If a small engine wont start its usually one of two problems, its not getting gas, or its not getting spark. easy way to find out if its getting a spark is to remove the plug, put it back back in the connector and just let it hang down while you try to start it. you should see a bright blue spark, if you dont try changing the spark plug. if its getting a spark come back on this site and i'll help you trouble shoot it.

Why won't the pull cord budge?


My first idea is that the engine was shut off before the chipper or the shredder had not finished. First remove the spark plug. Next remove the covers on the chipper area and the shredder area. Now remove all material from both areas.Replace all covers, put the sparkplug back and try it.

Need new air filter for a tecumseh shredder chipper 10 hp


You can look up the air filter with the model number and order it over the internet from a website such as partstree.com, but there are others. Or, you can get the model number and go to your local small engine repair and parts shop. Mine had it on the shelf. If your chipper/shredder is like my 8 HP Craftsman with a Tecumseh engine, then as you are looking at the engine, look on the left side of the shroud or cover and way down low on the curved portion is a label with the model number on it.

I hope this is helpful for you.

I need a parts and owners manuel for a Super Tomahak Wood chipper made by Garden Way Mfg. Co. where do I go to get one?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Go to this site:

http://www.brentchalmers.com/

I note your looking for the Super Tomahawk. If you can come up with a model number I think I can find your parts manual for sure. (or at least an on-line parts list.) Also.... If you can come up with an engine number like OH120 or L90 off of the engine I can find you a manual for the engine also.

This is the list of Manuals available there:

  • 1983 W-W Grinder Inc. Manual and Parts List Super Tomahawk 5-8-2G/C and Tomahawk 5-8-2G/M Chipper/Shredder (40 Pages)
  • 1989 Troy-Bilt Owner/Operator Manual Junior Tomahawk Chipper/Shredder (24 Pages)

  • 1994 Troy-Bilt PTO Chipper/Shredder Owners Dog Clutch Kit 1902404 (1 Page)


  • Hopefully your model is one of the above.

    Here is link to the Parts manuals:

    http://www.partsandservice.com/html/TroyBilt/cs/

    There are 90 parts manuals there.

    Again with a good model and engine number I can probably come up with your exact manuals.

    Thanks for chosing FixYa,

    How does one change the drive belt on a Craftsman 987.797810 chipper/shredder? I do not see any tightner to loosen to get the new belt on the pulleys.


    I'm a step behind you on this problem. I have the exact same model, and the belt fell apart. I was given this unit, and I doubt the belt was ever replaced before. Do you happen to know what size belt it is? I tried calling Sears; and they didn't have the part anymore and they were of no use on getting a cross reference number. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Looking for manual for craftsman chipper


    The manual can be found HERE.
    On the left side of the page, under "Browse Subcomponents" you can use your RIGHT mouse button to open each page in a seperate window. This reduces the use of your BACK button, and personally, I find it more convenient.

    Hope this helps.
