Vermeer Corp. enhances its BC1000XL brush chipper with two diesel engine options — a 49-hp Cat C2.2L Tier-4a or 85-hp Cummins B3.3 Tier 3. Both options offer the power needed to process material up to 12 inches in diameter. Other standard features include the patented SmartFeed system, a clutchless PTO system and the Bottom Feed Stop Bar. The unit also features a steel hood for added durability on the jobsite and the relocation of the control panel to the rear of the machine for easier access.
