Features & Benefits

Vertical feed rollers

Reduce vibration and structural loading to the rear of the machine with vertical feed rollers designed with helical cleats that hold material more firmly.

Improved operator safety

Improved operator safety with a 62.5-in (158.8-cm) long feed table for extra distance and exclusive bottom feed stop bar system.

Tree Commander™ remote control

With the standard Tree Commander™ remote control, jobsite productivity is improved by allowing the operator to control brush chipper functions remotely. The remote can be attached to the operator’s belt or held in an optional bracket mounted directly to the operator’s station of a Vermeer mini skid steer.
