I have a Craftsman 8.0 horsepower Chipper-Shredder that has recently thrown a flail blade out of the discharge chute. The flail blade came unpinned from the Impeller assembly and has damaged the impeller assembly. I have removed the chutes and outer flail housing.
My first question is how is the impeller assembly removed from inner flail housing and ultimately the engine? Secondly, will the replacement part currently available be useable on the 8.0 horsepower chipper? Thirdly does the impeller assembly complete include flail blades, chipper blades and shredder blade all attached?
Any assistance anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
