I just picked up a Mackissic chipper shredder with wheelbarrow handles. It’s old like I like stuff, probably early 70’s. The guy I got it from had a 1970 Simplicity garden tractor with rototiller, spare decks, a moldboard plow, and a snow blade. He tried to brag about a shuttle drive to me, but I just saw belts...

I asked, and the inspection confirmed that the hammers have new edges left...good thing because the ones he’s been using are seriously radiused. The last photo probably used to have a label about manufacturer or model.

Maybe one day, I’ll make it PTO operated like the 59Ms.

Oh yeah, and the guy I bought it from demonstrated it wearing his Aatay sandals.

The overhead valve 5 horse Briggs needs a carb cleaning. I took it off, and tried to unscrew the fuel line fitting only to find it does not thread out, and now it leaks. Anyone know where I can get a carb or kit on a Sunday? NAPA, Advance, Oreilly, Auto Zone, Tractor Supply, and Northern do not list any in stock on their web sites, but I will make a personal visit to a couple and see what I can find out.

The cottonwoods are in full share mode here. You just see a puff once in a while, but my pool filter seems to attract them. The darker handful-size glob is dry, and came from a slimmer sock pre-filter that had dried.

While I was washing my filter cartridge, a neighbor drug his push mower to his front yard, and began wailing on the underside of the deck with a hammer. I don’t know what he was trying to accomplish, but I did notice that he did not get it to run again.

Your neighbor must subscribe to the old adage, "Don't force it - get a bigger hammer."

That’s one of my favorite sayings! I normally use it for when you need a hammer, use a large enough one, or to be sarcastic-possibly my strongest character trait.

The Mighty Mac lives again. A new fuel inlet fitting, needle and seat, three pulls, and it was devouring branches again. I could really see liking this for leaves, and being Cub-mounted.

Mounting it on a CC will be a bit of a challenge since the rotation is opposite the 59M they made for Cub Cadets. Note the orientation of the engine compared to the engine in a CC- the chipper inlet would be pointed towards the tractor to make it turn the right direction.
