    Hey Guys!

    I was curious if anyone knows where one can get used parts for a 2008, BC1500. I am looking for a replacement engine hood. I would also like to know in general just in case I am looking for something else down the road.

    Thank You

    Salvage plastic hoods for this or any Vermeer chipper are non existent. Could be why Vermeer is selling metal conversion kits, for $2K.

    A credible job of fixing cracks and holes, using a pop riveted patch smoothed over with a thin layer of Bondo, is possible. Repaint the hood or the entire chipper in CAT machine yellow.

    Someone experienced in fiberglass repairs is another possibility, but its not worth the expense IMO.

    Thanks for your feedback. I did notice that there are not many salvage locations with these parts.
