Compost should be worked into the soil (eventually, at least) to make it more fertile. Mulch, by contrast, is spread atop the soil, both to protect the soil from the elements and to suppress weeds. While it is true that organic mulches will eventually decompose, thereby themselves becoming compost, their function as long as they serve as mulch is distinct from the function of compost.

How do you remove the red on/off switch from the feeder tray of my florabest wood chipper


In the most new there is an auto- power-off inside both or one of the carbon brushes that it will stop when its time, but when you hearing a difference in motor rpm or a strange noise then it can be neccesary.

How do I remove the shredder/mulched impeller from my Tecumseh 5hp OHH50 engine powered chipper/shredder?


tapers break easily when the taper is distorted momentarily

leave the bolt in place unscrewed about 1/8 inch

place a bearing puller under the boss and apply pressure to the head of the bolt

using to heavy hammers , place the head on one side of the boss and hit hard on the other side of the boss

this will release the taper and it will jump to the head of the bolt

remove the bolt

If there is a key in the taper as well then the problem becomes different as you may have to apply heat to the boss to distort the taper and break the rust bond on the key

What kind gas does the 5.5 hp chipper shedder take


Small engines can run on anything supreme or regular, some say they can build up carbon deposits with the lower grades, but I have never seen evidence of it. I don't use additives as they can separate out in some cases clogging the carburetor over a few cool months. I add a couple spoonfuls of 10-40 or 30 weight oil to my gas even if it is not prescribed to protect the upper end under hard use. I like Pennzoil, Havoline, Valvoline since reading a lab comparison years ago. It will fire up anyway with a dash of oil mixed in. I use 10-40 weight oil for all weather use in mowers, chainsaws, weedeaters, chippers...

Why would a jacobsen 14hp lawn tractor bog out when i apply the pto?


Whenever you activate the PTO, it puts an added load on the engine. It drags the RPMs down as the engine overcomes the inertia of the attachment's moving parts: blades, auger, etc. You feel and hear the RPM drop every time. If the engine speed is dragged down too far, it stops. There are several things that can cause this. I'll list the easiest to fix to hardest. Remember, you might have more than one thing wrong. Dirty carb and dull blades might stop the engine when one alone wouldn't.
Attachment problems:
Attachment needs more RPM when you hit the PTO.
Too much resistance to the implement. Mower deck in thick tall grass, snow blower clogged with snow & ice.
Blades need sharpening.
Drive belts too tight, or debris around pulleys. Blades jammed. Belts routed incorrectly after switching attachments. Underside of mower deck clogged with old grass composted over winter
Blade hub bearings need to be lubed. Need grease gun to fit the little metal nipples, called Zerk fittings & a cartridge of "all purpose" grease. BTW you should lube all Zerks regularly to protect bearings from early death.
Diagnose: Disengage PTO, turn off engine, and turn the blades manually. If there is a lot of resistance, the trouble is with the attachment, not with the engine or PTO.
Engine problems:.
Dirty air and/or gas filter; or bad gas. Air intake clogged, Mouse nests under hood. No kidding, happened to me.
Need new spark plug. Old plug can cause power drop even if engine runs.
You may need to go to a pro for more difficult work, such as a bad or broken PTO clutch, compression loss in engine, weak fuel pump, or other engine problems. Your engine is not particular or unique to your tractor. Go to the engine manufacturer's web site for troubleshooting procedures. Also, go to one the many small engine experts here on Fixya. My experience is mostly related to the working machinery.
FINAL POINT relative to all equipment problems. If the easy fixes don't work, check to see if there is any time left on your warranty (if any). If there is, or you don't know, call the manufacturer's customer service department. Even if they only give you some advice, the complaint will be logged and the warranty clock stopped if you need professional work later. Save the case # if they give you one.

What are the major differences between an electrical shredder and a gas shredder?


Electrical shredders are generally cheaper, smaller and lighter; however the cable length can be limiting and the quality of the shredded material sometimes does not turn out so good. Gas shredders allow you to move around your yard freely without restriction and tend to be more powerful. On the down side, they will need more maintenance, in the form of refueling.

Landscape mulch in the fall problem


The uses of landscape mulch are not limited to weed control. Among the other uses of landscape mulch is as an agent to control erosion. Landscape mulch applied in the fall keeps the severe weather conditions of winter from eroding your soil and robbing it of valuable nutrients. And by insulating the frozen soil from the sun's rays on that odd mild day in the winter, you'll help your plants maintain the protective state of dormancy that they're in. As a bonus, when the landscape mulch decomposes, it will release valuable nutrients into your soil. Landscape mulch also improves moisture-retention in the soil, cutting down on your water bill in the summer.
