Question about Briggs & Stratton Chipper Shredder Patriot 9 Hp Gas Briggs and Stratton Chipper Shredder

1 Answer

The gas tank on my Briggs&Stratton 850 chipper shredder started leaking gas while I was useing it. Looking at it closely I spotted a hole in the side of the gas tank next to the exhaust. So I thought it might be something I did and I orderd a new gas tank.When I removed the leaking gas tank I saw that the tank had melted and opened up a 1/4 inch hole. This now makes me very hesitant to usr this equipment,I installed the new tank but this could have turned out very badley.What is the FIX.

Looking at a picture of this design, the corner of the gas tank comes close to the heat shield that houses the muffler which gets very hot. The heat shield is supposed to stay cooler than the muffler because it has ventilation slots, but perhaps it got clogged up with debris and dirt, which is always flying around a chipper unit. Take compressed air and blow out the heat shield area. This may reduce the risk of a recurrence, but I have to agree with your safety concerns about this equipment.

I need a gas tank for a Troy Bilt chipper shredder model #47329


TroyBilt no longer wants anything to do with their older chipper shredders, so no luck there. However, it is a Briggs and Stratton engine and gas tank and I just called them at 800 743 4115 and ordered a replacement gas tank. They will need the engine numbers (on the opposite side of the gas tank below the muffler) to find the gas tank part number. Mike Ryan

Briggs & Stratton Van Guard 16 hp D.C. Chipper with Gravity Flow. With fuel switch on and starting engine four minutes, white smoke apprears and increases gradually, then heavier and chokes itself...


Sounds like your carb is flooding. Inside the carb, there is a simple valve that shuts off the fuel flow when the fuel bowl is full. If this valve fails, or if the float sinks, then too much fuel is forced into the cylinder and will wash past the rings and into the crankcase. This causes the engine to run very rich. You need to remove, clean and overhaul the carb, and change the oil and sparkplug and probably the air filter too. Find the model, type, and code numbers on the engine and go to www.partstree.com , www.ordertree.com , or your local repair shop to get the needed carb overhaul kit. Some B&S engines have an option of carbs, so look for a name on the carb itself...probably Nikki or Walbro. The carb kit is not very difficult to install, but make sure to get everything very clean before reassembly.
Good luck.

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.
