IMPORTANT:
There is a flail screen located inside
the housing in the discharge area.. If the flail screen
becomes clogged, remove and clean as instructed in
the Service and Adjustments
section. For best per-
formance, it is important to keep the shredding blade
and the chipper blades sharp.. If the composition of
the material being discharged
changes (becomes
stringy, etc ) or if the rate at which the material is dis-
charged slows down considerably, it is likely that the
shredding
blade and/or chipper blades are dull and
need to be sharpened
or replaced. Refer to Service
and Adjustments section

multi-viscosity
oils (5W30, 10W30,
etc°) improve starting

viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption
when used above 32°Fo Check your oil level more fre-
quently to avoid possible engine damage from run-
ning low on oil.
