Time has proven that Bandit’s experience counts a great deal if you want your chipper to hold up to the brutal reality of chipping dense, dry Aussie hardwoods.
Since the late 1980s Bandit chippers have had excellent Dealer parts and service support throughout Australia. Dealerships carry a vast range of genuine Bandit spare parts and are staffed by dedicated technicians who ensure that your Bandit machine is working efficiently and profitably at all times. Here is a quick run-down of the Bandit chippers built and designed specifically for Australian conditions.
Bandit 21XP – 21” Capacity
Bandit’s ultimate hand fed chipper. Stunning performance. Fitted standard with the amazing forestry discharge chute, 250hp CAT turbo diesel engine; ideal for take-downs and land clearing work. Massive 32” wide dual horizontal infeed rollers; top roller 16” diameter. It will easily chip large, forked material that other chippers cannot process. Bandit’s 21XP has a brilliant track record of reliability in Australia going back over 20 years.
Bandit Model 19XP – 19” Capacity
Fitted standard with a monster 213hp CAT six cylinder turbo diesel producing 932Nm of torque. Note that this is 50 per cent more engine torque than other 19” capacity chippers with four cylinder engines. Super sized 32” wide dual feed rollers and a huge chipper throat opening. Single 5,500kg capacity air brake axle for easy towing. The 19XP will process whole trees with ease and is packed with many standard features to get the work done fast.
Bandit Model 18XP – 18” Capacity
With over 700 Bandit 18XP chippers working in Australia everyday this 18” class machine is Bandit’s most popular. Oversized 37” diameter chipper drum; nearly twice the diameter of competitor drums. Like all Bandit chippers, the 18XP commands industry-best resale value when you look to sell. The slower rpm, higher torque, oversized chipper drum processes large material far more easily than small-drum machines.
Two engine options available; CAT 142hp turbo diesel and the 6 cylinder 173hp CAT Turbo diesel with 905Nm of torque. Unbeatable and a proven industry favourite.
Bandit Model Model 15XPC – 15” Capacity
Fitted with the CAT 142hp turbo diesel and the same amazing infeed system as its big brother, the 18XP. Super compact machine fitted with the great standard features Bandit are known for like the hydraulic winch and Auto Feed Plus. Weighs less than 3,500kg on electric brakes. Awesome performer that will easily process all material types including heavy palm leaf foliage. Call Bandit to arrange a test run of their 15XPC chipper on your job site soon.
Bandit Model 12XP And 12HD – 12” Capacity
These two 12” Bandits are perfect for tree crews, power line contractors and Councils. 85hp or 114hp turbo diesels; easy to tow with a small truck. Dual feed rollers to easily process difficult material that single feed roller units just won’t handle. Packed with excellent standard features and will easily chip and throw difficult to feed material like palm trunk and fronds, as well as dense 12” hardwood logs.
Bandit Model 65XP (6” Capacity) And 90XP (9” Capacity)
These compact chippers will easily chip brush and branches up to their rated capacities. The 65XP comes standard with a 38hp Hatz diesel engine. Its oversized 12”W x 6”H chipper throat with dual feed rollers is double the size of most competitors’ machines that only have one feed roller. The 90XP has a 50hp CAT turbo diesel, dual feed rollers and will easily keep three operators busy. Both are ideal for smaller tree services, landscapers, golf clubs and Councils.
Experience counts and rugged tank-like construction matters. Bandit has the runs on the board in our tough Australian environment.
