I just bought my first garden tractor and it came with this chipper. I can't seem to find the model number. The tractor is a Bolens 1476. I will get a Pict up asap.

There is MacKissic info in the Manuals Forum under "Bolens Misc Files."  (I don't know how to post a link on this tablet.)

 

The basic model for your shredder is MacKissic Model 9-P.   ...The tractor-mounted shredder carries a different model number.  

 

Technically, it is not a chipper model since it does not have the heavy flywheel with the chipper knife and chipper chute.  ...The chipper could take 3-1/2" branches, while your 9-P based shredder was rated for 1-1/2" branches.

The Simplicity version of the 9P and 12P simply had an "S" suffix in the model #. Perhaps Bolens had something similar.

The actual working portion of the shredder/grinder is the 9P.

 

In some literature they refer to them as the 9MB for the tube frame model, and 9LB for the large frame model.

 

At other times they are referred to just "Model 9-B for the tube frames", and "Model 9-B for the large frames". 

 

In yet another piece of literature the one for the tube frames is referred to just the "9-B" and the one for the large frames as the "9-B 1250".

 

That information is from manuals/literature that was sent directly to me from the fine folks at Amerind MacKISSIC when I asked them if they had anything that referenced the products that they made for Bolens.

 

I uploaded them to our manuals section, and you can get them here:

http://gardentractor...iterature-pack/

 

It's a .zip file containing 6 PDF files, including information for the MacKISSIC sprayers as well.

 

ETA:  Amerind MacKISSIC still makes the basic 9P shredder/grinder, and you can still get parts for it other than the parts needed to mount it to the tractor.
