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: Chipper Maintenance

Maintenance (excluding the power plant) Your primary maintenance concern with chippers and shredders is their knives. You can re-sharpen chipper knives, whereas you can reverse shredder flail-type knives when dull but you can not re-sharpen them. You must sharpen chipper knives with special sharpening equipment because they are made of high-carbon steel. Maintaining sharp knives can lengthen their life and the life of the machine by keeping power requirements low. An over-dulled or chipped chipper knife will need extensive sharpening, which will remove a large portion of the blade. This obviously will shorten its life. As soon as a blade is slightly dull, you should sharpen it to minimize the amount of blade-material that you remove. All knives need sharpening at the same time to keep them in balance-even if only one is worn or chipped. Also, you must use matched sets to keep the knife the same distance from the anvil for proper chipping and feeding. After removing the knives, clean the area where they are fastened with a wire brush to make sure they will align correctly. Be sure to torque the knife bolts to their proper specifications. You will need to examine the anvil and be sure it maintains a good, square edge. Occasionally, you may need to remove and sharpen it.

SOURCE: Can't start Chipper

Unplug the spark plug wire FIRST.  DO NOT SKIP THAT.  Then, WITH THE SPARK PLUG WIRE UNPLUGGED AND DISCONNECTED AND NOWHERE NEAR THE PLUG TIP, get a good sized stick, and try to turn the cutter wheel assembly in reverse.  I suspect you have a piece of wood stuck in there, and it won't come loose unless you turn the thing backwards.  You have to disconnect the spark plug because the engine could fire when you turn it.  Even if it doesn't start, one good kick could hurt you pretty seriously.  So, go unplug the spark plug and do your thing.

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.

Need owners manual for 2001 yard machine chipper schredder model #24A464B131


I have a operator's manual for 24a 463b129 5.5 hp. I also have an operator's manual for the engine (Tecumseh). I purchased the chipper new from Home Depot back in 2002. I think you will be disappointed at the lack of information. If still interested, e-mail me your e-mail address, and I can send you a PDF copy of these manuals. (wchan@bushbros.com)

10 hp Troy Built chipper pull start frozen


If a branch was already being chipped when it ran out of gas...you must clear the hopper of any chunks of wood in it. Pull the plug wire and use a metal pry bar to dislodge any pieces of wood. when the flywheel runs free, put the plug wire back on and the choke on. Try it now!!!

Chippers and Shredders safety tips


Make sure that the machine has come to a complete stop before removing access panels. When performing maintenance on the machine, shut off the engine, remove the key (if electric start) or temporarily disable the machine. Always feed material butt-end first. Feed shorter material into the machine by laying it on top of longer material. Do not feed material that you've raked up or scraped off the ground. You should simply place this material on top of the material that you've already chipped, as it may contain dirt and rocks that may damage the chipper. Chippers with dull knives and anvils do not feed well. This becomes a problem with any machine but especially on manual-feed units. If your operator then tries to force the material into the feed shoot, he or she creates a greater danger of slipping and getting too close to the chipper knives. Do not operate the chipper alone. Always be prepared for a fire or injury by having a fire extinguisher attached to the machine and a first-aid kit handy. It is the operator's responsibility to make sure that flying chips and debris will not harm bystanders.

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.
