    I have a W.W. Grainger Tomahawk wood chipper that I bought from Troy-Bilt around 1980 in one of their marketing experiments. Troy-Bilt started selling the same model the next year with red paint (mine is green) and the Troy-Bilt name all over it. It is a fantastic machine but now 23 years later, I need parts. Engine parts I can get anywhere, it's the chipper blade and shredder knives that I need and don't really know where to get. Since W.W. Grainger was bought by Troy-Bilt and then Troy-Bilt was aquired by MTD, is MTD my source for parts? The current MTD line shows nothing like what I own, but I know that Troy-Bilt sold similar models to mine for several years. Is any part of Troy-Bilt separate from MTD? Does anyone know if W.W. Grainger still exists? Many thanks for any info you can give me!

    Joe, Post or send me the model number and the parts and I'll check or better yet if you have a parts breakdown with numbers let us know what you need. I will see if they are still available from MTD. My business email is amicks@asheboro.com. Tony

    Just curious. I posted on this thread yesterday with a suggestion or two and so did one or two others. None of these posts are here anymore so what happened to them?

    I'm curious too, as I had responded to one of them and my responce is gone also. Maybe the electrons leaked out on the floor under Andy's computer:D
