I am looking for an owners manual for a Roto Hoe model 500

I am looking for an owners manual for a Roto Hoe Shredder model 500. It has a 5hp briggs & stratton. I am looking for the specs to maintain the shredder. I have all I need for the engine, I am also looking for the screen at the bottom of the shredder. It has 1/2 inch holes and made of metal about 1/4'' thick. I know the company is out of business, but would be interested in a parts source.

SOURCE: What year is my wood

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

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:

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:

  • Hopefully your model is one of the above.

    Here is link to the Parts manuals:

    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,
