Vermeer BC1000XL brush chipper now has an 89-horsepower GM Industrial 3.0L gas engine option with an electronic fuel injection (EFI) system.
A direct electronic pressure regulator allows for greater control of fuel delivery, fuel economy and optimum combustion, Vermeer says. Among the benefits provided by the enhanced engine components are improved cold-weather starts and lower fuel consumption, as compared to conventional carbureted engines. A clutchless PTO preserves engine performance and minimizes wear to the belt-drive system. The throttle is integrated with the belt-drive engagement process to ensure that the PTO can only be engaged while the engine idles at low rpm.
