Yard work is a breeze when you have the right equipment. Investing in a Craftsman two-in-one chipper/shredder or chip-n-vac or a three-in-one chipper/shredder/vacuum helps keep your yard free of leaves, downed branches and extra shrubbery. Turn unsightly brush piles into nutrient-releasing mulch to improve soil moisture and block weeds using a powerful but portable Craftsman 8hp chipper shredder. Sears PartsDirect has the Craftsman chipper shredder parts you need to keep your equipment in top shape.
Most common Craftsman 5hp chipper shredder parts that need replacing
Engine air filter. The engine air filter cleans the air entering the carburetor. Replace the air filter periodically, following the guidelines in the owner's manual.
Carburetor. The engine carburetor mixes air and gas before the fuel mix goes to the cylinder for combustion.
Recoil starter. The recoil starter spins the crankshaft to start the engine when you pull the rope.

How to install the hopper on your Craftsman 8ph chipper shredder
Attach the hopper to the rotor housing. Make sure that you engage the metal lip of the hopper liner inside the rotor housing.
Secure the hopper to the rotor housing using the mounting bolts and washers. Don't tighten the mounting bolts at this time.
From inside the hopper, install the mounting bolts and washers into the upper lower holes of the metal hopper liner. Finger tighten the bolts at this time.
Make sure that the hopper is seated correctly on the chipper/shredder then tighten all mounting bolts firmly.
