As LeeatCSEb said, It's your float needle and seat not shutting off the flow of gas when your carb bowl is full. Have your needle and seat replaced. Dwain

If fuel is leaking from the fuel filter, replace it. If fuel is flowing freely into carburetor and overflowing, it is likely the float, needle and seat.

Troy bilt chipper/vac model 47287 manual


I bought a bad photocopy of the Operator manual from a seller on eBay, and put it online:

[URL="http://asavage.dyndns.org/Troy-Bilt/"]http://asavage.dyndns.org/Troy-Bilt/[/URL]

It\'s not great quality, but it\'s better than nothing.

I\'ve got some parts manual pages there, too. Also of dubious quality, but you can make out the part numbers.

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:

http://www.brentchalmers.com/

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)

  • Hopefully your model is one of the above.

    Here is link to the Parts manuals:

    http://www.partsandservice.com/html/TroyBilt/cs/

    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,

    Troy-bilt Model 47279


    I really hate to be the "bearer of bad tidings" but Troy Bilt, as a company, in no longer in business, MTD bought out the name and design rights for a lot of their tools but they are not manufacturing or stocking any parts for the older GardenWay/ Troy-Bilt machinees. My best suggestion would be tostart looking for a good used one or one with a blown engine, broken frame or whatever, buy it and canibalize it for spare parts

    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!!!

    Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start


    It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.
