microchip drum produces a variety of sizes between 1/8 in (3 mm) to 5/8 in (16 mm) chips.

Replaceable wear parts

High-wear material flow areas of the machine — such as the drum, discharge chute, cutter housing and infeed conveyor floor — are designed with replaceable bolt-in wear parts to extend machine life.

SmartCrush and variable-speed, dual-infeed conveyor chains

With SmartCrush technology that automatically increases down pressure when difficult material enters the cutting drum, and variable-speed dual-infeed conveyor chains, operators can concentrate on loading the machine — not pushing the material through.

Compact design

The WC2500XL has a compact design to aid in maneuvering in the woods, on tight jobsites and down narrow roads, but packs 600 hp (448 kW) of power to meet your production demands.
