MTD Drop-Down Chipper/Shredder/Mulcher 5 HP 241-645-000 Briggs & Stratton Engine Picture(s) and Description:
About Me Other Auctions Feedback Add to Favorites Contact Me eBay Store MTD 5 HP Chipper Shredder Bagger Model 241-645-000 Briggs & Stratton Engine Bonus - Extra Cutter Blade Kit Excellent Condition - Needs Minor Engine Work Local Pickup Only! MOVING SALE - EVERYTHING MUST GO! Nice machine - needs some carburetor work but we just don't have the time. Fall is almost here so it's time to start preparing for cleaning up your yard! First released in 1991, this shredder has a 3 way feed - put leaves and small twigs up to 1/2" diameter in the hopper, put larger branches up to 3 inches in diameter in the side chute or use the leaf ramp which can also easily handle items up to 1/2 inch in diameter. Capture the mulch in the included bag if desired. All controls (spark plug, throttle control, choke lever and started handle) are located on the front of the machine for easy access. This is a rugged heavy duty all metal machine. The chipping is done by two heavy steel cutter blades (new spare set included) and a set of "flails" take care of the shredding and mulching. The flails can be reversed when they get dull. Everything is run on a heavily weighted flywheel which helps provide the extra power needed to chip through those 3" branches.

The chipper blades currently installed probably need sharpening but there is also a second brand new set included. The unit has been garaged and pampered for its entire life and it shows. When last used the engine ran, but it was sensitive to angle and would sometimes stall depending on grade - we would conclude from this some form of carburetor issue which may require a rebuild or a float adjustment/repair. Just prior to this listing, we were able to start the engine and it ran well - BUT, only by spraying starting fluid or gas down the carburetor throat - the fuel tank is underneath the carburetor so obviously the mechanism that pumps the fuel up out of the tank is perhaps not functioning properly or something is clogged. The crankcase oil is clean and the engine turns over with no problems. As with all our engines when they get put away for the season we fog them or lube the cylinder with fogging oil. We're very confident this engine just needs a carburetor fix or replacement. Given that new machines of this caliber range in price from $750-$1400, for the price of a few parts and a little time you'll be way ahead of the game.
