SOURCE: Wood Chipper how to

Wear snug fitting clothing when you use a wood chipper. Baggy clothes are dangerous around a wood chipper because they can get caught in the blades and pull you in. Use ear plugs to protect your hearing against the noise when you use a wood chipper. They are loud machines. Protect your eyes by wearing safety glasses. Shredded materials have a tendency to fly when you use a wood chipper. Put on a good pair of work gloves and a hard hat before you start to use a wood chipper. You never know what kind of materials will fly out when you are chipping. Steel-toed safety boots are also a good safety precaution when you use a wood chipper. Keep your hands and feet away from the wood chipper's feed chute area. It only takes a second of distraction to get caught and pulled in. Push materials into the wood chipper by using a long limb or long piece of wood to help keep hands at a safe distance. Small pieces of twigs and all leaves should be thrown into the transport compartment instead of directly into the wood chipper. Clean excess debris from the area around the wood chipper regularly to prevent accidental falls near the machine. Listen to make sure the knives have come to a complete stop before you open the hood when you use a wood chipper.

SOURCE: ineed to sharpen my wood chipper blades on my

It takes me about 5 minutes to Remove, Sharpen, and Re-install my chipper blade for my Bolens mc2500. First, If your using a screen or rollers in the discharge, then remove them. Look underneath, and you will see the thick flywheel. Make sure the spark pug wire is disconnected, then slowly turn the flywheel by hand until you see the two hex head bolts that hold the chipper blade to the flywheel. Also remember which way you take it off, so it goes back together the same way. using an open end or combination wrench remove the two hex bolts. Now to sharpen, I use a medium/ coarse honing tool made for lawnmower blades. I clamp the blade to the top edge of my Bolens with a pair of visegrips, then a little oil, and the sharpening tool, and I'm done sharpening in about 2 minutes, and then re-installing, reversing the removel process. I hope this helps.

Call the place where you rented it from and they will either come out to fix or tell you to bring it back and try a new rental, in any case they should have show you how to properly use this machine before you left, if not insist on it when you go back.

How do I change the blades on a vermeer 1600A chipper


Place the chute over the rotor. Remove all the clamp bolts for one blade. This will allow you to remove the old blade and clamp bar. Clean clamp bar and blade slot. Install new blade with clamp bar. You will need a knife gauge for this. Use the knife gauge at each end of the blade. Torque clamp bolts to 280 ft. lbs. After blades are installed it is necessary to adjust the bed knife by loosening the three bed knife bolts. Use the set screws to adjust the bed knife to 1/16 in. above the lower feed plate. Torque the bed knife bolts to 250 ft. lbs. Then use the other two bolts to adjust the lower feed plate to .013 to .016 between the bed knife and the rotor blades. Put the chute back into place and you are good to go.

This will sound VERY dumb..... I've got a job in the morn., to help my buddy chip brush(he rented a chipper), not sure what size.. I haven't ran a chipper in apx 18-20yrs. So I don't look like a jackwad,...


Ok so it really does depend on what size. Some have ram feeders. Some have pinch rollers that feed material in. Ok so you know what end first? Like any machine you want to start it first. Same procedure as any gas machine. Turn ignition on. If it's pull start, gas on , choke on and pull. Turn choke off, throttle up. IF it's electric, hit the start button. If it's a small unit (home version not diesel ) then when you pull the cord it won't pull very fast as you have quite a flywheel you must get turning. Be patient and it will start. IF it's real small unit, you'll have to push the branches in. If it says it will grind a 3" branch, the remember that's a straight 3" branch. Have a lopper handy to remove stubborn branches that won't go in the chute. Hope he got a self feeding one, much easier.

MTD 5hp. Starting and running only while I spray


Remove the fuel line from the carb. Drain fuel tank and blow thru fuel line until clear. If you use compressed air be very careful to use LOW pressure. I just use my mouth. reinstall fuel line replace the fuel filter, add a new spark plug for good measure and refill gas tank

You should be chipping away right soon!

I had a 625 chipper several years ago with the same problem. It was just that the engine rpm was to slow sometimes. I don't remember exactly what it needed to be but I think it was around 3500 rpm.

Woodchipper troubleshooting


Although chippers vary greatly in size, style, and capacity, the knives they use are similar. They are rectangular in shape and are usually four to six inches (10-15 cm) across by six to twelve inches (15-30 cm) long. They vary in thickness from about one-half to two inches (1-5 cm). Chipper knives are made from high grade steel and usually contain a minimum of 8% chromium for hardness.

Wood Chipper how to


Great input tina783. I have just one thing to add. Try to shred the branches within a reasonable amount of time. I found out that with my shredder, if I put older, dried up branches in, it tends to take a lot more time, as well as tosses chips back out at you. With newly cut branches, this wasn't nearly as much as an issue.
