I have Troy-Bilt Chipper/Shredder model 47321, 10 HP. I have been having difficulty in getting the thing started. has been taking 15-20 pulls of the cord. when it was new...It started on the 2nd or 3rd pull. Does this thing have a fuel filter some where? Once it does run...the engine will occilate and not run steady with the choke all the way off. Can you help? PS: Oil level is fine. Air Filter was cleaned. If I had to guess?? I think the carb is out of adjustment - Lean setting...(?)

Try changing spark plug, if unit sits outside rain can rust the coil but I would try a new spark plug first and make sure it;s gaped correctly

If you don't see an inline filter then the only filter is a screen in the fuel tank. Sounds like the engine is not getting the fuel it needs. Check the tank and clean as nessesary the screen maybe plugged. If you leave fuel in the tank for long periods of time with out using a fuel stabilizer your carb may need cleaning. Old untreated fuel turns into a varnish like substance. Check your fuel bowl and make sure there is not any dirt in it. You don't mention the engine manufacturer but, mine has the carb adjustment on the bottem of the fuel bowl. I have always used a fuel stabilizer and keep the tank full (filling it with a screened filter) with a added inline filter. In 20 years of my chipper-vacs life never have I had fuel problem.

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,
