BC1800XL Tier 4i (Stage IIIB) Brush Chipper

Tackle wood waste measuring up to 19” (48.3 cm) with the powerful BC1800XL brush chipper. Three Tier 4i (Stage IIIB) engine options ranging from 115 hp (85.8 kW) to 173 hp (129 kW) allows you to select your ideal level of power. Patented SmartFeed control system monitors engine performance, and then either reverses or stops the vertical feed rollers as needed. Add on an optional winch with 150’ (45.7 m) line to move logs up to 2000 lb (907 kg) onto the feed table.

Features and Benefits

  • Improve productivity with the SmartFeed system, which monitors engine rpm and senses jams, automatically stopping or reversing the rollers as needed.
  • Reduce vibration and structural loading to the rear of the machine with vertical feed rollers designed with helical cleats that hold material more firmly.
  • Provides operator safety with a 62.5” (158.8 cm) long feed table for extra distance and exclusive bottom feed stop bar system.
  • Protect your investment with a 3-year/3000-hour extended limited warranty on drum housings, cutter drums, shaft and ring-fetter hubs in addition to the 1-year/1000-hour Vermeer equipment limited warranty.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine replacement parts for your Vermeer brush chipper.
