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.
