HI believe that we have a 47287 8 hp chipper/vac where would i find Model on chipper vac

Be sure to compare the removed belt to the new belt for length and width. Often belts get mis-packaged into the wrong container or otherwise mis-labeled. A belt that is even 1/4" longer will not provide the correct contact tension. Also be sure the pins that the carriage moves on are lubricated. Corrosion can keep the carriage from keeping tension on the belt as the carriage weight can not tension the belt. Hope this helps.

I bought a bad photocopy of the Operator manual from a seller on eBay, and put it online:


It\'s not great quality, but it\'s better than nothing.

I\'ve got some parts manual pages there, too. Also of dubious quality, but you can make out the part numbers.

If it's the same as for my 47287 (8HP, 3 spd + reverse), it's part No. 1901996 and is NLA. Let me know if you find a source, mine is also broken.

Be gentle, that shift cable is NLA (I know, I need one).

It sounds as if the belt idler is not releasing. Take a look at the belt engage cable, Ref. No. 9 on this exploded view:


The spring at the end of that cable is what releases the idler from the belt. Another pic of the spring is near the idler arm Ref. No. 13 on this view:


If that spring is broken or missing, that would give the symptoms you describe.
