Vermeer continues its dedication to delivering highly innovative, fuel-efficient equipment with the BC1000XL brush chipper. Complete with an 89-horsepower (66.4 kW) GM 3.0L gas engine, the chipper is powered by a dependable electronic fuel injection (EFI) system. The BC1000XL also features a direct electronic pressure regulator that allows for greater control of fuel delivery, fuel economy and optimum combustion. This chipper comes standard with the Vermeer patented EcoIdle™ system and patented SmartFeed technology and has a 12-inch (30.5 cm) cutting capacity.


  • An electronic fuel injection (EFI) engine performs well during cold-weather starts and provides improved fuel economy over comparable carbureted gas engines.
  • Increase operator productivity while reducing strain on vital engine parts with the help of the patented SmartFeed system. This feed-sensing control system monitors engine rpm and automatically stops and reverses the feed roller when feeding larger, hardwood material.
  • 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.
