Those would be the "Oh shit strings"..... ;)

You pull on them to reverse the feed wheel if you start getting pulled into the chute. Morbark just refers to them as "safety Cables" in the manual and on the sticker on mine.

Thanks guys! Makes me shiver thinking about someone in the position to have to use them.

I saw a movie TV or net, with this kind of set up in a big ass shredder for waste recycling. The heroine was knocked unconsious on the belt conveyor. Luckily, she wocke up and caught the very tip of the string at the last moment. What a relief !!!\\:D/:tongue3:
