QUICK ANSWERS TO THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS
ABOUT TIGER CHIPPER SHREDDERS

Q.

What can I put in it?

A.

You can chip individual branches up to 70mm thick, and green waste able to be fed into the chute. You should NOT process wood containing nails, wire or metal; or green waste containing sand or earth.

Q.

What sort of fuel should I run it on?

A.

The TIGER chipper shredder runs on regular 91 octane unleaded fuel. The 205cc 6.5HP Vanguard model has a 3.3 litre fuel tank, and the 305cc 10HP Vanguard model has a 4.1 litre fuel tank.

Q.

How much space does it take up / How big is it?

A.

Both models of TIGER Chipper Shredder are 1.165m long, 0.83m wide, and 1.325m tall, with in-feed chute and standard output chute attached. When fitted with optional accessories, these measurements will differ.

Q.

What warranty does the chipper have?

A.

Without product registration, the TIGER Chipper Shredder (all models) is covered by a 1 year domestic use warranty. When registered with Stevens Outdoor Power Equipment (complete and return the included Product Registration card within 10 days of purchase), the chipper is covered by a 2 year domestic use warranty (all models), while the engine has a 3 year domestic use warranty (all models). Your TIGER dealer will handle warranty issues on your behalf.

Q.

What model should I choose?

A.

For regular residential properties, the 6.5HP CS7-205V model should cover your needs. If you regularly chip larger branches for prolonged periods of time, or have a larger property to maintain, consider the more powerful 10HP CH7-305V model.

Q.

What parts wear or need occasional servicing? Can I do this?

A.

The chipper blades, shredder knives, chipper anvil, and drive belt(s) are all user serviceable and replaceable. If you are confident sharpening your own chipper blades, you can do so, otherwise please refer to your dealer. Replacing the drive belt(s) requires the removal of the belt cover, the four bolts that mount the engine to the chipper, and the temporary removal of the engine. While this is much less difficult that it may sound, please refer to your dealer for service if you are unsure.

Q.

Can I buy TIGER Chipper Shredders directly from the manufacturer?

A.

No. Stevens Outdoor Power Equipment distributes TIGER through our network of trusted dealers and service agents (See our Dealer Locator). This ensures that the people who sell you your TIGER also provide the best service and support for your TIGER.

Q.

Where do I purchase parts for my TIGER chipper shredder?
