We're in the market for a new 15" chipper. What's the best choice?! We have 2 crews, and currently run a 99' Morbark 2070 (9") and '07 Morbark 15 Tornado. The 2070 is slowing us down big time, and needs to be replaced. We demoed a Vermeer BC1500, Bandit 15XP, and Morbark 1821. All of them had the GM 5.7L 165 hp gas engine. It's a tough choice! My employees like the Vermeer best—they like the new safety features. I looked at it and saw lots of sensors and electrical stuff that could eventually break. The Morbark had very little safety improvements. I thought that the Bandit was a nice compromise of safety features, but still relatively simple. They all seemed to chip nice, though it seemed like the Bandit could take the biggest wood IMO. Anyone else laboring over the same decision?
