WC2300XL Tier 4i (Stage IIIB) Whole-Tree Chipper

Whole-Tree Chipper | Vermeer WC2300XL Tier 4i (Stage IIIB)
Our second generation of the Vermeer whole-tree chipper, the WC2300XL, has the same amount of power as our first generation whole tree chipper, but has more bite for when working in more challenging material thanks to its enhanced infeed. By increasing the infeed roller diameter to 28” (71.1 cm) the WC2300XL offers superior productivity whether working in slash or logs up to 23” (58.4 cm) in diameter. Running material through the WC2300XL is easy and efficient, due to its variable-speed dual infeed conveyor chains, conveyor head pulley with integral grip bars and aggressive infeed roller with crush capability.

Features and Benefits

  • The WC2300XL features an infeed system that includes variable-speed dual infeed conveyor chains, conveyor head pulley with integral grip bars, sloped infeed table and aggressive diameter infeed roller with crush capability. These provide efficient feeding of difficult material types, reducing the number of times an operator has to handle the material.
  • High wear material flow areas of the machine, such as drum knife pockets, discharge chute, cutter housing and infeed conveyor floor are designed with replaceable wear parts. This helps extend machine life.
  • An operator can choose whether to use double-edged cutter knives or babbitted single-edge cutter knives, to best suit the job conditions.
