MTD chipper/shredder

Have recently acquired a used 5hp. MTD chipper/shredder (245-650-000). It has a new blade but the clearance between the blade and the cutting plate is about 1/4 to 3/8 inch. This seems excessive but I am not familiar with this type of machine. Is this amount of clearance about right?

It seems to run slow-- about 1000-1500 rpm. Is this speed about right?

Thanks,

radye5

clearance of blade

I don't know the answer but the brands I have worked on have not had that much clearance. About 1/8 th of an inch.

S/T
