SOURCE: Craftsman Chipper-Shredder Model No. 247.775870

If a small engine wont start its usually one of two problems, its not getting gas, or its not getting spark. easy way to find out if its getting a spark is to remove the plug, put it back back in the connector and just let it hang down while you try to start it. you should see a bright blue spark, if you dont try changing the spark plug. if its getting a spark come back on this site and i'll help you trouble shoot it.

SOURCE: 9hhp craftsman chipper shredder won't start

Squirt a couple of spoonfuls of oil into the spark plug hole to increase the compression as it has been sitting so long. Also squirt a little starting fluid into the carb. and give it a shot I think it will start. Hope this will. donnyb60

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 take a little research but do a search for "mower forums" on Google, Bing or Yahoo. Ask your question over there and you just may find someone with one to sell.
Two other places to try. First, do a "saved search" on eBay and wait for one to come up. Or, go to eBay and search for Troy Bilt Chipper parts (or shredder) Look at the sellers and you will find some sellers who sell a lot of parts. Ask them if they would know where to find your part.
Second, on Craigslist post what you are looking for in the "items wanted" section.

Why won't the pull cord budge?


My first idea is that the engine was shut off before the chipper or the shredder had not finished. First remove the spark plug. Next remove the covers on the chipper area and the shredder area. Now remove all material from both areas.Replace all covers, put the sparkplug back and try it.

What year is my wood chipper? I purchased a Craftsman 8hp wood chipper-shredder that is silver-gray in color and all metal in construction with a Briggs & Stratton 8hp motor. The B&S motor is...


The B & S Code is the date of Mfg. This engine was built in 1994 (first two digits rep. the year), Sept.( the next two digits rep. the month) and the second day of that month. Your engine was built on Sept.2,1994. Your chipper may be one year newer as the engine had to be installed after the date of mfg. Your welcome
