Vermeer BC1200XL Brush Chipper
July 28, 2009

The BC1200XL brush chipper from Vermeer is available with either an 85-hp (63.4 kW) or 110-hp (82.0 kW) Cummins Tier 3 diesel engine. The BC1200XL easily processes material up to 12 inches (30.5 cm) in diameter, and its productivity enhancements help make the job easier.The BC1200XL features dual-horizontal offset feed rollers that improve chipping performance by aggressively grabbing and feeding material to the chipper drum. The offset feature helps the upper feed roller climb over logs and branchy material while a dual-pump hydraulic system delivers a theoretical 3600 lb (1632.9 kg) of pull-in force for heavy work. A hydraulic down-pressure feature on the upper feed roller allows the BC1200XL to crush material, improving the feed roller “bite” into logs and branches.
