2017 was an exciting year for new equipment at Bandit Industries. We introduced the Model ZT1844 compact track stump grinder and our new Intimidator XPC-Series hand-fed chippers.

 

 

     

The ZT1844 is taking the stump grinding market by storm with its compact frame on turf-friendly rubber tracks. It features all the power and performance of every Bandit® stump grinder, but with features that make it an ideal machine for rental companies or dedicated stump grinding professionals.

 

The Model ZT1844 is equipped with an 18” diameter Bandit cutterwheel featuring Green Teeth. Electronic engagement means it’s as simple as flipping a switch to engage the cutterwheel. And the rubber track undercarriage means this machine can travel through uneven and rough terrain while still taking it easy on delicate lawns.

“The ZT1844 is designed from the ground up to outperform all other stump grinders in its class,” said Bandit Sales Manager Jason Morey. “The wider swing arc covers more area when grinding at the stump. The taller grinding height and deeper grinding depth means you can tackle larger stumps and chase the roots deeper into the ground. And intuitive controls make grinding stumps easy, no matter if you’re a seasoned professional or a rental customer.”

“We have two engine options available on the ZT1844,” Morey said.
    

 

“Customers can get a standard 26 horsepower Kohler gasoline engine, or opt for a 38 horsepower Kohler engine. Both engines feature electronic fuel injection, so these units are easy to start, even on cold morning.”

 

 

 

The hand-fed chippers that make up the XPC Series include the Model 12XPC, the Model 15XPC and the Model 19XPC. Each is designed for ease of use, power and portability.

 

 

 

The Intimidator™ 12XPC is for professionals focused on trimming, yet is rugged enough to chip 12” diameter material. It’s particularly popular with rental companies, utilities and tree care companies because of its maneuverability and cost-effective performance. Its compact design makes the 12XPC easy to tow and position, and its feed rate of 120 feet per minute quickly converts large quantities of brush into dimensional chips. Gasoline and diesel engine options up to 89 horsepower will keep the crew busy feeding and Bandit’s solid construction will provide years of dependable service.

 

 

Tree care professionals, municipalities and rental companies seeking a compact-yet powerful 15” capacity drum chipper turn to the Intimidator™ 15XPC. This impressive chipper features a 24” diameter chipping drum and at 7,198 lbs. it’s easily towable. Built stronger using the highest quality components and assembled with solid welded construction, the Intimidator 15XPC will outperform and outlast all other 15” capacity drum chippers on the market.   

 

 

             

 

The Intimidator 19XPC is a powerful drum-style chipper that can easily handle big limbs, forked material and whole trees. It’s an extremely versatile chipper, with one large 15-3/4” diameter top feed wheel, the 19XPC has the power to pull in the largest limbs and even whole trees. With its solid steel welded construction, proven feed system, durable components, and chip throwing technologies, the Intimidator 19XPC is a favorite for tree services needing a high-capacity chipper that’s easy to maneuver.
