Yeah I definitely don't want to chip something 4x4. The biggest wood I would chip is rotten wood. It's light as a feather and will catch fire from the slightest spark.
If I grind those into dust they shouldn't be a fire hazard any more.
What happened to the Briggs and Stratton engine?
It seems like the wood chipper application is hell on motors.
If I kill this motor I will try to replace it with the biggest single phase AC motor I can find that will fill in all the important holes.
I'm wondering if it's a 56TC frame foot print.

I can see blades in the chipper and it looks like hammer mill hammers and a shreader blade down inside the shredder.
