Quite simply, Bandit® hand-fed chippers set the bar that other manufacturers aspire to reach. Bandit offers a wide range of disc and drum style chippers for any market, with capacities ranging from 6” to 21.”
The Intimidator 12X is one of three 12” capacity drum-style chippers offered by Bandit. This machine is unique as it features a single top feed wheel and a 20" diameter drum with two knives. The 12X excels at chipping palm fronds and other fibrous materials. It is the lightest of the three 12" capacity drums chippers offered with an approximate weight of 4,700 pounds with a gas engine.
The Intimidator™ 12XPC is a simplified version of the 12XP, yet rugged enough to chip material up to 12" in diameter. The 12XPC features the same drum and feed system as the 12XP but is designed to be more compact and economical. Engine options are limited up to 89 horsepower and the unit features a single 6,000 pound axle with 15" tires. Approximate machine weight with gas engine is 4,900 pounds.
The Bandit Model 12XP is the most rugged of three 12" capacity drum chippers offered. With a wide variety of engine options available ranging from 49.4 to 145 horsepower and features and options like the standard hydraulic lift cylinder and optional hydraulic winch, the 12XP is one of the most versatile 12" capacity drum-style chippers available on the market today.
The Intimidator™ 15XPC combines features from the 12XP and 15XP making it a compact, yet highly productive 15" capacity drum-style chipper. A good solution for those looking at a lighter weight chipper with the ability to process material up to 15" in diameter. The unit comes equipped with the same 24" diameter drum found on the 12XPC/12XP and features the same highly productive feed system equipped on the 15XP consisting of (2) 32.3 CID hydraulic motors and 10 5/8" diameter feed wheels. All of these combinations make the 15XPC an excellent choice in the 15" chipper class.
The Intimidator™ 15XP is a dominating chipper in the 15-inch drum chipper category thanks to an unbeatable combination of performance, fuel economy and durability. It chips with an oversized 37" diameter drum (largest in its class!) and features a large 17.75-inch by 18.5-inch throat opening to easily process big limbs, forked material and large trees. Dual feed wheels in Bandit’s Slide Box Feed System provide exceptional pulling power, making the Intimidator 15XP one of the most popular hand-fed chippers on the market.
The Intimidator™ 18XP features the same feed system and diameter drum as the 15XP but in a larger capacity. The drum is also wider with a width of 22" allowing this machine to process larger limbs and forked material. A large 20.55-inch high by 20.875-inch wide throat opening, 37-inch diameter drum, and Bandit’s Slide Box Feed System absolutely dominates everything else in the 18-inch chipper category. Great unit for tree services and municipalities looking for a larger capacity machine weighing under 10,000 pounds.
The Intimidator 19XPC is a step-up from the 18XP. Featuring the same drum as the 18XP, but what separates these two machines apart is the feed system. The top feed wheel is larger in diameter and is chain driven, along with the feed wheel motors doubling in size. These combinations give the 19XPC well over 10,000 pounds of pulling power (44% more than the 18XP). Forked material and whole trees are no match for this unit!
The Intimidator 21XP is the largest hand-fed drum-style chipper offered with a massive 26.25 inch high x 24.25 inch wide chipper throat opening.

It’s designed for companies frequently involved in utility line clearing, but preferred by others as well due to its compact size and 12" capacity.
As a mid-sized 12" capacity disc-style chipper, The Model 200XP features most of the same features and options as the 200UC, but comes equipped with a thicker chipper disc and optional winch. In most instances we recommend either the 200UC or 250XP, but if you are looking for a 12" disc chipper with winch and don't feel like stepping up to the weight and price of a 250XP then this model is worth taking a look at.
The Model 250XP is the ultimate 12" capacity hand-fed disc-style chipper. It has been popular among tree services and municipalities ever since it was introduced in the early 90's. Eventhough drum chippers continue to be an industry favorite, the Model 250XP is still preferred by many due to its powerful feed system, wide infeed hopper, powerful chip throwing velocity and overall ease of use. If you are interested in a highly productive disc-style chipper, we recommend demoing this unit, you will not be disappointed!
