I Have a MTB chipper shredder, model 24A-464B062 (sometime between 2000 and 2002), which appears to be a Lowes model. In my case, I left the shredded blade on and backed off the main bolt holding on the impeller so that about 1/4 of an inch of threads were showing. I then attached my harbor freight automotive pulley puller (Pittsburgh - item#66868), with its shaft pushing on the head of the main bolt and its arms hooked onto the shredder blade. I then torqued the puller hard until the shredder blade was bending pretty good. The impeller did not come off. I then used a cold chisel and a hammer to pound around the center cylinder of the impeller (there are two small spots where this can be reached). Still the impeller did not come off. I then used my plumbing torch (with MAPP gas), to heat up the center of the impeller, for about 5 minutes. Still the impeller did not come off. So I returned to the cold chisel and hammer, and after a few hits, the impeller popped loose. I removed the automotive pulley puller (be careful, it is hot), and then the main bolt, and the impeller came right off. After inspection, I noticed that there is no key and that the impeller is attached by a press fit taper. So it looks like what I did is most likely what everybody else would have to do for my model.
