We are looking for a used chipper in excellent condition. The chipper of choice is a Vermeer BC1000, or a Brush Bandit XP90. Any information on a dealer, private party, or an auction would be appreciated.
Specialized as in removals to dangerous to climb where a bucket truck can't reach? Just wondering what your main use for it was?Yes, we just sold the spider lift. We did not keep it busy enough to justify the cost. It is a very specialized machine.
Those were my reasons as well.Why a 9 inch??? Anything over 9 inches can be used as firewood, or go on our portable mill for lumber.
Lots of guys in our area have the Vermeer. Seems to be an OK chipper. I'm a Bandit guy, run a 250 with a winch....don't know if the 1000 is available with a winch, know the 90 can be fitted with one....Those were my reasons as well.
I've got a 2007 model 90. I upgraded to a 85hp Cat Diesel engine. The thing motors through anything.
Just today a competitor of mine was chipping near me. He had a Vermeer BC1000. The lower hp was evident because the auto feed system was feeding as such: Chip...one second...Chip...one second...Chip...(you get the point).
With 5" wood it will simply take it. And I don't know why, but he chip quality is nice. I mean real nice. My competitors have noticed and complement it.
Hats off to Bandit Industries.
haha, im going elk hunting tomorow, kinda shamefull the way they schedule during hunting season!As it turns out, I will not be at the PNW conference. It was a choice between the conference and scouting for a trophy mule deer that week in the Salmon River breaks...the need to hunt!
