Brush Chippers | Vermeer BC1200XL Tier 4i (Stage IIIB) Brush Chipper
When there’s tough brush-clearing work to do, you can count on a Vermeer BC1200XL to handle it. Available with a 120 hp (89.5 kW) Cummins Tier 4i (Stage IIIB) diesel engine, the BC1200XL is rugged, powerful, and offers innovative features designed for safety and performance. Not only does the BC1200XL tear through material up to 12" (30.5 cm) in diameter, its patented productivity enhancements help make the job easy.

Features and Benefits

  • Get more done thanks do the aggressive feeding action of dual horizontal offset feed rollers.
  • Protect your engine with the SmartFeed system, which monitors engine speed and stops or reverses the feed rollers if needed.
  • Take on the heavy work with an optional winch for effortless handling of large logs.
  • Prevent premature wear to the belt-drive system using the clutchless PTO system, which prevents high-speed engagement of the cutter drum.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
