The first step to starting up your chipper is to position the wood chipper on flat, dry ground and made sure the machine cannot be moved.
Then make sure that the Fuel Shut-Off Valve is in the ‘ON‘ position.
Move the Choke Control Lever to the ‘CHOKE‘ position (this is only required if the engine is cold).
Move the throttle control lever to the ‘FAST‘ position.
Turn the Ignition Switch to the ‘ON’ position. Grasp the Recoil Starter Handle and slowly pull until you feel resistance. Let the cord retract a little bit then pull the cord rapidly to start the engine. One or two pulls usually starts the engine.
Move the Choke Control Lever (if used for a cold engine) slowly back to the ‘RUN‘ position when the engine is running well.
If the wood chipper has not been running (cold engine), warm up the engine by running the engine at half throttle for 3 – 4 minutes, then advance the engine throttle control to the maximum speed.
When you’d like to stop the engine.
Simply move the throttle lever to ‘IDLE‘ and then turn the Ignition Switch to the ‘OFF’ position.
