Question about Shovels & Spades
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.

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.
