Wood chipper clutch
My Tomahawk wood chipper / shredder is acting up. When I start work, it seems to chip OK. After 10 minutes or so, there is no power to the chipper flywheel. I have decided that I do need a new belt. While taking things apart, I opened up the clutch and cleaned out a LOT of dirt. I am wondering if everything is as it should be in the clutch. It is just metal to metal ( shoes and drum) -- should there be something in the way of a friction mateial on the shoes ( and it is all worn away ???) Or is th clutch as it should be and the belt is probably all I need? Hopefully, I have attached a photo to show shoes and inside of drum.
