A rare case of the engine sputtering and cutting out may be due to the way in which the petrol was filled into the tank. When filling up the chipper with petrol, ensure that the funnel is completely dry and that no water is entering into the tank. If this happens, the water sinks directly […]
Both the FM6DD and the FM4DDE utilise a direct drive for performance, this means that there are no belts or chains that you need to adjust.
The FM6DD Petrol Wood Chipper is capable of chipping any fresh wood. We’ve thoroughly tested the chipper with hawthorn and beech wood, both when fresh and seasoned.
