KEEP FUEL AWAY FROM CHILDREN. Use a proper fuel container for your gasoline. Do not remove the gas cap until you have shut down the chipper-shredder-vac. Re-fuel the engine out of doors and only after the engine has cooled down. Use a gasoline funnel.
THE STOP SIGN Move the throttle to OFF to cut power to the chipper-shredder-vac. Notice, we do not say “to stop the chipper-shredder-vac.” Inertia causes the rotor to coast, even after the power is shut off. Don’t...
DANGER decal on your right as you stand behind the machine. FIFTH & LAST* Snap the cone cover over the chipper cone. This seals off all air flow for maximum vacuuming power. *Patented design featured in this step.
• Skinny prunings may be bundled and inserted together. • Green materials chip easier and the knives keep their edges longer. • Resharpen or replace the chipper knives when you notice that they do not self-feed very well. Forcing debris into dull knives causes vibration and will eventually damage or destroy the rotor.
Vacuuming The four blade vacuum draws air into the housings through the shredder hopper and chipper cone. To take full advantage of this air flow system, the optional vacuum kit snaps into the hopper for a 15-ft. reach around the machine.
5. Gently pull the starter cord. If the rotor inside is turning freely, re-attach the spark plug wire, bag, and re-start the engine. If the jam is more serious, remove the chipper cone. Then, use a heavy stick or probe to insert into discharge inlet, and push back against the fan blades on the rotor.
