It would be interesting to find out the reason the why its mounted the way it is. I think it would pile up quickly on the cart. Maybe they channeled into something along side ?

The early 9Ps were hand cranked and were pretty limited in what they would shred. Obviously your was one of those. Maybe you could upgrade to a Briggs & Stratton 6S.

Bruce, Garry, & all
It's nice to have friends that know what they're talking about. :thumbs:

I won't get to this for a couple of weeks, but now I have a direction.



We sold many of the free-standing 9P's & 12P's from our dealership.  ...Some were green (MacKissic), some were red (Snapper), and some were yellow (Hahn-Eclipse).  .....There was also a smaller 5P model which was good for leaves, but not much else.


The original 9P's had a 5hp B&S engine (excepting tractor-mounted models).  .....The 12P chipper/shredders were introduced with a 6hp Tecumseh engine.  ...Through the years, the 9P was phased out, and the horsepower gradually increased.


I also own two of these units!

Nice find! That picture of the hand over the hopper made me laugh.
I had taken a bunch of zucchini into my parents yesterday..
Dad had said he was going to use them in Bread & Butter Pickles.
I called him tonight and asked how it went.
He said well, but he had bought a new electric slicer, and had cut about 1/3 of the way through his fingernail.
He said he puts blood sweat and tears in his pickles.
