No electric starter, but this thing starts so easy, can't see why one would be necessary.

Answer: 
All you have to do is attach the handle, which is two bolts. Took me all of 2-3 minutes. Also have to add oil (which is included) and gasoline.

I have contacted at least 7 shops that repair small engines in 3 cities within a 50 mile radius of my home and all said they will not touch the viper. Even the service center that was recommended by the US distributor. The area is Western Washington (the state) zip code 98327.

is there a recommended repair shop for my Viper 212 in LA?

my new chipper shredder worked great for the first three weeks. I used it for several hours at a time several days in a row. Now it will not start. I had some problems earlier when ever I would tilt the shredder back to relocate it the engine would flood. I would have to wait several minutes before it would start again. Now for some reason it will not turn over. You can smell the gas. the air filter is clean, lots of gas in the tank, but noting. Does not ever fire a single stroke. pulled the plus out and attached to the plug wire but no spark when I pull the cord. Got a new plug and still no spark.

I did at one point have a brief small fire. some dried leaves rested on the hot exhaust and ignited. very small and very brief. I blew it out with my mouth but I an afraid it might have melted a wire of switch gear. It never stopped running and started several times after but you never know.

now I just want to take it to someone who know the engine to have them check it out. I still have a pile of twigs I need to chip.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by first use Used this chipper for the first time today. The performance of this machine exceeded my expectations. The engine is very powerful and easily shredded branches, trunks and brush both green and dried. Very happy with the purchase and looking forward to using it all season. April 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful chipper Very powerful chipper. Also very loud. So far, no problems starting it, and it will run for a good while on the tank of gas, which is small. A few complaints: one of the wheels came cracked, and now I have to contact the company and deal with that headache. The other is the badly designed oil/dipstick. It practically goes in horizontally, making it near impossible to get a reading of your oil level. The instructions say the level should reach the first threads of the screw-in dipstick, but since it's not vertical there is always oil on the engine's threads, which transfers to the threads on the dipstick when screwing it in. I fear running it low on oil while being fooled into thinking it's full. Also, some of the bolt heads already have surface rust, and I've had it less than a month. I assume that Earthquake knows that people will store this in their sheds, not inside their houses, so the rust is worrisome. I bought it for my 40+ Sweet Viburnum "shrubs", which if left unattended turn into 25 foot monstrosities, so I don't know if that is a relatively soft wood or not, and can't comment on how it does with other, harder tree branches. I also have not attached the bag, as advised in the instructions. Instead, I put down a large standard blue tarp and shoot the discharged mulch onto that, then tie the tarp to the back of my lawn tractor and drag it to where I want to use the mulch. Is $600 too expensive? Not compared to the competition, but more than I wanted to spend to deal with my Viburnum. April 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised. Disappointment on arrival turned to satisfaction. When I opened the box I found the air cleaner shattered in the bottom of the box. Called HD and they said 1 1/2 weeks to get a replacement. Called the company and they sent one out right away. Didn't know HD actually ordered a replacement, since I told them I would contact the company myself. Both actually arrived the same day, 4 business days later. In the meantime, I glued the old one back together to try it out. Worked like a charm. I had just pruned my fruit trees and it handled everything, leaving me some nice chip mulch to spread around the trees. Used it a few days later to mulch up the prunings from a neighbor with just as satisfactory results. March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Used this for the first time yesterday, bring on the branches, leaves and all things smaller than 3". This machine chews it all. Make sure the oil is checked every time you use it, if not the machine will be difficult to start. wear face protection as there will be chunks shot out of the top from time to time. The discharge chute really blows the shredded materials out so be very cautious where the chute is pointing. The shredded material is very useful. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by limb master Works perfect very nice and it came with its own oil assembly was just two bolts and to nuts started up on the first pull cleared out over 2 years of the debris in my backyard in one day the backyard is one acre only bad part was the rubber intake shout for limbs it was to tight material wouldn't feed I just took it off no more problems April 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shredder Easy to set up. Easy to use. Easy to pull start. Easy to restart. Not sure about the problems others are having. May 12, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid engine Collection bag is somewhat cumbersome and will wear out. They should supply two or three. April 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by certainly met expectations Chipper has been operated once without any problems. Appreciated having the protective glasses provided as well as the appropriate motor oil. April 8, 2015
