Built tough enough to withstand the daily grind, Vermeer wood chippers surpass expectations. Each is engineered with exclusive features that promote easy operation, high efficiency, operator safety and convenient maintenance.
Yellow JacketTM cutter system
Vermeer knows stump cutters — Gary Vermeer invented the first modern stump cutter in 1956. In the years since, design enhancements have kept our machinery at the forefront of jobsites around the globe — the Yellow Jacket cutter system is just one of those improvements. This Vermeer-exclusive system was designed to make maintenance more convenient and help extend the life of wear parts like pockets and teeth. Plus, with only one tooth and three pocket styles within the system, you can help keep your wear part inventory low and your productivity high.
Patented design features:
- Convenient-to-service setup – Loosen or remove just one nut to service the tooth — removal of the pocket is not required. This setup helps to significantly reduce maintenance time.
- Indexable, universal teeth – Two cutting edges on one tooth equals almost twice the part use. The second edge is protected and clear of the primary wear area while cutting with the first edge. When the tooth is indexed to the second position, the opposite edge provides another cutting surface for extended tooth life.
- Pocket protection and reversibility – The reversible and bi-directional pocket design may be used on either side of the cutter wheel for a second tooth mounting surface. The indexable tooth helps protect the top and front of pockets from wear potentially extending the pocket life.
Brush chipper knives
Vermeer offers high quality knives for your brush chipper. Our brush chipper knives are manufactured using high-grade steel and a dual-tempered heat-treatment process. This technique makes the steel hard enough to hold an edge and strong enough to withstand tough jobsite material. Each knife is hardened and machined to our specifications for extended wear life.
Stay Sharp kits
Vermeer chipper knives can be sharpened to extend their wear life. By purchasing a Vermeer Stay Sharp kit, you will be supplied with everything you need for an accurate setup — including the hardware, bolts, oil and information on installation and care.
Pro tip: Replace brush chipper knives in sets of two for the proper balance of the machine.
