Just got a WW Grinder Model 250 Renegade  today

been looking for a good chipper for a while

found it on Craigslist and wrote down the guys number - than lost it

he posted in in July

I checked Craigslist list week for it and it was gone

found his number and call him and he said that he still had it - so I told him I would like it and need to look at it got it chearer than he had it listed for

got it started and the B&S 8 hp sound great

It is a great condition for being brought back it 1996 new

got all the manual and parts books and the orrginal bill of sell

it looks like it was not used to much

 

I was needing a chipper - I have an old WW Grinder Model 62 with shoot that I got back in the 90's

It has worked great all the years for me and hope it will for many more, but it is very heavy and hard to move around

I use it a lot to mix the compost and to loose the compost up

 

the Renegade is so much earier to move around

I hope it last me a long time - which it should

 

I also had an old Bolen shredder that the motor went bad (still have the unit but no motor) it was great to use - and found a Atlas shredder that works great for leaves - but not when they are wet

will put it to use in the morning got a pile of branches to chip up

 

but first I had to check it over and make some rods for it so went I remove the screen and want to mix wet compost I have them ready

 

oh my compost pile is 5x5x16 feet

and I am getting all the sheep manure I want and need for free - just how to haul it and he loads it for me for free -  just a mile away from me

checked and cleaned it over this morning 

it is in very good shape - very little paint ware

it looks like they hardly used it

 

changed the oil and checked the plug - plug looked good

 

oh he also gave me a 2 gallon gas can over half full of gas

 

now to chip up some branches later today

have to help put on a metal roof on a garage for a friend that I am getting all the sheep manure from

got some branches round up and started chipping

chipper for around a half hour

it sure did a great job chipping up branches from the Apple trees

some die old branches and most branches I cut off the apples tree because they broke because of the weight of the apples

 

going the put the chips around some brushes

 

chipping and shredding thru the 3/4" screen sure make great mulch

Have you had to sharpen the blade(s) on this unit?  I have the same model, it has a tough time shredding even small branches. Do you know if the blade easily accessible for sharpening?

 

Thanks

Hi there,

I have the #47015 model chipper, got it for free as the motor was blown. Put a 1 1/2 HP 220 V motor on it.

 

I have taken the blade out once.

 

It was a bear.....

 

Does anybody have an owners manual? There has to be an easier way than what I did.

It is a W W Grinder model #47015.

 

I need to pull the blade to sharpen it, the screws seem to be too long to get the blade out without removing something, perhaps the chute?

After I dug in to the grinder, I found my grinder blades were different than the manual.  Mine were square large chunks of metal.  I treid removing the drum blades but could not remove the barring to be able to slide the shaft over the welded nut inside the casing.  So I sharpend them attached.

 

I was able to remove the blade from the chip wheel and sharpen that by removing two bolts that attached the blade to the wheel.

 

Pics attachted.  I chipped a 2-3: pine log as a test in the chipper shoot and it came out like large sawdust pellets so think it is working now.  Will know more once I take it back to the farm.

I tried to open up the PDF and it error out. Could you repost or emailed me back to get the owners manual for this unit.
 
Thanks.
