Vermeer BC900XL Brush Chipper
September 25, 2012

The Vermeer BC900XL brush chipper has the ability to chip heavily branched material up to 9 inches (23 cm) in diameter and is ideal for line clearing and general cleanup needs. The BC900XL features a large 9-inch x 14-inch (23 cm x 35.6 cm) feed opening to help boost productivity by reducing the need to trim heavily branched material before feeding it into the chipper. A 33-inch-diameter (83.8 cm) disc rotates at 1400 rpm and features two steel chipper knives with two usable cutting edges each. Two shear bars also have two usable edges to help extend wear life. The SmartFeed system monitors engine rpm and automatically stops and reverses the single horizontal feed roller when feeding larger, hardwood material, helping to enhance chipping productivity. A 40 horsepower (29.8 kW) Kohler Command CH1000 gas engine provides the power to pull and process difficult branch material. The engine also offers a no-spill oil-filter-change feature for ease of serviceability.
