SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Before operating the chipper, read this manual, the engine manual, and all the safety decals
on the machine. Know all parts of the machine and their functions, especially the shut
down procedures in case of emergency. No inexperienced person may operate the chipper.
Inexperience may cause injury. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure all operators are
trained and fully understand all safety and operational aspects of the chipper.
This machine was built with safety in mind. The guards and other safety devices only work
when kept in place and secured properly. Safety decals are placed on the machine as
reminders of how to operate the machine safely, pay attention to the instructions.
SAFETY FIRST ALWAYS!
This is the Safety-Alert Symbol. This symbol is placed on the machine and in the
manual to alert the operator to the potential for bodily injury or death. The operator
should pay close attention to the instructions whenever they see this symbol.
The Safety-Alert Symbol will be accompanied by one of the following words:
DANGER, WARNING, or CAUTION
•
•
•
A DANGER symbol means that if the instructions are not followed the possibility of
serious personal injury or death is probable.
A WARNING symbol means that if the instructions are not followed there is a
possibility of serious personal injury or death.
A CAUTION symbol means there is an unsafe condition or practice that may cause
personal injury or property damage.
PERSONAL PROTECTION:

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Be Safe and Practice Safe Operation using the following guidelines.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Any individual operating this chipper
must first read and understand this
manual, the engine and other
component manuals supplied with the
chipper, and all safety and operational
decals on machine.
DO NOT permit children to operate
machinery or to play near machinery
during operation.
DO NOT allow spectators to stand and
watch chipper in operation.
DO NOT allow people to pass by
discharge zone while chipper is in
operation.
Keep hands, feet, legs, clothing, hair
and all other body parts away from
feed intake wheels, chipper knives, and
other moving parts.
Do not hang from, ride, sit, stand, lay,
or climb anywhere on this chipper
while it is in operation, running, or
being transported.
Do not move, position, or transport
this chipper with the engine running.
Keep away from pressurized leaks.
Never check for leaks using hand or
finger, use cardboard or wood.
Pressurized fluid can penetrate the skin
and cause injury or even death.
DO NOT operate any machinery while
under the influence of alcohol or drugs
(prescription, over the counter, or
otherwise).
DO NOT modify or change any part
without written approval from J. P.
Carlton Company.
•
•
•
•
•
•
No one should ever reach, lean, or kick
into the feed intake chute when the
chipper or the engine is running. Feed
wheels will pull in anything in the path
of operation and will cause severe
personal injury if a person is pulled
into feed intake wheels.
Always load shorter pieces of wood or
brush on top of longer pieces or use
push paddle, never reach into the feed
intake chute to load these pieces.
Stay clear of discharge zone when
running chipper. Never allow anyone
to stand near or to walk close to the
discharge zone, even if being
discharged into a bin or truck.
Airborne debris may cause severe
injury. If inspection of chipped
material is required, shut down the
chipper and the engine first.
Discharge spout should not be pointed
toward people, buildings, or other
personal property that may be injured
or damaged. Airborne debris is as
dangerous as any powerful projectile.
Never position, adjust, or move the
discharge chute while the chipper or
the cutter drum are running
6
18” DRUM
•
•
•
Always have at least 2 operators at the
job site running the chipper. One to
load the brush into the feed wheels and
the other to maintain the feed control
bar in case of an accident.
Always feed trees and brush butt end
first and walking to the right side of
the chipper, material being fed should
be to the operator’s left side. The
material being fed tends to kick to the
left and could injure anyone on that
side.
Never lean over material being loaded
into the feed wheels; especially small
diameter, short length material that is
still long enough to be fed into the feed
wheels alone. The material is not
heavy enough to hold down when the
feed wheels first grab it and will kick
up hitting the operator in the chin or
head causing injury.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
CUTTER DRUM
DOOR
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Never lay vine type material in front of
feed intake chute.
Never allow yourself or your clothing
to become tangled in or tripped by vine
type material. SEVERE INJURY
COULD OCCUR.
Always cut vine type material into
shorter, easier to handle pieces,
approximately 4 to 5 feet.
Don’t feed the vines into the chipper
unless they have been cut!!!
STOP automatic feed system and run
vine type material through using
manual start/stop controls and a
wooden push paddle.
•
•
•
•
KEEP CUTTER DRUM DOOR
CLOSED WHILE CHIPPER IS
RUNNING. Always make sure the
cutter drum door latch pin is in place
and locked securely using a padlock
before starting chipper. The cutter
drum door must be locked using the
factory issued lock pin and padlock.
Never open the cutter drum door while
engine is running. After the engine is
turned off, allow the cutter drum to
come to a complete stop before
opening the cutter drum door. This
will take several minutes
Never run the chipper or the engine
with the cutter drum door open or
unlocked at any time or for any reason.
If the cutter drum door or hinge is
damaged, replace immediately.
Always have the trees and brush cut to
size for the chipper before the chipper
arrives at the job site.
It is very dangerous to run a chain saw
and the chipper at the same time.
If a tree gets jammed and has to be
trimmed, shut down the chipper first.

•
No one should ever reach, lean, or kick
into the feed intake chute when the
chipper or the engine is running. Feed
wheels will pull in anything in the path
of operation and will cause severe
personal injury if a person is pulled
into feed intake wheels.
Always load shorter pieces of wood or
brush on top of longer pieces or use
push paddle, never reach into the feed
intake chute to load these pieces.
Stay clear of discharge zone when
running chipper. Never allow anyone
to stand near or to walk close to the
discharge zone, even if being
discharged into a bin or truck.
Airborne debris may cause severe
injury. If inspection of chipped
material is required, shut down the
chipper and the engine first.
Discharge spout should not be pointed
toward people, buildings, or other
personal property that may be injured
or damaged. Airborne debris is as
dangerous as any powerful projectile.
Never position, adjust, or move the
discharge chute while the chipper or
the cutter drum are running

•
•
Always have at least 2 operators at the
job site running the chipper. One to
load the brush into the feed wheels and
the other to maintain the feed control
bar in case of an accident.
Always feed trees and brush butt end
first and walking to the right side of
the chipper, material being fed should
be to the operator’s left side. The
material being fed tends to kick to the
left and could injure anyone on that
side.
Never lean over material being loaded
into the feed wheels; especially small
diameter, short length material that is
still long enough to be fed into the feed
wheels alone. The material is not
heavy enough to hold down when the
feed wheels first grab it and will kick
up hitting the operator in the chin or
head causing injury.

MACHINE CONTROLS
It is imperative that all operators are familiar with all controls of the chipper. This will make for
a much more productive and safer work period. (The actual controls may differ depending on
the engine supplied with your chipper.)
ENGINE CONTROLS:
•
For the John Deere 170HP engine, the
Key Switch and Gauges are located in a
lockable panel at the rear of the engine.
Always turn off the engine and remove
the key from the switch before
performing service or maintenance of
any kind.
•
The engine is supplied with a threeposition key switch. Turn the key
clockwise all the way to start the engine;
always start the engine at idle. When the
engine is running, release the key and it
returns to the on (run) position. Turn the
key counter-clockwise to shut down the
engine.
DO NOT OPERATE THE ENGINE
AT AN ANGLE GREATER THAN
25° OR SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE
WILL OCCUR. PROPER ENGINE
OIL LEVEL MUST BE MAINTAINED
TO ACHIEVE MAXIMUM ANGLE
OF OPERATION OF 25°. (See Engine
Owner’s Manual for proper oil level.)
•
A throttle switch is located next to the
key switch. The lower (idle) position is
for starting the engine, low speed engine
operation during warm up, clutch
engagement/disengagement, and engine
cool down. The upper position is for
running the engine at full speed during
chipping operations.

MACHINE CONTROLS
Also in the control box is a diagnostic
gauge/hour meter. The configuration at
the right is typical for this engine; but
may vary depending on the make and
model of the engine supplied with your
chipper. Read the engine manufacturer’s
manual to fully understand all the
functions of this gauge.
This gauge will show the engine speed,
oil pressure and temperature, warning
codes for engine problems, and the hours
of operation.
The Auto-Feed Plus® monitors the
engine RPM and controls the feed
system based on this information. The
Auto-Feed is calibrated when installed in
the chipper with a high and low RPM
setting for the feed wheels to operate.
When the engine RPM is low and the
Auto-Feed is on, the hydraulics will not
work. If large diameter wood is being
chipped and the engine RPM drops
below the Auto-Feed Low setting, the
Auto-Feed will stop the feed wheels.
After the engine RPM is high enough to
handle the force required to chip this
material without causing the engine to
lug down, the Auto-Feed restarts the
feed wheels.
The Auto-Feed Plus® control is
calibrated to automatically come on
when the chipper is started. If you need
to turn on the Auto-Feed Plus® control,
press and hold the right button down for
4 seconds and release.
The Auto-Feed must be turned off to
operate the hydraulics at low engine
RPM or idle. When the Auto-Feed is on
the hydraulics only work when the
engine RPM is high. To operate the feed
wheels at low engine RPM, turn off the
Auto-Feed by pressing and holding the
left button for 4 seconds and release.

CLUTCH ENGAGEMENT HANDLE
•
•
The clutch is to be engaged and
disengaged at low engine speeds only.
NEVER ENGAGE OR DISENGAGE
THE PTO/CLUTCH AT ENGINE
SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 1200 RPM.
Engagement or disengagement of the
clutch at elevated engine speeds can
cause severe clutch damage. This is not
warrantable. Please refer to clutch
manufacturers’ manual for clutch
adjustment procedures.
To engage the clutch:
− Engine must be below 1200 RPM
− Infeed chute must be clear of
material
− Feed control bar must be in the stop
(middle) position
− Bring the cutter drum up to speed by
a series of short engagements and
disengagements at intervals long
enough to prevent excessive heat
build up in the facings. UNDER NO
CIRCUMSTANCES should the
clutch be slipped without fully
engaging or disengaging the clutch
to permit it to cool.
− Engage clutch fully. This should
take a minimum of 100 lbs. of force
to engage clutch on over center
models (shown here), which will
require most of the operators’
strength. If the clutch engages with
less force than this, it needs to be
adjusted immediately! Clutches out
of adjustment will slip and fail in a
very short period of time. This type
of failure is not covered by the
warranty. (Please refer to clutch
manufacturers’ manual for clutch
adjustment procedures.)
− New clutches or new facings require
several frequent adjustments until the
friction facings have “worn in”. (See

sides of the infeed chute; across the top
and down each side.
• The feed control bar has three distinct
positions
− In the out position pulled towards the
rear of the machine the bar is now in
the feed position. In this position the
feed wheels are engaged and will pull
material into the chipper
− In the middle position the bar is in the
stop position. With the bar in this
position the feed wheels are stopped
and do not rotate.
− In the in position pushed towards the
front of the chipper the feed control bar
is in the reverse mode. This position
reverses the feed wheels and attempts
to back material out of the chipper.

with a hydraulic yoke lift, which allows
the operator to hydraulically lift the top
feed wheel. This can be of assistance
when feeding large square-cut butt ends,
which the feed wheels cannot ride up
easily. The lift cylinders can also be
used to provide positive down pressure
on material being fed. This is useful
when feeding extremely bushy material
or material which the feed wheel cannot
grab.
The Lift cylinder control valve is located
on the right rear of the infeed chute.

system based on this information. The
Auto-Feed® is calibrated when installed
in the chipper with a high and low RPM
setting for the feed wheels to operate.
When the engine RPM is low and the
Auto-Feed® is on, the hydraulics will
not work. If large diameter wood is
being chipped and the engine RPM
drops below the Auto-Feed® Low
setting, the Auto-Feed® will stop the
feed wheels. After the engine RPM is
high enough to handle the force required
to chip this material without causing the
engine to lug down, the Auto-Feed®
restarts the feed wheels.
The Auto-Feed Plus® control is
calibrated to automatically come on
when the chipper is started. If for some
reason you need to turn on the AutoFeed Plus® control, press and hold the

CLUTCH ENGAGEMENT
•
•
The clutch is to be engaged and
disengaged at low engine speeds only.
NEVER ENGAGE OR DISENGAGE
THE PTO/CLUTCH AT ENGINE
SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 1200 RPM.
Engagement or disengagement of the
clutch at elevated engine speeds can
cause severe clutch damage. This is not
warrantable. Please refer to the clutch
manufacturers’ manual for clutch
adjustment procedures.
To engage the clutch:
− Engine must be below 1200 RPM
− Infeed chute must be clear of
material
− Feed control bar must be in the stop
(middle) position
− Bring the cutter drum up to speed by
a series of short engagements and
disengagements at intervals long
enough to prevent excessive heat
build up in the facings. UNDER NO
CIRCUMSTANCES should the
clutch be slipped without fully
engaging or disengaging the clutch
to permit it to cool.
− Engage clutch fully. This should
take a minimum of 100 lbs. of force
to engage clutch on over center
models (shown here), which will
require most of the operators’
strength. If the clutch engages with
less force than this, it needs to be
adjusted immediately! Clutches out
of adjustment will slip and fail in a
very short period of time. This type
of failure is not covered by the
warranty. (Please refer to the clutch
manufacturers’ manual for clutch
adjustment procedures.)
− New clutches or new facings require
several frequent adjustments until the
friction facings have “worn in”.

The engine should always be run at high
RPM while material is being chipped or
the Auto-Feed Plus will stop the feed
wheels until the RPM is above the
minimum for your engine. Chipping at
high RPM will help keep the discharge
chute from clogging. High engine speed
increases the throwing power.

PERSONAL SAFETY
•
All personnel must be wearing
protective equipment: eye and ear
protection; hard hat; short fitted gloves

work boots with skid resistant soles.
FEED MATERIAL
•
•
•
•
•
You are now ready to start feeding
material into the chipper.
Always have at least two operators at
the job site. One to load the trees and
brush into the chipper and one to always
stand and operate the feed control bar. It
is imperative to have someone operate
the feed control bar in case of an
accident where someone is pulled into
the feed wheels.
Always have the trees and brush cut to
size for the chipper before the chipper
arrives at the job site.
It is very dangerous to run a chain saw
and the chipper at the same time.
If a tree gets jammed and has to be
trimmed, shut down the chipper.
ALWAYS FEED MATERIAL FROM THE RIGHT SIDE
AND BUTT END FIRST
38
18” DRUM
•
•
•
•
•
MACHINE OPERATION
Always feed trees and brush walking to
the right side of the chipper, material
being fed should be to the operators’ left
side. When the material is being fed into
the feed wheels it tends to kick to the left
and an operator could be injured if
loading the material from the left side.
Start feeding smaller diameter trees and
brush first and work your way up to the
full capacity of the chipper, which is 18”
diameter material. Feed pieces long
enough for the feed wheels to pick up
without endangering yourself by
reaching into the infeed chute. No one
should ever reach or kick into the
infeed chute for any reason when the
feed wheels or engine are running.
Feed shorter pieces of brush and limbs
on top of longer material.
Pay close attention to feeding the small
diameter material that is long enough, 6’
or shorter, to be fed into the feed wheels
but doesn’t have enough weight to be
held down when the wheels first grab
onto it. This material could kick straight
up and hit the operator causing injury.
Hold the material away from the body
using both hands and never lean over the
material in case the feed wheels cause it
to kick up. Use the hydraulic lift cylinder
to open the feed wheels when feeding
this type of material.
Do not hold onto or try to force the
material through the chipper. Once the
material has been grabbed by the feed
wheels and is being chipped, release it
and let the chipper do its job. When the
chipper feed wheels are feeding the
material, turn away from the material
and walk away to get more material.
There are two air vents on the drum
chipper, one on each side of the drum.
When chipping vine type material or
very fine material, you may need to open
these vents to allow air to circulate to
prevent clogging. Open if the engine
RPM starts to drop significantly.

18” DRUM
MACHINE OPERATION
LIFT CONTROL
•
•
The Carlton drum chipper comes
equipped with a hydraulic yoke lift,
which allows the operator to
hydraulically lift the top feed wheel.
This can be of assistance when feeding
large square cut butt ends, which the
feed wheels cannot ride up easily. The
lift cylinders can also be used to provide
positive down pressure on material being
fed. This is useful when feeding
extremely bushy material or material
which the feed wheels cannot grab.
The Lift cylinder control valve is located
on the right rear of the infeed chute.
− Push the valve in to raise the lift
cylinder also raising the top feed
wheel
− Pull the valve handle out to lower the
lift cylinder and provide positive
down pressure on the top feed wheel.

FUEL FILTER & FUEL/WATER
SEPARATOR
Replace the fuel filter every 500 hours of
operation or 6 months. Follow the engine
owner’s manual on how to remove the filters
and to drain the fuel/water separator. Only
use engine manufacturer approved fuel
filters. Make sure to clean the area around
the fuel filter before removing any parts; do
not take a chance on contaminating the fuel
line. Do not leave spilled fuel on the
machine; spilled fuel on hot engine parts can
cause fires.

COOLANT SYSTEM
Pressurized System: Hot coolant can cause
serious burns. To open the cooling system filler
cap, stop the engine and wait until the coolant
system components are cool. Loosen the cooling
system pressure cap slowly in order to relieve the
pressure.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Check the coolant level daily when the
engine is off and all parts are cool.
Remove the coolant filler cap slowly to
relieve built up pressure.
When adding coolant to the tank, leave
at least 1/2" between the coolant and the
bottom of the filler pipe. Anti-freeze
ratio to water must be 50/50, never use
100% anti-freeze.
Clean the coolant filler cap and check
the caps’ gaskets for damage. Replace
the cap if the gaskets are damaged.
Inspect the coolant system for leaks.
(For other service on the coolant system
refer to the engine owner’s manual.)
Be sure to replace the filler cap before
starting the engine.
John Deere engines require a special
coolant additive. Read your engine
owner’s manual for additional coolant
information.

FEED CONTROL BAR
•
•
•
•
•
Before starting to chip any wood, always
test the feed control bar. Make sure the
reverse, stop, and forward feed positions
work properly.
Contact Carlton or an authorized dealer
immediately if the control bar doesn’t
work properly in any of the three
positions.
ALWAYS VERIFY CORRECT
FUNCTION OF THE FEED
CONTROL BAR BEFORE
BEGINNING TO CHIP MATERIAL
NO ONE SHOULD EVER REACH,
LEAN, OR KICK INTO THE FEED
INTAKE CHUTE WHEN THE
MACHINE OR THE ENGINE IS
RUNNING
Grease the feed control bar every 30-40
hours of operation as needed. There is a
grease fitting on the end of each side of
the feed control bar.
FEED CONTROL LINKAGE
•
Apply a light coating of oil to the feed
control linkage weekly.

18” DRUM
MACHINE MAINTENANCE
FEED WHEEL TENSION SPRINGS
•
The upper feed wheel has two tension
springs. These springs should only be
tight enough to keep the feed wheel teeth
from slipping on the material. DO NOT
OVER TIGHTEN! If the springs are
overly tight, it will over work the
hydraulic system and make it difficult to
feed large material. The springs can be
adjusted using the nuts on the bolt at the
bottom of the spring.
HITCH
•
•
•
•
Make sure the bolts on the chipper hitch
are tightened. If not, tighten to the
specified torque for the bolts size. Also,
make sure the hitch bolts on the tow
vehicle are tightened properly.
Check the bolts and nuts for wear. If
bolt or nut threads are chipped or worn
down, or if the bolts and nuts won’t stay
tight after tightening them, the bolts and
nuts need to be replaced. Check the bolt
holes for wear also. If the holes are
stretched or distorted, the hitch will need
to be replaced.
Keep the Pintle ring on the chipper
greased. This will keep the wear
between the two metal surfaces down to
a minimum and will make your hitch last
longer.
If the Pintle ring is worn and does not fit
the hitch on the tow vehicle properly,
replace it as soon as possible. The loose
fit between the two surfaces may cause
the chipper to swerve in traffic and
possibly even come uncoupled from the
tow vehicle. Also check the hitch on the
tow vehicle for wear for the same
reasons.

LIGHTS WIRING
•
•
•
Check lighting wire connections for
damage, and loose or broken wires.
Make sure the lights are working
properly at all times when towing.
See the Machine Wiring section of this
manual for wiring diagram.
BREAKAWAY SWITCH
•
Check to make sure the breakaway
switch is working properly. This switch
activates the brakes if the chipper ever
becomes uncoupled from the tow
vehicle. When the switch separates,
power is sent to the brakes. Check the
wiring for any loose or broken wires.
Replace or rewire if necessary.

JACK STAND – FRONT
•
•
•
Check the lock pins to make sure they
are fitting properly and in good shape.
Replace any pins that are worn, bent or
damaged in any way. Make sure holes
for lock pins are not worn or stretched.
Check general condition of the jack
stand. Make sure the holes are not worn
or elongated. Check the bottom of the
jack to make sure it will sit level on level
ground. Replace the jack stand if it is
warped, has unusual wear, or if it won’t
hold position when supporting the
chipper.
Grease the jack stand as necessary. See

All guards and covers must be in place
and in good condition without any gaps
or openings. Replace any bent or
damaged guards or covers immediately.
Check condition of springs. Replace any
that have gaps or overlapped coils.
TIRES AND AXLES
•
•
•
•
•
•
Check tires air pressure daily. Inflate
tires as necessary. Keep tires air
pressure adjusted based on the
temperature and the load.
When towing, make sure the chipper is
sitting as close to level as possible to
ensure proper tire wear and axle
alignment.
Check lug nuts for proper tightness.
Tighten when necessary. Replace lug
nuts if the threads are worn, chipped, or
missing.
Check tire rims for damage that could
cause improper air pressure. If rims are
damaged beyond repair, replace.

LUBRICATION
To lubricate the bearings in the PTO/Clutch
USE ONLY NGLI (National Grease and
Lubrication Institute) APPROVED High
grade, lithium base #2, short fiber grease
with an EP (extreme pressure) additive
recommended for use in high-speed roller
bearings operating at 200°F (93.3°C).
Carlton uses TEXACO® STARPLEX II
grease. Listed below are the manufacturer’s
suggested guidelines for lubrication:
1. Release Bearing – using a hand-operated
grease gun, add 1 or 2 pumps of grease
per 8 to 10 hours of operation (or add
grease until grease begins to weep from
the ID of the bearing and from the
release sleeve and the shaft). Rotate the
shaft manually (by hand) while adding
grease. DO NOT OVER GREASE!
2. Main Bearings – grease every 100 hours
of operation. Add grease until grease is
forced out of the labyrinth seal(s) around
the shaft. Manually (not by starting the
engine) rotate the shaft while adding
grease.
3. PTO cross shaft (engagement linkage) –
grease every 500 hours of operation.
Add 1 or 2 pumps of grease using a hand
operated grease gun.

CLUTCH ADJUSTMENT
The clutch in this machine does not
automatically adjust to compensate for wear
of the clutch facing(s) and therefore must be
manually adjusted. Maintaining the
correct engagement pressure is the
responsibility of the owner/operator. The
owner/operator must periodically adjust
the clutch to ensure correct clutch
operation. The clutch requires frequent
adjustments when parts are new to
prevent slipping, overheating, and failure.
MEASURING ENGAGEMENT FORCE
The clutch should be adjusted if the force
required for engaging the clutch drops by 10
to 15 percent of the specified force.
Destructive damage may have already
occurred if engagement force is allowed to
diminish to the point where the clutch fails
to carry the load (slippage) or facing(s) have
overheated.
NOTE:
• New clutches or new facings usually
require several frequent adjustments
until the friction facing surfaces have
“worn in”. The clutch friction facing
plates will become glazed and
possibly permanently damaged if the
clutch is permitted to slip
excessively.
• If the facings have been slipped
excessively, and enough heat was
generated that the facings began to
smoke, the clutch material may have
been destroyed. Excessive heat
normally destroys the friction
material. Therefore, further clutch
adjustment will not remedy the
slippage problems. Replace “burned”
facing plates.
CLUTCH ENGAGEMENT
68
18” DRUM
The preferred method of checking the force
required to engage the clutch is using a
torque wrench to check the foot-pounds
required to engage the clutch. The torque
wrench should be used at the cross shaft to
measure engagement force. For the clutch
used in this machine, the reading should be
between 108-115 ft-lbs. The clutch should
ENGAGE within this torque reading range.
An adapter, Twin Disc, Inc. part number
02036484, may be obtained to provide a
1 1/2" hex nut at the end of the cross shaft.
The adapter may be used in place of the
standard handle for the purpose of checking
clutch adjustment with a torque wrench or it
may be installed on the end of the cross
shaft. (Most PTOs have serrations on both
ends of the cross shaft.) Another method for
checking engagement force is the spring
scale method, which is covered in the
PTO/Clutch manual.

INSPECT/CHANGE KNIVES
•
•
•
Cutter drum knives need to be kept sharp
and free of chips to keep the chipper
running smoothly. Visually inspect
knives daily for dull edges, chips, and
other damage. Dull or chipped knives
do not cut well adding stress to the
engine and requiring more power to cut
through the wood. This can cause heat
to build up and cause knife failure.
Check the knives if the wood chips are
too large, if the material will not feed
properly, or if the engine lugs down.
Always wear leather gloves when
handling knives. Edges are extremely
sharp and could cause severe injury.
DANGER: MAKE SURE THE IGNITION KEY HAS
BEEN REMOVED AND MACHINE CAN’T BE STARTED
BEFORE SERVICING ANY PART OF THE CHIPPER.

If both edges are worn or chipped, have
knives ground to sharpen.
Never use knives that are below 2 3/8”
from center of hole to outside edge of
knife. Keep sets of knives together that
are ground to the same distance from
center of hole to outside edge. This will
keep the cutter drum balanced reducing
chipper vibration and improving cutting.
A set is four knives.
ONLY have knives sharpened by an
authorized dealer using the proper

the anvil is 59° maintain this angle when
grinding. DO NOT grind the anvil to the
point that all the adjustment capability is
gone, replace with a new anvil. DO
NOT grind more than 1/8” per side.

since it was put on with LocTite® 262
and then tightened to 150 ft. lbs.
CAUTION: Always wear eye
protection when working on hydraulic
components.
•
There is a special tool required to
separate the motor and coupling once
it is off the machine, contact J. P.
Carlton or your local dealer to
purchase the puller.
•
Attach the separating tool to the coupler
as shown and screw the three bolts from
the bushing into the tool in the outside
holes. Screw the bolts into the coupling
as far as they will go. Now turn the bolt
in the center of the tool to pull the
coupling off the feed wheel motor.
•
Remove the torque arm held on with two
1/2” bolts. (The torque arm looks
slightly different on the upper feed
motor, but is still held on with two
bolts.)

SERVICE
FEED WHEEL MOTOR
Replace with new motor. Clean the
threads on the motor, the 1” nut, and the
coupling with degreaser before
beginning to replace all the parts.
LINE UP KEY WITH
KEYWAY ON COUPLING
•
Attach the torque arm to the new motor
using the 1/2” bolts that were removed.
Tighten the bolts and torque to 120 ft.
lbs. (The torque arm looks slightly
different on the upper feed motor, but is
still held on with two bolts.)
•
Put the coupling onto the motor and line
up key and keyway – always use new
key. Use a rubber mallet to seat the
coupling. Strike the coupling a couple
of times. Apply LocTite 262 (red) to the
1” nut and screw in place. Torque the
nut to 150 ft. lbs. Strike the coupler
again a couple of times with the rubber
mallet to finish seating and torque the
nut to 150 ft. lbs. again.
STRIKE THE COUPLING WITH RUBBER MALLET TO SEAT

18” DRUM
•
Return the feed wheel motor assembly to
the machine and tighten the bolts in the
bushing. Tighten each bolt a little at a
time to pull the coupling into place as
straight as possible. Try not to pull one
side on faster than the other or damage
may occur to the bushing and the
coupling. When bolts are screwed in all
the way, torque the bolts to 35 ft. lbs.
•
Reconnect the hydraulic hoses making
sure to connect them in the right order,
see markings made when hoses were
removed. If hoses are reversed, the feed
wheels will work in reverse. Change
hoses if this happens to make feed
wheels turn correctly.
•
Replace the rubber guard and bolt into
place using the two 3/8” bolts that were
removed. Tighten the bolts.

2. Operating
After turning on the monitor, a 2 seconds test is automatically carried out: all display
segments are on; after such a test, working hours are displayed for about 3 seconds,
then engine RPMs are displayed and the other display indicators show the working
status:
a

a) if ON, engined RPMs are displayed;
b) if ON, working hours are displayed;
c) if ON, reverse phase is currenlty ongoing (emergency condition)
d) if ON, “auto-feed” procedure is currently ongoing (emergency condition).
During standard operation the monitor detects engine RPMs. In case they go below
the minimum programmed value, the monitor enables one of the emergency
procedures listed below. All emergency procedures are back off, after the RPMs are
restored over the maximum programmed value. The monitor is now back in standard
working condition.
Emergency procedures are different depending on the "type" parameter programmed.

This procedure is applied on those machines only where the ACTIVATION of the
solenoid valves allows to protect the engine against excessive stress.

During operation, working hours can always be displayed by switching for a BRIEF
INTERVAL key (+) or (-). The display shows now the ref. indicator “b” on page 7
and working hours are displayed for 3 seconds. During this interval the EVS solenoid
valve is energized or de-energized by the monitor (according to what programmed in
“type” parameter) only if the “auto-feed” function has been enabled (see chapter 5.3),
whereas the EVR solenoid valve is never energized.

reached, then steps of 1 hour until 9999 hours.
hours
Working hours increase only if RPMs > 500.
6. Setting
The device has two setting phases: “user” setting and "manufacturer" setting. Both
programming phases can be carried out with the engine operating (RPMs > 500). The
operator shall complete the procedure for each phase by confirming all parameters at
a time to allow all modified parameters are stored. Otherwise, if the operator is within
one programming phase and no key is selected for an interval of 7 seconds, the
monitor quits the phase WITHOUT storing any executed changes.
The “user” phase permits programming of the following parameters:
•
•
•
•
Minimum value for RPMs
Maximum value for RPMs
Machine type selection (with or without reverse)
Reverse time (not used if the reverse valve is not present).
The “manufacturer” setting allows programming of the following parameter:
• Pulses/revolution for engine RPMs counting (Set By Factory)
NOTES: the parameter value is kept displayed during each programming phase; the
parameter name is displayed only while going from one parameter to the next one or
when keys + (plus) and (-) minus are simultaneously pressed.
For safety purposes, the EVS solenoid valve is energized or de-energized (according
to what programmed in “type” parameter) by the monitor each time a programming
phase is entered only if the “auto-feed” function has been enabled (see par. 5.3),
whereas the EVR solenoid valve is never energized.
7. “User” setting
To enter the “user” programming phase, with the monitor ON keep key PROG
pressed for at least 2 seconds and until the first parameter "HI" (i.e. RPMs minimum
permitted value) is displayed. After an interval of 1 second the current programmed
value is displayed (es. 4800RPM).

How to activate and de-activate the “auto-feed” function
The device has a further programming phase, meant for activating and de-activating
the “auto-feed” function. This function includes the emergency procedures previously
described.
NOTE: when the “auto-feed” function is de-activated, the monitor features
exclusively revolution counter function and hours counter function; the reverse
solenoid valve EVR is always de-energized and the EVS safety valve can be deenergized (if “type 0” operation type is selected) or energized (if “type 1” operation
type is selected). The monitor is supplied as a standard with the “auto-feed” function
enabled; in fact, when the monitor is switched-on with engine off (RPM =0), the ref.
indicator "d" picture "A" pag. 7 is on.
Press key (-) minus for at least 3 seconds to de-activate the “auto-feed” function and
until the sequence below is displayed:

2. Operating
After turning on the monitor, a 2 seconds test is automatically carried out: all display
segments are on; after such a test, working hours are displayed for about 3 seconds,
then engine RPMs are displayed and the other display indicators show the working
status:
a
b
RPM

Picture A
a) if ON, engined RPMs are displayed;
b) if ON, working hours are displayed;
c) if ON, reverse phase is currenlty ongoing (emergency condition)
d) if ON, “auto-feed” procedure is currently ongoing (emergency condition).
During standard operation the monitor detects engine RPMs. In case they go below
the minimum programmed value, the monitor enables one of the emergency
procedures listed below. All emergency procedures are back off, after the RPMs are
restored over the maximum programmed value. The monitor is now back in standard
working condition.
Emergency procedures are different depending on the "type" parameter programmed.

During operation, working hours can always be displayed by switching for a BRIEF
INTERVAL key (+) or (-). The display shows now the ref. indicator “b” on page 7
and working hours are displayed for 3 seconds. During this interval the EVS solenoid
valve is energized or de-energized by the monitor (according to what programmed in
“type” parameter) only if the “auto-feed” function has been enabled (see chapter 5.3),
whereas the EVR solenoid valve is never energized.

reached, then steps of 1 hour until 9999 hours.
hours
Working hours increase only if RPMs > 500.
6. Setting
The device has two setting phases: “user” setting and "manufacturer" setting. Both
programming phases can be carried out with the engine operating (RPMs > 500). The
operator shall complete the procedure for each phase by confirming all parameters at
a time to allow all modified parameters are stored. Otherwise, if the operator is within
one programming phase and no key is selected for an interval of 7 seconds, the
monitor quits the phase WITHOUT storing any executed changes.
The “user” phase permits programming of the following parameters:
•
•
•
•
Minimum value for RPMs
Maximum value for RPMs
Machine type selection (with or without reverse)
Reverse time (not used if the reverse valve is not present).
The “manufacturer” setting allows programming of the following parameter:
• Pulses/revolution for engine RPMs counting (Set By Factory)
NOTES: the parameter value is kept displayed during each programming phase; the
parameter name is displayed only while going from one parameter to the next one or
when keys + (plus) and (-) minus are simultaneously pressed.
For safety purposes, the EVS solenoid valve is energized or de-energized (according
to what programmed in “type” parameter) by the monitor each time a programming
phase is entered only if the “auto-feed” function has been enabled (see par. 5.3),
whereas the EVR solenoid valve is never energized.
7. “User” setting
To enter the “user” programming phase, with the monitor ON keep key PROG
pressed for at least 2 seconds and until the first parameter "HI" (i.e. RPMs minimum
permitted value) is displayed. After an interval of 1 second the current programmed
value is displayed (es. 4800RPM).

How to activate and de-activate the “auto-feed” function
The device has a further programming phase, meant for activating and de-activating
the “auto-feed” function. This function includes the emergency procedures previously
described.
NOTE: when the “auto-feed” function is de-activated, the monitor features
exclusively revolution counter function and hours counter function; the reverse
solenoid valve EVR is always de-energized and the EVS safety valve can be deenergized (if “type 0” operation type is selected) or energized (if “type 1” operation
type is selected). The monitor is supplied as a standard with the “auto-feed” function
enabled; in fact, when the monitor is switched-on with engine off (RPM =0), the ref.
indicator "d" picture "A" pag. 7 is on.
Press key (-) minus for at least 3 seconds to de-activate the “auto-feed” function and
until the sequence below is displayed:

Axles equipped with Dexter's E-Z Lube feature can be periodically lubricated without removing
the hubs from the axle. This feature consists of axle spindles that have been specially drilled and
assembled with grease fittings in their ends. When grease is pumped into the fitting, it is
channeled to the inner bearing and then flows back to the outer bearing and eventually back out
the grease cap hole.
1. Remove the rubber plug from the end of the grease cap.
2. Place a standard grease gun onto the grease fitting located in the end of the
spindle. Make sure the grease gun nozzle is fully engaged on the fitting.
3. Pump grease into the grease fitting. The old, displaced grease will begin to flow
back out the cap around the grease gun nozzle.
4. When the new, clean grease is observed, remove the grease gun, wipe off any
excess, and replace the rubber plug in the cap.
The E-Z Lube feature is designed to allow immersion in water. Axles not equipped with E-Z
Lube are not designed for immersion and bearings should be repacked after each immersion. If
hubs are removed from an axle with an E-Z Lube feature, it is imperative that the seals be
replaced before bearing lubrication. Otherwise, the chance of grease getting on brake linings is
greatly increased.
NOTE: The convenient lubrication provisions of the E-Z Lube must not replace periodic inspection of the
bearings.
CAUTION
Do not mix Lithium, calcium, sodium or barium complex greases
due to possible compatibility problems. When changing from one
type of grease to another, it is necessary to insure all the old
grease has been removed.
If your axles are equipped with oil-lubricated hubs, then your lubrication procedure is to
periodically fill the hub with high quality hypoid gear oil to the level indicated on the clear
plastic oil cap. The oil can be filled through the rubber plug hole in the cap.
