Chippers require spare parts. Parts that are most often purchased include belts, fuel filters, knife, mufflers, spark plugs, and wear plates.
What are the key components of a
Engine – The wood chipper’s engine uses fuel to produce rotational motion to turn the knives which chip the limbs into wood chips.
Starter – The wood chipper is started using either a recoil type pull starter coupled to the flywheel or using a starter motor powered by a battery.
Battery – The wood chipper battery is used to start the engine in wood chippers that have a starter.
Hour Meter – The hour meter is device that measures the amount of time that the wood chipper has been in use. Hour meters are important to determine when routine maintenance is needed. They are also a good tool to use in determining how much a wood chipper has been used when it comes to evaluating used wood chippers.
Frame – The frame is the chassis which secures the engine, gas tank and chipper cutting mechanism together. Often, in the case of larger portable wood chippers, a wheel kit and a handle kit are used to make the wood chipper more portable.
Fuel – the fuel is stored in a tank typically attached to the engine. In the case of gasoline wood chippers, fuel is transferred from the fuel tank to the carburetor using a fuel pump.
