I have a 1400 BC Vermeer brush. This is a CAT 122 HP turbo

Customer Question

I have a 1400 BC Vermeer brush chipper. This is a CAT 122 HP turbo diesel with smart feed. The feed wheels go in reverse even when in the forward position. I replaced the brain, however the brain has light indicators that show a foward and a reverse action every second. the feed wheels will go forward then backwards. this action will be continues for an hour. The Vermeer shop supposedly fixed it but it ran perfect for about 3-4 hours and then the same problem. Can you help. Bobby

What did the Vermeer shop do? Reprogram only or did they do more?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Vermeer told me they readjusted the machine and replaced a switch on the red bar to stop the feed rollers. The switch that revs the machine to operating rpm was the part that was adjusted.
