Vermeer BC2000XL Wood Chipper

Vermeer BC2000XLBC2000XL

A more powerful way to clear. The Vermeer BC2000XL brush chipper handles high-volume organic chipping projects with ease. With three Caterpillar Tier II engine options, the drum-style chipper is big enough to tackle some of the toughest land-clearing jobs. Dual spring-tensioned feed rollers feature a unique vertical design adjusting to handle unusual bends and twists in brush material and adapting insize to handle limbs up to 20" (51 cm) in diameter. The patented feed roller slide system massages the log into the chipper and helps prevent the sudden uplifting of logs. An optional grapple loader aids in gathering and feeding large, heavy material.

Features & Benefits

Feature: Large 20" (51 cm) diameter capacity
Benefit: The wide opening and large feed rollers make the BC2000XL capable of chipping whole trees 20" (51 cm) diameter and below. Allows forked or bent material to be fed into machine through wide opening.
Feature: Tandem Torsion Axles
Benefit: This axle combination provides firm and stable support for the weight of the machine. The torsion suspension helps to decrease vibration when chipping and makes towing this unit much smoother.
Feature: SmartFeed
Benefit: Customers can choose between 3 RPM "droop" settings to make the BC2000XL fit their specific application. A simple "plug in" cartridge is installed just like on the BC1400XL and BC1800XL to change from one RPM bottom setting to another.
Feature: 3 Caterpillar 3126B Tier II Engine Options available
Benefit: Added HP can increase productivity. For larger diameter material processing the combination of the HP and SmartFeed can be beneficial in decreasing job time.
