Cut 360 fills industry gap with Vermeer BC2100XL

Cut 360 was founded by mates Andrew and Konrad in 2020 after they met working for a large company offshore. Andrew says they saw a gap in the tree-removal market and thought they could meet a need for local customers.“I came from an engineering background, Konrad is from logistics, and our friend Jack, who works alongside us, is from the tree industry. We saw a bit of a gap for removal of large trees that are very challenging and costly for an arborist to do manually, so we combined our skills, secured the capital to invest in a few large machines to help us tackle this difficult work, and we’ve been going strong ever since,” said Andrew.

Along with large-tree removal, Cut 360 also deals with hedging, pruning, tree-topping, stump removal and clean-up, but Andrew says their main focus is removing larger trees safely, efficiently and smartly with the help of their new Vermeer BC2100XL. “The BC2100XL is one of the larger models on the market, so it can chip most trees whole, plus it’s machine fed rather than hand fed, making it safer for our operators, and also much quicker. “We pair the chipper with a telehandler which helps us to access larger trees in both metro and rural areas. It really is a gamechanger,” Andrew explained.

The Vermeer BC2100XL is engineered for high-volume waste-timber processing and able to process timber up to 21 inches (53.3cm) in diameter. It has a 275hp (205kW) engine which allows operators to not only meet emission requirements, but also has enough horsepower to handle large tree and stump materials.


Cut 360 works in Victoria’s Gippsland region predominately, but also travels as far as the Mornington Peninsula, working on both private and council clean-up jobs, and the productivity of the BC2100XL means getting through more jobs in one day. “With other chippers we’d be handfeeding them,” said Andrew, “and only looking to get through one large tree a day. With the Vermeer, we’re getting through three to four large trees per day, meaning we can reliably tee up more work and get the most out of its power and efficiency.

“The team at Vermeer Australia has been great to us from the get-go. Marcus, our local rep, always stays connected with us. He knows our industry and the area so well, it’s always worth a catch up with him. We knew when we enquired about the Vermeer we were going to get a robust and well-proven machine with the parts and service support to match,” Andrew said.
