BC1000XL Brush Chipper

Brush Chippers | Vermeer BC1000XL Brush Chipper

Looking for productivity and safety for your line-clearing and rental operations?  The Vermeer BC1000XL provides the latest innovations, productivity, operator safety and power efficiency.  Equipped with a 49 hp (36.5 kW) CAT 2.2L Tier 4a diesel engine or a 85 hp (63.38 kw) Cummins B3.3 Turbo Tier 3 engine, the BC1000XL delivers efficiency to chip through some of your toughest jobs, while the 25-gal (94.6 L) fuel tank cuts the time spent refueling and increases time spent on the jobsite. Patented SmartFeed control system monitors engine performance, and then stops the feed roller as needed. Optional sound abatement package adds an engine shield liner, triple-layer in-feed curtain and a sound-reducing coating on the discharge chute.


Features and Benefits

  • Keep up the pace because the BC1000XL comes with a 25-gallon/94.6 L fuel tank that lets you put in more hours before refueling.
  • Minimize maintenance because once the shield is opened, belts can be changed without tools, and the clutchless PTO system eliminates the need to slide the engine.
  • Provides operator safety with the patented bottom feed stop bar. The four-position upper feed control bar with dual stop positions and forward / reverse feed positions mounts over the feed table and enables the operator to stop the feed rollers and select forward or reverse operations.
  • Protect your investment with a 3-year/3000-hour extended limited warranty on drum housings, cutter drums, shaft and ring-feeder hubs in addition to the 1-year/1000-hour Vermeer equipment limited warranty.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
