I did and reversed it pretty quick. The clutch was getting super hot. I came to realize you want it to be able to pop out on overload, not slip. If you have a clutch and it jams, the motor rpm will drop to the clutch engagement rpm and proceed to happily eat your clutch, no matter it's rating.
If a one way clutch existed, so that the clutch basically just handles engagement and not overload, it'd be awesome.

New to this forum but had a model 47276 that I gave away cause I got tired of it. It was just a little too heavy (I'm 81 yrs old) and didn't need something that big after cutting down all my trees and making fire wood and mulch out of them. I do have PDF files of the original manual and brochure and part catalog if anyone ones them.
