The CS7-205V - 6.5 HP Vanguard Engine model has a 3.1 litre fuel tank, and the CS7-305V – 10 HP Vanguard Engine model has a 5.3 litre fuel tank. The CS9-392V and CS9-392VRT – 13 HP Vanguard Engine models have a 6.6 litre fuel tank.

Q.

How much space does it take up / How big is it?

Q.

What warranty does the chipper have?

A.

Without product registration, all the TIGER Chipper Shredder Models are covered by a 1-year warranty. When registered, all Models are covered by a 2-year warranty. The Vanguard Engines have a 3-year warranty. Your TIGER dealer will handle warranty issues on your behalf.

Q.

What model should I choose?

A.

For regular residential properties, the 6.5HP CS7-205V model should cover your needs. If you regularly chip larger branches for prolonged periods of time, or have a larger property to maintain, consider the larger 10HP engine CH7-305V model. The CS9-392V and CS9-392VRT 13HP models are for medium to heavy duty and higher production situations. If you have a lifestyle block or are a contractor, these are the models to choose.

Q.

What parts wear or need occasional servicing? Can I do this?

A.

The chipper blades, shredder knives, chipper anvil, and drive belt(s) are all user serviceable and replaceable. If you are confident sharpening your own chipper blades, you can do so, otherwise please refer to your dealer. Replacing the drive belt(s) requires the removal of the belt cover, the four bolts that mount the engine to the chipper, and the temporary removal of the engine. While this is much less difficult that it may sound, please refer to your dealer for service if you are unsure.

Q.

Can I buy TIGER Chipper Shredders directly from the manufacturer?

A.

No. TIGER Chipper Shredders are distributed by Stevens Outdoor Power Equipment via a national trusted dealer and service agent network (See our Dealer Locator). This ensures that the people who sell your TIGER Chipper Shredder to you, also provide the best service and support to you.

Q.

Where do I purchase parts for my TIGER chipper shredder?
