    Not used it for a while. I had it serviced before chrimbo and then put it in storage. Then I buggered my shoulder 22nd January.

    I haven’t worked since as I am on the sick at the moment. I guess we will find out how it is when I get back to work.

    I dislocated it in January. Legs went from under me and must have landed straight armed or something. Can稚 quite remember. Had to go to AandE to get it relocated.

    Just been doing physio and rehab exercises since then.

    Slipped in the snow going to my truck. Loads of fresh snow on top of ice.

    Fiona hydraulics get hot. A lot of chippers don’t run a hydraulic cooler. One reason the tank holds so much fluid is to allow some cooling time. It wouldn’t be to terribly hard to install a cooler. It’s just a small radiator with an electric fan on most. Some have them running next to the engine radiator so the engine fan cools it.

    Edit. A lot have them. Most are set up so the engine can cools it, but they still get hot enough to make you not want to touch. Follow your main lines to see if there is a cooler and clean it out

    Thanks...chipper maintenance tomorrow.

    Mick, for some reason feeding leafy tops of eucalypt through the chipper the 'normal' way, butt first almost always ends up with a badly clogged space between the feed roller and the anvil masses of leaves stuffed in the gap, and small stringy wet stems going round and round the roller . Feeding them leaves first one at a time...the ever thickening twigs and then branches clears the leaves through the gap and all is well...it works. Trial and error.

    PS I bought the chipper with 1108 hrs on it, its now...1226.
    Keep smiling, they will wonder what you're up to...

    I’d check the state of the anvil first. That doesn’t seem right.
