In this tutorial, we will cover how to install the ATV kit on the Yardbeast 3514 chipper.
For this tutorial, we will use:
2- Hex wrenches 9/16"
1- Piece of wood or a slab.
Tip: Installing the kit is much easier with the help of another person. However, we have attempted to make this tutorial for a one-person assembly operation.
With a wood slab, lift one end of the chipper. In this case, we lift the engine side first.
We will be utilizing the right-side axle base as shown in the picture and the following fasteners.
4- 3/8" x 1" Hex Bolts
4- 3/8" Flat Washers
4- 3/8" Lock Washers
The nuts are already welded on the inside of the axle base.
Make sure the axle is in the correct position before putting together. Ensuring this on each side will make this Yardbeast 3514 ATV Wood Chipper Towing Kit Installation easy to accomplish.
Install all fasteners before tightening with a 9/16" hex wrench.
Repeat steps 2-6 on the other side of the chipper.
In this step, we will assemble the wheels. We will need the following parts:
2- 15-6 x 3/4" Pneumatic wheel assembly
4- 3/4" Flat washers
2- 1/8" Cotter safety pin
First, slide on the washers inside the shaft. Then slide the wheel as shown in the pic.
After sliding the wheel, place on another flat washer on the outside, before sliding the cotter pin that holds together the assembly. Make sure to twist the pin legs to prevent the pin and assembly from sliding out.
Repeat step 10 on the engine side. Make sure to have a slab or support with sufficient height to slide the wheel onto the shaft.
For the next step, we will be putting on the tow bar receiver. For this you will need:
4- 3/8" x 1" hex bolts
4- 3/8" flat washers
4- 3/8" lock nut
4- 3/8" hex nut
Position the receiver as shown in the pic and tighten it with the provided fasteners.
For the next steps, we will be utilizing the following components:
1- trailer stand
1- L-pin safety pin
1- 1/8" safety hairpin
1- eye hole
insert the trailer stand as shown and fix it in place with the stand L-pin.
Tighten the eye hole on top of the stand.
For installing the tow bar we will need the following fasteners and pins:
1- pivot pin
1- lock pin with eyehole
1- hitch pin with eyehole
1- 5/8" hairpin
1- 3/4" hairpin
2- 1/8" cotter pin
2- 5/8" flat washer
Insert the pivot pin on the upper part of the assembly and secure it with a flat washer and cotter pin on each side. Remember to twist each cotter pin's legs.
Below the pivot pin, insert the lock pin and secure it with a 5/8" hairpin safety pin.
Insert the hitch pin on the end of the tow bar and lock it in place with a 3/4" hairpin.
This concludes our tutorial on how to assemble the ATV kit on the Yardbeast 3514 wood chipper.
