Greetings, I am looking to add another chipper. I currently have a Vermeer 1250 that is older but rarely gives any trouble. I would like to make the Vermeer the back up chipper. There is a local Bandit 250xp Cummins 3.9 1999 model for sale for 12K with very few hours. My question is, are the newer 250xp’s more efficient or otherwise worth the extra money, assuming that reliability will not be an issue with a lower hour, but older machine. My friend just bought a late model bc1000xl and says it is night and day difference compared to his Vermeer 1230. Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated. Would be open to a larger chipper also, but have not used one larger than 12”.
