door, hardtop boot, elbow, hose adapter, hose and
deck adapter are properly attached.
Check tires for proper inflation (12 - 14 Ibs).

•
To stop engine, move the throttle control lever to the

Inspect the Chipper Vac to make sure all covers (rear
door, hard top boot, elbow, chipper chute with tamper
plug, hose adapter (nozzle), hose and deck adapter
are properly attached.
Check tires for proper inflation (12 - 14 Ibs).
Check oil and gas in Chipper Vac engine.
Begin operation at low speed, adjusting forward speed
to match grass height and/or moisture condition to
prevent clogging.
Do not attempt to vacuum up any material other than
vegetation found in a normal yard, such as light
branches, leaves, twigs, etc.

THE
CHIPPER
CHUTE
Material such as stalks or heavy branches up to 3" in
diameter may be fed into the chipper chute as shown
in figure 37.
Be sure to wear eye protection and gloves when
feeding material into the chipper chute.
Use the tamper plug, not your hands, to force material
down through the chipper chute.
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 of discharge slows down considerably, it is likely that the chipper blades are dull and
need to be sharpened or replaced. Refer to the
Service and Adjustments section, on page 23.
&
WARNING:
Do not attempt to feed any
material larger than 3" in diameter into
the chipper chute. Personal injury or
damage to the machine could result.
&
DANGER:
Keep hands out of chipper
chute. Rotating blades in impeller
housing can cause serious injury. Use
the tamper plug to help push material
down into the chute.

•
•
WARNING:
Always stop engine and
disconnect spark plug wire before cleaning, lubricating or before performing any
repairs or maintenance.
MAINTENANCE
Check oil level before each use. Maintain engine oil
as instructed in the separate engine manual.
Service air cleaner every 25 hours under normal
conditions. Clean every few hours under extremely
dusty conditions. Poor engine performance and
flooding usually indicates that the air cleaner should
be serviced. To service the air cleaner, refer to the
separate engine manual.
The spark plug should be cleaned and the gap reset
once a season. Spark plug replacement at the start
of each seasoCl,is recommended, Check the engine
manual for correct plug type and gap specifications.
CLEANING
At the beginning of each season, lubricate the latch,
latch pivot bolt, and the axle where the hitch tongue
pivots, with a light machine oil.
At least once a season, grease or oil the wheel
bearings. Use automotive wheel bearing type grease
or 20 weight oil.
•
•

Make sure the cart, the sides and front panel and top
are cleaned after each use. Grass clippings and
leaves left in the cart will mildew and cause damage
if not cleaned out.
Clean the engine regularly-with a cloth or brush.
Keep the cooling fins on the engine housing clean to
permit proper air circulation which is essential to
engine performance and life. Be sure to remove all
dirt and debris from muffler area.
