CHIPPER-SHREDDER
LUBRICATION
Lubricate the pivot points on the release bar, hopper
assembly,
chute deflector and chipper chute once a
season using a light oil.
CLEANING
• The chipper-shredder may be cleaned by running
water from a hose through the hopper assembly
and chipper chute with the engine running. Allow
the chipper-shredder to dry thoroughly.
• Wash the bag periodically with water. Allow to dry
thoroughly in the shade. Do not use heat.
ENGINE
ENGINE OIL
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.
5W30
SAE 30
NOTE: Although
multi-viscosity
oils (SE30,
10W30,
etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi- vis-
cosity 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.
Your four-cycle
engine will normally consume
some
oil--therefore,
check engine oil level regularly approx-
imately every five hours of operation and before each
usage. Stop engine and wait several minutes before
checking oil level. With engine level, the oil must be to
FULL mark on dipstick
(refer to figure 12). Change
engine oil after the first five hours of operation, and
every twenty-five hours thereafter.
To Drain Oil:
• Drain oil while engine is warm.
a. Remove oil drain plug. Refer to figure 12. Catch
oil in a suitable container.
b. When engine is drained of all oil, replace drain
plug securely.
Refill with fresh oil. Refer to GAS AND OIL FILL-
UP section.
Replace dipstick.
