Sorry for long post but I need some ideas. I had some issues with my Vermeer BC2000 today. It started up and ran fine but after a few minutes under load, I would lose all power to the panel and gauges and the motor would die. This only seemed to happen under load or when swinging the loader arm. I ended replacing both batteries. One battery was faulty. I checked all the grounds and the positive connections and tried it out and same thing happened. All power is lost, gauges go dead, motor dies. After a few seconds I hear a "pop" and the gauges come back and it will start. (circuit breaker resetting) There is a 150 amp circuit breaker wish a push to reset button. I believe I have narrowed it down to that breaker and I ordered the part. Pushing the button, though, when the power is disabled doesn't reset the breaker. The chipper doesn't have a very complicated wiring system and I checked all the wires. The Vermeer service manager was helpful troubleshooting on the phone and said that the circuit breakers wear out with age (mine is 8 years old) and possibly a voltage irregularity from the bad battery finished it off. The fact that it resets has me puzzled, though. If it was wore out, wouldn't it just stay open? For 150 amp breaker, that has to be a main cable that would be shorting, right? the smaller wires that go to loader controls or gauges wouldn't carry enough voltage to pop a big breaker like that, correct? If that doesn't fix the issue, does anyone have any good ideas? Thanks for the help.
