The Wee Chipper Club

Recommended Posts

Clean builders bags Mick, and a bungee or two keeps the worst of weather out of it, one over feed chute, one over engine. Had the JoBo out quite a bit lately, did one job op that a large local company reckoned couldn't be done as access was a bit muddy :001_rolleyes: I don't care, I got the £££s admittedly I wouldn't want to try and get a trailed chipper in there. :biggrin:

Kept it covered in tarps Andy. That's part of the problem, the unusually high amounts of Ethanol in supermarket fuels soak up their own weight in water from the atmosphere. Leading to hunting.

Gonna get me a breathable motorcycle cover.

Mine has been doing this for a while now. Have just ignored it. Is it bad that its doing it or does it not matter?

I Am now a member of the club, just need to name the little beast.

Been thinking about runing it on the blue aspen fuel, What do you think on that or just normal pump fuel

I'm now a proud member to. She's called Gertrude.

 

I'm just in the process of fitting a tach clock to it to keep an eye on hours. Bought one off eBay, seems to work fine, just figuring out where to best install it.

 

Where do you guys get the oil filters from for the engine? £23 from orange plant, local dealer £18. Oil filters for all my past vehicles never more than £7-8. How can such a little filter cost so much

If you run on Aspen4 (the blue one) you will not have any fuel related breakdowns and it will keep on working all year round.

 

It will be easier to start and run better.

 

Engine wear will be reduced and many users are telling me their machines are more economical running on Aspen.

Check your spark plugs and you'll see it can't be good.

 

BP super unleaded in today and it's running like a dream.

 

Interested Eddie, who's my nearest dealer?

Type your post code into our dealer locator on the Aspen website and it will list all the dealers with your chosen range 10 or 25 miles etc.....

 

All the best

Will check them out tomorrow and might start putting some super fuel in instead. Charge the extra cost to the customers :thumbup1:

Quite right Mick.

I never buy any fuels from supermarkets.

My advice for these wee chippers is to run them on Aspen 4.
