BC1000XL Tier 4 Final

The heavy-duty Vermeer BC1000XL brush chipper with its all-steel engine enclosure is designed to hold up for the long haul. Enhanced with the modern day operator in mind, the BC1000XL is available with either a Tier 4 Final 49-hp (36.4 kW) or a 74-hp (55.4 kW)  engine that meets all the latest emission regulations. When transporting the machine, expect smooth towing thanks to the rubber-torsion suspension.

Features and benefits

  • Keep up the pace because the BC1000XL comes with a 25-gal (94.6 L) fuel tank that lets you put in more hours before refueling.
  • Minimize maintenance because once the shield is opened, belts can be changed without tools, and the clutchless PTO system eliminates the need to slide the engine.
  • Provides operator safety with the patented bottom feed stop bar. The four-position upper feed control bar with dual stop positions and forward/reverse feed positions mounts over the feed table and enables the operator to stop the feed rollers and select forward or reverse operations.
  • Protect your investment with a 3-year/3000-hour extended limited warranty on drum housings, cutter drum, shaft and ring-fetter hubs in addition to the 1-year/1000-hour Vermeer equipment limited warranty.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts
