    Multi-Stemmed Red Maples ... Safe to prune smaller stem?

    Hi guys, So got a good look at these today (which are all over the place). They are multi stemmed red maples. I want to remove two stems (4" & 6" stems) as they are ugly and not doing much for the bunch as a whole. One of them looks like it may even have die back up top... I am probably over...

    I called Morbark and they gave me a manual as close as they could to my model year but there are no PSI specs on oil pressure. I will change out fluid, might as well right? No dipstick so I will just jimmy something up to check it. Thanks for the reply. Does anyone else know what oil...

    Hey guys, just an update. So I got everything running and put some wood through it. It chips great. Here is a video on how to engage clutch that I followed in case anyone is wondering / looking. Does anyone know what kind of hydraulic fluid these take? It looks like my tank is only 1/4 full...

    It is a twin disc cluth not an auto clutch. So engage it at idle rpm’s? Slowly until things start turning and then bump it in?

    Alright guys. My apologies before hand. I did not even think to see if the safety button on the rear of the chipper was pushed in or not. I finally got a chance to start her up and figured I would check that before anything else. That was the issue. Fired right up and let it run for a bit...

    This job was in a new sub division that was recently cleared so what was left of the pines - they had high crowns and small diameter limbs up top as they were reaching for sunlight trying to battle all of the competition. Even with a TIP I would not have put any confidence or stock in to it...

    I am really liking the idea of NailerB and the second flip line tied in to the bridge in the Reg Coates video. I think I will try both and see how they feel. If I were able I would have a high TIP, three lanyards, choker and trampoline beneath me. I just do not like climbing on spikes but I am...

    The round knob above the key does absolutely nothing. If you look at the wiring behind it there is nothing going to / from it. I am not sure why it is there... Must of been something they used back in the day and no use for it now?

    Hello All, I am having trouble climbing pines / spruce / etc. with spikes and feeling confident doing it. I was climbing a pine on lanyard / spurs the other day and did not feel comfortable at all. Do you guys usually get a TIP going when performing pine removals? What is the best way to go...

    Sounds good. I will give it a go and see what happens. I think it is a wiring issue because I would think I would hear a click or gauges moving etc. when I turn key but I am getting absolutely nothing.

    Thank you all for the replies, it is much appreciated. So the silver knob above the key does nothing ... behind the cluster there are no wires going to that knob at all. Not sure why it is there. I tried holding the on / off switch while turning the key at the same time but still getting...

    Hello all, I recently purchased a 1988 Morbark Eeeger Beever Model 200 Wood Chipper. It was run by a municipality in its prior years. I am not familiar with these chippers or one this old as I have only ran smaller, newer gas chippers in the past. I am embarrassed because it could be the...
