Vermeer's BC1200XL brush chipper features a dual-horizontal offset feed roller design that improves performance by aggressively grabbing and feeding material up to 12 inches into the chipper drum. A clutchless PTO system is designed to prevent high-idle engagement of the cutter drum and the exclusive SmartFeed system automatically monitors engine speed and stops or reverses the unit's feed rollers if needed. A removable choker chain connects the winch line to logs while the winch interlock hook stores the winch line out of the normal material flow. A hydraulic down-pressure feature on the upper feed roller allows the BC1200XL to crush material.
