Maintenance (excluding the power plant) Your primary maintenance concern with chippers and shredders is their knives. You can re-sharpen chipper knives, whereas you can reverse shredder flail-type knives when dull but you can not re-sharpen them. You must sharpen chipper knives with special sharpening equipment because they are made of high-carbon steel. Maintaining sharp knives can lengthen their life and the life of the machine by keeping power requirements low. An over-dulled or chipped chipper knife will need extensive sharpening, which will remove a large portion of the blade. This obviously will shorten its life. As soon as a blade is slightly dull, you should sharpen it to minimize the amount of blade-material that you remove. All knives need sharpening at the same time to keep them in balance-even if only one is worn or chipped. Also, you must use matched sets to keep the knife the same distance from the anvil for proper chipping and feeding. After removing the knives, clean the area where they are fastened with a wire brush to make sure they will align correctly. Be sure to torque the knife bolts to their proper specifications. You will need to examine the anvil and be sure it maintains a good, square edge. Occasionally, you may need to remove and sharpen it.

If I buy an Amana Chipper, does it come with a warranty?


All new products should come with a warranty. When I bought my chipper it had a 1 year labor and parts warranty. On the amazon site it says that the product comes with a limited lifetime guarantee, so it's good to check the small print.

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)

  • 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,

    5 hp briggs & stratton on a chipper/shreader


    if the starter rope fails to retract, then you need to either fix a broken spring, or put a new one in. You'll have to take the engine cover off, and you'll be able to see how to take apart the retractor assembly. Often times, just the end of the spring will break off, and if you have a grinder, you can grind the correct shape in it again, and reinstall it as is.

    Chippers and Shredders safety tips


    Make sure that the machine has come to a complete stop before removing access panels. When performing maintenance on the machine, shut off the engine, remove the key (if electric start) or temporarily disable the machine. Always feed material butt-end first. Feed shorter material into the machine by laying it on top of longer material. Do not feed material that you've raked up or scraped off the ground. You should simply place this material on top of the material that you've already chipped, as it may contain dirt and rocks that may damage the chipper. Chippers with dull knives and anvils do not feed well. This becomes a problem with any machine but especially on manual-feed units. If your operator then tries to force the material into the feed shoot, he or she creates a greater danger of slipping and getting too close to the chipper knives. Do not operate the chipper alone. Always be prepared for a fire or injury by having a fire extinguisher attached to the machine and a first-aid kit handy. It is the operator's responsibility to make sure that flying chips and debris will not harm bystanders.
