Question about RTO 30 Amp Dpdt 3 Position On-off-on Toggle Switch

1 Answer

I need a replacement toggle switch for a chipper/shredder.The 1/12 hp motor experiences frequent slow downs, depending on what is being chopped. Sometimes it even stops momentarily, I presume causing amperage spikes. It is a 125 volt motor. A regular 20 amp switch I tried lasted about a day. Hal.

My friend did a pretty good search for similar toggle

1) He found a 'wall-type' 30Amp DPDT at Global
2) He said he couldn't find others ... but the internet changes.
3) This switch could be mounted in a box that screws to side of chipper. Switch will work fine with 125V.
4) Radio shack and the automotive stores carry 5 amp versions of the DPDT, but they burn up like you said

5) Here is wiring schematic for switch schematic
6) Note: Wiring is different than automotive-type DPDT toggles where power connects to center pole and loads connect to outside poles
-Power on global DPDT connects to poles L1 and L2
-L1 switches to A1 & B1 ... while L2 switches to A2 & B2.
-Poles L1=>A1 and L2=>A2 turn on-and-off at same time

7) In a reverse of the schematic shown above, my friend is using the global switch on 30Amp water heater to switch voltages between 120 and 240 so we know switch can handle the amperage. schematic

I have a yard machinne 6.5hp chipper/shredder -


The blade(s) should have usually two bolts on them depending how many blades you have. Mine only has one blade held on with two bolts and that is only on the side that cuts the larger branches up to two inches in diameter and should be sharpened on a grinding wheel because it has a specific angle to it. The other side that chips smaller branches and twigs it a type of flailer, meaning pieces of metal just swinging around to mash up the sticks and do not need sharpening.
