Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Will engine turn by hand? Or can the engine be locked due to the stall? If engine is free, do you have a voltmeter to test the battery voltage, fully charged would be over 13 volts! If battery voltage is good, what kind of start safety's does the chipper have? Are they making contact in neutral. Can you jump the starter solenoid from it's battery cable terminal to the single start post on the same solenoid? This should spin the engine, if the battery, cables and starter are good.
