Wood Chipper PVC Leg Ends
Category: Wood chippers, yard equipment
Problem: The small electric wood chipper came with rubber ends on the ends of the leg so that when the chipper was moved into place on the wheels, it would then be supported by the wheels and the rubber ends. However, these were secured by a screw, as I remember, but they quickly tore off as I moved the chipper around. I didn’t want to leave the metal frame ends exposed, as they would scratch my cement as well as rust, and so forth.
Action: I had some old PVC pipe that fit over the metal frame ends. I cut sections about 3” long and fastened them to the frame with a screw. They are now much more rugged and will skid along without doing damage to the concrete.
Result: It worked great!
