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 Adjustment
section on page 14.
For best performance,
it is important
to keep 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 discharged
slows down considerably,
it is likely that the chipper
blades
are dutl
and
need
to be sharpened
or
replaced. Refer to Service and Adjustments
sections.
TO EMPTY BAG
Open the large zipper on the bag to empty the bag.
See figure 12. Be certain the zipper is closed when
operating the unit.

GASAND OIL FILL-UP
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.
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
frequently
to avoid possible engine
damage
from
running low on oil.
Use engine oil provided. Remove oil fill dipstick.
See figure
13. With chipper-vacuum
level, use a
funnel to fill engine with oil to FULL mark on dipstick.
Capacity is approximately 26 ounces. Be careful not
to overfill.
Oil bottle provided contains 27 oz. of oil.
Tilt chipper-vacuum 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.
