I have a small Sears chipper/shredder that will handle about a three
inch diameter branch. I just re sharpened the (2) chipping blades to
a 45 degree angle and now the thing seems very "grabby" when I feed in
a branch. That is, it wants to yank the branch into the blades rather
than letting me feed in the branch gradually so the motor (5hp)
doesn't bog down.
The unit is old to the point that the blades have been sharpened
several times over the years so I don't now what the official blade
angle should be.
Any suggestions to make this thing less grabby?
