Hello oaipb9g,

Here is a direct link to the 2009 troy bilt chipper shredder diagram,look at the model number stated in the top of diagram and see if you can locate something like it on your piece of equipment.The parts you are looking for are available,but the correct numbers on the equipment are needed to ensure proper replacement parts. Thank you, Mike

Thank tou for trying. Chipper-Vacs were not listed in the OMEParts Diagram. There was information when I tried to look up parts on the Quick Parts Look. I believe that Troy-Bilt was purchased in 2003. The company that bought them apparently does not support parts for Troy-Bilt products built before 2003.


Ifyou will send a reply to this note I will accept your answer.
