North Edisto Logging is one of the largest and most experienced logging operations in the state of South Carolina. From it’s beginnings in Steadman, SC three generations ago to today, North Edisto Logging has been professionally harvesting and hauling wood for over 75 years.
Bandit’s Model 3090 is rated as a 24-inch capacity whole tree chipper, but actually has a 26-inch by 36-inch chipper throat opening so it easily handles large whole trees, tops, and logging slash. It features Bandit’s unique Slide Box Feed System, and is available with a dedicated micro chip drum. Depending on engine options, the Model 3090 can fully load chip trailers in around 15 minutes. A standard 7 1/2′ infeed conveyor provides further assistance for loading and pulling material into the chipper.
Caterpillar C18, 755 or 800 horsepower engine options are available to choose from. The standard forestry style stationary discharge chute enhances chipping throwing velocity fully packing chip vans to their max capacity.
The powerful feed system on the 3090 is capable of generating just over 16,500 pounds of total pulling power easily pulling in whole trees making the unit easier to feed and more productive. The direct down pressure provided by the standard hydraulic lift cylinder generates 16,640 pounds of down pressure to easily crush material into the chipper. These combinations allow the 3090 to easily process a wide array of trees with unmatched pulling and compressing power.
