Grasp starter handle and pull rope out slowly until engine
reaches start of compression cycle (rope will pull slightly
harder at this point).
Shredding
Chipping
Yard waste such as leaves and pine needles can be placed in
the hopper for shredding. After material has been processed by
the shredder blade and flails, it will be forced out of the chute
deflector, and, if attached, into a debris collection bag.
Observe the following guidelines when shredding yard debris:
•
Never attempt to shred material other than normal yard
debris (leaves, twigs, pine cones, etc.).
•
Avoid shredding fibrous plants such as tomato vines until
they are thoroughly dried out. Fresh vines do not shred
well and tend to wrap themselves around the impeller and
flails.
•
Place reasonable amounts of debris into the hopper at a
time. Do not overload the hopper.
•
Allow the material in the hopper to be drawn into the
blades and shredded before adding additional debris
to the hopper. Failure to due so may result in a clogged
hopper, clogged chute deflector or a stalled engine.
•
WARNING: Never operate the chipper shredder
without chipper chute lowered into the operating
position.
Branches up to two inches (model series CS 2310) or three
inches (model series CS 3310) in diameter can be fed into the
chipper chute. Observe the following guidelines when chipping
branches:
•
Keep both hands firmly on the branch as you feed it into
the chipper chute.
•
Never feed more than one branch into the chipper chute at
a time.
•
Never feed anything other than branches (or wood) into
the chipper chute.
•
Apply intermittent pressure (force, in short pulses) while
feeding larger branches into the chipper chute, to avoid
bogging or stalling the engine.
Avoid placing twigs longer than 24 inches into the hopper.
Twigs longer than 24 inches may result in a clogged
hopper.
IMPORTANT: Never feed branches with a diameter greater
than two (2) inches (Model Series CS 2310) or three (3)
inches (model series CS 3310) into the chipper chute. Doing
so can result in serious damage to your unit’s chipper
blades, flails or impeller.
IMPORTANT: Never place branches with a diameter greater
than 1/2-inch in the hopper. Doing so can result in serious
damage to the unit’s shredder blade, flails or impeller.
NOTE: For best performance, always operate the unit with
sharp chipper blades. If a noticeable loss in performance is
encountered while chipping branches, the chipper blades
should be replaced.
Clearing the Hopper
Should the hopper become clogged with debris during
operation, proceed as follows:
1.
Grasp the handle with both hands and gently agitate the
chipper shredder to help loosen debris, drawing it into the
impeller.
Emptying the Bag
1.
Stop engine.
2.
Squeeze the locking buckle to release the bag’s drawstrap
before loosening it from the chute deflector. See Figure
