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.
Yes, we just sold the spider lift. We did not keep it busy enough to justify the cost. It is a very specialized machine.
Why a 9 inch??? Anything over 9 inches can be used as firewood, or go on our portable mill for lumber.
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.
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!
