The Vermeer BC2100XL brush chipper is powered by a 275 hp (205 kW) Tier 4 Final diesel engine to tackle the toughest land clearing projects. With a 21-inch (53.3 cm) capacity and the largest infeed table in its class, the BC2100XL allows for smooth material feeding. Offset horizontal feed rollers have theoretical combined 10,000 lb (4536.9 kg) of pulling force and allow for easier feeding of material and less need for manual control of the upper feed roller when chipping large diameter material. The exclusive SmartCrush system provides increased down pressure on the material being fed and assists when feeding forked or branchy material.
