Some people are not to be trusted with machinery with moving parts. You found a prime example, Kevin...

After some very careful Craig's List shopping I scored an exact replacement in perfect condition. It turns out it was being sold by a guy I know that owns a local wine shop.

Very low hours and this one has the catcher bag I was missing. Also this one has a build date that is a month later so its newer. It was built in July of 91. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

One difference is this one has an updated blade design that makes it harder to bend the leaf chopper blades if you somehow manage to force a big stick in them.

The replacement unit cost me $150, I should be able to sell the broken one for $40, so my neighbor is only out $110.

So for all the hassle I get a better, lower hour chipper and the missing catcher bag.

What I don't get back is the time I spent looking for a replacement. I did advertise on Craig's list that I needed a broken unit for parts. I may have a line on one for free. So I may come out a tiny bit ahead if I build a spare. Perhaps my neighbor wants to buy it? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

I would love to.... LMAO! It took me a while to open the link since I have not had flash working on Win 7's browser.

Too funny, Thanks for the link. Of course I was a dumb <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/butwiggle.gif" alt="" /> for loaning it to him.

Red is great.... He reminds me of how my dad was back in the late 60s/70s. Pops was AF Strategic Air Command flight instructor and all three of us boys were total dumb asses. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

It was my wife's chipper that she brought with her from the midwest when she moved here. She grew up in Fargo ND.
