THE FH-WCRF8 HYDRAULIC AUTO FEED CHIPPER…
The Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 is a robust compact wood chipper with a self contained hydraulic auto-feed system that features an impressive 8” x 8” capacity. This chipper weighs in at 595 lbs., with a 117 lbs. solid steel flywheel. Although this machine can handle tractors of 50 plus HP, it was specifically designed for use on smaller sub compact with as little as 15 HP at the PTO. The Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 wood chipper is compact, yet built to withstand constant use. With our optional leg kit it is perfect or your compact tractors as well.
The aggressive hydraulically powered in-feed roller grabs and pulls material into the chipper head using a powerful hydraulic motor. The motor is powered by the chippers’ self-contained hydraulic pump and tank. High quality standard (CR12 steel)
STRENGTH IN DESIGN
Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chippers are the perfect combination of size, weight, and features. Compact enough to move around, yet strong enough to get the tough jobs done. WCRF8 chippers are loaded with features typically found on much larger commercial machines that are much more expensive. The strength of our machines starts with using heavy formed Q-235 (American standard A-36) structural steel plate, the strongest plate steel available. Each piece is precisely laser cut and meticulously welded. The Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chipper structural design includes a direct drive 40mm diameter main shaft that passes straight through the flywheel housing and is supported by 2 flange bearings. This feature allows the flywheel to run true and adds a great deal of strength.Assembly video:
TRUE 8”x 8” IN-FEED OPENING
Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chipper offers a large 8” x 8” in-feed to easily accept those crooked branches. Although the opening is this size, the material you can chip is dictated by the HP of your tractor. With a 15hp tractor (at the PTO) you can expect to easily chip 2.5-3” material.
SELF CONTAINED HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
The Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chipper comes complete with a hydraulic pump and a 2.5 gallon reservoir tank to power the in-feed motor. Please note, you will need at least 15 horsepower at the PTO to operate this machine. The hoses on the WCRF8 are also covered in a nylon protective sheath to protect from damage.
24” DIAMETER 117 LB. COMPUTER BALANCED FLYWHEEL
The Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chippers use a 24” diameter 117lb. solid steel 18mm thick flywheel to deliver the energy required to easily chip all types of material. The flywheel is computer controlled dynamically balanced to ensure smooth running. Through thorough our 20 years of design and selling pto powered chippers Betstco Farmer-Helper knows how to size a rotor for a sub compact tractor. Larger flywheels require more horsepower to turn, which limited the tractors that can use the chipper.
HARDENED STEEL COMMERCIAL STYLE IN-FEED ROLLER
Getting the material to pull into the chippers quickly and effectively is the trick. Designing and selling 3 point chippers since 1995, we know how to match roller size an aggressiveness to the rotor speed and blades. Our in-feed roller easily climbs up and grabs the branches to bite in and efficiently pull the material into the flywheel. Regardless of material size.
Betstco Farmer-Helper power feed chippers utilize an infeed roller with high carbon steel chisel teeth. This type of in-feed roller is found on larger, much more expensive machines. We have also spaced the teeth out the prevent material like leaves and bark from getting impacted between the teeth. This allows the roller to self-clean and also allows the down pressure to focus on fewer teeth which increases the bite. This roller, along with the high tension spring aggressively bites into any type of wood. The advantage of this type of roller is that is aggressively grabs any size limb up to 6” with or without leaves. Small, vine type material as well as long or short needle pine is no problem for the Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chipper. Vines, leaves, and small branches won’t wrap around the roller as they would on other chippers. The advanced design of our in-feed roller is a feature that should not be overlooked when shopping for a wood chipper.
The Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 is a high torque direct drive chipper, no drive belts to adjust or replace. The chipper flywheel speed is 540 rpm, this is why the chipper uses 4 knives on the flywheel for 36 bites per second.
DUAL EDGE REVERSIBLE FLYWHEEL KNIVES
Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chippers all come standard with high carbon reversible dual edge flywheel knives. This means you get twice the work out of one set of knives! These knives are bolted into a milled pocket in the flywheel,WCRF8 chipper was designed to actually help *Prices and Specifications subject to change without notice 14 to hold the knives on. This eliminates knife and bolt breakage that can be found on other dual edge knife systems.
ADJUSTABLE BED [ ANVIL ] KNIFE
Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chippers are equipped with an adjustable bed knife to ensure that the proper knife gap is achieved. This feature allows the user to adjust the distance between the flywheel knife and the bed knife. Proper gap is important so that even the smallest material is chipped as it passes through the chipper.
EASY SWIVEL DISCHARGE CHUTE
360 degrees of rotation and 2 finger operation. We have incorporated a convenient handle that effortlessly allows you to swivel the discharge chute so that you can direct the chips into the back of a truck or trailer without having to move the entire machine. Simply push down on the handle and swing the chute. When you release the handle a spring loaded pin drops down to lock the chute into position. No tools required.
HIGH FLOW FLYWHEEL CHAMBER VENTILATION
Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chippers incorporate a series of precisely located ventilation holes in the flywheel chamber. This feature creates a strong vacuum that draws air into the flywheel chamber and in combination with the fan paddle blades on the back of the flywheel forcefully ejects the chips out of the chamber. This keeps the discharge chute clear, and reduces the chances of a jam.
QUICK HITCH READY
Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chippers are now category 1 quick hitch compatible. Betstco Farmer-Helper is the only PTO chipper that works with quick hitch Save time by never leaving the seat of your tractor to link up with the WCRF8 chipper. Attaching the chipper to your quick hitch takes only seconds.No quick hitch? No problem. The chipper will easily attach to a standard Cat-I 3pt hitch.
HEAVY DUTY CAST STEEL BEARING HOUSINGS
Two heavy duty cast steel flange bearings support the 40mm main shaft, which passes through the flywheel housing, and is supported by a flange bearing on either side. These heavy duty, shock resistant cast steel bearings are much more durable than cast iron
VARIABLE SPEED HYDRAULIC IN-FEED MOTOR
The Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 uses a USA White brand hydraulic motor. The speed of this motor can be controlled to variable speeds from (0-75ft. /min) with the included pressure compensation flow control valve that allows for very precise in-feed speed adjustment. The aggressive hydraulic powered in-feed roller and the design of the sloped in-feed bin itself work together to pull material into the chipper head. This feature allows the user to slow the in-feed speed down to accept large material.
ADJUSTABLE FEED ROLLER TENSION SPRINGS
The Betstco Farmer-Helper WCRF8 chipper utilizes a high tension spring in conjunction with a unique adjustment mechanism that offers a full range of variable down pressure, since all branches are different – some soft and some hard. This feature allows the user to increase to decrease the upper roller down pressure to suit the situation. Crank up the tension to achieve up to 125lbs. of down pressure. This allows the teeth on the roller to dig into the branches and ensure a smooth entry into the chipper head.
EASY FLYWHEEL ACCESS
The flywheel housing of the WCRF8 opens up like a clam shell. This makes maintenance like changing flywheel knives a breeze.
2 YEAR WARRANTY

WCRF8…595lbs Light enough for small sub compact tractor to lift, yet extremely strong construction.
SAFETY AUTO FEED STOP BAR
Safety is paramount on Betstco Farmer-Helper chippers. Located surrounding the in-feed bin, the WCRF8 utilizes an easy to activate hydraulic auto-feed stop safety bar to disengage the in-feed rollers in case of an emergency, or to clear the in-feed bin if necessary. By simply pushing on the bar, the user can stop and even reverses the direction of the in-feed roller.
