MacKissic 12P Chipper/Shredder Engine Question
I just purchased a MacKissic 12P chipper/shredder that is about 15 years old but looks as though it was rarely used. The previous owner said that he has not used it in at least 5 years. When he put it away the last time he treated it with sta-bil fuel stabilizer and put the machine away in the back of his heated garage until this weekend when I bought it. My question is.....What should be done before I try to start it up? New spark plug, change the oil and what else?
The motor on this unit is a Wisconsin Robbins 7.5 horsepower. I never heard of this company before. The motor looks like a heavy duty industrial motor with no plastic parts. Does anyone out there have an opinion about or experience with this motor? On the motor it says "Made in Japan".....Odd for a company named Wisconsin Robbins. Thank-you very much for any input about this machine.
