BC1000E

The BC1000E by VBM offers a variety of features that make it a safe, durable, and productive electric-powered stationary brush chipper.

Features and benefits

  • Enhance operator safety with the patented bottom feed stop bar with dual reset/hold-to-run buttons.  The feed stop bar is strategically located to make it possible for an operator to strike the bar and shut off the feed either interntionally or automatically in an emergency.
  • Increase operator productivity and reduce strain on components with the exclusive SmartFeed system. The feed-sensing control system monitors motor current and automatically stops and reverses the feed roller when processing larger, hardwood material.
  • Avoid having to trim material before feeding into the chipper, thanks to the large 30.5 cm x 43.2 cm (12" x 17") feed opening.
  • Produce consistent-sized chips for biofuels, waste reduction and other industrial uses.
  • Chip through tough material via its two Siemens induction motors ― a 55 kW (73.8 hp) motor that powers the drum and a 3 kW (4 hp) motor on the infeed rollers.
  • Operate without environmental damage to electric motors thanks to IP55 rated enclosures that protect from dust and low pressure jets of water.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
