Vermeer Corp. expanded its line of AX brush chippers with the new AX17 brush chipper model.

  • Designed for tree care contractors performing high-production arborist work, the Vermeer AX17 brush chipper features an intelligent feed system that includes the exclusive Vermeer SmartFeed and SmartCrush systems.
  • The AX17 is convenient to transport in congested urban areas with its single axle and weight under 10,000 pounds, even with optional accessories attached.
  • It features a patented winch boom that can be raised out of the way when not in use and a patented bottom feed stop bar.
  • The Vermeer AX17 brush chipper is powered by a 130-hp Cummins T4F diesel engine and has a 26-inch  drum with two knives.
  • It is equipped with horizontal offset feed rollers and a durable, fixed infeed table to take in large logs and tree limbs.
  • The AX17’s intelligent feed system provides over 6,500 pounds of pull-in power.
  • It uses the Vermeer SmartCrush system to increase down pressure on the material being fed and assist when feeding forked or branchy material.
  • It also comes with the patented Vermeer SmartFeed feed-sensing control system that monitors engine RPMs. It automatically stops, reverses and shifts material back and forth to help reduce the need for labor at the rear of the machine.
  • Operators can use a full-function remote to operate the feed rollers, move forward or in reverse, stop the machine, control the infeed crush feature and rotate the chipper’s chute while away from the machine, further reducing the need for labor.
  • Other features of the new Vermeer AX17 brush chipper include an easy-to-access lower clean-out door and the Vermeer EcoIdle engine control system that minimizes fuel consumption when the machine isn’t actively being fed.
