Question about Chippers & Shredders

1 Answer

Garden chipper does not start

My chipper has a 4 stroke motor - brand 168F (Chinese product), 198cc 6.5HP manual start, which is near new and has worked until recently. When I try to start the motor a backfire/pop occurs with no turn over. I have checked for stale petrol, oil levels, spark plug condition and gap, fuel lines and all seems fine.

hope you can help

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:

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:

    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,

    Brand new, troy-bilt chipper model 4265. put oil in engine filled it with gas and tried to pull the recoil starter. It's locked up. I could lift this unit in the air with the recoil starter.

    Sounds defective. Even if you could fix this problem something else is bound to go wrong. Troy-Bilt has a reputation for quality products and I'd suggest, since it's brand new, you get it replaced.

    Oil? Gas? Additives?

    Small engines like to see SAE30 oil. This is assuming a 4 stroke engine of course (if you have an oil filler spout and dip stick you have a 4 stroke engine). Use regular unleaded gas, and personally I mix STA-BIL into ALL of that gas I use with my small engines. I have too many carburetors to take the chance of needing to rebuild them in the spring.

    You will need model and serial numbers
