Product Highlight: Vermeer Brush Chippers

Vermeer Safety 0

Vermeer offers a line of brush chippers designed with exclusive features to ensure operator safety, high efficiency and easy operation.

Standard Four Position Feed Control Bar

Vermeer Safety 2

Other manufacturers include three standard feed control positions; forward, neutral and reverse. Vermeer chippers include a fourth stop position designed for an immediate halt in emergency situations.

Standard Patented Lower Feed Stop Bar

Vermeer Safety 1

A lower feed stop bar, located under the feed table, allows the operator to stop the feed of brush for any reason by pushing the lower feed stop bar toward the brush chipper.

SmartFeed Feed-Sensing Control System

Vermeer Safety 3

Vermeer’s SmartFeed feed-sensing control system monitors engine performance, and either reverses or stops the vertical feed rollers as needed to reduce wear on feed system components.

Patented EcoIdle™ System

The patented EcoIdle™ feature, exclusive to Vermeer, automatically lowers engine speed to 1400 rpm if no material has been chipped for 60 seconds, or 5 minutes, as chosen by the operator. The EcoIdle™ feature has the added benefits of noise reduction, fuel savings and emissions reductions.

Class-Leading Multifunction Display

Vermeer leads innovation in the industry with their multifunction display that provides constant monitoring abilities.  The system also alerts the operator to any potential issues so preventative measures can be taken.
