Features & Benefits

Stage V emission-compliant petrol engine

The 42.5-kW (57-hp) Kubota WG1605 petrol engine is a fuel-efficient engine providing high-cutting performance with proven market-leading reliability and support. The petrol engine is Stage V-compliant without the need for expensive and complex exhaust aftertreatment systems.

20 cm x 30 cm (7.9 in x 11.8 in) infeed opening

Wide letterbox-style opening allows efficient feeding of material with side branches and helps reduce the need to pre-cut material down to size, so the machine is efficient to feed. This reduces the labor intensiveness and maximizes productivity.

EcoIdle engine control system

The EcoIdle™ engine control system reduces the consumption of fuel if the feeding process has frequent interruptions. It also aids in noise reduction to reduce the impact on the environment.

Rugged, oversized undercarriage for durability

The BC200 features a heavy-duty axle, surge brake, nosewheel and jack to provide customers with the durability they require for equipment utilization in some of the rougher working conditions.

Clutchless disc drive

The BC200 features a direct drive system using a tensioned belt for startup simplicity and fewer components. With ease of use in mind and a reduction in driveline components, spare parts inventory is reduced at all levels of the supply chain.

3-year as a standard, up to 5-year optional warranty

The BC200 comes with a standard warranty of three years and can be extended up to five years. Planned maintenance packages and additional service contracts can be purchased, if desired.

Pick your color

The BC200 has a standard Vermeer yellow powder coating. The powder coating is applied through a four-stage coating process. On request, the machine can be coated in every RAL color the customer desires as an optional feature.

Offset oversized horizontal feed rollers

Large-diameter feed rollers combined with 390 kg (859.8 lb) of clamping force allow densely-branched material to be pulled in efficiently. The offset lower roller helps enhance the feeding of very short pieces and provides maximized grip on awkwardly-shaped material.

SmartFeed with infeed auto reverse

Productivity is maximized by providing engine load management to allow appropriate power for processing  the material and reducing fuel consumption when possible. Infeed auto reverse and refeed of difficult material helps reduce operator effort and potentially the need to saw  the material down further.
