Chipper Shredder Vacuum won't start

I have a Troy Bilt Chipper Shredder Vacuum (CSV 060 with a 5.5 HP Briggs & STratton engine). I have been using it with no problems for 3 or 4 years. Today the engine seems to be stuck. I can't even pull the starting cord. I looked and the blades seem not to have any obstruction, so I'm sure it is the engine. I know I haven't added oil in a while, and I put some, but I don't know if that's the lack of oil is the cause.

    It was low in oil. After looking at the comments on a video in YouTube, I took out the spark plug, pour a little oil in the cylinder, moved the blades by hand (well, I used a stick), and then pulled the starter rope several times. When I tried to start it again, it did start, belched a lot of smoke once, ran for 5 seconds, and then died again. I am hopeful, because the engine is no longer stuck. I read the manual (I should have done that first!), and realized I've not given the shredder vac any maintenance. I bought a new spark plug and a new air filter. I will clean the machine, put clean oil, cross my fingers, and try again. That will happen this weekend, so I can't report anything now. I'll be happy to get any suggestions. I do think now it was the lack of oil.

    how low was it on oil? do you check/change the oil often? is there any play at all with the blade or flywheel?

This is indeed caused by the problem of lack of oil, but should not be much problem. Frequently used machines require maintenance. You can refer to the following URL: http://educationcare.in/en-machine/3306.html

Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start


It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.
