Most common MTD 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.
Engine gasket set. The engine gasket set includes all of the seals and gaskets for the engine on your chipper/shredder. Replace any gaskets that are damaged or leaking.
