    Thank You
    you are right, the ser # is 325047
    although it still isn't listed, the 86 model listing looks and sounds just like it.

Hi. Olathe went out of business. They were bought out by Toro. You can get blades / knives from Toro. If you go to their commercial /contractor page there are listed here:

You may want to recheck the last 3 digits of your serial number as 046 does not appear. The seril numbers start at 325250 in 1986 and go up from there to 325388 in 1991 (Seems they only made 138 of them from 1986 to 1991) Just a guess but possibly yours is a 1987 model.

There is a manual here Op and Parts:

I did not see a service manual.

The good news is that all of the bearings are very common and NAPA is a great source for them.

This is about the best I can do for you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

    Just a note about the manual you would get. It is 20 pages and re-produced from a microfiche. That is the best you are going to find unless you just happen across one on e-bay. The engine is a ford motor so if you need parts again see Napa and use your engine number. I do believe yours has a governor that would be the only difference. This one was a nice challenge for me. Thanks for making it a good day.

    My apology about the Ford Motor. Your Engine parts can be purchased from Briggs and Stratton. The engine is 8HP and the number should be on the very top of the Air shroud near the park plug.

    Your engine operators manual and parts manual are on this page:

    Take care,

Where do you find a owners manual for olathe model 816 chipper?

There are none to be found. I have located posts from other people wanting the same thing for 5 years. They have had no luck either. I would recommend that you locate the information on the engine alone and look for that.

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:

  • 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)
  • 1989 Troy-Bilt Owner/Operator Manual Junior Tomahawk Chipper/Shredder (24 Pages)

  • 1992 Troy-Bilt 5HP Model Service Kit (Part Nos. 1901153 and 1901804) For Chipper/Vac (1 Page)
  • 1992 Troy-Bilt Owner/Operator Manual 47260, 47261, 47271, 47272 Chipper/Vac (60 Pages)
  • 1993 Troy-Bilt Sales Brochure Chipper/Vac (4 Pages)
  • 1993 Troy-Bilt Owner/Operator Manual 47265, 47266, 47267, 47276 Tomahawk Chipper/Shredder (44 Pages)
  • 1993 Troy-Bilt Parts Catalog 47265, 47266, 47267, 47276 Tomahawk Chipper/Shredder (16 Pages)
  • 1994 Troy-Bilt PTO Chipper/Shredder Owners Dog Clutch Kit 1902404 (1 Page)

  • 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,
