  1. Thanks Jase and Pete - brute force and persistence did the trick. A knotty bit was jammed between the wheel and the casing.
  2. Thanks, that does seem like the most likely thing. I'll give that a try.
  3. On a related note: The flywheel has jammed on my Farmi CH160 and it's locked solid. Put a long, about 3" pole through (not excessive) and the butt of it stuck. Managed to get that loose and there's nothing obviously obstructing the flywheel (usually if there's a lump in there that you can't back out, you can turn the flywheel by hand and shave it down if necessary!). It's PTO driven from a 45HP tractor. Not a PTO issue but the belts just slip when I try to run the chipper now, and the flywheel won't budge, even with a bit of 'persuasion'. Could the bearings have seized up when in use? I bought it second-hand about 6 months ago, but it's done less than 10 hours since then. Or is there a way of getting into the intake chamber to see what's going on beneath the flywheel? Thanks!
  4. Anyone know of someone with a biomass standard chipper (G30 or G50) available to hire with operator in Cornwall/West Devon? Ideally as far West as possible as I'd need them to chip for about an hour every six weeks (ca. 36 cubic metres at a time), so don't want to be stung for travel costs. Thanks.
