Vermeer WC2300 Whole Tree Chipper
February 29, 2012

Vermeer Corporation’s WC2300 whole-tree chipper is designed specifically to produce chips for the growing biomass industry. The heart of the WC2300 is its infeed system that includes variable-speed; dual-infeed conveyor chains, a conveyor head pulley with integral grip bars and an aggressive large-diameter infeed roller with crush capability. These design elements provide efficient feeding of difficult material types, reducing the number of times an operator has to handle the material.  The infeed conveyor chains are individually tensioned to accommodate unequal chain wear, allowing the operator to replace a single chain at a time. The drum design, discharge chute, cutter housing and infeed conveyor floor are designed with bolt-in replaceable wear parts. This helps to extend machine life, and reduce down-time. The WC2300 offers two drum knife options — double-edged or babbitted single-edge cutter knives.
