Any machine can look good on paper or in a showroom. The real test happens with customers in the field, and that’s where Bandit simply has no competition. Over 70,000 Bandit machines have been built for customers around the world, serving a range of industries including tree care, logging, land clearing, recycling, biomass, and rental markets. We are proud of the relationships we’ve built with customers through the years; it represents our commitment to building the equipment they need, then following it up with the support they deserve.
Strong, dependable equipment translates to a strong bottom line. Hundreds of skilled Bandit engineers, designers, fabricators and tradesmen combine state-of-the-art manufacturing technology with traditional hand assembly and extensive welded construction to build every Bandit machine, with all work taking place at the company’s 280,000 square-foot mid-Michigan headquarters. This hands-on manufacturing approach is why Bandit machines have such an exceptional reputation for longevity, reliability, and resale value.
In 1983, Mike Morey Sr. and six employees built the first Brush Bandit chipper in a small mid-Michigan warehouse. Today Bandit employs over 400 people in over 280,000 square feet of manufacturing space, serving 56 countries with over 50 different models of hand-fed chippers, stump grinders, whole tree chippers, The Beast horizontal grinders, track carriers and skid steer attachments. Much has changed since 1983, but Bandit’s mission statement and core values endure as the foundation for Bandit’s commitment to excellence.
