I was going to sell all the books Mark and Elaine sold to me, but they are too dog-eared and marked up :) Good resources!

Of course that's not really fair--Colleen didn't break the chipper per se, she was just using it when it broke.  Technically there's a difference.... <grin>

Colleen took the newly repaired chipper up yesterday to make a stab at reducing the size of some of the piles of branches that have been piling up from the tree clearing to date.  We expected good things from the fresh, sharp teeth and we weren't disappointed--Colleen says it was ripping through branches like there was no tomorrow, grinding them into an excellent mulch with no problem at all.  Things worked well for about an hour....

....and then things went bad.  She reports that the chipper began to emit a high-pitched whine and then smoke began to drift out. The chipper suddenly stopped "grabbing" the wood very effectively and the chips it was generating were uneven and mixed both fine and coarse.  Something was clearly Not Right.

Turned out it was pretty easy to figure out what had happened.  There's a V-belt which transfers power from the chipper engine to the chipper teeth and it was badly worn--it had probably never been replaced in the life of the chipper, just as the teeth were OEM.  When the new teeth were put in they began biting much more deeply and "better" than before, and the belt just gave out.

So--now we need to order a new belt!  Grrrr..............
