How do you clean a chipper?
The chute and the muffler need to be cleaned. The chipper/shredder needs to be empty of debris before it can start. Light machine oil can be used to lubricate chipper/shredder components. When making repairs, use the original parts from the manufacturer.
Can you leave a wood chipper in the rain?
Don’t leave your machine in the garage. Leaving a garden shredder or chipper in the rain will make it hard for it to work. After a re-fill, make sure to clean around the cap of your petrol machine. If there is dirt or debris in your fuel it will cause problems.

If you pass the disc sander over the edges of the blades, you will be able to sharpen them. To match the angle of the blades’ blade, be sure to hold the sander steady and keep it that way. If you have dual-edged chipper blades, it is a good idea to repeat the process along the other cutting edge.
Can you put pine needles in a wood chipper?
