Replacing Flails on your 2050/2090 chipper shredder.
So it's that time you determined you need to change the flails on your 2050 wood chipper shredder or 2090 model. We have compiled below a quick service guide that will help you make this job as smooth as possible. Time to complete: approx 10-15 mins (on each pin).
Make sure to gather the right set of tools. Above is a picture of the tools we will utilize for this change.
Tools to use:
1- Flat head Screwdriver

2- 9/16" hex wrench
Pull out the safety cotter pin located on behind the belt guard. Make sure to take out the one on the left (facing the unit).
Pull out the L-pin towards you. This will free up the flat screen inside the unit before removal.
Open the front cover of the chipper by loosening all 3/8" hex bolts (8 sets total). Then, pull the front cover towards you to remove the cover and the flat screen altogether.
Loosen the screws on the side chute and remove.

Remove the belt guard. step (2)
With the pliers, straighten out the two cotter pins on each side of the rear plate.
Get a good grip with the pliers on the cotter pin's head and pull swiftly.
Make sure to mark every spacer on each set. It is very important to do this in order to have it properly set up when reassembling.
Align the rotor pin with the hole on the back of the chipper and remove it with a small chisel and a hammer out through the chute's side.
Inspect every element of the flail setup. Replace flails and reassemble. If you didn't get a chance to mark the spacers or the order of assembly for each pin refer to rotor flail component schematics.
