    Q:Does this unit shred leaves as well as branches ? If yes, do you have to push them into the shredding chamber?
    by|Oct 5, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for your inquiry! This does shred leaves as well. High moisture content may require cleaning out the drum occasionally. The shredding chamber is slanted which will naturally cause the leaves to go down, but another branch can be used to assist the leaves in getting to the cutting blades. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at support@detailk2.com or call us at 1(888) 277-6960 between the hours 8:00am-4:30pm EST. Thank you for choosing DK2!

          Starting issue
          My DK2 Power OPC524 wood chipper was purchased new from a box store. The new owner was unable to start it so returned it. A store employee bought it off store for only $100. He also was not able to start it and gave it to me. Took me a bit but I got it running and it ran great. I believe that heavy wheel has to be turning fast enough or it won’t start. I’m a pretty strong guy and I knew to remove all slack from the pull cord, and especially any of the lesser engine turns, if that makes sense. Basically when you pull the cord you will feel resistances and some of those resistances are lighter than others. Pull through the lighter resistances until you have a good heavy resistance on the cord. Then feed all the cord back into the machine. Now you have a solid resistance pull and as much cord as you can get. Put your back into it. It will turn slowly at first but continue pulling hard for just as long as you can for that one long pull. That is my only discovery. So it doesn’t start easily but I got mine started this way and have started it several times when others could not.

            Preventive Maintenance
            Used the unit for about 4 hrs.Had a catastrophic failure. On the underside of the chipper there are three bolts which hold the anvil in place. They have both a jam nut and bolt to hold a plate that holds anvil bolts in place. There were either not torqued or had no lock tight. The vibration of the unit backed off the jam nut. The three bolts holding the anvil backed out and the anvil came loose and shot out the feed chute. Both blades were trashed. These bolts should be checked before each use.

              How start it
              There really needs to be a video most people are used to pulling the pull cord once and waiting for it to start This is like an old crank car when you pull the cord you never let the cord go! You continuously pull it in and out while the crank is turning and it will start very easily.

                Agree, silly starting mechanics, had to modify.
                We got this model from a neighbor who had got it given to them but unable to use. When attempting to start it,it became clear why neighbor struggled. In fine print in the book, you have to pull and keep pulling the cord and it finally started. As had as it is to pull the biggest fear was breaking the pull string. Got to looking at the set up, the motor is tightly belted to the grinder, so you are pulling over the engine and grinder. This is the equivalent of starting a riding lawn mower with the blade deck directly on all the time. Have now almost completed modification to put a tension wheel and looser belts that allow disengaged drum to easily start and the move lever to engage belt. So far worked great. Why hasn't the company figured this out with all the negative reviews about starting this. Otherwise great product, like the blade setup and ability to flip blades. Does great job running.

                  It arrived with a couple of cosmetic scrapes and dents, but nothing that affects its operation. And it's a bit hard to start. Otherwise works very well.

                  No. The trailer hitch hole was drilled on the wrong side so the hitch had to go on sideways and I never could get it to crank. I returned it for a different model.

                  We haven’t used it yet but we have started it. It starts a bit hard and runs rough for a minute. I’m thinking this is normal??
