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.
GASAND OIL FILL-UP
OIL (Packed with Unit)
Only use high quality
detergent
oil rated with API
service classification
SF, SG or SH. Select the oil's
viscosity grade according to your expected operating
temperature.
Colder
_
32°F
_- Warmer
5W30
SAE 30
NOTE: Although
multi-viscosity
oils (5W30, 10W30,
etc.) improve starting
in cold weather,
these multi-
viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption
when used above 32°F. Check your oil level more fre-
quently to avoid possible engine damage from run-
ning low on oil.
Fill engine with oil as follows. Remove oil fill dip-
stick. See figure 12. With chipper-shredder
level,
use a funnel to fill engine with oi! to FULL mark on
dipstick. Capacity is approximately
21 ounces. Be
careful not to overfill. Tilt chipper-shredder
toward
the left (from behind the hopper),
then re-level.
Check oil level. Refill to FULL mark on dipstick if
necessary. Replace dipstick and tighten.

GAS
Remove fuel cap and fill fuel tank with about 3
quarts of clean, fresh, lead-free grade automotive
gasoline. DO NOT use Ethyl or high octane gaso-
line. Be certain container
is clean and free from
rust or foreign particles.
Never use gasoline
that
may be stale from long periods of storage in the
container. Replace fuel cap.
WARNING:
DO NOT FILL CLOSER THAN
1/2 INCH OF TOP OF FUEL TANK
TO
PREVENT SPILLS AND TO ALLOW FOR
FUEL
EXPANSION.
IF GASOLINE
IS
ACCIDENTLY
SPILLED, MOVE CHIPPER-
SHREDDER
AWAY
FROM
AREA
OF
SPILL. AVOID CREATING
ANY SOURCE
OF IGNITION UNTIL GASOLINE VAPORS
HAVE DISAPPEARED.
