Customer Question
Hello, I have an...

Hello, I have an old Troybilt Shredder/chipper. Its an 8hp unit that I have used for years with super results. I am in the process of replacing the idler/tensioner pulley and am having trouble putting the assembly back together and need help. I would like to see a diagram of how the tensioner handle and its attachment to the pulley and the chipper frame looks. It is a model number 195437 or 47258. ( I am not sure which of those numbers is the model number.) The serial number is ***** I have spent considerable time trying to put the handle and pulley assembly back in place with no luck. Any help would be appreciated. I believe a diagram would get me there. Thanks, Tom

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the chipper? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

I included

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I think the machine is about twenty five e years old.
