    Hello guys. Does anyone have any experience with a Little Wonder chipper/shredder/vac. The model is a RV16. I called the number located on the serial # plate to get some info. They haven't made the darn thing since 1991. Mine looks about 7/8 years old. The engine is a beast, V-twin 16 hp.
    I shaprened the knives and knocked the rust off the hammers. It will bearly chip a 1 1/4 branch. The pile of stuff/branches has been sitting for 6 weeks.
    Maybe the branches have to have moisture, be fresh cut. This thing sounds like a jet engine but is weak. Anybody have the same model or an opinion.
    Thanks, Henry Monroe

    Thanks,
