Checklist for your Wood Chipper

Last Updated on August 6, 2020 by Forest Master

You should perform regular maintenance checks on your wood chipper. This is the best way to ensure optimal performance and long life of your machine.

First Time Use

Ensure that you check the tension of the belts before first time use. You should then run the chipper for no longer than 10 to 15 minutes before checking the tension of the belts again on your first use. After this you only need to check the tension of the belts before each chipping session.
